Now, here’s the thing. A lot of people will be bitching mercilessly about the new Three Stooges trailer…
…but the problem is that all of the comedy in this trailer is exactly like classic Three Stooges, except the Stooges live in the modern day. The performances are just as broad as old Stooges shorts were. The slapstick is just as crude and energetic as old Stooges shorts’ slapstick was. The dialogue is just as forced as old Stooges dialogue was. Will Sasso is just as bald as Curly Howard was.
If the movie is like this trailer, then people who proclaim their love for the original Three Stooges and who say this is garbage will be exposed as poseurs. Hypocrites. Comedy snobs.
(For my part, I am kinda meh about it, which is not a knock on its quality as a Three Stooges movie. I was not always meh about the Three Stooges – but then I turned nine, and swore my allegiance to Lords Julius, Leonard and Arthur forevermore.)
