I’ll be the first to admit, I was hesitant to check out The Three Stooges. I felt I was a bit too sophisticated, too uppity to fall for this low brow humor.
But curiosity got the best of me, and it has been the top movie at the box office. I loved it!
Yes it is silly, but the humor of yesteryear still works today.
This tale moves quickly as the three stooges, Moe (Chris Diamantopoulos), Larry (Sean Hayes), and Curly (Will Sasso) are literally dropped off at the orphanage. They quickly adapt and create mischief.
Fast forward twenty-five years and they set out on a mission for the nuns at the orphanage. In a throwback to the Blues Brothers, they embark on a quest to find the needed eight hundred and thirty thousand dollars that will save the only home they have ever known.
This sends them off to the big city, and their hijinks continue as their entrepreneur spirit gets them in some really dicey situations. These knuckleheads cross paths with modern-day knuckleheads, none other than Snooki and the gang.
A personal treat was to see all the background sites from Atlanta. Many locations around Midtown Atlanta appear, and in one scene the 14th Street Playhouse marquee is plainly visible. There are also several views of a stately manor that sits in the heart of Buckhead.
There are also cameo appearances from Jennifer Hudson, Larry David, and Jane Lynch, just to name a few. The three stooges look very much like the original three stooges and maintain this appearance as they transition from childhood to adolescence, and finally adulthood. You’ve got to love their hair styles!
Good things come in three’s, and The Three Stooges does not disappoint. A must see, “Soitainly!”
