Chicago Sun-Times - 04/11/2012
"The Farrelly Brothers have made probably the best THREE STOOGES movie it's possible to make in 2012....THE THREE STOOGES has the look and feel of a Stooges classic and possibly some of the same gags."
Los Angeles Times - 04/13/2012
"Starring Sean Hayes, Will Sasso and Chris Diamantopoulos as Larry, Curly and Moe, this affectionate update is a love letter to the Stooges from the filmmaking Farrelly brothers, Peter and Bobby."
USA Today - 04/13/2012
"Pop culture references intermingle with the loopy trio's iconic foolishness, and the result is a movie with some big laughs, plenty of heart and terrible coifs."
Box Office - 04/12/2012 3 stars out of 5 -- "Peter and Bobby Farrelly have done right by comedy icons The Three Stooges with a film -- contemporary in tone, but retro in spirit -- that actually feels like something the original Stooges might have made themselves, if they were alive and in their prime circa 2012..."
New York Times - 04/13/2012
"[A] thoroughly enjoyable paean to Moe, Larry and Curly and the art of the eye poke....It's a perfect fit for the Farrellys..."
Movieline - 04/12/2012
"[I]t is possibly brilliant, a picture that goes beyond homage to become its own rambunctious invention -- it's one big eye-poke, with footnotes."
Entertainment Weekly - 05/04/2012
"A startlingly fun and ingenious act of nuthouse re-creation....The setting lends a fresh, hip vitality to the Stooges' antics..." -- Grade: A-
Sight and Sound - 09/01/2012
"[T]he STOOGES film turns out to be the rare resurrected 'property' whose performers live up to the skills and appeal of their predecessors."
