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the original Three Stooges so I was hardly keen on watching a 90-minute tribute act gurn their way through a terribly outdated routine whilst the fact the Farrelly brothers haven’t made a decent film in years was also a concern.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.
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…
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.
This film is every much the knucklehead comedy that the original Three Stooges short films were. The story is divided into "episodes," to create the feel of the original Stooges' short films and follows them from infancy through childhood to nominal adulthood. They are sent out into the world by the Mother Superior to try and save the orphanage they grew up in from foreclosure. They cause mayhem in a big city hospital, get into intrigue with a femme fatale and her lover, and wind up with the cast of Jersey Shore.
This is all familiar territory for those of us who grew up watching the Three Stooges -- as it breaks no new ground -- replete with corny humor,…
Farrellys are generally at their worst when they have to pander to extreme R-rated comedy, and they're generally at their best when they're going for endearing goofiness (or mid-level grossness). The Stooges are typical Farrelly buffoons: stupid in a blue-collar, every man sort of way, adding to Farrelly's celebration of friendship and acceptance, despite handicaps, mental or otherwise. I got a kick out of The Jersey Shore bit, but I'd have happily responded to anything that wasn't eye pokes and skull slaps, which goes to the main issue - it's the same brand of physical comedy on extended repeat.
Although I didn't despise this film as much as other people did, "The Three Stooges" is still filled with plenty of failures. Despite some giggle-worthy scenes ad three committed performances from the three leads, "The Three Stooges" can suffer from poorly drawn-out gags, childish scenarios, and forced pop-culture references to make The Three Stooges appeal to modern audiences. If anything, stick with the original comedy television routine
Μου αρέσουν οι ταινίες των αδελφών Φαρέλι(αλήθεια,τις έχω δει όλες).Το Kingpin του 1996 είναι φανταστική κωμωδία.Αυτό το περίμενα πολύ χειρότερο (από αυτα που είχα διαβάσει) αλλά εντάξει δεν είναι και τόσο χάλια.Στο γνωστό τους ύφος αλλά με πολλά (μα πολλά) σλάπστικ γκανγκς λόγω Στούτζες.Αυτά από ένα σημείο και μετά κουράζουν.Η Σοφία Βεργκάρα μεγάλη δύναμη και ο Λάρι Ντέιβιντ σε ρόλο... καλόγριας.Απλά οι ταινίες των Φαρέλι και το χιούμορ τους είναι ξεκάθαρα love or hate όπως λέγαμε και από παλιά εδώ στην Ελλάδα.
This movie was not funny and it was annoying in some places. The directer's who did this did dumb or dumber and there's something about Mary and now he did this mess.
This is not my type of comedy however, I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. I have little knowledge of The Three Stooges but found enjoyment and fun in the characters.
the kids at the beginning are great. the adult three stooges are so beyond unfunny.
i do give it props for being directed exactly the same as the originals. but that's about it. better off watching the original three stooges because these dudes are really shit at imitating it.
