Depraved, unfunny anthology comedy wastes tons of talent.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that Movie 43 is a collection of short but over-the-top comedy films (directed by the likes of Peter Farrelly) that are tied together with a wraparound sequence about a writer making a pitch at a Hollywood studio. The content is astoundingly vulgar, loaded with sex (including full-frontal female nudity) and sexual innuendo, depravity, the foulest language imaginable ("f--k," "s--t," and much more), some violence, and drinking and drug use. The film boasts an incredible cast of talented actors and a funny trailer, so teens will no doubt be interested in seeing it. But the situations are so depraved and of a negative nature that any and all potential viewers are hereby warned.

what families can talk about

  • Families can talk about Movie 43's sexual situations. Are there any relationships in the movie that could be defined as healthy or positive? What messages does the movie send about sex?
  • Some segments revolve around cruelty to children and teens. Are they funny? Why or why not? Who are they intended to appeal to?
  • In the final sequence, an animated cat is involved in some of the movie's most depraved humor. Does the fact that the cat isn't real affect the impact of those scenes?

"Movie 43" is the most cynical, bastardly, ashamedly horrible comedy to hit the big screen in years. This cast must have been paid a fortune to be a part of this dreadfully terrible "film?". The plot is literally about a writer pitching an idea about a series of short films, which don't even make any sense. And when a film makes you wonder is the film is even trying to break the illusion if it's a film, then you know film is at a new low. Never have I ever seen a worse comedy before, but my god will I be talking about it forever. The direction is sloppy, the comedy is not even present, the acting is ham-handed, and there is really no plot to the film. Honestly, this is a film that has to rely on random commercials popping up on the screen to reach it's 90 minute bloated running time. "Movie 43 is probably the biggest travesty I've seen in my life. It's not a movie. It's a bunch of actors having fun in front of the camera, creating the most disturbing film experience of all time!

Awful...Just Awful. One funny segment about halfway through. But generally you just sit there wondering how the hell they got all these people to be in this horrible, horrible movie.
