Movie 43 (2013)



Average Rating: 2.3/10

Fresh: 3 | Rotten: 73

A star-studded turkey, Movie 43 is loaded with gleefully offensive and often scatological gags, but it's largely bereft of laughs.

Movie Info

From the twisted minds of producers Peter Farrelly (Hall Pass, Shallow Hal) and Charles Wessler (There's Something About Mary, Dumb & Dumber), comes Movie 43-- the outrageous new ensemble comedy starring some of the biggest names in Hollywood. Movie 43 is not for the easily-offended and contains jaw-dropping, sometimes shockingly disturbing, but always entertaining intertwined storylines you'll have to see to believe. (c) Official Site

Despite all the gross-out humor, the most offensive thing about this is the lazy filmmaking; every shot feels like a first take, and the haphazard editing precludes any comic timing.

As a film critic, I've seen nearly 4,000 movies over the last fifteen years. Right now, I can't think of one worse than Movie 43.

How many directors does it take to screw in a star-studded piece of aggressive stupidity and call it a movie? An even dozen, and there is no punch line.

The line between gross-out humor that's inspired and the kind that's witless is fine indeed, and "Movie 43" obliterates it with poop and movie stars.

The greatest waste of A-list talent since Garry Marshall made his last film.

It's got some clever sketches, though to really enjoy them, one must have the sense of humor of a 12-year-old boy. Fortunately, I do.

It feels like somebody strung together some of the worst SNL skits and called it a film.

An execrable waste cooked up by a hell's kitchen of directors and writers. It's death-of-laughter by committee. Its title? Because it's like one of those many asteroids out there--a dismal chunk of rock hurtling through an empty void, without purpose.

To fully enjoy yourself from start to finish, it will help if you've got the sense of humor of a middle-school-aged sociopath... For the rest of you, I suggest eventually watching it on your phone.

Absolutely disgusting, nauseating, misogynistic, racist, cruel, void of any common sense...

It's a full-scale disaster, a misfire of megalithic proportions that somehow managed to snare an A-list cast...The reviews have been so relentlessly acidic that it could acquire a so-bad-it's-fun mystique that turns it into a cult film.

February 15, 2013 Full Review Source: 3AW

The very fact that all gave so willingly of their time and talent to feature in such a grotesque spectacle is sort of endearing.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

It rather boggles the mind how so many micromanaging handlers allowed their A-list talent to participate in a production that looks funded from a frat-house's loose-couch-change collection.

If you're interested in seeing Oscar winners, Tony winners, and a bunch of genuinely talented people act out the raunchiest, most inappropriate material you're likely to see this year, Movie 43 fits the bill.

Misconceived rag bag of potty-brained skits starring gullible big names including Kate Winslet, Richard Gere and Gerard Butler.

Audience Reviews for Movie 43

It's hard to believe that so many first-rate stars could be involved in such a distasteful compilation of bad taste stories, which are so exceedingly gross and offensive that only a very few are actually original and funny. (There are two versions available, both equally terrible).

Awful, not funny, awful and awful

So I was pretty intrigued by how many bad reviews and great actors this film had, as well as the fact that I'd never heard about it. With good reason. It's really all over the place and so offensive that the true intrigue of it all is how they got these actors to do this in the first place. I mean, I did laugh in the first two skits: the Winslet/Jackman balls one and Home-schooled one. Even those were pretty out there and the rest... well it's watchable; just be prepared to face-palm your way into this movie.

Ridiculous and uncomfortable with some laugh-out-loud moments. My favorite is the Robin speed-dating sketch.
