The Three Stooges is one of those shows that'll never get old for me. While slapstick comedy largely stinks, Moe and Curly Howard and Larry Fine had this type of humor down to a science (the same can be said for the classic Looney Tunes shorts).  Those over-the-top physical jokes with the excessive sound effects will always give me a good laugh.

What do you think of the upcoming movie coming out? The actors look just like them to me!

I'm actually pretty curious about the movie since I've heard a lot of the fans of the original Three Stooges like this one, so I may give this one a rental down the road.

really really enjoyed the shows when I was a kid! someone told me that Shemp wasn't a 'stooge'? what did that mean?

I think what they meant by this is that Shemp wasn't an "original" Stooge, as he was Curly's replacement after he suffered several strokes.

The Three Stooges was an American vaudeville and comedy act of the early to mid–20th century best known for their numerous short subject films. Their hallmark was physical slapstick comedy punctuated by quickly-delivered one-liners, within outrageous storylines.

The Stooges were commonly known by their first names: "Larry, Moe, and Curly" and "Moe, Larry, and Shemp," among other lineups. The act originally featured Moe Howard (born Harry [Moshe] Moses Horwitz in 1897), brother Shemp Howard (born [Shmuel] Samuel Horwitz[1]), and longtime friend Larry Fine (born Louis [Levi] Feinberg). Shemp was later replaced by brother Curly Howard (born Jerome Lester [Yehudah-Leib] Horwitz) October 22, 1903. When Curly suffered a debilitating stroke in 1946, Shemp rejoined the act. After Shemp's death in 1955, he was replaced by bald-headed comedian Joe Besser, after the use of stuntman Joe Palma to record several "Shemp" shorts after his death. Eventually Joe "Curly-Joe" DeRita (born Joseph Wardell) would replace him. After Larry suffered a serious stroke in 1970 he was unable to continue performing. Emil Sitka, a longtime actor in Stooge comedies, was contracted to replace Larry—but no film was ever made with him in the role, although publicity photographs exist of him with his hair combed similarly to Larry's posing with Moe and Curly-Joe (see below). However, Larry's paralyzing stroke in 1970 effectively marked the end of the act. He ...
