I loved the Stooges as a kid, i love em as an adult. Many happy memories of watching 3 Stooges with my father. I bought all the remastered chronological DVD sets they put out and have watched em all.

This movie though?? I won't see it. Although there is that swimsuit nun......

Save your money and go and look up Kate Upton.

Nowhere near the heights of comedy like the Marx brothers, Chaplin, Keaton, etc., but I've always enjoyed their humor (esp lately for some reason).  For me, nobody does lowbrow slapstick better. I'm always like "I shouldn't be laughing at this... but I am. I'm gonna go with it."

Which is exactly how I felt about the trailer. I laughed at the iPhone joke, the hitting, the antics. And if you don't like the Stooges, then, yeah, not sure why this movie should entertain you any differently. You're probably looking for something like the made-for-tv movie "The Three Stooges" made in 2000 with Michael Chiklis as Curly. I think any non-Stooge fan could enjoy that. And FWIW, this movie looks a million times better than anything post-Shemp (their cartoon show a shining example of awfulness),

I think The Stooges worked pretty well in 15-20 minute shorts... I don't know if their shtick, whether it was the original guys from the 1940s or this current cast today, can sustain 90 minutes in a feature. But unless it just gets universally brutalized, it's something I'd likely rent/stream at some point.

Good news. From what I remember, the movie should be a series of shorts. Not sure if they changed that, and I'm too lazy to check right now.
EDIT: Just read the plot synopsis.

As far as I can tell from the trailer the choices for Moe and Curly seem good. However, Larry is terrible. As Billy West put it, Larry sounds like an old, depressed Jewish man.

Yeah, Will Sasso and the guy playing Moe seem pretty well-cast, but Sean Hayes as Larry?

I'll wait for the DVD and rent it then.  Not worth 10 of my dollars, but probably worth 2 hours of my time.

The best part of the trailer was (easily) poking Snooki's eyes out.

Eh, I was still dissapointed she was in it at all to really enjoy that. Plus, the laugh Moe did right after that was extreemely obnoxious.

I was hoping the movie would be set in the 30's or 40's. The era is just so much more charming and less vulgar if you get my meaning.

I don't know about "more charming". But setting it back then would put a distance between modern day and the movie that would have helped it, I think.
