The Three Stooges
The Stooges work may well be timeless, but that doesnt mean it can be easily transferred.
I confess that I chuckled in amusement more than I laughed out loud.

Its about as good a THREE STOOGES movie as were likely to get but thats not very good at all.

Listen to Curly, the way he lands hard on the last syllable nyuk, nyuk, nyuk.
The Globe And Mail
The movie approaches the execution of classic Stooge material in these big, slapstick scenes, and manages to build momentum as it goes along.
The leads acquit themselves in the physical comedy, resurrecting shtick honed on a thousand and one vaudeville stages, and recreated in as many playgr ..
Theres an inner nine year old in us all, dying to get out, to laugh at pratfalls, slaps, eye pokes and fart jokes.
Rogers Movie Nation
10 1 4 / 10 As The Three Stooges, Moe Howard, Curly Howard, and Larry Fine created a comedy institution.
The movie is the embodiment of mediocre comedy, which might be exactly what the Stooges deserve or would ever want.

Brings with it a welcome and surprising level of warmth, but is sadly too thronged and weak minded to affirm its worth.

Will Sasso does a spirited Curly, but Sean Hayes doesnt rescue Larry from his status as nobodys favorite Stooge.

Its kind of funny how dark this comedy is, mainly because it never seems to recognize itself as a dark comedy.
The Scorecard Review
Excellent casting. Poor writing. Poor execution. Thats the unfortunate truth about The Three Stooges.
Surprisingly, sensibly restrained and rather touching. In relative terms, of course.

The performance is almost a nonverbal essay, a way of calling attention to the delicate skills needed to pull off such an excessively coarse result.

In many ways, The Three Stooges is an attempt to go right back to basics with slapstick, slapstick and even more slapstick.

Theyre mere imitations. Theres nothing beneath the surface similarities and programmed franticness.
As for Hard Core Logo 2, it doesnt live up to the punk energy of McDonalds cult hit.
Sure, its derivative, and sentimental. But it still made me laugh more than once.
The brothers cant resist throwing in a couple of bonus gags when the movies over.
And its still The Three Stooges.But its an awful lot of stupid fun.

A little of it goes a long way. Theres a reason the Stooges always made short films.
This is not a dumb comedy done smartly; this is a dumb comedy done dumbly.
The Farrelly brothers re create the Stooges choreographed mayhem and anarchic spirit with exacting fidelity.
Neither as laugh out loud funny as many had hoped for, nor as excruciatingly dreadful as most feared it would be.
Franks Reel Reviews
Their distinctive brand of silly, physical humor doesnt work well played over an hour and a half of linear narrative.
Again, if this type of numbskull humor isnt for you, more of it wont make a difference.
The casting of the trio is spot on and the supporting cast is strong, as well. I laughed out loud on several occasions.
The movie provides its own answer as to why the original Stooges earlier projects were confined to two reelers and shorts. Sometimes Moe is less.
Which is to say, theres not a lot of grace in it, but theres plenty of laughs, and its hard to imagine anyone other than the Farrellys having the sort ..
Three Stooges is a very stupid film. Then again, if you bought a ticket expecting anything different, then really, the only idiot is you.
Its absurd, its mindless, its infantine but its also bizarrely charming.
An imitation Three Stooges flick cannot possibly get any funnier than The Three Stooges: The Movie. I laughed, and laughed...to my surprise.
Video Review Master
I hope this is the start of a franchise, but not of feature length sequels. Just three minute long shorts that play as prologues to real comedies.
