Why R? The original Stooges were funny without cursing or nudity. Of course there is the violence of slapping and getting hit by objects, but nothing blowing up and no one dying.

Bunch of wanna be critics have already doomed this film. I'm not saying its gonna be Gone with the Wind, but I will wait to give my opinion until I have a basis that has value, not speculation.

Well, considering I've never seen a quality PG movie in my life - I stand by my prediciton.

Little kid humor doesn't do it for me..I already saw a joke about 'boogers' in the preview...Pass

So, it made me hate the entire movie even though I'm a huge fan of the series. I'm gonna give it a shot but I don't think I will be able to enjoy it because it will be celebrity impersonators and not the real stooges.

Well duh. Jeez. What do people want? The Stooges are icons and could never be replaced. It would be sad if a movie wasnt done. These men are classics and a movie is a tribute to that.

Let’s hope that Hollywood pays tribute, do justice to the stooges in this movie, and makes the original stooges proud.

I took my kids (14 and 16) to this flick. I wasn't expecting grrrreatness. I wasn't looking forward to laughing our fools off. I wasn't expecting jack-diddly. We went just for the hell of it. 
Review in a few sentences.
A few laughs and that's about it. Pretty mediocre. I'll never watch it again. 
2 out of 5 stars.

Sugar right on the money, couldnt have said it better and Im a huge stooges fan. I actually think that this could have been a good movie if they didnt try JUST to imitate the stooges. They should have implemented really racey crazy stuff that the original stooges werent doing like sexual humor and such. This movie was really bad! Take any 3 original stooges skits and they are way funnier then this movie. It really goes to show you how BRILLIANT their stuff was. As much as I love curly my fav is Malice in the Palace with shemp. I can watch that over and over and still laugh my behind off.

Horrible review and idea. Dont pay attention to this at all. Imitation is the greatest form of flattery.

Solid laughs throughout and they stuck with the Stooges good clean fun. Classic? No. Great tribute? Yes.

I can picture my father who passed away ten years ago now laughing his behind off at that show.  Particularly one episode where they were in some castle and and a bird was stuck in some medieval knights armor.  Man, what a friggin riot that episode was.

Nobody should appreciate nor respect this sort of horseshit.

Anyone who show up to the theater to buy tickets should be put in boxcars and taken to the ocean to be drowned.

   I really wanted to like this movie. Deep down, I figured it would be absolute garbage but, me and my kids were either going to see, Cabin in the Woods, or The Three Stooges. I knew the Cabin flick would be much more interesting and fun to see, but, I grew up watching the Stooges on weekends, late night, and on every New Year's Eve marathon. Basically, I dragged my kids to see The Three Stooges. They rolled their eyes when I mentioned it. 
    From beginning to end, I was almost forcing myself to somewhat laugh at some of the scenes; only because I had put myself into an awkward position of playing up the Stooges to the kids and hoping the movie would deliver. There was barely a  funny moment worth mentioning in the entire movie. Although, the pissing baby fight was the best scene in the entire movie. And that's not saying much.  It's like working on a construction site for weeks without seeing a woman when an average-at-best looking woman shows up. The workers check her out, knowing full well she's nothing worth staring at, let alone bangable. Nevertheless, what's one of the first things you hear from someone's mouth after she's out of hearing distance?   "I'd hit that." "Man, she's kinda hot." "Hmm, maybe I'll go punch one out right now." In essence, one decent funny scene involving baby piss doesn't a good movie make. 
   TRAIN, this wasn't a tribute to the Three Stooges just because it was a movie about them. I've seen movies about Godzilla, does that mean the makers of the movie made a tribute to Godzilla? How about Monster, the Aileen Wuornos story.  Was that a tribute to the now famous woman serial-killer? A tribute is an act, statement, or gift that's intended to show gratitude, respect, or admiration. While the Farrelly Brothers may say this is a tribute to what The Three Stooges have given us as entertainment, their actions say something very different. The magic of the Stooges comes from who plays them, not the characters. Only Moe can be Moe, godammit! Only Curly can be Curly... obviously. The Farrelly brothers experiment with replicating what is one of the most difficult acts to replicate in Hollywood history. What they couldn't capture, they copied. That's not only utter bullshit, it's a recipe for a garbage sandwich. What came from the original Stooges came from within the Three Stooges. It was them we fell in love with and laughed with, not some actors being directed by some guys who've always wanted to make a movie involving them. 
    How much CGI was in this movie? Too much. Why not try and keep with the spirit of the original and come up with other, less computer-driven ways to spice up the special effects? That chainsaw to the head scene almost had me thinking he was going to embed it into his brain. I wasn't ready for a realistic, computer generated attack on Curly's head... it has always been the fake, soft saw run across Curly's head with a quick cut to the now mangled saw. That was the brilliance of it. We knew it was fake, there was no hiding it... it was absurd. CGI in The Three Stooges was a bad idea.
    The Farrelly brothers would have done better by plucking the actual characters from the original film reels and super-imposing them onto present-day digital backgrounds. Placing the characters into present-day situations, and giving a half-hearted attempt at mimicking original script ideas is not a good mixture for a successful tribute. Perhaps a time machine would have sufficed in aiding in my suspension of disbelief. For no matter how crazy and unbelievable The Three Stooges were, I didn't care how outlandish they were. In their most recent incarnation,  they try too hard to copycat the originals. Unfortunately for me,  that's all I can see. 
    The Farrelly brothers' Three Stooges is not fun, funny, or enjoyable. Maybe someday I'll watch it with the director's commentary on, and they'll tell us why one of the brothers has such big boobs. 
   This movie lost any shred of credibility when Snooki and the rest of her Jersey Shore pals make cameo appearances. I almost took my kids and walked out right then. I haven't been so disappointed by a movie since Deep Blue Sea, I snuck in to that and still ended up leaving before it ended.

you do realize the jersey shore people were on there because they were being made fun of and how many people in the country wish they could do what Moe was doing to them, making them look stupid.

Not sure what movie you watched, but obviously you expected too much. Too much CGI? WTF are you talking about? It was in like 2 scenes. The Jersey Shore scenes were obviously making fun of them. You didnt laugh when one of the Jersey Shore guys say "hety, thats assault"....and Moe responded " Heres your pepper!!" and slapped him?

What about the nicknames Moe called everyone? Skin tags, bulldog....What about the fight scene when they triple team that guy. Funny garbage.

Were you also upset it wasnt in black and white?

The addition of those Jersey Shore fools just made the movie even worse. Snooki and the Situation have no problem making themselves look stupid, they do a dandy job at that themselves; it's what they get paid to do. Their cameo just help perpetuate their celebrity. And Moe Howard becoming part of what could be the most horrendous form of television; reality tv, just made the cringe factor move up to eleven.

I clearly stated earlier on in this thread that I was expecting jack-diddly. I wasn't expecting greatness. I expected nothing. How can you say I don't have a sense of humor without knowing me? Humor is extremely subjective. It's only my opinion. Isn't this what this place is for? Just because I feel The Three Stooges movie was bad, means I don't have a sense of humor? I gave it a chance. I didn't like it. Perhaps we have different tastes when it comes to comedies. 
And the cgi in the movie wasn't needed. I'd bet there were more than two instances of it being used. It definitely didn't help the movie...
With much respect, TRAIN, I must agree to disagree with you.
