  • Seems interesting - kind of - but it also might be over analyzing things too much.

    At Amazon and from the publisher, it's 35.00 and it's a paperback. No thank you. Maybe at 50-60% less.

  • Hmmm....as a psychology major, it would be interesting, but as a Stooge fan, I'd probably be bored to tears by reading about id, ego, etc., and other psychological "stuff" in Stooge films.  Hey, I watch them to laugh--if I wanted to analyse something, I'd analyse the Simpsons or Family Guy or something.

    And of course, as most "analytical" books, they're waaay overpriced.  I wouldn't be surprised if I saw it as supplemental reading in a psychology course somewhere.

    Moe: I know! Let’s cremate him!
    Larry: Can’t do that--we ain’t got no cream!

  • Has anyone bought this book?

    Just curious, it's still 35 dollars on Amazon. The price is still a bit high for me
    at the moment but I'll probably get this eventually.

    Moe: Brilliant, what’ll it be?
    Larry: Open The Door!
