I was torn on the score for this one, because I could tell that the people who made this film had nothing but love for the original Stooges, but then again, there wasn’t much of a plot here to judge.
I will admit there were a few funny gags here and there, though…especially the salmon farm bit.
I pretty much have to give a 3 here. The three main actors (and even the kids that played their younger versions) all did amazing imitations of the originals, which in this case is a great thing.
As for Sofia Vergara, I would make a “What are you doing here?” comment, but she was already in The Smurfs, so apparently she’ll do anything for a paycheck.
I have to admit, I did like those title cards and circle wipes.
Several products used as punchlines throughout, but using Jersey Shore as major plot point is just ridiculous…mostly because nothing dates a movie like forced, current pop culture references.
I’ve always preferred the comedy stylings of the Marx Brothers** over the Three Stooges, so there’s pretty much no reason to ever return to this.
**Let’s hope they never EVER give the Marx Brothers the same “updated” treatment. Mostly because they’d probably leave Zeppo out, and that’s just not fair.
