The rest of the month may be comprised of releases desperate to avoid "The Avengers" and the onslaught of summer blockbusters. But few studios thought that their movies would become the meat in an "Avengers"-"The Hunger Games" blockbuster sandwich, as the Lionsgate beast held remarkably steady in week four, suggesting that $400 million domestic may be in play after the film already crossed $500 million worldwide.

Happy Friday the 13th everyone! Jason is putting on the hockey mask and black cats everywhere are doing wind sprints to make sure they won’t miss you when you walk past. Not sure how to beat all the bad luck? Try going to the movies (and leaving your umbrella at home)! Toads and goldfish aren’t allowed in theaters and there are no mirrors to break or cracks in the floor to step on. Plus, the horror, thriller, romantic comedy, and documentary films coming out this weekend should provide great distraction. But be sure to bring some salt with you. Just in case.

Review: 'The Three Stooges' A Limp Homage To A Legendary Comedy Trio

There doesn't seem to be a single pressing reason for the Farrelly Brothers to have made a Three Stooges-less movie titled "The Three Stooges." Bobby and Peter Farrelly's love of the Stooges is well-known, but they should have left well enough alone after "Dumb and Dumber," a superior and certainly easier to swallow Stooges homage. For starters, the three comedians in the Farrellys' new and more direct tribute's title roles just don't have any comedic chemistry. Geographically, the Farrellys' trio may be close-knit but beyond that, there's nothing to suggest that Sean Hayes, Will Sasso and Chris Diamantopoulos are an organically united group. It should be noted that there's also nothing categorically wrong with the Farrellys reusing their idols' routines. But if the actors playing the Stooges can't form a good, cohesive troupe of comedians, resurrecting Moe, Larry and Curly is pointless.

At this juncture, it's probably best to cease judging promotional content from the Farrelly Brothers' “The Three Stooges” as something from a legitimate feature, and instead to look at the six clips released as simply an avant-garde film series. Picture Steve McQueen trying his hand at comedy, and you'll get a better grasp on the shocking lack of laughs on show.

It's pretty clear now that Fox has no fucking clue what to do with "The Three Stooges," the passion project by the Farrelly Brothers. The tone certainly suggests a movie for kids, and the studio reached out for middle America by having Larry, Curly and Moe do some shenanigans at the Daytona 500. But now they're making a late reach for teens with a spot that riffs on "Jackass," but it still delivers zero laughs.

Is this the year that directorial passion projects get kicked in the junk? Andrew Stanton is already feeling the heat after his dream project "John Carter" opened to both dismal reviews and box office, and next month, another long in the works pet project will arrive on screens, and it too has dreadful pre-release buzz. Possibly even worse than "John Carter."

You can smell the fromage from here, and while many are already gleefully rubbing their hands together for "John Carter" to tank (we think it might underperform, but won't be the "Waterworld" disaster some are predicting) this writer thinks the true flop of the spring might just be "The Three Stooges." Boasting a cast of nobodies except for that one guy who used to be on "Will & Grace" and an antiquated sense of humor that clearly has not translated well to the big screen, Fox made a pitch to middle America this weekend that featured the three leading men and two boobs.

Well, for better or worse, the Farrelly Brothers have realized their dream and brought "The Three Stooges" into the modern age. And what does that mean? iPhone jokes and bigger boobs to leer at.

Are you ready to see a movie starring that guy from "Will & Grace" and two people you never heard of? Would it help if we told you it's based on slapstick comedy show your Dad grew up watching? While we'll ways been dreaming of what could've been with the Jim Carrey, Sean Penn and Benicio Del Toro incarnation, we're gonna have to live with Sean Hayes, Will Sasso and Chris Diamantopoulos as our "The Three Stooges." The dream project by the Farrelly Brothers has been in the works for a long time now, and expectations will be riding high, but we dunno, somehow even looking at this first picture of the trio from USA Today we're already bored.

As go the seasons, so goes "The Three Stooges." The Farrelly Brothers' re-awakening of the brand name has been through various permutations, gliding from Columbia to Warner Bros., to the ashes of MGM and finally, Fox. Every leading man under the sun has been rumored to play the eponymous goofballs, from the likes of Sean Penn and Jim Carrey to Larry David and Justin Timberlake and everybody in between. Finally, the release dates -- "The Three Stooges" originally earmarked dates in 2009 and 2011. Now, next April, the Stooges are back.
