The Farrelly Brothers’ passion project, Three Stooges (once set to star Sean Penn, Jim Carrey, and Benicio Del Toro, if you can believe that) finally has a trailer, and I’ll be honest, I didn’t know whether to stoke the fires of righteous disbelief with a screencap of Snooki, or stoke your boners with a picture of Kate Upton in a bikini. Decisions, decisions. In the end I tried to have it both ways, which I realize now is probably really confusing.
Left on a nun’s doorstep, Larry, Curly and Moe (Sean Hayes, Will Sasso, Chris Diamantopoulos), grow up finger-poking, nyuk-nyuking and woo-woo-wooing their way to uncharted levels of knuckleheaded misadventure. Out to save their childhood home, only The Three Stooges could become embroiled in an oddball murder plot…while also stumbling into starring in a phenomenally successful TV reality show. [Apple]
I guess the big question is, will it be an abortion, a disaster, a travesty, or just a mild blaspheming? Let’s find out!
I dunno, call me crazy, but I’m not completely disgusted. A whole movie of guys doing Three Stooges impressions is such an awful idea to begin with that actually seeing the execution is more just sort of a shrug. Shrugsville, USA, population me. I mean, the cameos are awful (really, guys? Mo with a Jersey Shore tan? that’s worse than something Seltzer/Friedberg would’ve come up with), but the slapstick isn’t the worst thing in the world. Eh. Meh. Feh. (*fartnoise*) There’s really no reason to waste more words on it than this. Especially since I think this cat sums up my feelings quite adequately:
Me too, Chill Cat. Me too.
