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.
Three shorter episodes combine for one 90-minute movie, in which the Stooges try to save the orphanage they grew up in. This movie has been talked about for more than 10 years now 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 the Stooges' 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 The Three Stooges, stick with the originals.
