Movie 43 (2013)



Critic Consensus: 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.

It is utterly disgusting throughout.

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.

"Movie 43" is the "Citizen Kane" of awful.

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.
