Ridiclous and inane attempt at a "3-stooges" flick. You don't see folks trying to do Laurel & Hardy or Abbot & Costello flicks do you? So why Three Stooges? Well this an an example of why not!

I watched the Three Stooges when I was a child and now I watched it again and thought it was funny. I will watch this any day to the blood, gore, violence and profanity people are used to and actually love.

When the Sisters of Mercy orphanage faces bankruptcy due to their destructive antics, oldest residents Moe, Larry, and Curly decide to hit the road in an effort to raise the eight-hundred thousand dollars needed to keep it solvent. Of course being the Three Stooges they no sooner leave the driveway when everything that could possibly go wrong does just that—they become involved in a murder plot, wreak havoc in a hospital, and Moe ends up becoming a regular on Jersey Shore (oh sweet irony!) But with only days left before their beloved orphanage is forced to close its doors forever the still penniless Stooges are going to need a miracle or two…or nine or ten. For fans of the original blockheads this will prove to be a reunion of sorts for leads Sean Hayes (Larry), Will Sasso (Curly) and Chris Diamantopoulos (Moe) not only bear an uncanny resemblance to their namesakes but their zany choreographed slapstick is bang on, right down to the cartoon sound effects and beloved catchphrases (“I’m a victim of circumstance!”). Plus, there’s a few side-splitting sequences that would never have made it past the censors seventy years ago: an exploding fart joke left me choking while a piss fight in a nursery featuring Moe and Curly in full drag went beyond the pale. And casting Larry David as crusty old Sister Mary-Mengele was a stroke of comedic genius. Even a somewhat lame “Kids, Don’t Try This At Home” service announcement by directors Bobby and Peter Farrelly leaves you with a smile after you realize those hunky models are not the Farrelly brothers. The hip-hop closing credits are pretty cool too. A nice bit of inspired stupidity which pays a skewed homage to an era of comedy long since past.

I did enjoy the movie, although in my estimation, it wouldve worked better having the Stooges in a recreated set from the 1930's thus making it an even better homage. Still of what we did get, it's a wonderful romp through all things Stooge. I thought the three leads were wonderful and definately enacted the original trio and their routines quite nicely.

1st Fatal Mistake - Having The Three Stooges agree to kill someone. I don't care how this murder was justified, the original Three Stooges would never, ever agree to commit an act of homicide. Never! ~~~ 2nd Fatal Mistake - No pie fights. This movie desperately cried out for a few custard-cream pies to be thrown into some very deserving faces. But it never happened. ~~~ 3rd Fatal Mistake - Filming the story in color and having it set in modern times. It would have been so much more effective had the story been given a nostalgic, 1940s look to it. ~~~ 4th Fatal Mistake - There was no chemistry between the actors who played The Three Stooges, and Moe didn't command. The comic-timing between these 3 actors was just terrible! ~~~ 5th Fatal Mistake - Imitation may be one of the highest forms of flattery, but that wasn't the case here. These 3 actors were so bloody clueless, so conceited and so disrespectful when it came to imitating the original Stooges that they gave me the clear impression that they believed themselves to be actually improving on these classic comical characters of yesteryear. But, hey! No way, Jose!

"Society everywhere is in conspiracy against the manhood of every one of its members ... The base doctrine of the majority of voices usurps the place of the doctrine of the soul." Ralph Waldo Emerson // - Amanda Lang's The Power of Why; pp. 46, 47, 49: 'Someone . . . reviewed television commercials, prompted by research indicating that men didn’t think advertisers “got” them, and prepared a reel of representative ads for the group. “It wasn’t pretty,” Meerkamper says. “Men are portrayed as metrosexuals or as retrosexuals, the old-school tough guy who’s interested in beer and women and sports and that’s it. And the other type of guy was just a doofus, basically, who’s oblivious to how badly he’s performing. When you see these ads back to back, you’re like, ‘My goodness!’” Which naturally led to more questions: How do men feel about being portrayed as cavemen or doofuses? . . . . “We were messaging incorrectly in our ads,” Paivin says. “We were relying on the doofus portrayal, and it became abundantly clear that’s not how men want to be spoken to.”'
