Just because it says genius on her hat doesn’t mean she is one
This will be quick and painless I promise, so the story; Left on the doorstep of an orphanage run by nuns, newborns Moe (Chris Diamantopoulos), Larry (Sean Hayes) and Curly (Will Sasso) grow up finger-poking, nyuk-nyuk-nyuking and woo-woo-wooing their way to uncharted levels of knuckleheaded misadventure. Now their childhood home may have to close due to financial difficulties. But Larry, Curly and Moe, employed as the foster home’s inept maintenance men, are determined to come to the rescue. Only The Three Stooges could become embroiled in an oddball murder plot – while stumbling into starring roles in a phenomenally successful TV reality show.
I will begin this review with the confession that I never liked the Three Stooges. Why did I go to this movie? I thought perhaps if more likable actors were chosen to represent the T.S., it would all be better. They were. It wasn’t. Not only was the movie boring, un-entertaining, dull, but the last few minutes are comprised of the folks who produced this mess contributing their share of the dumbing down of society. They exhibited the rubber props and cautioned anyone with a head so empty of intelligence as to even want to try any of the idiotic stunts from the movie, that it is all pretend, not real, and not to be tried at home. Even showed us ignorant folk that the famous eye pokes are not real. No-one’s eyes are actually poked, but made more real by sound effects. Well…I’m sure any kids or grownups interested in trying to recreate any of this stupidity are now more than sufficiently forewarned and the movie makers have properly covered their behinds. Now nobody from our litigious society can come after them – just in case. To sum it up, I would have to say….Don’t Go….Stay Home….See Another Movie…Don’t Waste Your Time…It’s Not Worth Watching….
