Though ‘The Three Stooges’ originally aired on television from the 50’s – 70’s, I became familiarized with the series as a child through syndication. Needless to say, I thought the series was hilarious, as did my older relatives.
So when I saw the official trailer for the 2012 film — of the same name — premiered today I was shocked & overwhelmingly disappointed that such a classic series would be re-enacted so poorly.
1) The film is set in a present-day setting. Why? I feel like a lot of the show’s humor was based in antiquity. I can’t see Moe, Larry & Curly being funny in 2012.
2) Jennifer Hudson & Sofia Vergara, two talented actresses, are a part of this mess.
3) Snooki & J-Woww appear in the movie — WHY, WHY, WHY?!
