Oooooh....that could be fun. And it's even the Farrelly brothers, a bonus.

I'm a huge Three Stooges fan. I read a biography on them when I was about 20. I remember seeing a made for TV movie about them a few years ago that wasn't bad.

Thanks for the heads up.

I don't see a good reason for this. Their comedy stands up to the test of time as superb, and remakes are almost always destined to fail.

If it's just a comedy movie, then I agree. I was hoping there would be a lot of biography aspects to it.

It's not a biography, just updated comedy. I agree with you Mich.

The film is not a biopic but a fictional treatment that maintains the Stooges' gleeful slap schtick updated for a modern milieu.

Changing the setting of the Three Stooges is like changing the setting of Blade Runner to a fantasy world... the setting is an integral part of what makes the comedy outstanding.

Some remakes can do this (Romeo and Juliet remakes are pretty much setting independant, be it West Side Story, or whatnot). Other works (Army of Darkness), the setting is quite important and stuff gets lost if it is changed.

If they go through with such a travesty they should also be forced remake Buster Keaton movies, and do their own stunts just like Buster did.

A movie on Buster Keatons life is being thrown around, Bill Paxton asked Jimmy Fallon to play Keaton.(on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon)

Stymie knocks on screened backdoor to an old woman's home:

"Hey lady, do you have any extra food?"

Old woman lets him into kitchen, then opens ice-box fridge:

"I don't know. Let's see. Hmm, I have some food here. Are you a vegetarian?"

Stymie, hand on heart, looks back and exclaims:

"No ma'am. I's an Episcopalian!"

Peter and Bobby Farrelly wrote the script, which Bobby has referenced as "Dumb, Dumber & Dumbest," and will produce with Bradley Thomas and Charlie Wessler.

I left the drive-in 3/4 into the Dumb and Dumber movie, thought it was awful. And the guy who wrote it is referencing the "Dumber" movie then I can just imagine what it will be like. Pass.

Actually I think a Remake of The Marx Bros. "Day at the Races" or "Night at the Opera" would be a hoot with Jim Carey as Grucho...Steve Martin as Harpo (Who BTW plays a Mean Harp)...Robin Williams as Zeppo.

Even Steve Martin can't rescue a movie that is that poorly written,but if they just follow the original script of Day at the Races or Night at the Opera including all of the Adlibs I think that Carey,Martin and Williams would do a superb job!

I have to agree with MV
If it ain't broke don't fix it.

no one will ever be as good as the 3 stooges, Laurel & Hardy, Buster Keaton or the Marx Brothers
so why even bother.

+1 for the Three Stooges.

+1 for the Little Rascals

I haven't watched a Laurel & Hardy short in ages. The library down the street from my childhood home showed the Three Stooges, Little Rascals, and Laurel & Hardy during the Saturday matinees. That's one of the things I miss the most about my childhood: silly slapstick movies on Saturday.

speaking of little rascals, my father worked with Jerry Schatz (or Jerry tucker his stage name) at
RCA in the 60s. He was the rich kid with the fancy fire engine pictured below.
