The Farrelly brothers' homage to the slapstick comedy trio who made countless comedy shorts in the old days of Hollywood is goofy in the extreme.
The pre-nursery humour hinges on physical slapstick: pokes in the eye, twisted noses and ears, gluttony and jokes about bodily functions.
Occasionally, for instance when Larry, Curly and Moe have a waterfight with peeing babies, the effect is very funny indeed. A lot of the time, the storytelling is crude and witless.
You have to given a certain credit to the three leads for their sheer physical commitment.Reuse content
