Three Stooges Movie Review
When I first heard they were doing a Stooges movie, I think it was going to be a bio pic about the Stooges, then when I heard they changed it to a movie with an actual story; I was disappointed, and thought here we go again with another remake because Hollywood is out of original ideas.
I grew up watching the Stooges every Sunday morning with my Grandfather, and I was expecting to see a literal on screen abortion of the greatest comedic team in history.
What I saw was The Three Stooges come back to life in front of my eyes. The stars of this movie truly became the Stooges even down to their voices. Every movement, mannerism, smack, punch, poke was the Stooges.
It took a Brady Bunch remake route with putting the Stooges in modern day, but it worked. The reason it worked was because the Stooges made you think you were watching a colorized version of the Stooges.
The story itself is ok, but the slapstick of the Stooges keeps your eyes at the screen, and Sofia Vergara doesn’t hurt either.
I’m pretty sure, Moe, Larry & Curly………and my Grandfather all would have enjoyed this movie.
A fun movie for the whole family, my kids laughed throughout the movie, and walked out Stooges fans.
Now to sit them down and give them history lessons in Black & White……………
NIAGRA FALLS…………SLOWLY I TURN……
