Three Stooges Movie Review
Okay, I have never done a movie review (or any review for that matter) on my blog. I don't think it is going to become a permanent part , but I just can't help but share about this movie. Tonight my family watched the newly released Three Stooges movie starring Sean Hayes (Larry), Will Sasso (Curly) and Chris Diamantopoulos (Moe).
I love Sean Hayes (Jack) from Will & Grace. He was great in this movie. Such a different role for him. Loved seeing him again! Will Sasso is just an around funny guy. Has been in many great movies such as Best in Show and The Hot Chick. Chris Diamantopoulos as Moe was a fresh face to me. Originally from Canada moved to U.S and starting working on Broadway.
I felt the movie had a good plot. It had a good story behind it. Larry, Curly and Moe were left at an orphanage doorstep and raised by nuns. All three grew up together finger-poking, nyuk-nyuking and woo-woo-wooing their way into trouble and knuckle headed adventures.
Here is where I wish the story was a little different. Due to all their misadventures and "accidents" the orphanage has become broke and become broke unless they come up with the money. (that part totally okay with) Out to save their childhood home, The Three Stooges become embroiled in an oddball murder plot. (really? it was a good family show until that part) My 8 year old daughter watched the movie with us. She loved the silly, stupid humor, but I really wish this part would have been left out and/or changed to not include anything to do with guns or murder. It was not a violent or major part of the movie and it was even made humorous, but I did wish the writers could have figured out a different way to go.
My lasting thought are this:
Excellent cast, okay on the writing. You have to love this kind of humor that the Farrelly Brothers bring. I have always loved slapstick, stupid humor. A good movie and even though it had that one part I still think it is a good family movie. The language was awesome. There was not any violence. Movies without language, sex and violence are so hard to find.
Check out more of the GREAT cast:
