The Three Stooges

Just Say Moe.


The Three Stooges
The Farrelly brothers have tried to bring their take on their childhood favourites, The Three Stooges, to the screen for a long time and finally managed to pull it off. The film pays homage to the original stars, in an all-new story. We first meet the trio as children, when they arrive at an orphanage. Years later, now adults, they still remain unadopted (surprisingly!?). When the orphanage faces a cash crisis, they decide to help, and get hired by a woman to knock off her husband. Naturally things don't go quite according to plan...

What the Critics say

Die Burger
Paul Boekkooi quote iconNuwe baadjie vir 'Three Stooges'.
10
Cape Times
Todd McCarthy quote iconIt's a tribute how quickly one accepts the actors as the characters.
15
Box Office
Pete Hammond quote iconIt may sound sacrilegious, but Peter and Bobby Farrelly have done right by comedy icons The Three Stooges with a film—contemporary in tone, but retro in spirit—that actually feels like something the original Stooges might have made themselves, if they were alive and in their prime circa 2012.
10
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconI must say one more: I didn't laugh much. I don't think the Stooges are funny, although perhaps I might once have. Some of the sight gags were clever, but meh.
13
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconFor the Farrellys, The Three Stooges is a labor of love. For non-believers, it's merely a labor.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconTrust me, you'd rather be poked in the eyes, slapped or pounded on the head repeatedly rather than sit through this travesty

Tomatometer quote iconWhile nowhere near as painful as it could have been, The Three Stooges fails to add fresh laughs to the Stooges' inestimable cinematic legacy.
