It's the Stooges; not "Gone with the Wind"!
I think kids could enjoy this. I grew up watching the stooges as a young boy and then, in high school, enjoyed the reruns even more. Never been into slapstick comedy except for the stooges. These guys were the absolute kings of slapstick! It was never about some clever plot. It was about the gags! So, if you watch this movie as an adult, keep that in mind! This is not an attempt to replace "Gone with the Wind" as your favorite film! This is a movie that attempts to recreate the gags and personalities of the three guys who were comedic slapstick geniuses. In that light, how did they do? Scale of 1-10 on each character; Larry 9.0, Moe 9.5, and Curly was an absolute 10! Curly was a time warp! A reincarnation of the original and, clearly, the makers understood that and hit out of the park with Will Sasso as Curly! The baby ward was my fav scene/ gag. This is a well done revisit down memory lane with the stooges with same eye poking, face slapping, head knocking sounds I loved and remember!
