The Three Stooges
Blu-ray Book ($39.99)

A fresh trio of nyuk-nyuk-nyuk-nuckleheads (Chris Diamantopoulos from TV’s “24,” Will Sasso of “Mad TV” fame and Sean Hayes from “Will & Grace”) brings the iconic slapstick of Moe, Larry and Curly to new life in this contemporary twist on the trio’s manic comedic mayhem. Directed with just the right orchestration of eye-poking, head-knocking aplomb by the Farrelly Brothers (noted for the their trademark lack of subtlety in “There’s Something About Mary” and “Dumb And Dumber”), it’s packed with supporting performances from Larry David, Jane Lynch, Sofia Vergara, Jennifer Hudson and supermodel Kate Upton. Bonus features include a history of the Stooges, a look at the making of the movie, the sound effects behind the slapstick, and the actors’ original screen tests for their roles.
