Hollywood is Making a New “Three Stooges” Movie…for Some Reason

Some times in life, you simply have to ask “why?”

This is one of those times.

It turns out that they’re making a remake/reboot of the “Three Stooges” that is due out next spring.

This gigantic flaming turd stars Will Sasso (Curly), Sean Hayes (Larry) and Chris Diamantopoulos (Moe) at the titular characters. It also, somehow, manages to feature a solid cast of B-list celebrities such as Jane Lynch, Jennifer Hudson, Sophia Vergara and Larry David.

It also inexplicably features a big ole bunch of the cast from “Jersey Shore.”

If that wasn’t enough to pull you in, here’s a quick look at the entirety of the plot as posted at IMDB:

“While trying to save their childhood orphanage, Moe, Larry, and Curly inadvertently stumble into a murder plot and wind up starring in a reality TV show.”

Wowza, that pretty much sounds like the stuff “Best Writing” Oscars are made of right there. No way this thing doesn’t take home half-a-dozen Academy Awards, right?!

It shouldn’t come as much of a shock that this film is being made by the Farrelly brothers who—if memory serves—haven’t made a legitimately good movie since “There’s Something About Mary” way back in 1998.

Enough of my bitching, go ahead and peep the official trailer so you can get a good idea of what to expect.

Heck, I’ll even watch it with y’all for a second time to make sure I’m not overreacting.



I know, right?!

Holy crapsticks, it was even worse the second time through!

With the lone exception of Kate Upton as a bikini-clad nun that looks every single kind of awful.

Shitty looking trailer aside, there’s a chance that I’m a tad biased.

The original Stooges were ancient history when I was growing up and I never really dug ‘em. It was three dudes smacking each other in the face and making funny noises.

It was like a tame, black and white version of “Jackass.”

Given that the Stooges original heyday was in the 1930s, I’ve got to assume the bulk of the movie-going audience will feel the same way.

Anyone out there disagree and think this looks like a winner?

  1. Can’t disagree at all, this looks total crap I cannot believe people are actually going to make and watch this!

    • I know, right?!

      It scares me to know that there are people in the world who will see this trailer and still think “man, this could be funny…let’s go spend $10 to see it!”

      …scary stuff.

  2. All I can say is… wtf? movies don’t seem very awesome anymore.

    • Agreed. This makes my brain bleed with sadness for Hollywood. I think I actually pay to see maybe two or three movies a year anymore.
