Movie Reviews

Sweet and Concise
Stephen Cox | 04/14/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This 1 hour biography did in one hour what the TV movie couldn't do in two, tell the complete story. It shows the stooges brilliance while at the same time showing the hardships they faced. There was one innacuracy, Curly's birthday, which is October 22, not October 27, but that's okay. The important thing is that showed everything they needed to. Although Shemp's stroke in 1952 is omitted, it is only because that was not a confirmed fact when this film was made, so again, quite alright. This film is touching, as many non-stooge fans really find out that the six men who acted so goofy on film, were in truth kind-hearted men, all with families. Very well done."
I Never really knew the Stooges until I saw this video

"If you are a Three Stooges fan, you must get this video. Very little was ever said about the Stooges as "human beings." This Biography reveals the stooges to be not only excellent entertainers, but REAL human beings with flaws and weaknesses. Now i finally know who were the original stooges. Do you? (One fact is old in this video. Curly-Joe died a few years ago. None of the stooges are still alive.)"

"Who can ever forget these marvelous clowns who kept your eyes glued to the tv laughing at their antics? Their poke in the eyes, slaps on the face and other wild gimmicks were imitated by those children who watched these numbskulls. Mo, Larry, Curly,Curly Joe, and Shemp were far more than silly entertainers. They were disciplined comedians whose art transformed the comedy of their time. They were also family men, businessmen and shared all the foibles of all men. Biography does a superb job in chronicling the careers of this group but also allows us to look into their personal lives. You will finc humor, goodwill and sadness in this bunch. Enjoy the Stooges!"
Top Notch Addition to any Stooge Collection

"I was impressed with the quality in this DVD presentation. This documentary succeeds in many ways and preserves for all time some integral interviews of those who knew the Stooges. Some of the rare photography (including much from the Larry Fine family) was amazing, to say the least, and the DVD is well worth the purchase. It's much better than any previous or current documentaries on the comedy team or Ted Healy. The radio interviews with the Stooges add a nice touch as supplemental materials."
