So they're finally making the Three Stooges movie and the cast is just the craziest thing ever - Jim Carrey as Curly, Sean Penn as Larry and Benicio Del Toro as Moe. My mind is officially blown, but there's more.

And it isn't a biopic - it's a zany comedy, like something the Stooges themselves would have made.

I am making none of this up.

I wanna see a modern-day Marx Brothers movie where the 3 comedic leads start a giant musical number in the middle of the movie.

Isn't Jim Carrey a little small for this role? Shouldn't they be looking for more of a Seth Rogen type?

I read about this on a movie site and this sentence was included in the writeup:
"Word is that Jim Carrey is already planning to put on 40 pounds to fill the role of Curly."

I have little to no interest in seeing this movie. I never got 3 Stooges humor and doubt I ever will.

You know who would really work as Curly?
Kevin James.

Hugh Jackman as Moe, and Larry David as Larry. Dear god, imagine the possibilities!

edit: Ooh, and Benicio as Shemp! Larry the Cable guy as Curly Joe! Directed by Sam Raimi.

I guess he doesn't want to go through the horror of wearing a fat suit.

IMDB.com has said that he lost a ton of weight for his role as The Green Hornet.

If Sam Raimi directed The Three Stooges, it would star Bruce Campbell, his brother Ted, and probably Lucy Lawless.

Hey Hollywood - Let's find another venerable franchise with name recognition and prostitute the hell out of it - brilliant!

The main problem they have going into this project is that Three Stooges comedy doesn't translate to feature-length films. The Stooges themselves proved this.

And then the only way to make a prospective 'blockbuster' today is to gear the project toward the younguns that will go watch it five times. So out goes over-the-top graphic violence to protect the PG-13 rating. (Remember the one where they were telephone repairmen? And Curly kept spiking Moe in the eye with his pole-climbing stirrup?



I do not look forward to 78 minutes of fart and poop gags.

I have heard of the movie, and Benicio Del Toro's involvement. I've also heard that the way it's being made is that the movie itself will be remakes of 3 Stooges shorts in succession. Best of luck breaking a leg on this one: they have a lot to live up to, and at the same time they don't.

Brain Donors, made in 1992. John Turturro pulls off the Groucho character act seamlessly. Even the screenplay and characters are based off of A Night At the Opera, at least according to IMDB (I'll give it credit on this one since I've seen it).

I think they've hired three guys who are great physical comedians and two directors who know how to shoot comedy. I don't see how this doesn't have a shot at being good. Box office success is another story, but who's really concerned by that outside of the beancounters?

When I first heard that the Farrellys were making a Stooges movie, I was actually hoping that they would take this route ... Just pretend like they're making another short from the 30s (i.e. a true period piece with no modern conveniences) except that it's 90-odd minutes long.

Of course, I was also hoping they would use the rotoscoping technique (like in "A Scanner Darkly") so that could cast an actor who looks like Larry whilst having Billy West provide the actual voice ... but I wasn't holding my breath on that one.




Oh, and please, for the love of Mike ... Make sure Shemp is a part of this movie! I don't care if they make like the Scooby-Doo movie (where Scrappy-Doo is revealed to be the surprise villain at the end), he at least needs to make a cameo of some sort.

This (youtube.com) shouldn't be the only place where the Four Stooges appear together ...

They're not chock full of pratfalls, but I'd argue Del Toro's hopped-up roles in both THE USUAL SUSPECTS and SIN CITY display all the required traits for physical comedy.

I wouldn't call it award-winning, but it's a good Wonder Years-like tale about dignity and tolerance. While Ed Harris does well as Mr. Simon, it's Alexander Walters, Daniel Yelsky and Chase Ellison as the main protagonists in the movie that carry it.
