Editorial Reviews

Moe, Larry, and Joe star as the Three Stooges in this science-fiction farce that has a pair of Martians trying to steal an all-powerful submarine-tank-rocket military weapon. As the Martians are flying away with it, the Stooges hang on and force it to crash-land in a television studio.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT STOOGE MOVIE!!! August 31, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This is some of the best stuff the Stooges ever did even though it doesn't have the great stooges like Curly and Shemp. It has Curly-Joe. I have to be honest. I didn't like Joe Besser as a Stooge at all but Curly-Joe has heart. He fits in very well with Moe and Larry. I don't want to go into detail with the movie because I don't want to ruin it. All I can say is that this is classic 3 Stooges slapstick material. If I made a video of the best Stooge moments I would be using this video quite a bit. If you're a true Stooge fan you'll enjoy this movie at the very least.

3.0 out of 5 stars It Has It's Moments . . . September 18, 2009
Pretty much what you would expect from the crazy antics of The Three Stooges. Moe Howard and Larry Fine reprise their roles from the early Columbia short subject days. Joe DeRita takes over the third stooge part from cry baby Joe Besser, who, to put it bluntly, just plain sucked in that role.

DeRita at least *somewhat* resembles Moe's younger brother Jerry (who played "Curly" in the original short subjects from Columbia). Curly is and always will be most everyone's favorite stooge, earning the title "Super Stooge."

The Three Stooges in Orbit is entertaining but predictable. Of the full length "feature" movies Columbia released featuring the Stooges, all released in the early 1960's, only one was bad: STOP, LOOK AND LAUGH! just plain sucked.

I also have "The Three Stooges Meet Hercules" and "The Three Stooges Go Around The World in a Daze." The only one I regret buying is "Stop, Look and Laugh" which featured butchered bits of the original Columbia shorts wrapped around by Paul Winchell and his two dummies. It is sickening and insult to the Stooges and their fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars A loony sci-fi caper for the Stooges January 27, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Poking fun at sci-fi movies and Martian invasions (both done sillier in their own right), the Stooges do a film-within-a-film as they play themselves as T.V. stars getting involved in some weird doings.
Winding up at the mansion of a kooky but well-intended professor (Stooge short veteran Emil Sitka), it's soon revealed that actual Martians are hiding away in the place as they await the completion of the professor's latest invention: an odd-looking helicopter-tank-submarine-rocket which the professor hopes to sell to the military. A demonstration goes predictably disastrous with the Stooges behind the wheel, as they demolish army facilities and then take a "joy ride" across the countryside---even managing to accidentally attach an atom bomb during repairs! Eventually, the boys clash with the Martians and thwart their plans to destroy Earth, while saving their jobs at the T.V. studio. The film closes with an outrageous gag: on a T.V. screen broadcasting from Mars, the Chief Martian declares in perfect English: "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em!" Then the Martians do a wild 60's version of the Twist!
"Orbit" is utterly preposterous in idea & story construction---but who cares? After all, this is a Three Stooges movie we're talking about; it was never meant to be taken seriously, just enjoyed. Even the romantic subplot is tinged with subtle touches of humor as misunderstandings abound.
And satire abounds in this caper as the Martians are vulnerable to the Stooges' wild slapstick. It's a real hoot to hear the Martians call each other "idiots!" in their own tongue.
The film was obviously influenced by the Cold War/Cuban Missile Crisis (it was made in 1962) in its inclusion of enemy invasions, nuclear bombs and destruction.
"Orbit" may be a silly concoction, but like much of the Stooges' 60's films, is fun to watch!

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly funny throughout.... December 17, 2010
This was a very funny film. I was a bit sceptical at first. I've never seen any of the Stooges' feature length films, and I've never seen anything with Curly Joe. So when I saw this, I found it to be consistently funny throughout and never boring. While Curly Joe is no Curly or Shemp, he's better than Joe, and he has many fine moments spread throughout the film. The film works very well. The alien makeup is campy and very funny (deliberately so), there are some really good one liners, a great pie "fight", some funny use of stock footage, and a great moment when Moe "discovers" the Martians' plans for invading Earth. The Martians are also kind of funny in their "banter". If you like the Stooges, you'll like this movie. Even if you don't, you should be able to find something worthwhile here.

5.0 out of 5 stars I saw this in the theater and it is just as I remember. January 17, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw this in the Kinema theater on Pitkin Ave in Brooklyn, N.Y. on its original release and actually got to shake hands with Moe on his way out of the theater as the Stooges made a personal appearance on their promotional tour.
It is a silly Stooges picture but the plot is no worse than any of their shorts and even though it was low budget it is an enjoyable Stooges vehicle. I recommend it to Stooges fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie August 28, 2009
I HIGHLY recommend this movie it was GREAT! The quality was terrific and it was reasonably priced. The only thing I was dissappointed about was that it didn't have special features. But that's not a big deal. But other than that it was awsome!

It's the 3 Stooges! What else can I say. You either like them, or you don't. While it isn't Steve Martin, or Ben Stiller, it is sure better than mowing the lawn.
