Catholic League Slams 'Three Stooges' for Kate Upton's Nun Bikini




Quote
The organization also criticizes the name of Larry David's character -- Sister Mary-Mengele, a riff on the infamous Nazi; Fox responds it's a broad comedy.

The Catholic League is in an uproar over the way nuns are depicted in Peter and Bobby Farrelly's redo of The Three Stooges, which 20th Century Fox opens Friday domestically.

In a terse statement issued Thursday, Catholic League president Bill Donohue takes issue with a "nun bikini" and large rosary worn by swimsuit model Kate Upton in the slapstick comedy as well as with Larry David's character.

David, like Upton, plays a nun in Three Stooges, and his character's name is Sister Mary-Mengele -- named after infamous Nazi Josef Mengele.

"In the 1950s, Hollywood generally avoided crude fare and was respectful of religion. Today it specializes in crudity and trashes Christianity, especially Catholicism," Donohue said. "Enter The Three Stooges. The movie is not just another remake: It is a cultural marker of sociological significance, and what it says about the way we've changed is not encouraging."

Fox disagreed that Three Stooges diverges from the original series. "The movie, in keeping with the spirit of the original TV show and its stars, is a broad, slapstick comedy," a Fox spokesperson said.

"As the Stooges have proved over time, laughter is a universal medicine. The nuns that Mr. Donohue alludes to, are in fact, caring, heroic characters in the movie, albeit within the framework of a very broad comedy," the spokesperson continued. "And as far as the nun attire, I think we did the audinece a favor by letting Kate Upton wear the nun-kini rather than Larry David -- it could have gone either way. We invite you to see the movie and decide for yourselves."

The Catholic League is the largest Catholic civil rights organization in the U.S.

Donohue also criticized comments made Wednesday night by David on TBS' Conan.

"He said to Conan O'Brien that dressing as a nun in the film makes it easy to understand why nuns are 'so mean,' " Donohue said. "He explains: 'You know, the outfits might have something to do with that. Forget about the fact that they never have sex. If you give me a chance of no sex or having to wear that outfit the rest of my life, I would definitely take the no sex.' "

Donohue's statement included the e-mail address of a top Fox executive.

NO HOT NUNS!!!

I didn't know Larry David was involved with this movie. That's a shame.

I found that funnier than the trailer, you'd think they'd have mellowed a little or at least worked out nobody cares if they're offended

I've taken dumps that were funnier than those trailers. I remember this one time when I was coming down off of mescaline and took a dump that looked exactly like Bob Hope. I turned around and saw that and I just laughed and laughed. I still have it, actually. Every once in a while, I'll take it out and look at it and just laugh.

While the very presence of Snookie is irritating, I found his laugh after poking her in the eyes FAR more irritating. He just surprised her a little, and he laughs like it's the funniest goddamn thing in the history of man!

Did they protest the nun in The Blues Brothers too, I wonder?

Anyway, she has her head covered, so she's still being humble before god. I don't see the problem.

The fact that anyone representing the Catholic church thinks they have a leg to stand on regarding morality is baffling to me, besides the fact that comedy is always offensive to someone because that's what comedy is.

I don't care one way or the other about the Three Stooges I just have a fear that if this movie is a hit it will start a trend of movies studios remaking classic comedy teams and next we will see new Marx Brothers or Jack Benny movies.

The Farrelly brothers already did a Marx Brothers movie.  It is hi-larious.  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103872/

Wont you please reconsider seeing the three stooges?  its funny I promise.

I didn't know they did Brain Donors.  It wasn't funny, but it was very Marx Brothers.  Probably why it wasn't very funny.

Is there a way to unlike a post?

The part about the Marx Brothers not being funny that is, I agree about Brain Donors.  That movie was a stinker.  Except that the Farrelly Brothers had nothing to do with Brain Donors.  It was the Zuckers and Pat Proft that were responsible for that train wreck.

As far as the Marx Brothers go, I would put Duck Soup up there with any other comedy you can name as far as being one of the most funniest movies ever.  Their other output is very hit and miss.

Ah yes, the classic comedy team of Jack Benny.  I loved them.
