The Three Stooges
While I am a huge Three Stooges fan, I was skeptical going to this movie. Would they ruin a good thing? I was SO pleasantly surprised at how much I laughed! The portrayal of each Stooges was ingenious - right on the mark! From Moe's bossiness (with a tender side) to Larry's perfect yet not overdone role, to Curly, who was SO convincing as the most popular Stooge. Plus, the writing not only had many funny repeats from the 1940's shorts, but updated insults and in perfect sync. (My favorite line: Moe goes up to a large woman at a party and asks, "Hey, Jumbotron, have you seen Teddy?")
The producers gave a wonderful tribute to the boys, while making them current for the 2010s - a task that was VERY difficult to do. Adding stars like Larry David, Jennifer Hudson, Sofia Va-va-va-voom, and others added legitimacy and fun. Really, if you even remotely like the old Three Stooges, you'll enjoy this. If you are a Stooge-a-phile, you will absolutely love it! ----Sam The Kid, Chgo
