The Schmoes meet “The Three Stooges”, or at least the latest homage to the classic comedy trio. Would this be anything more than a pointless exercise in mimicry? Or could the Farrelly Brothers actually make a Stooges flick that made us laugh??
The Schmoes pride themselves on two things above all else (no, proper hygiene is not one of them): they have a passion for movies and a love for entertaining audiences. So what better combo for the boys than getting to see “The Three Stooges”? Well, hang on…this is a new cast, a different time, an entire reboot of the classic comedy trio. As far back as a few years ago (when rumors abounded of Benecio Del Toro, Sean Penn and Jim Carrey stepping into the Stooge roles), a new “Three Stooges” movie seemed like a tough idea to pull off. And Mark and Krisitian were less than enthusiastic after seeing the trailers and tv ads in the last couple months…but being the open-minded cinefiles they are, they showed up to a screening hoping for the best.
Directed by the Farrelly Brothers, this version of “The Three Stooges” finds Sean Hayes, Chris Diamantopoulos and Will Sasso as Larry, Moe and Curly, respectively. The gang finds themselves in an orphanage as adults (obviously no one would want to adopt three stooges…much less guys impersonating them), and when the only home they’ve ever known is faced with eviction, the stooges set out into the world to make things right.
Should you reboot a franchise as legendary as the stooges? While that ethical debate may never reach a fitting conclusion, it did happen, and it’s in theaters now. Regardless if you’ve never seen any version of the stooges or swear by the original three, everyone wants to know how it turned out: the Schmoes Know guys offer their take right now.
