The Three Stooges has a Solid Opening Weekend, but Critics are Divided
The critics seem divided on the stooges. It seems split right down the middle, which was to be expected. Most of the bad reviews stem form the issues of introducing comedy set in a time before most of the moviegoers were even born into modern situations. The haters said it did not seem to be believable that these characters could seem so so out of place. Some loved it for staying so true to the original. The main issue writers must have faced in writing the script is how far to stray from the original characters.
On the one hand superfans of the orignial Moe, Larry and Curly would be outraged if their beloved dimwits were changed in any way. On the other hand the younger audience hoped that the movie would be somewhat updated and appealing. Both hands could notbe pleased. So it seems the official opening weekend report on The Three Stooges is that its not for everyone, but it might be for you. What are your thoughts?
