As a dyed-in-the-wool Stooge-o-phile, I'm not sure how to feel about this. On one hand, the casting looks good, and the actors got the mannerisms
and the infamous eye-pokes down pat. On the other hand, they took the stooges out of their time and place, and put them in a Catholic orphanage (the
Stooges were Jewish).
Their classic clothes from the 30s and 40s, Curly's famous dancing (like the rhumba), those snooty cocktail parties with rich snobs, and some of the
slang from that time, such as "Gee that's swell" and "Swing it" will be missing.
Naturally, I'm still going to see it. Thanks for the clip. The Farrelly Brothers are always good for a laugh, I just hope I can get over a lifetime
of watching the Stooges so I can judge this film on its own merit.
