and they have 3 great (in my opinion) actors for it......Sean Penn/Jim Carrey and Bernie del Torrio.....these guys all dive headfirst into any role and totally immerse themselves in their characters.....so I am really looking forward to this movie.......heres the link to the news release in Variety

I can't picture Carrey being Curly there is another actor who played him better in the last movie about the 3 stooges lives that portrayed Curly better, Sean Penn won't cut the role of Larry either, and I have watched ALL of the movies clips etc over my 57 yrs of life to know the stooges all of them plus the others who filled in all the way back to Ted Healey days.

you are entitled to your opinion Gary

I myself think they will do great jobs-we shall see......was wondering-are you a songwriter or just someone who posts in JPF for the fun of it?........like the dearly departed Nubbin-any relation? you are both from Texas........

I found it a little sad, myself. Not that Carrey isn't a great comic actor, but the whole project bespeaks a lack of originality I've complained about before. We don't need to re-make The Three Stooges, we need to do something *new* that's as good as The Three Stooges were.

I know what you mean Joe

Hollywood does alot of remakes which are seldom-if ever good as the original stuff....its cheap and easy to do more of the same-rather than be risky and creative and possibly endanger your cushy job.....in that respect Hollywood and Music Row are much alike......when faced with a tough decision-they usually reach for the Chicken Switch and go with the same old stuff or a slight variation of it thinly disguised with new characters....

that said-i still will risk my ten bucks on something with Sean Penn and Jim Carey in it......

I gave it some more serious thoughts and realized some old things are best kept old and not brought back to life again and the 3 stooges is one of them that should be shown as they were and not updated or redone, so for their sake I hope the movie fails because all that Hollywood wants to do is captilize on the $$$$ and not give the families any consideration

Carrey's too tall. Need to have three short great character actors who will make us think of the three stooges,,,not the very well known actors. There's a good story about the Three Stooges that many do not know. Would make for a dramatic movie, with the known slapstick as only here and there,,,,,,if done right.

The Stooges short height were part of their appeal in the scenes with other people. To have that out of balance just dismisses one important factor of their unique act.

But,,,,the bottom line is of course,,,,,box office draw.

Read the book about their journey, and picture them.

Jim Carey is pretty tall indeed

I thought about that myself John

my guess is that its likely they will minimize his height to some degree through some digital magic and set modifications....in the old days Hollywood made female leads stand in specically constructed holes or depressions on the set so that short actors-like ALAN LADD for instance-among others-would look taller.......

and as you said-its all about box office drawing power

Jim Carey reels em in.....he is-I feel- already a legendary comedic actor in his own time....

I remember reading that the Three Stooges was the first TV show that added sound effects after filming.

Yeah, they could have played Munchkins in the Wizard of Oz. They could always use 7' actors to play supporting roles in the new movie. That would make Carrey appear shorter.

Jim Carrey? Adding 50 pounds would help, but who plans on teaching him to do tight, ensemble comedy?

You want to do a re-make, you either go for the closest thing you can get to clones (and if you're going to bother with that, why not re-master the original?) or you cast for the story line, rewrite for cast limitations as needed, and pray.

Speaking of which, Moe Howard, used to say that one of the reasons the Stooges were remembered was because of the impact of a short feature. Don't remember the exact quote, but it was something like "We couldn't maintain that level of energy for a full-length film, and I know the audience couldn't, either. It's like a magician; you do every trick once, and they love you, but who wants to see the same rabbit come out of twenty different hats?"

I talked to several members of my family and friends and asked them their opinions of this movie and actors and the majority of them feel the same way that certain movies, certain roles characters should not be revived that it would be better for Hollywood to seek new comedy acts that have not been heard of and make them stars instead of digging up the resting bones of the old ones.

No Ray

But I did hear that the producers are scouting Brunswick,Georgia as a possible location because that way they could do a Christmas
Sequel in which the Stooges are thought to be the Three Wise Men by the locals-who follow them around seeking leadership......

It may have been a better idea not to associate the movie with "The Three Stooges".

They could call it "The Lunatics". Maybe after the fact, the producers could admit they followed "The Three Stooges" as a model.

At least that way the audience wouldn't have preconceived expectations. Don't know; I wonder how many movies made from classic TV shows have been successful?

I understand the producers are probably counting on "The Three Stooges" icon to generate a larger audience, but it is also setting-up the audience for a disappointment if the audience can't bond the movie to the original three stooges.

I dont think many have been successful John

the latest remake for the big screen-Bewitched-was pretty dreadful I heard....seemed to disapear pretty quick.......I could be wrong-but siince in Hollywood demographics are everything-they are probaly aiming at a audience that has never seen the original Stooges.....that would explain casting Jim Carey-cause the young'ens dont know the height of the originals anyway.......I mean us old folks would have to be delusional to think they are doing a major release in Hollywood aimed at the 50 and over crowd......as in music-not likely.....but like I said-although most remakes dont get my money-this one will just cause I like the actors and I feel they are doing it out of respect for the originals and not just "phoning it in for a paycheck"

Jim Carrey did a phenomenal portrayal of Andy Kaufman in "Man in the Moon", despite being much taller than the real-life Kaufman. I don't believe the actor's height is a factor at all.

With these three actors chosen in the leading roles, It should be a very good movie, and I look forward to seeing it.

"The Three Stooges" can't be ruined Gary - they're set in stone.

One bad movie won't ruin an actor's career either. If it did there wouldn't be many actors left.

exactly Kevin

Jim Carrey is one of those guys who has no limits-he will-as I said-just dive into this role.....God help the crew cause that dude will be "in character" for the whole three months or whatever it takes to shoot the movie....but that in itself should be quite entertaining for them to see.....the only major problem I can really see is Carrey and Sean Penn both trying to steal the show.....but again-aside from the director having to referee that battle-the total effect of their competition should work for the best end result as far as the movie itself......

right John

though all actors would like to buy back the original copies of bombs they made-they eventually recover and are-like folks in music-most eager for artistic redemption in their next project.....I like the attitude Robin Williams had about a movie he was in-that even he admitted really sucked.....he was on Letterman or Leno-whichever-trying to promote "Club Paradise"...But he just couldnt sincerely reccomend it and joked-"yes great movie,great movie-I saw it on The Plane going home after we finished shooting it"

that's right John the 3 stooges can't be ruined so why try making them again, or has Hollywood no new inventive talent to be discovered are we now to start redoing the marx brothers next, then redo Abbott and Costello then Lewis and Martin/ heck why stop there let's just redo the whole vault and redo everybody who's had a comedy team or solo with these same actors.My point is to move on to a higher level if they can, but like everyone said maybe Hollywood has to remake legends , for why I don't know the old reruns of the 3 stooges will be playing forever so why make new ones? I suggest that they just start showing the complete reruns if this new generation wants that comedy back, heck maybe they could get another generation of the Waltons or remake them over into a movie?
