The above trailer is for the new Three Stooges movie which is an attempt to re-introduce the comedy act from early last century. While the original trio has a special place in both comedy and cinema history, this new movie seems awfully dated for the modern day. There will always be a place for physical comedy in the entertainment world. Michael Richards’ portrayal of Kramer in Seinfeld and the Jackass movies are contemporary examples of the art form. The slapstick portrayed in the trailer though seems almost painfully unfunny to me. Is it because I’m just a cynical bastard that can no longer enjoy the simple comedy of that nature? I don’t know. What I do know is that the movie seems to faithfully recreate the hijinks that were in the original movies. The question is, does anyone find that funny anymore?

But here is the kicker…kids will like it, and kids movies always do well beacuse parents will have to buy tickets as well.
I loved the three stooges between the ages of abotu 6 and 10, and if I was that age now I would probably find it hilarious.
I think kids will have to rescue this movie for it not to be a flop. Part of me though believes that even kids won’t be entertained by this.
