They look like Moe, Curly and Wallace Shawn.

Ah, some of the best bits of one of my favorite Stooges shorts, Nuns With Knockers.

Aw, c'mon -- any movie in which Snooki gets an eyepoke from Moe can't be all bad . . .

Looks okay, although Curly is scarily large.

I am kind of aware that "Snooki" is some sort of TV star, but don't know who she is. Is that really her in the movie? Hmm.

I gotta say that trailer brought back fond memories of watching the Stooges on Saturday mornings. I'm looking forward to it. (yeah, I know I'll be disappointed)

The nun at the beginning, believe it or not, is Larry David sans glasses. You'd never know it unless you looked at imdb. Jane Lynch is also in the trailer, though putting big stars in nun's habits where they are all but unrecognizable would seem to be a knuckleheaded move.

Yeah, same here I'm afraid. The "Moe" is eerily good, the "Larry" is not too shabby either, but neither will counterbalance the awfulness of the "Curly." Being Catholic, I'm already appalled and disgusted, which is probably a good thing, but that's just part and parcel to my real objection: the need for that "edginess" that masquerades as "cool" in the 21st century. Maybe if this had been set in the 1930's, it'd be more... intriguing? But no. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if the three of them do a hip-hop rap number over the closing credits.

I saw this and it wasn't quite as horrible as I expected it to be. Gailaird actually did a pretty good Oliver Hardy. The other guy was ok. The story and direction and everything else was just bad. Really bad.

I have seen all the Columbia Stooges shorts and I don't remember ever seeing a Nun in any of them. I guess the trailer did make me think haha

TOP TEN SAVING GRACES OF THE UPCOMING "THE THREE STOOGES" MOVIE

10. Two words: "Sofia" and "Vergara"

9. It'll only be two reels long, right?

8. The third Stooge isn't Joe Besser

7. You can distract yourself trying to decide if that guy's trying to look like Moe or Bruce Glover

6. We can look forward to humourless church officials hilariously denouncing the movie for its politically incorrect depiction of nuns (and Stooges, for that matter)

5. They're using the slogan "Just Say Moe," but not "Legalize Shemp"

4. Mercifully few people are using the word "reboot"

3. Moe's probably not going to dress up as Hitler and clobber Japanese spies

2. "Sister Bernice" is the hottest nun since Stella Stevens

1. It's not "THE RITZ BROTHERS"

It's no small achievement to be simultaneously the feel-good movie of the year and a more violent picture than THE GODFATHER. Notice it's basically got the same plot as THE BLUES BROTHERS...? :D

"Oh? Wise guy!"

I found much to admire with this movie actually. The Farrelly Brothers did not go for the wall-to-wall toilet humour I was dreading, and the whole movie could easily have been filmed by the real Stooges back in the day. The three leads were astonishingly spot-on. They've obviously worked hard to get the mannerisms down pat and letter-perfect. Thank goodness they didn't go with the stupid stunt casting that was being bandied about for so long, that would have proven fatally distracting. Turns out it's still true that all you need to be funny is to have your comics plunge from great heights, smash resoundingly into the ground as limp dummies, then get up completely unhurt and just looking annoyed and indignant about having fallen from a building in the first place. The Farrellys were saavy enough to recognize they shouldn't make the film 100% mindless mayhem and even included some touches that make you care about the comics (shades of Irving Thalberg!) and give the film some heart. They even show up in person at the end with rubber props to briefly demonstrate, in a nutshell, "Kids-don't-try-this-at-home." This is the first movie I recall seeing in a long time that seemed to care about my children's well-being!

Biggest surprise: there's no attempt at a pie fight! :)

Well, that's something. When the New Yorker spoke to the Farrelly Bros about the project in 2004, "wall to wall toilet humour" seemed to be the plan.

Those aren't the real Farrellys, so it too qualifies as a gag. (No actual names so I won't spoil it more.)
