The Farrelly Brothers Milk The Three Stooges: Dumb and Dumbererer Without The Jokes

by | 11th, December 2011

THE Stooges is the Farrelly Brothers film about the Three Stooges. And it is awful. It’s the disappointing sequel to the hit film that never was. It’s Dumb and Dumbererer.

The rumoured original line up to play Larry, Moe and Curly was Sean Penn, Benicio Del Toro and Jim Carrey. None of them are in it. And how delighted they must be. The film features, instead, Chris Diamantopoulos, Sean Hayes and Will Sasso, all destined to be the answer to the Trivial Pursuit question: who appeared in the worst tribute film of all time?

The film’s best bit is MTV Jersey Shore’s Snooki getting poked in the eye with a finger. Had the finger re-emerged stuck to a large eyeball attached to a tiny Juicy Couture logo-ed brain, the film could have touched cult status. (And what adolescent boy expect to see a finger in the box? C’mon own up. Yep. None of you.)

The best bit for teenage boys and gnostic priests who might watch the film hoping to see a buxom nun a bikini is the buxom nun in the bikini.

No stars but one big bra. Is that fitting tagline for a film tribute to comedy greats..?

Spotter: Cory Doctorow
