If you are a Stooges fan, go see this movie! (by jrtrotter2)
As a Three Stooges fan, I was a little biased to not like this movie. It still bothers me that others made millions from the reruns, and Stooges themselves got little or nothing. I know that the Farrelly Brothers hope to profit from this film, and they deserve it. The reverence that they must have for the Stooges comes through very clearly. From the structure of the film, to the script, and to to performances, everything was perfect. The actors nailed their parts - in voice, mannerisms, and heart. I truly was as if the original Moe, Larry, and Curly were on the screen.All of that aside, the <more>
movie was funny. I cannot remember a time when I was in a theater where there was so much laughter coming from the audience. Even my teenage daughter and her two friends laughed out loud. One scene had me laughing so hard that tears came to my eyes.So, if you are a Three Stooges fan, this is a must see movie.P.S. Be sure to sit through the credits. It is a Farrelly Brothers movie after all.
A faithful homage to a loved comedy group! Hilarious! (by geek621)
To go into this movie expecting the original stooges is ridiculous. The Stooges are long gone. Go into this movie expecting a loving tribute to the comedic powerhouse that was "The Three Stooges" and you will come out totally satisfied. All three actors are faithful and accurate in their imitation of the beloved characters. I emphasize "IMITATION" because no-one can ever truly replace or replicate the originals. The actors do a great job bringing the antics of the stooges into the modern day and civilization, while still sticking to the classic roots that made the <more>
stooges, "The Stooges". The director and everyone involved in the production of this film are obviously huge fans for working so hard to maintain the integrity of the franchise while modernizing it as well. All in all, a fantastic homage to a classic comedy routine.
This is EXACTLY how the 3 stooges should be made (by The_Light_Triton)
Very rarely will I give a comedy movie a 10/10, but I just couldn't "slap" anything different on this movie. This is exactly how the 3 stooges would look in modern times. And it was hilarious. All the bad puns, the childish humour, the slapping, the hitting, science being thrown to the wind, it was all there.The story is as follows; Moe, Larry, and Curly Joe have to come up with a substantial amount of money $830,000 to be exact to save the orphanage that raised them up as kids. To do so, they must go into the world and raise this money, by any means necessary.On a side note, <more>
the plot of this movie closely resembles the 3 stooges Nintendo game from 1989 - in the game, the stooges must raise money save an orphanage. so possibly the writer took the idea from there.With stars like Will sasso who is quite famous for his MadTV skits as Kenny Rogers Sofia Vergara who is the modern day queen of cleavage Jennifer Hudson, with a singing voice that can melt stone, and the Crew from Jersey Shore, this really is a family flick that the whole family will enjoy.Folks, go see this movie, you will not be disappointed.
The Stooge legacy exists apart from time itself â€“ I loved them when I was nine for the eye-pokes; I loved them in later life for the knowing humor and the eye-pokes . I loved them even though they were from a long gone era. And most people I know hold the Stooges in the same high esteem I do. Among goofy guys like me, they are the high priests. They are sacred cows.There is a great risk in taking on a sacred cow. If nothing else, I admire the courage of the Farrelly brothers, goofy guys themselves, who would know the risks all too well. Die-hard Stooge fans might even wish for the failure <more>
of the project, if nothing else but to affirm the irreplaceable nature of the Stooges.All that said, I admit I approached the movie skeptically. In the end, I was won over. The movie's homage to the Stooges is in getting them right. All of the slapstick humor is there; all of the wisecracks are there. These Stooges capture the craziness and the randomness of the original Stooges without trying too hard to "interpret the role" or any such silliness. It's respectful of the original.For me, once I was comfortable with these guys as the Stooges, the fun was in seeing the Stooges in the present day, where smacking someone over the head with a sledgehammer is even less acceptable than it was in the 1930's. They goof on all sorts of present day annoyances- Jersey Shore, the Kardashians, just like they goofed on high society and other annoyances of their own time.The bottom line: I was laughing the whole time. If you're a Stooges fan, there's a lot to like â€“ just give the movie a chance.
The Time is Just Right for this Remake (by esstee55)
I'm pushing 60. I've been a fan of the original Three Stooges for almost my whole life. Got all the DVDs. Read most of the books. In all that time, I have seen many imitators of all 6 Stooge-members, including Moe, Larry, Curly, Shemp, Joe Besser and Curly Joe deRita. In these guys Hayes, Sasso & Diamondapoulos , I've never seen anyone come nearly as close to the original Larry Curly & Moe. And that includes the three actors who portrayed the boys in the 2000 TV-movie bio-pic. But it isn't just that. It's the Writing and Directing of the Farrelly brothers here <more>
that really does the trick. The funniest things the original comedy trio did were the rapid-fire slapping, poking and punching, set to hilariously beautiful sound-effects. That is all presented here, perhaps even more often than in the original short films of the '30s & '40s. The time is just right for all this. This is another nostalgia trip for baby-boomers like me and so many others today. Presented in the form of one continuous 90-minute story divided into three 30-minute "short films," even the pace is perfect. I was a little leary of the brothers' apparent "need" to include Jersey Shore cast-members into the film, but that decision turned out okay. Loved this hilarious, fast-paced comedy film. ***1/2 out of ****
The Eye Poking Knuckleheads Are BACK! (by This_Movie_Guy)
Well, first thing first, well done Farrelly brothers. . . well done. I was expecting to be a little disappointed and I was just the opposite. I was slightly laughing really hard. The guys who played Larry, Curly, and Moe were perfect. They did not miss a beat with anything. The slapstick we know them for is just as funny now as it was in the past. The entire theater was nothing but laughs with the stooges antics. And Larry David as Sister Mary-Mengele was very funny.Now for the tough part of the job. The bad stuff. Though there isn't really much to fuss about, my only annoyance was the <more>
storyline. Although being in a murder plot added a lot of slapstick and was fun to watch, the wife being greedy trying to kill or "inherit" has been done way too many times, especially with comedies. Two examples being The Beverly Hillbillies 1993 and Tommy Boy 1995 . It seems to over played. But it did bring the entire story together which was a good thing. It tied up loose ends. The end of the movie was a bit puzzling, but understood, but a bit funny. At the end of the movie is a "Please don't do this at home" type of bit. It has the Farrell brothers telling kids that what The Three Stooges do is dangerous and the actual tools used in the movies are fake with sound effects. But the one Farrell brother has his shirt off making his man boobs bounce which made it a bit comical. I really did enjoy the movie and will definitely see it again when it comes out on DVD. I was not disappointed at all and was surprised how well they did. They stayed true to the culture and history that is/was The Three Stooges.www.thismovieguy.com
This movie was a lot of fun. It remains very true to the Stooges form. So, if you are looking for some mindless laughs and a fun evening at the movies, you will enjoy this one from start to finish. Some of the reviewers here seem to have been looking for something more than this film ever promised. If you are looking for an art house film, or an important and significant film, this one isn't it. If you are looking for a film to be as fresh as the stooges were in their time, this one stays too true to form to fit that bill. Slapstick, not sophistication is the hallmark of this film.But if <more>
you understand the Stooges, and are just looking for some laughs, you can't go wrong here.
This depiction of The Three Stooges in a modern day setting portrayed by other actors is a fun tribute to them (by tavm)
You know, when I read that Peter and Bobby Farrelly were going to make a movie starring actors impersonating The Three Stooges, I was a little skeptical especially when the announced stars were people like Sean Penn and Benicio Del Toro. But they calmed down and instead cast actors like Sean Hayes, Will Sasso, and Chris Diamantopoulos who did fine in acting exactly like Larry, Curly, and Moe, respectively, when portraying the legendary comics. And while there's somewhat of a sentimental plot involving some orphan kids, it never goes in treacly territory as there's always some <more>
wonderfully staged slapstick scenes that undercuts that. Oh, and there's also some hilarious scenes involving the cast of "Jersey Shore". In summary, this version of The Three Stooges is highly recommended for anyone not minding seeing this legendary comedy team played by other actors or anyone who haven't even heard of them yet and wants to see more of them.
people smile and you could tell that they loved doing so. They've inspired so many comedians today and a lot of people still consider them to be the top dogs of comedy, they really did create slap stick. So when I heard there was a movie coming out where the stooges were going to be in today's world, I just cringed, even more so when I learned it was the Farrelly brothers behind it, they're a hit or miss team. But in the surprise of 2012, we got a great comedy that I'm sure if the stooges were alive today would really enjoy and that's because of the lead actors who held this film together and had a lot of love and respect for these three knuckleheads.Ever since Moe, Larry, and Curly were dumped on the doorstep of the Sisters of Mercy Orphanage, they have wreaked havoc on the place and have left the nuns there scared. 25 years later, the trio is still living there and attempting to help out, and taking care of the kids as well. When they get wind the orphanage will be shutting down unless they can come up with $830,000 in 30 days, the trio volunteers to go out and try to raise the money somehow. A woman named Lydia is trying to kill her husband, and offers to pay the trio the money they need to take care of the job. However, they botch the job and leave the supposed husband in traction in the hospital. When they try to visit to finish the job, they are chased throughout the hospital and escape by jumping off the roof using a fire hose. They end up running into a now grown up Teddy, a boy they lost an adoptive family too, from the orphanage, who invites them to his anniversary party. Turns out that he's the actual husband they need to kill.What could've been a total flop turned into a very funny comedy and I think the reason it worked was because the obvious love that Sean Hayes, Will Sasso and Chris Diamantopoulos had for the stooges. The jokes were perfect and even directly taken from some shorts. The mannerisms were also on key and you almost believe it's the real Moe, Larry and Curly on screen. Even the side characters were really funny like SofÃa Vergara, Jane Lynch and Stephen Collins. I liked how we could see the stooges in an updated world where it's completely different from the 1930's. The film has a couple flaws like how they have this "heart to heart" with Moe which honestly was never apart of the stooge shorts. I can understand they have to have conflict in the movie, but it didn't work with the characters. Also there's an end credit scene where they explain the gags. I completely understand where they are coming from on this one, but really? After the film?! Why not before the film have a little disclaimer? It was lame and I'm sorry, it ruins the movie because it's like having James Cameron doing a scene after Titanic saying how the ship was CGI and none of the actors were actually hurt, it takes away from the film. Honestly, if you're too ignorant to explain to your children the difference between fantasy and film, you shouldn't be a parent. My dad explained all the gags to me when I was a kid and on top of that what kid can pick up a 20 pound hammer and hit someone in the head with it? OK, I end my rant on that. However, I think this film was a pleasant surprise and a pleasure to watch and I can't wait to add it to my stooge collection when it comes on blu ray.8/10
