HOLLYWOOD, Calif.—A porn parody of The Three Stooges is ruffling feathers nationwide as the movie trailer for Not the Three Stooges XXX has been temporarily put on hold by director Will Ryder's attorneys.
“I’ve never seen anything like this before in my eleven years in the adult entertainment business,” director Will Ryder said, referring to a war-of-words between his legal advisors and the company that owns the licensing rights for the actual Three Stooges.
While the trailer remains under lock-and-key, Will Ryder Productions has continued with the business of releasing the parody movie via Pulse Distribution today.
"Will's conceptualization of The Three Stooges is dead on and without question falls within the definition of what a true parody is and should be,” Ryder's attorney Michael Fattorosi said. “James Bartholet nails Curly and thankfully nothing else in this movie but for now the trailer is off limits for public viewing.”
The legal battle between Ryder and C3 Entertainment, which owns the licensing rights to the real Three Stooges, has attracted the mainstream press. Both the Hollywood Reporter and TMZ.com featured contentious split.
“This entire situation is quite exciting”, said Robert Plarksi, the executive vice president of sales at Pulse Distribution, the movie's distributor. “We knew it would be a hot topic of conversation but to see it on shows like TMZ and talked about in such an unlikely place as the Hollywood Reporter is amazing but I really wish I had that movie trailer right now to show my customers online but the orders are coming in pretty darn good.”
In true parody fashion, the storyline harkens back to the days of the Columbia Pictures famous shorts that played in movie theaters back in the late 1930s. The boys are unemployed so their girlfriends refuse to have sex with them until they find jobs. Desperately horny, they try anything to find work and end up in wild sexual situations with gorgeous girls.
Not the Three Stooges XXX stars Mandy Armani, Danica Dillon, Bailey Blue, Callie Cyprus, Cassandra Cruz and Britney Young; with Anthony Rosano plays Moe, James Bartholet as Curly and Evan Stone as Larry. Dick Chibbles is the cop, Thomas Ward the black butler, Chad Diamond the estate owner, Eric Swiss the art professor, and Chris Charming playing the hair stylist.
