Available on DVD: July 17th
Synopsis: The Farrelly Bros. (There’s Something About Mary, Dumb & Dumber) bring back a beloved classic comedy act with THE THREE STOOGES, a contemporary take on America’s favorite trio of boneheads coming to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download July 17 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Sean Hayes (“Will & Grace”), Chris Diamantopoulos (“24”) and Will Sasso (“MADTV”) portray the troika of knuckleheads in three hysterical misadventures.
Left on the doorstep of an orphanage run by nuns, newborns Moe (Diamantopoulos), Larry (Hayes), and Curly (Sasso) grow up finger-poking, nyuk-nyuk-nyuking and woo-wooing their way to uncharted levels of knuckleheaded misadventure. Now, out to save their childhood home, only The Three Stooges could become embroiled with an oddball murder plot…while stumbling into starring roles in a phenomenally successful TV reality show.
My husband is a HUGE fan of the 3 Stooges, so when I heard about the movie, I HAD TO HAVE IT! My DVD is loaded with old 3 Stooges episodes because whenever there's a show on, he tapes it. My daughter even gets a kick out of watching them with him!
Personally, the movie was a bit much for me to take in as I, too, was a huge fan of the Three Stooges. It was an iconic show what will go down in history as the Kings of Slapstick comedy. The Farrelly Bros had big shoes to fill taking on this movie, which I think they did a decent job in doing. I had no idea what to expect, but with a supporting crew that included Larry David (“Seinfeld”), Jane Lynch (“Glee”), Sofia Vergara (“Modern Family”) and Jennifer Hudson (Dreamgirls), could they really go wrong???
It was a good take on The Three Stooges modernized...it was funny and clever. I still can't tell you which Stooge I like more, but it was an entertaining movie that brought back the outrageous stunts and essence of the humor of the Three Stooges!
