Nyuk, Nyuk, Nyuk - Three Stooges Cast

By March 29, 2009

Follow me on:

I have to admit, there's one great icon of classic film that I. Just. Don't. Get.

The Three Stooges.

It's not that I can't appreciate physical comedy. Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd, Charlie Chaplin, each a genius of the genre. (Steve Martin, too, especially in All of Me.) But somehow, I've just never connected with Stooges humor.

So I'll leave it to Stooge fans to explain the uproar over the somewhat odd, but very big-name casting of Benicio del Toro, Jim Carrey and Sean Penn in the Farrelly brothers' revival of The Three Stooges.

Somehow, this one feels like there would be no in-between. It's either going to soar with loopy Farrelly goodness or crash in a three-star supernova. Whaddya think?

(At least the Farrellys will continue work on Walter the Farting Dog, starring the teen heartthrob Jonas Brothers. Nothing can go wrong there...)

I am really curios to see this film. I have been a big Three Stooges Fan for many years. I have a large collection of original movie posters and lobby cards on the Stooges spanning from the early 1930′s through the 1950′s. I hope this movie is good. The Stooges deserve a great tribute film.
