I don't know why they can't just leave stuff alone.

Blasphemy!
Some things you just don't do. Remaking The Three Stooges is first on the list.

I think it could be done well, but the Farrelly brothers aren't the ones to do it. They haven't made a decent comedy since Kingpin.

Unless some one figures out a way to resurrect Moe Howard, Curly Howard, and Larry Fine, there will never be a Three Stooges movie, show or sketch that holds a candle to the original.

Agreed. But I think something can be done with it that's respectful and original. This, on the other hand, just looks embarrassing.

Wow, guess I'm the only person who actually thinks it looks funny. I actually laughed at the trailer.

No you aren't. I enjoyed it too.

Look, they're never gonna top the original Stooges; it's impossible.

But for what it is, I think they're doing a pretty damn good job; and I'm glad they went with "lesser-knowns" for this project.

I've seen worse. But it doesn't look awesome either.
Maybe I'll check it out if it gets on to netflix streaming, and I'm really bored.

Fun mind-melter: try watching this trailer and picture seeing Sean Penn as Larry, Benicio del Toro as Moe, and Jim Carrey as Curly. Because that's the cast the Farrellys wanted at one point.

As for the trailer itself, I really have no opinion. I'll just leave it at that.

Yeah, I liked it too, and I still watch the stooges at least once a week...

Some of you guys need to chillax...

I guarantee this movie will be better than anything the boys did after Shemp died--and unfortunately they did a lot. :?

Bash the Curly Joe stuff all you want, but I'll defend Joe any day.
