My wife doesn't understand.

My 14 year old son understands all too well. We'll be in line tomorrow for tickets.

I don't know why a stooges remake is necessary. The original stooges footage isn't less funny than it used to be. It's still there as classic as it ever was. You'll never be able to recapture it.

You can't manufacture a trio with that kind of chemistry with a casting crew.

I'm sure the movie will have a some good jokes and will remind me of the good old stuff but from what I've seen it'll just make me want to watch some real stooges short films.

Pardon my curmudgeonliness.

I always felt that way, until I saw the trailers. They certainly seem to have nailed it.

But it wouldn't be the first time a trailer has lied.

We'll see tomorrow.

I'm strangely intrigued by this as well. I can see it being funny in the same way the Ace Venture movies were funny.

I expect a full report.

That's good enough reason to me why it's necessary. There's an entire generation who probably doesn't know of The Stooges.

There'll always be the originals. Refreshed takes can only cast attention to the originals. I look forward to see what Sean Hayes, Will Sasso and the new Moe can bring to the table.

I never thought sasso and Jack McFarlane were very funny. I am scared to see it. Please tell me Moe is not french Stewart.... That would seal the deal for me not to see it. I probably will tho when it comes to the dollar theatre. My son wants to see it, he loves the old ones.

They seem to do a pretty good impression, but I see a lot of rehashed gags. I guess for the generation that hasn't seen them, they'll be new.

Review in the paper this morning...

It's just not enough to say that "The Three Stooges," the latest from the Farrelly Brothers, is the death of comedy.

Rather, it's the death, burial, putrefaction and decomposition of comedy.


I may be wrong, but I don't think he liked it...

Well, it was pretty stupid....

Stupid AWESOME!

(OK, not awesome, but it was pretty funny). My son and I got plenty of laughs out of it. Now I want to go back and watch some genuine stooges.

If you like old fashioned slapstick, then it's a decent hour and a half.

/ok, switching the brain back on.
