'The Three Stooges' Is No Laughing Matter
"The Three Stooges" get a new look with some fresh new faces, and no one is laughing.
From the people who brought you There's Something About Mary and Dumb & Dumber comes the much anticipated movie about three morons in The Three Stooges.
It's Larry, Moe, and Curly 2.0. This time around Larry is played by Sean Hayes, Moe is Chris Diamantopoulos and Curly is Will Sasso.
The film is three episodes drawn into one 90-minute movie. The Stooges do what they can to try to save the orphanage they grew up in. This movie has been talked about for more than 10 years and, sad to say, it's pretty anticlimactic.
I was never a real big fan of the original Stooges, and it's pretty safe to say that these three were doing impressions rather than a performance. The eye-poking and slapping is so repetitive it's almost sad. This film does not honor their legacy nor does it justify bringing them into the present day. I'm talking to you, Farrelly Brothers.
The flick-o-meter gives The Three Stooges an unlaughable two out of five.
Sure they look like Larry, Moe, and Curly but… if you love Three Stooges, stick with the originals. That being said, get social. Head to my Facebook page, it's called TheBrettside, and click Like.
Try the Pita House, 2050 North Decatur Rd., in the same shopping center as Eagle Eye Book Shop. It replaced Kyoto Joe's earlier this year, and it's good Mediterranean food, apparently. After that, head to the Stooges at AMC North DeKalb Mall 16. Check showtimes here.
