It wasn't that horrible.

How come I didn't know this was written and directed by the Farrely brothers until 3 months after it left the theaters? Not that it would've made a lick of difference to me personally, but the ads made it seem like it just fell out of some random movie executive's ass, with absolutely no reason for existence, and nobody recognizable aside from that dude who was on MadTV ten years ago....if they had at least mentioned that there were some form of experienced, successful and (arguably) talented movie-folk attached it might not have been immediately dismissed by absolutely everybody. That was some poor marketing.

I'm still a little confused by the opinions of most the farkers here. The Three Stooges was a show based off of dumb, slapstick comedy. Yet, everyone hated the movie because it was a bunch of dumb, slapstick comedy.

Meh.

It insisted upon itself.
 
2012-07-26 11:20:25 PM
Right. Because it was actually not too bad, despite the pooh-poohing of spittle-flecked Farkian quibblers who didn't even watch the damn thing.

Well, for one, the original Stooges weren't cashing in by making a piss-poor re-enactment of a long-gone comedy troupe. The original Stooges usually worked in a short format (Their full movies weren't very good from the ones I've seen) and were actually somewhat original in their day. That and their ensemble worked quite well. They played off of each other marvelously. The Three Stooges were hardly highbrow, but they were lots of fun. A cash-in with impersonators? Not so much.

It wasn't a good movie, but it wasn't like sitting through a work meeting, or a wedding.

I laughed a few times, but then I am functionally retarded with a side of ranch.

Archimedes' Principal: The movie hit the theaters May 13th and is already on video July 17th ? Damn.

The days of "8 to 36 months before hitting video are lonooooong" behind us, mi amigo. I can't even remember the last film that played consecutively in first-run theaters for longer than 2 months. Maybe "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" from 10 years ago.

The ability to watch at home on the same day the film opens in theaters will become a reality before I die. And I'm not (that) young. I doubt theaters as a whole will die out before I do, though.


Have no opinion on the film's quality or those who highly rate same because I've no interest in viewing it.

I really liked the movie. It was a good homage to the original actors with well placed gags and random stupidity.

my 11 year old daughter and i LOVED it!

i, too, thought it was a very good tribute to the original masters of slapstick!

Have not yet seen it, might Redbox it soon. But the discussion reminds me of "John Carter: I took a pass on the theatrical showing, due to the horrible marketing and reviews. Then I redboxed it one afternoon, and I really wound up liking JC of Mars much more than I expected. Even my kids initially refused to glance at it, based just on word of mouth and the bad marketing for the film. When they caught sight of an interesting sequence, they went back and watched it all the way through, and also wound up liking it more than they ever expected.

Not a great movie, but mostly good casting. Sorry, but Will Sasso was a great Curly.

I liked the movie. Sure it was corny, what the hell do you expect. IMO it was better that 'Ted' now that movie was a major let down.
 
2012-07-27 01:59:54 AM
fark off nerds, not every movie should be men in tights crying over how awful their lives are, slapstick has a solid place in cinema.

Oh no, a family movie made it to number one.

That picture made me realize:
1)There does exists a bathing suit that isn't flattering to Kate Upton's body. That made her look kinda flabby around the hips.
2)She looks so much better with her hair down.

I liked it enough to see it twice. The acting was uneven, but the guy who played Curly was pretty convincing.

It had its moments and they certainly looked and played their parts perfectly. The scene where they get thrown over the wall and land on their heads in succession had me crying. Someone has to make an animated .gif out of that.

MrsOLG and I are big Stooges fan. Bought the books, got the complete set (even the Joe Besser shorts), can sit through both Curly and Shemp shorts, and we think the Farrelly brothers got it right.

The movie was a series of interconnected shorts done in the Stooges style. The "Fish out of water" bit was well played. Sofia Vergara was very funny, and Larry David almost stole the show. Plenty of shoutbacks to the originals.

And if people stayed around past the 10-minute mark, you would have seen a hilarious takeoff of "Jersey Shore" with much Snooki abuse.

tl:dr: yes, it was funny


/did I mention MrsOLG is a big fan?
//why do you think I married her?

For some movies, that day has already come. I believe I saw "Tucker and Dale vs. Evil" on HDNet's movie channel the same time that it was released to theaters. Maybe even a day before.

/A HUGELY underrated movie if you ask me.

T&DvsE was great. The "he dove headfirst into the woodchipper!" part had me rolling.

And The Three Stooges was actually pretty good. It was true to the originals, had some great gags, and was probably more enjoyable than some of the Stooges' own feature-length flicks. Larry David was surprisingly entertaining, and I didn't even know until AFTER the movie that Larry was so convincingly played by the guy who played Jack on Will & Grace. He was terrific.

If you liked T&DvsE, you should check out World's Greatest Dad, starring Robin Williams and directed by Bobcat Goldthwait. It's dark, but it's funny in a really uncomfortable way.

Me and my family really enjoyed it, thus invalidating all of your hater opinions.
