A Quick Tip by RabidChihuahua
I'll admit that when I saw trailers for this movie, I was cringing, expecting this to be another typical Hollywood bastardization of something classic, but I finally watched it and was proven wrong. This is a humorous, solid homage to the iconic slapstick trio.
This is a solid homage, and delivers some Stooge-esque humor in a modern context, as I especially loved the scenes with Moe becoming a cast member on Jersey Shore and delivering a lot of hilarious slapstick gags against Snookey and the others. Chris Diamantopoulos, Sean Hayes, and Will Sasso deliver excellent performances as Moe Howard, Larry Fine, and Curly Howard (respectively), and I bet the spirits of the original Stooges are smiling upon Chris, Sean, and Will for their portrayals.
Yes, this is a "silly" movie, but if you came into a movie titled The Three Stooges expecting it to be in the same league as Goodfellas or The Shining, you need to get your head checked.
I think it's sad that this funny movie has had a poorer box office turn-out compared to such unfunny blights to comedy like Jack and Jill and The Change Up. Let's hope that it becomes a hit on DVD and blu-ray.
