|New Stooges! Will "Curly" Sasso, John "Moe" Diamontopoulos & Sean "Larry" Hayes.|
Sorry anime fans, this is not the moe' some of you strange ones are into. Nothing cute, feminine, or frilly about it. This is the in your face, eye poking, wise crackin', English fracturing, VIOLENT (In a fun way.) Moe we oldsters grew up with.
I recall when Screen Gems released the old Columbia short comedies to TV on an unsuspecting generation in the fifties & thus ruining/enhancing the childhood of millions. As a kid in Elmira, NY. I would watch the daily episodes religiously. Moe was my mentor, Curly my idol, Larry my moderator.
|The originals! L-R Larry Fine, Moe Howard & brother Curly Howard.|
I had misgivings when I heard this movie was in progress but after seeing the trailors, some of them have been disspelled. Diamontopoulos' Moe looks spot on. Sassos' Curley also. Hayes' Larry is great.
Supporting cast looks good too. Larry David as ..... Mother Mengele? Great name! And appropriate. If the trailers are any indication, it affirms my views about nuns growing up as a "good Catholic boy".Not a fan of nuns.
So, I'm going to take this in come April. Hopefully the movie lives up/down to its trailers.
