    they look legit, but it's almost destined to have a piece of sh!t plot. i think it would have been way cooler if it was made into a biographical film.

        @moviegeek -- I will....when it comes to DVD.

          why is everyone putting this movie down, me personally as a fan of the stooges am looking forward to this film. i dont care when it comes out, do you really think people are gonna care about titanic in 3-d, yeah probably. i already know its not gonna be top box office, but this is something different. not once did they say it was gonna be a docu-drama, from the get go they clearly stated it was gonna be a three segment (episode) movie. for all you nay sayers, maybe wait for a preview before you start to judge, who knows, the farrelly brothers are talented, they may come out and kick you in the ass with some good ole classic slap stick humor.

            Bahha. No one will watch this.

              lol@skywise! I couldn't agree more, It seriously feels like it's going to be the most colossally UN-funny movie about 3 comedians in the history of cinema. But ya know? gandoff2169 might be right!


              • bane5000 • 4 years ago

                This crap again, and im sure the cameos from the two skanks from Jersey Shore are really gonna make sense and up the ticket sales of this film


                • skywise • 4 years ago

                  i kept hoping this movie would just die.

                    most of the campness witnessed in EVIL DEAD 2 is stun from his hand of paying homage to the three stooges!


                    • Zak-Lee-Ferguson • 4 years ago

                      The worst directing choice ever- Sam Raimi as much of a fanboy- he could have done so much with it!

                        Wouldn't be surprised f Titanic took first place, and American Reunion second, with this opening at third.


                        • thedude1 • 4 years ago

                          There is no way they will put this movie up against the titanic 3D release, American Reunion, and the other two movies. The release will be changed for sure.

                            @gandoff they've made so many docu-drama Three Stooges movies it's ridiculous lol

                              Sadly this film is going forward. Amazingly, I can see Titanic winning that weekend rather easily.

                                F*ck this movie.


                                • gandoff • 4 years ago

                                  Do WHAT??? I thought this was suppost to be about the three stooges and not a Three Stooges movie? Like a docu-drama history piece. This might be bad,,,,,, BUT, with some kid movies getting way over I never thought would make it out of the first showing with out a bad smell, this might end up being big.


                                  • supermanvenom • 4 years ago

                                    I dunno about the three segments. Please don't scew this up, the original show was so aweome and funny.


                                    • pjwolsker • 4 years ago
