Partly Filmed in Sandy Springs, 'The Three Stooges' is No Laughing Matter

Movie Reviewer: The Three Stooges get a new look with some fresh new faces, and no one is laughing.

 

From the who brought you "There's Something About Mary" and "Dumb & Dumber" comes the much anticipated movie about three morons in "The Three Stooges."

It's Larry, Moe, and Curly 2.0. This time around Larry is played by Sean Hayes, Moe is Chris Diamantopoulos, and Curly is Will Sasso.

Filmmakers spent two days shooting . 

The film is three episodes drawn into one 90-minute movie. The Stooges do what they can to try to save the orphanage they grew up in. This movie has been talked about for more than 10 years now and, sad to say, it's pretty anticlimactic.

I was never a real big fan of the original Stooges, and it's pretty safe to say that these three were doing impressions rather than a performance. The eye-poking and slapping is so repetitive it's almost sad. This film does not honor their legacy nor does it justify bringing them into the present day. I'm talking to you, Farrelly Brothers.

The flick-o-meter gives The Three Stooges an unlaughable 2 out of five.

Sure they look like Larry, Moe, and Curly but…if you love Three Stooges, stick with the originals. That being said, get social. Head to my Facebook page, it's called TheBrettside, and click Like.

Anyone that admits " I was never a fan of the original three stooges" has no business reviewing this movie. I love the those guys and millions do " we can't help it, we're morons."

If you were never a fan in the first place you have no frame of reference for the review. Maha. Aha. Curly: Hittin' a guy with glasses,huh? That said (and only understood by Stooges aficionados), trying to make a film that captures the originals is a challenge that his hard to hit. The film was okay but not wonderful. The cast was interesting and amusing. The disclaimer at the end was the best part. But Moe's daughter Joan Maurer liked it and that is a good thing.
