Don't Watch: A New 'Jackass' Inspired Trailer for 'The Three Stooges'
While audiences shouldn't be expecting anything but stupid slapstick humor from the long gestating big screen take on The Three Stooges from Bobby and Peter Farrelly, the once great comedic minds behind Dumb & Dumber and There's Something About Mary, there's just something that doesn't feel right about the flick. The teaser didn't impress us, and now a new trailer, taking cues from those modern day stooges from Jackass doesn't change our minds. It just seems like this has missed the boat as the face of comedy has changed dramatically. Prat falls and hard hits are funny, but in the age of YouTube, only if they are real.
Here's the second official trailer for Bobby & Peter Farrelly's The Three Stooges, originally from Yahoo:
The Three Stooges is written & directed by filmmaking brothers Bobby & Peter Farrelly, of the comedies including Dumb & Dumber, Kingpin, There's Something About Mary, Shallow Hal, The Heartbreak Kid and Hall Pass. Inspired by the original "Three Stooges" shorts from the 1930s, the storyline will follow the trio from when they're orphans and into adulthood. The film will be divided into three half-hour shorts, and the Stooges will get mixed up in plots involving murder and a reality show. In addition to Diamantopoulos, Hayes and Sasso, the supporting cast includes Jane Lynch, Larry David, Sofía Vergara, Jennifer Hudson and Stephen Collins. Fox is bringing the new Three Stooges to theaters everywhere April 13th, 2012. Anyone?
