The Stooges

I don’t know what your child watches first thing in the morning, but I grew up watching The Three Stooges.  Every morning.  Before school.

That may explain something.

Anyway, the Farrelly brothers (of Dumb and Dumber and There’s Something About Mary fame) are making a Three Stooges movie.  Not a biopic, but an actual Three Stooges movie.

Since Moe, Larry and Curly have been long unavailable, two actors I’m not familiar with and Sean Hayes of Will and Grace (as Larry) are filling in.

As a lifelong aficionado of The Stooges, I have a message for the Farrellys:  do not screw this up.  And the guy who plays Curly (Will Sasso) better be good.

Will this be an homage to the boys?  I don’t know. 

Christine McIntyre

The Farrellys have cast Sofia Vergara, but memories of the underrated and unsung Christine McIntyre linger from many of the old shorts.

And Larry David’s in the movie, too.  As a nun.

OK, that’s a start.

    They’ll screw it up. Don’t go see it. It”ll poison your memories.

    That’ll be a tough act to reproduce, some things are better left unspoiled. I don’t have a good feeling about this, but one has to hope, we still have our reruns.

  4. I have a picture of the trio on our kitchen wall. That classic pic of them in golf duds. I agree with li’l em. I think this is a bad idea. Like hiring seven guys to play the guys in Monty Python. Or casting Christian Bale as Abbot and Mark Wahlberg as Costello. It would be interesting, but it wouldn’t , couldn’t come close to the originals, who are allstill around on YouTube and other sites. What’s the point, Farrelly Bros?

    On 2nd

    thought.

    Bale and Marky might not be bad. ” Who’s on first card? “

    Same classic golf pic in my office. Unfortunately, I think this movie is going to ” Turn those Boidies into Bogies”
