Why yes. Yes, I do plan to take the kid to the Three Stooges tonight...

nyuk nyuk nyuk!

With reviews ranging from 'awesome' to "eh," (and someone I know personally saying it's a riot), should be a good time tonight.

1. Get some prime Stooges on DVD

Both you and the sprout will love those oldies!

3. The Atlanta-Journal Constitution gave it a "B" for a review.

They are pretty harsh (I usually agree with them) so I guess it's pretty good.

4. I was surprised on the reviews I have seen/heard that it was funny and good

because the trailer makes me want to vomit. The stooges were great growing up, funny as heck, and these clowns don't seem to capture their essence to me from what little snippets they show. But, I heard again today on the radio from the Hollywood reporter dude that it was 4 stars. I guess I might see it.

5. Interesting - even the negative reviews I've read say the one redeeming quality...

... is the dead-on performance of the stars.

6. That befuddles me really

I watch the commercial for it, and I am like good grief. These are nothing like them. I honestly think nobody could duplicate their humor and personality.

9. I know what you mean

I want to see it and my 9 year old granddaughter asked me to take her to see it so OF COURSE we will be going to see it - but last night I saw the scene with the baby pee and didn't even crack a smile. It had me worried. hopefully the rest will be better.

Incidentally, i asked my granddaughter why she wanted to see the movie and she said "I just wanna see Snookie get poked in the eye"

beer came out my nose. That kid makes me laugh so much.

10. Now that is funny!!!!

I will likely go with apprehension. I laugh a lot in life all day, but if something isn't funny I won't be.

7. So far a 50/50 split from the critics --

just like opinions of the original Stooges, which is a good sign. I will be checking this out, too. Love The Stooges, love the Farrelly Bros.

8. Here's a good piece on the critical reception. One quote is particularly revealing

... some know their positive review is unexpected or even unwelcome. HitFlix’s Drew McWeeny noted, “I’m not supposed to say anything nice about this film. That’s the message that has been sent loud and clear ever since the first trailer for the movie arrived online.”
