  • The Stooges were always better in short doses. And 90 minutes of PG nyuk-nyuk-nyuk can seem like an eternity. show more

  • It's just not enough to say that The Three Stooges is the death of comedy. Rather, it's the death, burial, putrefaction and decomposition of comedy. It is where comedy, once alive, ends up as dust blowing in the wind, like something out of a really bad Kansas song. show more

  • Pop culture references intermingle with the loopy trio's iconic foolishness, and the result is a movie with some big laughs, plenty of heart and terrible coifs. show more

    I\'m glad I saw this at home, because I laugh so hard that I had to step out of room, the family had to pause the movie 3 times so I won\'t miss the movie. I only feel it had a weak ending. The actors were great. A must have for my collections...
