Fresh: Get ready for something more shocking than a poke in the eye: The Three Stooges is genuinely funny, a no-holds-barred, smart-stupid comedy that (at the screening I attended, anyway) will win over Stooge-philes and non-believers alike.
- Alonso Duralde, The Wrap, Thursday, April 12, 2012
Fresh: There is an appealing nyuk, nyuk nostalgic spirit to"The Three Stooges."
- Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Thursday, April 12, 2012
Fresh: 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.

This is a complete revitalization of the Three Stooges, bringing them into today's world, for a new audience. It's the exact same physical humor, and nuck nuck nucks as before, just different actors in today's world. The actors all do a fantastic job portraying Larry(Sean Hayes), Curly(Will Sasso), and Moe(Chris Diamantopoulos). The rest of the cast is good as well, especially Larry David as a nun, and a cameo by the Jersey Shore cast. The basic premise is that the Stooges grew up in an orphanage, and now the orphanage is being shut down, unless they can come up with the money to save it. Original? No. Funny? Yes, especially if you love the old Stooges. Brings back lots of memories, and hopefully this movie will help kids get introduced to the stooges, and their brand can live on. This is rated PG, just make sure the kids know the violence is pretend(there is a hilarious bit at the end as an advisory). Love The Stooges, and some may say this kind of comedy is dated, but I found it refreshing. Great movie if you want a couple harmless chuckles.

Bobby and Peter Farrelly bring old style slapstick comedy to modern days with The Three Stooges.The story is simple and requires less than 90 minutes to tell. The story is also told in episodes, which is broken up quite nicely and laced with the original theme song. With that said, the story does take a back seat to the antics of the Stooges.The slapstick humor and sound effects stay true to how the Stooges should behave and it is all delivered at rapid fire pace for most of the film. The biggest challenge is finding a way to work this comedy into modern times. At times, this picture successfully does that, but at others it is awkward and out of place.Chris Diamantopoulos, Sean Hayes, and Will Sasso deliver good performances. Their facial expressions, movements, and line delivery successfully brings out the personalities of the Stooges.The Three Stooges will definitely divide the audience, but fans of the original series will get the most out of this.
