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the original Three Stooges so I was hardly keen on watching a 90-minute tribute act gurn their way through a terribly outdated routine whilst the fact the Farrelly brothers haven’t made a decent film in years was also a concern.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.
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…
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…
Man muss schon eine Schwäche für die Filme der Farrelly-Brüder haben, aber ich hatte meinen Spaß mit Will Sasso, Sean Hayes und Chris Diamantopoulos als die legendären drei legendären Stooges Moe, Larry und Curly. Der Film ist lustig und auf seine Art und Weise auch brutal. Im Grunde brutal lustig und lustig brutal. Hätte ich Lust auf einen zweiten Film? Aber immer her damit!
This is amazing.
If you don't like The Three Stooges, never will like this movie. The three characters do an excellent job reminding Curly, Larry and Moe original. I was not convinced at first but as advanced, was earning my attention. Jersey Shores participation is interesting, although I am not a fan of that show. Generational comparison between humor of the 30s to the present, makes The Three Stooges impeccable, the same innocent stupidity, now in color.
Excellent idea to have split this film in 3 episodes, like the series of old times.
Short of being black and white, and missing a few frames, this movie is a complete throwback to the classic slapstick of the Three Stooges. Perhaps if it had those surface details, audiences wouldn't have avoided the film so staunchly.
The fun of this modern adaptation, is how it attempts to reconcile these three ancient characters with the present. At times it even feels like commentary, as the Stooges have stood the test of time, whereas the cast of Jersey Shore (who make an appearance) already feels dated.
P.S. This has the best post-movie PSA.
P.P.S. I here now am replacing the term "Chekhov's gun" with "Kate Upton's boobs."
Surprisingly heartfelt tribute to the original Three Stooges. While it's very odd to see different actors take on the roles of men who have been dead for over forty years or so, the film lives and dies on the dedication and uncanny mimicry of Will Sasso, Chris Diamantopoulos and Sean Hayes as the titular comedic trio. The three of them have the timing, voices and mannerisms down, managing to bring them into a modern age setting seamlessly. Even the Farrelly Brothers manage to use old school techniques from the shorts in a modern context, to some mixed results in overall execution.
My 12yo niece wanted to watch this, and i watched the opening on my own to see how terrible it was and found some decent laughs right away. So she and i and my 12yo nephew watched it and had a pretty good time.
There's quite a good extended gag on the roof early on, and Larry David as the mean nun is funny. The principals do a good job, but overall the movie is like any of the weaker Farrelly comedies.
It doesn’t matter what I write here, right? Fact is: I laughed loud and a lot. I wish the Farrellys would have restrained themself at times from making “The Farelly Brothers’ The Three Stooges”, instead of making a “real” Three Stooges movie, but except for the baby fight, they didn’t overdo it.
A real homage to slapstick comedy back in those days.
It as sooo hilarious! I cried out laughing.
It is the exact kind of slapstick I always wanted to see. LOL!
We're on day 24 of a 26 day trip abroad, and we're tired, and in the first hotel with a TV since we left. My husband read the listing for this aloud from the Manchester Evening News paper and I said,
"That sounds terrible."
We ordered a room service sandwich and got a Kit Kat Chunky out of the mini bar.
I expected we'd switch over to something else after 10 minutes but then we watched the whole thing and laughed until we cried. We might have had a few glasses of wine.
I have no idea how I'd react to it in normal circumstances.
