“The Three Stooges” Movie Review

(Great fun if you love slapstick)

Moe, Larry, and Curly (Curley?).  How I was looking forward to this movie, and guess what, yuk, yuk….it was GREAT!

Dropped off at an orphanage when they were babies, Moe (Chris Diamantopoulos), Larry (Sean Hayes), and Curly (the perfect Curly, Will Sasso) grow to be real pains in the asses to the sisters at the orphanage.  So much so, that their insurance is cancelled and the orphanage must close unless $800,000 or so is raised to pay the bills.

25 years (and much hilarity) after they arrived (where no one ages except them…) Moe, Larry, and Curly set out to make the $800,000 to save the orphanage.

Out in the real world for the first time Moe, Larry, and Curly hook up with our favorite Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara (playing Lydia) who wants her husband killed.  She will pay the Stooges $800,000 to do it. They reluctantly agree.

If you loved the original Three Stooges, you will love this movie.  If you don’t like pure, stupid, in your face, slapstick comedy…you might not like it.  I loved it, Lori did not (her loss!).  Yuk, yuk…..

OK for kids of all ages….no f-words, no cussing.  Lots of funny moments, and a plot.  An excellent movie for lovers of good old fashioned slapstick comedy.

Go see it!

For those who have never seen the great ones in action:

Go to IMDb for more information.  We watched this at the Tracy, CA CineMark where our poster is STILL UP!  🙂

  1. I grew up with the Stooges and have seen every one of their films and shorts. The characterizations by Sean Hayes, Chris Diamantopoulos, and Will Sasso were dynamic. I laughed the entire time and can only hope that this will begin a series of Stooges films. For those who do not like slap-stick, stay home, because you will not appreciate this genre of film.
