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.
Far from paying respectful homage to the memory of the original Stooges and potentially encouraging a new generation of viewers to revisit them, this lame comedy may leave them wondering what the fuss was all about in the first place.
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.
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.
Every 8 - 10 year old, and adults with 8 - 10 year old funny bones, will guffaw and giggle at the dim wits with big hearts whose originators are part of showbiz royalty. The iconic threesome are resurrected in look and sound-alikes
Not too heavy on the nyuks but a bit light on sustained yuks. As with the originals-devoid of character depth, social satire, or other subtext-there's not enough slap behind the schtick. Heartfelt humour-homage that ends up more like korny komic karaoke.
A subplot that lands Moe on 'Jersey Shore' will date faster than the Tojo references in 'The Yoke's on Me' (1944), and the use of Talking Heads and Allman Brothers music to score several bits of Stoogery is distracting and inexplicable.
