Y’know, it’s not so much that I’m amazed that the Farrelly’s and a succession of studios and producers somehow decided it was a good idea to make NOT a movie “about” the actual Three Stooges but instead a modern-day comedy with new actors (Sean Hayes, Will Sasso and Chris Diamantopolous) playing new incarnations of Moe, Larry and Curly. That’s all perfectly believable Hollywood behavior at this point.
No, what’s amazing is that this isn’t a “new” project… the Farrelly’s have been trying to make this movie – which NOBODY thinks is a good idea and ever FEWER people want to see – for over a decade now. I mean… Wow.
The film itself is due to be dumped in theaters April 4th. Below the jump, my favorite bit from the ACTUAL Stooges, “A Plumbing We Will Go” (1940)…
