The Three Stooges
Just Say Moe.
While trying to save their childhood orphanage, Moe, Larry, and Curly inadvertently stumble into a murder plot and wind up starring in a reality TV show.
I must be honest, this was not a film I was looking forward to. I hated the original Three Stooges so I was hardly keen on watching a 90-minute tribute act gurn their way through a terribly outdated routine whilst the fact the Farrelly brothers haven’t made a decent film in years was also a concern. Well even with rock bottom expectations the film still failed to deliver any sort of comedy. The plot follows Moe, Larry and Curly as they try and raise enough money to save their beloved orphanage from closure.
The film is excruciatingly unfunny with a series of drawn out and inept slapstick routines that quickly outstay their welcome. Perhaps part of the problem is that…
On behalf of a two year old child, this gets a star. Plus my rating.
I'm still pretty much a twelve year old boy, which means that watching three guys knock the shit out of each other is my idea of funny, and no one ever did it better than the Three Stooges.
I don't count Shemp. Fuck Shemp. He was lame.
Where is the duo of directors that gave us comedy gold like Kingpin and Dumb and Dumber? They seem but a distant memory now, in light of this painfully unfunny farce. Granted that I've never been a particular fan of slapstick and the like - nor watched any of the antics of the original Three Stooges - but I don't see how anyone with a normal IQ could find this hilarious.
Hanging around with three half-wits, who spend their time slapping each other silly to the sound of "boinks" and "honks", isn't my idea of quality humor. And what kind of a message does that send to kids anyway? Put a chainsaw to someone's forehead and all he gets is…
Funny through accumulation; cf. Tashlin's claim via Godard that Son of Paleface had 2,857 gags. I deeply regret not keeping score.
No one remakes mean into sweet like Farrelly Bros.
After hearing over and over that this movie is far better than it has any right to be, I finally watched it. You know what? It's far better than it has any right to be.
The Stooges made short films, for the most part. I have to think they understood how a tiny bit of their silliness goes a long way. It's the same here. About half way through the film -- if that far -- I got tired of their antics. Not that these fellas weren't good. They clearly have watched a lot of classic Stooges footage, and they have the motions and expressions down beautifully.
This film succeeds because it has a lot of heart (and a lot…
Not as bad as I expected, which isn't saying much. It had its moments, but it's not like getting hit on the head with a bowling ball or anything.
I enjoyed the original Three Stooges skits, and I feel like the Farrelly bros could have done a pretty decent job. However, while the final product would surely be just as unfunny, this film has the soul of the classics disemboweled, cannibalized, and raped by the, ugh, I don't even know. Any film that features Jersey Shore as a key plot point is just doomed to die out and become aged within 5 years.
I can respect the cast's "immitations" (For that's all they are) of the Stooges and the attempt at slapstick, but if you're going to go slapstick...
A) Don't make a feature length film revolving around this gimmick
B) Don't put a disclaimer at the end. We're…
This is one of those films that if you don't like the source material, you won't like this at all. I came in with a pretty neutral opinion, I neither dislike or really like the 3 stooges to begin with. With that being said, I believe the Farrelly's did as good a job as anyone could have, given the source material, so it was surprisingly decent. Stupid, but decent.
The Three Stooges in't the best material to adapt into a feature length film, but this works surprisingly well. Nothing excellent mind you, but it gets the job done decently enough.
A ridiculous movie, but does such an expert job at creating a ridiculous world that the ridiculousness feels appropriate. The first act grated a little, but the writers did a great job fitting the Stooges into the "real" world. And a true family film, with no dirty jokes flying over the kids heads and no song and dance to bore the adults.
It clearly isn't an Oscar caliber film, but The Three Stooges is a surprisingly entertaining movie which properly portrays the titular goofball brothers.
Mi az isten történik itt ? Egyszer azért nézhető.
I was fan of the three stooges in my youth, and a fan of many of the early works of the Farrelly bros(Something about Mary, Kingpin), so I thought this would be a good match...
I was a little divided on the results...
I liked the structure of the film-it was made in the same format as the short films from the original three stooges...it was a smart idea.
The physical gags and puns-things they were famous for, not hilarious, but pretty funny...maybe funnier when they were shown as kids...
I did not like the whole "Jersey shore" thing with Moe, there was really no need for it, why them? It did not fit or work, though it seemed like…
The Three Stooges (2012)
Imitation is the biggest form of flattery, or so they say. Maybe the best thing about this movie is how it embraces the language and gimmicks of the older three stooges shorts, but they also don't bring anything new to the pot of creativity, just performing with great similarity everything that we know and love about these three fools. Maybe the most interesting original element of the film is how Larry David plays a nun. That's all. The plot about saving the orphanage in which they lived is part of an old NES game that had the same exact plot. It's a kids film, I guess, and I wish that this is the entry way…
