This is barely a movie at all, mostly due to its structural similarities to SNL, but also because it acknowledges the fact that its own premises are inherently unfilmable.
| Original Score: 0/4
Unlike The Kentucky Fried Movie, the brilliant benchmark that came before it, Movie 43 beats already tired scatalogical humor to death before taking another piss on the remains. It's really that bad.
| Original Score: 2/10
The greatest waste of A-list talent since Garry Marshall made his last film.
| Original Score: 0.0/5
If testicles and poop... are enough for you, maybe "Movie 43" will be your cup of (*ulp*) tea.
| Original Score: 5/10
There's certainly some surprises that earn genuine laughs, but as a whole the film has the feel of a bunch of SNL sketches in an off year that air after Weekend Update.
| Original Score: 2.25/5
It just doesn't pay off the way it should, mainly because the gags are built on cheap laughs and the shock value of seeing famous people get dirty.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
As it turns out, watching actors who are otherwise likable, marketable and capable reduce themselves to this ridiculous pabulum isn't funny. It's depressing.
| Original Score: 0.5/10
If this is the future of film-making then basically we're all doomed.
| Original Score: 1/5
A punishing exercise in brain cell annihilation that shoots for edgy but mostly settles for inane petulance.
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.
Be afraid. Be very afraid.
| Original Score: 0/5
Well, they didn't name it after the number of big laughs in it.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
This is nothing more than a chance to watch many of your favourite stars embarrassing themselves like 13-year-olds high on illicit booze.
The very fact that all gave so willingly of their time and talent to feature in such a grotesque spectacle is sort of endearing.
Don't subject yourself to this crap ...
| Original Score: 0.5/4
A total mess but not without its genuinely funny moments, this Relativity release is one to store away in the how-did-this-ever-happen vault.
From the outtakes in the credits, it's obvious the stars are enjoying themselves. Too bad those laughs aren't contagious.
With so many famous people in one movie, you might have thought, 'Gee, how bad could it be?' The answer: Very, very bad.
"Movie 43" is the "Citizen Kane" of awful.
I was immediately overcome with a sudden rush of emotion: not amusement, anger or even mild irritation, but a profound and faintly tragic sense of pity.
