Today, CinemaBlend has the first trailer for the new film from the Farrelly Brothers, The Three Stooges, starring Sean Hayes (that’s right, that’s him on the left of that fake poster up there), Will Sasso (looking quite heavy again), and Chris Diamantopolous (I don’t know, either) as Moe.
Many have already given up on the film the minute the once-prestigious cast of Sean Penn, Jim Carrey, and Benicio Del Toro turned into….this. Still, it is the Farrellys, and they long have yearned to make this film. Mel Gibson was long attached to the project for his Stooges fanaticism, but recent events kept him far away from the new film. It’s too bad that this film will be remembered for what it wasn’t, instead of what it is: Another stupid comedy from the Farrellys. See for yourself:
I think it has the potential to be at the very least funny on a pure slapstick level. While it does seem the actors are too focused on doing impressions of the Stooges, I think there can still be some funny gags, which is the only reason I ever liked the Stooges in the first place. No, it’s not three big actors hamming it up, but it looks like enough to make me laugh, and that’s all I expect.
