Be Stupid On Your Own

Via Dave Barry..... I fail to see the point of this.

Studio has set Sean Penn to play Larry, and negotiations are underway with Jim Carrey to play Curly, with the actor already making plans to gain 40 pounds to approximate the physical dimensions of Jerome "Curly" Howard. The studio is zeroing in on Benicio Del Toro to play Moe.

Sean Penn? But wait, there's less.

The film is not a biopic, but rather a comedy built around the antics of the three characters that Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Howard played in the Columbia Pictures shorts.

So it's just going to be another shallow slapstick comedy distinguished from similar movies by the fact that the characters are named after the original Stooges? If they must do this, change the characters' names, call the movie "Dumb, Dumber, and Dumbest" or "Three Idiots with High Pain Tolerance" and let it try to stand on its own. Carrey in particular has enough of a resume in this regard that he doesn't need to sponge from others. I'm not a Three Stooges fan, but they built their legacy and they deserve to have it left alone.

I quite agree. This makes even less sense than the Little Rascals remake of a couple years ago. I predict this movie will be as painfully unfunny as Steve Martin's "Pink Panther" remakes. Let the Stooges - their goofy sound effects, hilariously inept stunts and all - live on in their shorts and nowhere else.
