3 Stooges movie in 2010 ???

Is it possible to do anything that will pay tribute to the longest running comedy show EVER.....????

I doubt it, but I will go anyway.

Apparently its not a documentary but kind of an actual movie with them as characters. I think its G. Clooney as Moe, J. Carry as Larry, and I'm not sure about Curly.

What do you think?

Actually Jim Carey is Curley, Benicio Del Toro as Moe and Paul Giammatti as Larry.

It is the Farrelli Brothers doing it so It might be funny....but I just don't see it working

I heard about this a few months ago, but couldn't remeber who is playing who so I checked it out on IMDB.

Benicio del Toro is playing Moe and Paul Giamatti is Larry. No listing for Curly though I think it mat be Jim Carrey.

Beat me to it TDF

Did You Hear About the Morgans?
Sarah Jessica Parker and Hugh Grant are a Manhattan couple who are sent to hide in small-town Wyoming after they witness a murder.

Nine
(Limited) A film director reaches a creative and personal crisis of epic proportions while balancing the numerous women in his life.

The Young Victoria
(Limited) Emily Blunt stars in the story of the early years of Queen Victoria's rule and her legendary romance with Prince Albert.

Its almost like Hollywood is Conceding this weekend

I'm with you Larry. Anyone who thinks that the Stooges can be re-made need only look at the last of the originals with Joe Besser.

And those still had Moe and Larry.

What's next--remaking the Marx Brothers with Billy Crystal as Groucho?

The sad thing is that the remake will keep people who did not see the originals from checking them out.

Me too. And the actors look much more like the original Stooges than I expected.

It looks pretty damn good. The Farelly's from what I understand did not want to tweak the original characters and kept it as close to authentic as possible. The guy playing curly is a good friend of a buddy of mines. He used to be on MadTV. He seems like he does a good job with it.
