It’s admittedly a bit jarring watching The Three Stooges in color. As a child, I became so accustomed to seeing Moe, Larry, and Curly in black and white, delivering eye-poking hijinks worthy of more than a few knee-slaps. So the Farrelly Brothers — who decided to helm April’s The Three Stooges — had an unenviable task ahead of them: Bringing Moe, Larry, and Curly up to date in a world where slapstick humor seems a bit dated.
If we look at the new trailer for the movie (starring Chris Diamantopoulos, Sean Hayes, and Will Sasso), it seems the Farrelly Brothers are staying true to their source material… with a few exceptions. Example: I don’t recall Snooki ever making an appearance in any of the Three Stooges films. But the franchise seems to be in good hands — who, in modern filmmaking, does slapstick quite as well as the Farrellys? Watch the trailer after the jump.
