So why bother with this earnest but imperfect impersonation when the original artists are readily available on VHS and DVD?

Peter and Bobby Farrelly's thoroughly enjoyable paean to Moe, Larry and Curly and the art of the eye poke.

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

I didn't laugh much. I don't think the Stooges are funny, although perhaps I might once have. Some of the sight gags were clever, but meh. The three leads did an admirable job of impersonation. I think this might be pretty much the movie Stooges fans were looking for.

There's just some great imitations of what remains an acquired taste.

A funny, good-hearted resuscitation of Hollywood's beloved lowbrow lunkheads.

The Three Stooges isn't very funny, but it is, like last year's far superior The Muppets, a sincere act of fandom on an epic scale.

I must admit, pure comedy isn't usually my thing. I didn't really know what to expect from this film - and I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be better than I imagined! The thing about this film is that it's actually more than just straight comedy, it has a story which gave me warm fuzzies by the end. And yes, some of the comedy is silly, but...

A lot of negative "official" reviews some saying this wasn't funny. Sorry but I'd have to disagree. I liked this movie as it was suitable for kids ( PG rating ) but also had AO humour that went way over kids heads and wouldnt have even been noticed by them. A good way to spend an afternoon :)

What a total utter and complete load of tosh. Leave your brain at home this is almost as unbearable as "Jack and Jill". Extraordinarily primitive not dumb dumbest but dumbest ever. Avoid at all cost.
