The Three Stooges get slapped around in their first trailer

12.07.2011

It seemed like the Farrelly brothers attempt to revive the Three Stooges might have been dead in the water, but after a host of cast changes they finally settled on their Larry, Moe and Curly. That would be Sean Hayes, Chris Diamantopoulos and Will Sasso respectively and you can see their antics in this debut trailer.

They're going full slapstick in true Stooges tradition, and I have to say, the three actor's impressions of their respective characters are pretty accurate. Whether that translates into a worthwhile film is another matter, and I don't know how a movie that's 100% slapstick will play with today's audiences. Things were going pretty well until a certain....person showed up at the end, sigh.

Check out the new trailer below for yourself, and let me know what you think.

It looks like a fun time, but never before have I wished so bad that a trailer scene end up cut from the final product than when Snooki popped up. Maybe she'll overdose in the meantime and they'll cut her role out of "respect."

I'm not a fan of Jersey Shore, so Snooki showing up didn't affect me. (Too, we don't know how long she will actually be in the movie).

Still, as a longtime Three Stooges fan (and Marx Brothers fan, and Laurel & Hardy fan, among others) from what I saw of the trailer it has the potential to be funny...as crazy as Tommy Boy was.

Now, if the directors are actually able to put a story in there (and yes, it's possible for comedies to have a good story)...color me impressed.

The gags in the trailer were funny & classic 3 Stooges, but I'd rather the classic 3 Stooges to remain right where they are.

I thought this was suppossed to be a serious biopic about them, but yikes speaking of cliches just like they did with The Brady Bunch, The Beverly Hillbillies & every other movie based on an older TV show, they stick them into todays society. I just love how unoriginal hollywood has become.

Good God I need to pay closer attention. I thought the Stooges movie mentioned long ago was going to be a biopic behind the scenes film about the real Stooges. This rehashed crap could be the worst idea EVER. Anyone that pays to see this crap/insult should instantly lose their citizenship right at the ticket window.

If not going with the biopic route they should at least have gone Black&White and kept it as a period piece.

In the spirit of trying to stay optimistic, great casting with curly and larry but moe.. my my... not cool my friend, not cool at all

So hollywood went the time machine route instead of the dramatic biopic. Surprise, surprise.

If you "laughed your ass off" during this trailer then you are not a funny person. Plain and simple. If your eyes bled, then the opposite is true.

If I want to see slapstick, I'll watch the original Stooges and not people pretending to be them.

The only way a Stooges movie would interest me would be if it was a drama dealing with their lives in the spotlight.

Sorry for the double post. But now that it's here...

Let me take advantage of this situation.
Oh I'm not done!
Plus I never saw a cast more irrelevant than these actors. They haven't been on tv in years. Let alone film. Is it worse that I can't think of ONE movie any of them was in? Their "careers" respectively, haven't been relevant in a long time so how does that give them the merit or qualifications to take on something as classic and timeless as The Three Stooges? I don't get it.

Not if I respected myself and my career. One role like this can spell doom and disaster for an actor in Hollywood. So if I wanted any chance of being in actually good FILMS and not be type cast as a comedy actor then no I would NEVER take a gig like this.

call me crazy...

other than the horrible cliche's, (Jersey Shore bein in it, the hot nun that shows off her body, the stooges as babies, the cheap laughs- IPhone, the singing and dancing, the fish, etc. etc)

This film doesn't look that bad, I did chuckle to myself at Larry's sign "Will Wirk for $830,000"

by the way, people the Farrelly brothers haven't made a good comedy since the late 90's, what did you expect their stooge movie to look like?

Looks Exactly Like a Three Stooges Movie Should....

This movie looks perfectly like a Three Stooges movie should look, with all the slapstick and sound effects intact.

The question is; should anyone have made a Three Stooges movie? The answer is; No, don't be a fucking idiot.

I can't believe this is from the same guys that brought me one of my top favorite, beloved, comedies of all time (There's Something About Mary). If they went from Penn, Carrey, and Del Toro to this cast including the fckin' Jersey Shore, I'm starting to think that Penn, Carrey and Del Toro were just rumored all along to give this movie very, desperately needed attention... I'm disgusted that they went to this new low.

*vomit and shit*

I've been watching the boys since I was maybe only 3 or 4 years old and consider the original Howard, Howard and Fine to be geniuses of comedy.
This trailer is EXACTLY how I pictured it would be and it makes me sick to my stomach. Terrible impersonations (other than Sasso who is making me weep now cause he's so much better than this shit), horrible references and they're trying to even sex it up. Why are we being punished?
I need to watch "Disorder In The Court" now to dry my tears.

But yes, Snookie left a sour taste in my mouth.

What do you mean it is hip to dismiss this? I dismiss it because it is retarded and the film makers think their viewers are retarded and will pay to see it, and many will. I'm not retarded and I didn't laugh once. All I had was a grimace on my face because it was attacking my intellect. It is schlock and if that is hip then I guess I'm hip. Schlock bullshit film-making.
