Yes it’s a family movie and a good one!
This movie made my daughter (7) laugh so much .. it made me laugh too just through her at first. Later I found myself remembering some of the scenes and laughing to myself. The slapstick and silliness appeal to the child in everyone. Yes, I grew up loving the Three Stooges shorts and Short uses their antics in no short supply. From the opening scenes Murrey shows us what kind on stooge he really is and it just develops from there as the film moves through it’s plot. It’s not a bad plot as family movies go. Kathleen Turner puts in a wicked performance as a villainous witch. The special effects are good and used in a way that compliments the funniness of the scenes and aren’t just there to dazzle or put there arbitrarily. I saw a comment on another Short movie that fits the bill here too. I’m going to change it while keeping the spirit of it intact. If you don’t get the meaning of slapstick humor then (there’s nothing to get just …let it happen) go rent a George Carlin standup video instead. There’s some very funny scenes here and a decent plot so I’ll rate this family comedy for what it is at a solid 7 stars.
