I don't get the one stars. This is a pretty perfect intersection of terrible wrestling with terrible pop culture.
Are you all just scared to admit that your 12-year-old selves would have eaten this shit up? We're all friends here. Be honest, and no harm will come to thee.
Funny you should ask.
When I was 12 I hated wrestling, and everyone who liked it, with a passion. Seriously, I'd even tell WWF (now WWE) fans that they were huge faggots for liking it and wanting to see sweaty muscle men in speedos grope each other. I had people threaten to beat me up over it at school even. It proved amusing to me and my other self-righteous 12 year old friends.
Now I realize that was silly and a product of me being a 12 year old. Now I don't care about wrestling, and whether people like it or not doesn't affect my judgment of them as a person.
tl;dr, this sucks.
I wish I could wipe away all my dumb nostalgia and rationally determine whether this was worse than the Gillberg arc.
Kane, however, remains just as dumb and shitty as he always was.

This is a hilarious clip when you consider that Will Sasso seemed like he was going to be the next big comedy star. He was the best actor MadTV had during his tenure there and he was sort of like their version of John Belushi. Well, in terms of having breakaway talent and popularity but without the drugs and being resposnsible for "Neighbors." He left the show to further his career but never managed to get more than supporting roles in Christopher Guest movies.
Now he's a part of trying to ressurect a moldy franchise and having to shill it in front of disinterested wrestling fans booing him. He couldn't even pop the crowd when he mentioned the town's name.
But he still does a damn good Curly.

To be fair, Sasso also pulled a Hulk Hogan impersonation. That's pretty much shorthand for "TAKE A BATHROOM BREAK HERE; WWE COMEDY."
This isn't Sasso's first time in the ring.
I could have sworn it was already up there. I just submitted it since you didn't have the Hart to do it.
A few years ago, the NEW YORKER had an article about the Farrelly Brothers' plans for a Three Stooges movie. It was described as a series of interlocked short films, formatted like the original Stooges shorts (intro credits and all) and would carry their real-life bios as a subtext in each "help the pretty mol and her younger brother fight the bankers" story.
It was going to describe Curly's ignominious post-stroke spiral.
It sounded really good, certainly more than I'd have expected from a Three Stooges movie made in the 2010s.
This, however, is pretty much what I would have expected.
Larry is grotesque.
He's like some wacky cross between Art Garfunkel and Garry Shandling, only not that great!
Two rock bottom forms of entertainment colliding in a weird dimension of shit.
A shit-dimension, Randy.
I didn't notice any anime in the clip.
I liked the part where the red guy grabbed the fat guy's neck.
I figure something this stupid probably deserves 5 stars, but I just can't bring myself to do it.
Just too terrible, really.
uh...didn't they say the same thing about Suburban Commando and Mr. Nanny?
