What do you think about this flick? I personally love it, but people seem to be pretty divided about it (and the online scores make it look like a complete piece of trash). For me, though, it feels like one of the old shorts, only in color... and that's proof that it is well-done.

I literally laughed the whole time, particularly during this lovely sequence:

mmmmm....  kind of decent vocal impressions of the original actors (Moe specifically; little shown in this clip of Curly or Larry). And the costumes are OK, serviceable. Not great, not bad. Otherwise I disagree with your assessment. I just don't think it feels like the old shorts at all. It is an interesting way to attempt to bring them into modern times, but I don't think it's successful, and I kind of think updating their humor style can't work with contemporary content.

Gotta hand it to ya Silvervix, my standard for comedy is, "did it make me laugh?".

And the answer for the Three Stooges Movie is Yes, I did indeed laugh. I was prepared to hate this movie but I found it funny. 

I also agree with MM, this movie revives a type of physical comedy that lives in the past  and should stay there. That's why the Real Stooges will always inhabit the word of Hollywood before World War II, which we can all visit anytime, online.

Even while the original Stooges were still alive, the comedy and become contemporary for the movies that were made before Larry's death:

Actually, the costumers are the one thing I couldn't swallow while watching the movie. It didn't matter what they put on, it felt off-putting.

Edd, buddy, I never said that. Honestly, I never saw the film.
