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the original Three Stooges so I was hardly keen on watching a 90-minute tribute act gurn their way through a terribly outdated routine whilst the fact the Farrelly brothers haven’t made a decent film in years was also a concern.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.
Larry David in a nun outfit goes a long way.
Expectations were low, as I never really went for the originals as a kid, but maybe I'd be more impressed today. An uncanny replication, if I can trust my memory, and where I once saw merely lowbrow antics I now revel in...well, yeah, lowbrow antics, but performed with expert vaudeville timing the likes of which is virtually never seen nowadays. Its biggest problem, predictably, is that it's just too long—the division of the feature-length narrative into three "shorts" ain't foolin' anybody, and this style of comedy trades so much in repetition that sustaining it for 90 minutes is near-impossible. Didn't help that the third act takes a detour into a reality show I've never seen, either. But all three…
I’ve lived through a lot of terrible events in my life. This THREE STOOGES movie might be the worst, hands down.
The Three Stooges. A movie that clearly had to be made. Cuz. Um . . . Larry David as a nun. Annnnd . . . The snowman joke. Annnd. Ummm . . .
hurts itself by getting too caught up in modernizing the Three Stooges template – simply watching these homages unfold in full color is enough – but the fact that it genuinely feels more than a mere homage is praiseworthy in its own right. could use a few touch-ups in its editing, it feels like, but an overwhelming rejection of this perfectly-acted, purely comedic salute to the golden ages of comedy feels like a discouraging signifier of a stubbornly pessimistic culture.
................................................................................................................... I got nothing guys. I am so scared that there's a chance humanity can sink lower than this.
Larry, just tell me where they've taken your family and we'll find them together, you don't have to do this to save them..
They'd forgive you...
I'll admit, I did laugh quite a bit. But those cameos are worthless and the third act brings the laughs to a halt for the most part.
If you are a fan of the Stooges, I can't believe you wouldn't find this movie pretty funny. Some of it is dumb, but it is meant to be. And I think the three leads do a great impression.
"What of the year funny family comedy". This movie is really funny with great performances, direcing, score and effects. A must see movie.
The Citizen Kane of comedies.
I didn't know what to expect but being a Farrelly Brothers movie it would be bordering on crude humour. It has all the usual visual gags and the three relatively unknown actors all convey their counterparts in the best way possible. It's not laugh out loud type funny but it's just mindless entertainment. Lots of cameo roles and Sofia Vergara plays a good rendition of herself. All in all if you don't think too much about it you'll have a good time.
