When the movie works, it can derive some raucous laughter...

It's innocent and silly and brainless and funny. This is not a dumb comedy done smartly; this is a dumb comedy done dumbly.

Stooges will resonate strongly or not at all, depending on the viewer. But a Jersey Shore experience is about where the film falls short of honorable intentions.

It's absurd, it's mindless, it's infantine but it's also bizarrely charming.

The architects behind There's Something About Mary and Kingpin make merry with the poking and thumping, but are ultimately far too fond of their comic heroes to make them or us truly squirm.

Slapstick, slapstick and even more slapstick. Think of it as a Junior Jackass.

This could have been a truly awful summation of the work of such minor legends but it works surprisingly well.

They're just as hopelessly violent, bad-tempered and stupid at the end as they were at the beginning. These days, that's refreshingly anarchic.

It shows that what made the Stooges work all those years ago, though hardly in vogue, still works today.

Quaint but exuberantly crafted.

Chase scenes and physical comedy exchanges allow the action to romp along at a fair lick.

The Three Stooges is far more enjoyable than it perhaps ought to be.

If you don't like it, you can go 'nyuck' yourself.

Surprisingly, sensibly restrained and rather touching. In relative terms, of course.

An extremely faithful reboot that delivers some huge laughs, thanks to a witty script, pacy direction, some inspired comic set-pieces and a trio of terrific performances from Sean Hayes, Chris Diamantopoulos and Will Sasso.

'The Three Stooges' is exactly the film it wants to be. Was it worth ten years of anyone's life? Probably not. Is it worth 88 minutes of yours? Absolutely.

Perfectly-pitched performances by the three new Stooges...and a sweetly sentimental line in brotherly love ensures that a paper-thin plot is of no consequence at all when it comes to the laugh-to-running-time ratio.

Three Stooges is a very stupid film. Then again, if you bought a ticket expecting anything different, then really, the only idiot is you.

The physical comedy set pieces are performed with an impressive level of planning, timing and choreography

Anyone who has ever enjoyed so much as a guilty giggle from watching the cartoonish antics of The Three Stooges as they eye-poke, head-slap and gut-punch each other will get a major kick from this loving reboot...Good, clean, stupid fun.
