Three Stooges motion poster is about as annoying as you'd expect

Feb. 28, 2012by:

Ah, the movie that no one asked for, THE THREE STOOGES. I suppose it's a possibility that this could be somewhat entertaining, but I will be floored if this is anything less than a lackluster effort.

As a kid, I watched THE THREE STOOGES on TV and really enjoyed it. It's hard to hate Larry, Curly, and Moe, but something about a modern version of these characters just feels wrong to me.

Anyway, click the image below to view the motion poster on their Facebook page. Yes, THE THREE STOOGES have a Facebook page...

The whole concept would work better if it took place in the same time period as the original series. It could also benefit from a director that could lend some visual punch to the film. Yeah, it's "just" THE THREE STOOGES, but why not put some effort into it?

The Farrelly Brothers are good at gross out humor, but leave something to be desired by way of slapstick. In truth, they've made some of my favorite comedies (THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY, DUMB AND DUMBER), but they aren't exactly visionaries.

Maybe this will surprise us, but I doubt it.

THE THREE STOOGES starts smacking, gouging, and poking on April 13, 2012.

On the other hand...there IS Kate Upton...

Extra Tidbit: Would you rather see The Three Stooges set in modern day, original series timeframe, or simply not exist at all?

I know i'm in the minority

but i'm actually not opposed to this. I'd rather the Stooges continued in new stories, than were left to be forgotten. Maybe this will help lead the new generation to appreciate what the rest of us already know and love about the original Stooges. I'm not ready to toss this effort under the bus just yet. Hopefully it was done well. I'll judge it after I see it.

I know we are all resistant to remakes, and reboots, but if not for remakes and reboots, we would have never had Superman The

I know we are all resistant to remakes, and reboots, but if not for remakes and reboots, we would have never had Superman The Movie, Batman 1990, Batman Begins, Casino Royale, Zack Snyder's Dawn Of The Dead, not to mention the limitless thousands of books that have been made into films. Original ideas - no, but I'd rather have The Godfather or LOTR on dvd, than not at all.

They should've whipped up a motion poster of Kate Upton instead.

From what I've seen Sean Hayes is pretty spot on as Larry. But it's hard to get excited based on the trailer.

No more remakes, no more reboots, leave original shit alone Hollywood. Leave it alone, leave it alone, LEAVE IT ALONE! The original 3 stooges were brilliant, in the pics and trailer I've seen of this remake they look like they ride the small bus and missed their meds. An insult to the original in every way. Embarrassing. Again, what would be so bad about giving the top Stooges shorts a polish and putting them in theaters at a cheaper price. Wouldn't cost half as much as this bomb will and you

Wouldn't cost half as much as this bomb will and you reintroduce instead of trying to re create something that cannot be. Think for once Hollywood, it won't kill you.
