Excerpt: There's an inner 9-year-old in us all, dying to get out, to laugh at pratfalls, slaps, eye-pokes, and fart jokes. "No wonder (adoptive) parents didn't want youse," Sister Mary-Mengele hisses. But Mother Superior (Jane Lynch) and Sister Rosemary (Jennifer Hudson) tolerate them. For decades.
Excerpt: A misbegotten attempt to revive the anarchic slapstick antics of the trio who scandalized generations of parents and update it for 21st-century audiences. Bottom line: However vulgar, corny and juvenile the real Stooges could be, they were funny.
Excerpt: Veteran comedy filmmakers Peter and Bobby Farrelly ( Dumb & Dumber , There’s Something About Mary ) have been talking about making a movie based on The Three Stooges for more than a decade, but as long-in-the-works dream projects go, it’s pretty anticlimactic.
Excerpt: "The Three Stooges" is one of those recycled ideas you really want to like, yet falls way short of the mark. The film has enlisted a fantastic cast, but as hard as it might try, fitting Moe, Larry and Curly into our modern world just doesn't feel right and simply isn't that funny.
