Wow… just, well, wow. Who would have thought that the collision of such comedic heavyweights—the Farrelly Brothers and the Three Stooges (well, people acting like the Three Stooges, anyway)—would be this, well, horrible? The trailer to The Three Stooges showcases all the old slapstick humor of the original troupe, but with none of the charm or zany wit; instead, we get lots of people being hit the groin, and the cast of Jersey Shore. Oh, good.
The film’s basic plot appears to be that the Stooges were abandoned to a convent of nuns (and featuring Larry David humiliating himself as a head nun), where they are eventually raised. Then the three actors pretending to be the Stooges (Sean Hayes, Will Sasso, and Chris Diamantopolous) run around and poke each other in the eyes, and stare at curvy women. Oh, the hilarity. Check it out:
So there you have it. One of the greatest comedy troupes of all time reduced to a modern update that plays like a straight to video Dumb and Dumber sequel. The Stooges are probably spinning in their graves (and doing it in way that’s ten times funnier than anything in this trailer).
