Connor's Review of Movie 43
Oh sweet merciful lord where to begin with Movie 43? The film has such a talented cast at it's disposal and uses very few of them to their full advantage it's hard to review this film because really it is one gigantic mess bar and bar a few laughs here and there does nothing that viewers haven't already seen. Movie 43 and it's many sketches were directed by numerous people and stars a host of Hollywood A-listers including Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Chloe Moretz, Kate Winslet, Gerard Butler and countless others but all in all the majority of the stars come across as foolish rather than funny onstage and it is a wonder that any of them agreed to be in the film in the first place.
The plot opens with two teenage boys being pranked by one of the teenagers younger brother, the two elders decide to take revenge on the younger by stealing his computer and filling it with viruses so that he cannot prank them the duo tell them about the a film named Movie 43 and how it is top secret and only he has the brainpower to help them view it, one of the teenagers goes to the bathroom to watch adult films on the boys laptop to obtain viruses while the other stays with the kid who searches Movie 43 and from here we jump into a series of weird scenes that become the basis for the actual Movie 43.
Apart from one scene that features Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Chloe Moretz in an awfully cringeworthy but fantastically funny few minutes the film genuinely did not make me laugh out loud and seeing as it is a comedy I am viewing it as a major flop the gags are jokes that 10-12 year old boys will still find funny but apart from that I advise you to save your money as Movie 43 is a spectacular failure
