    "The Three Stooges" Movie Story Structure

    Co-Writer/Co-Director Peter Farrelly revealed more details about how the film's story will be structured.

    He said that you'll be seeing the Moe, Larry and Curly you know on-screen. "They’re going to look the same, dress the same, sound the same, act the same, with the same sound effects."

    While it was know the movie will be divided up into three acts, Farrelly talked more about each part:

    Most of it will be set in the present day, except for the first act, which begins 40 years ago. "A car whips by an orphanage, throws a duffel bag out its window and keeps going," Farrelly says. "A nun sees the duffel and opens it up, and a little baby hand comes out and — Boink! — hits her in the eye. So that first episode is them growing up in the orphanage."

    The second act picks up with them as adults, in their early 40s, leaving the orphanage and heading out on the road together. After various misadventures, the trio splits up and the third act starts with them alone — and finding that all the slapping, eye-gouging, and head-bonking isn't a useful way of dealing with the outside world.

    "Suddenly, when Moe hits somebody he doesn't know, that's assault and battery," Farrelly says, laughing.


    Farrelly added that they are shooting for a PG rating, keeping the "violence" cartoony.

    That sounds really awesome! Are Del Toro and Penn still slated to be on board? I know Carrey left a while ago.

    I believe all three are off the project and they are casting unknowns for the roles

    Recently the rumor is that johnny knoxville will be Moe, I can't think of his name but the guy who did d**k in a box on SNL and was in some movie call hotrod as larry, and some austirallian comedian as curly. Right now Johnny is the only one I have 100 % backing of the others...not so much.

    I was gonna say, wtf happened to the movie? I didn't know Carrey left, kinda sucks, I was hoping for a Carrey comeback after his lack of appealing movies.

    I'd rather see a Larry, Moe, and JOE sketch than see this.

    I dunno... Some comedians are so classic that they can't be imitated. The Three Stooges are pretty much at the top of that list as far as I'm concerned. They weren't characters that you can remake, they were who they were. It just won't be the same to me, it can't be.

    I give you, the teaser trailer, complete with Jersey Show's Snooki getting Moe's trademark fingers in her eyes, LOL

    The Three Stooges 2011 Teaser Trailer - YouTube

    They seemed to have the mannerisms and voices down pretty well, but the trick is, are we seeing the best parts of the movie now, or will be funny throughout

    Wow. It's as though our beloved Stooges came back from the great comedy club in the sky. The casting is spot-on.

    As for the rest of the film... I confess that the present-day setting is something I'm still trying to get used to, but I'm willing to overlook that if the other elements are solid. Color me amused, and more than willing to give this movie a chance.

    I got to agree. When I first heard about this project way back, my eyes rolled around faster than a Vegas slot machine. But see the teaser trailer, I was laughing quite a bit.

    I'll definitely give this one a chance.

    Dear God, the actors are spot-on. Hollywood, making a faithful adaptation of three of the most beloved comedy icons of all time?

    DOES NOT COMPUTE!

    I don't know, even after seeing the trailer, I am not completely convinced. I always loved watching the stooges, so, my expectations are rather high. I do admit lol'ing at the end with him poking her eyes. But, I just look at it and see 3 guys trying to pretend they are the original stooges. I will probably watch it, but again, I really hope they live up to it.

    Yeah, the babies part definately was cringe worthy. Plus, why is there a dude dressed like a nun answering the door!?

    I still wanna know what Curly would be like if Jim Carrey stayed on.

    I remember 10 to 12 yrs ago there was a television movie about the Stooges.

    Micheal Chiklis played Curly

    Holy crap. This could have turned out so much worse. This now has my attention.
