The directorial duo that brought us such masterpieces as “There’s Something About Mary” and “Dumb and Dumber” has turned to the famous Jewish trio of film comedy: The Three Stooges.
The Farrelly brothers have brought the Stooges — Moe, Larry, Curly (and later Shemp) — into the modern era, complete with references to iPhones and “Jersey Shore” (Snooki has a cameo). Their comedic sensibilities, however, remain firmly planted in the 40s. Cue the slaps and bonks. I suppose it would’ve been anachronistic for the Farrellys to have the Stooges putting semen in a woman’s hair.
Though none of the Stooges are played by Jews this time around, there is one very notable Jew in a supporting role: Larry David.
