In theory, The Three Stooges‘ comedy should travel around the world remarkably well, as is the accepted wisdom about slapstick. It should also be fairly resistant to the passage of time, depending very little on any cultural context. As long as the human race slaps one another, as long as we have feuding siblings or groups of odd mismatched yet somehow complimentary groups of friends, there should be something in Stooges gags.
We can put at least one of those theories to the test with this new trailer for the Farrelly Brothers‘ Three Stooges movie, cut for international audiences.
