Washington Post

By Michael O'Sullivan
Movie 43 is a near masterpiece of tastelessness. The anthology of 12 short, interconnected skits elevates the art form of gross-out comedy...

Entertainment Weekly

At its best, Movie 43 resembles a risqué episode of Saturday Night Live - a comparison reinforced by the presence of both parody ads and...

The Guardian

By Peter Bradshaw
Movie 43 is sketchy, in every sense. It's a collection of short comedy films in the manner of the 70s cult classic "Kentucky Fried Movie,"...

Movie Nation

By Roger Moore
About a third of the short films land a few laughs. But even the weakest material is lifted by the actors.

Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
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...

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...

Despite the filmmakers' desperate attempts to scandalize us, the only real shock is that a movie this disastrous ever managed to get made.

Chicago Sun-Times

There's camp-fun bad and interestingly horrible bad, and then there's just awful. Movie 43 is the "Citizen Kane" of awful.

If you mashed-up the worst parts of the infamous "Howard the Duck,'' "Gigli,'' "Ishtar'' and every other awful movie I've seen since I...

Salute your Shorts!

By MedRed
Movie 43 is the result of actors and actresses getting together to have fun without caring what the critics think. This movie has no redeeming value other than just being fun! Crass, rude,raunchy,...

Hilarious if you're in the right frame of mind

By pitchfixer
Movie 43 scores huge laughs by showing situations that are improbable and, okay, tasteless. But it does so really well, with an all-star crew of actors. It's definitely not a movie for the...

I loved it!

By cassidy.roberts
I thought this movie was incredibly funny, very unexpected, and offensively clever. You must have a raunchy sense of humor, and love jokes and actions that are offensive to pretty much everyone at...

Movie 43 Review

By Stainless
Unfortunately the funniest parts were already in the movie trailers. I would say watch it if you like raunchy comedy; which I do, but wait for it to come out on video....


By vjason
First time I've ever left before the end of a movie..... I have no problem with raunchy movies, but this was just bad. If SNL had no limits, it would be this movie (a collection of 5-10 minute...

Don't Bother Seeing This Move

Just got back from watching part of "Movie 43", and I cannot warn people strongly enough to stay away from this steaming pile. We left after 15 minutes, which was 14 minutes and 30 seconds longer...

A few chuckles

By dgeubank
This movie had a few chuckles throughout, but overall, it was pretty crass. I was not aware that it was a series of short movies within a movie. That was OK, but some of the skits fell flat. As for...

By r342f2f

By Philly1018
I left after 35 minutes. I spent $11 which I can work after school and get back. I can't get back time. I chose to spend the rest of the time I would have wasted in that movie at home watching tv....

Movie 43

By joeliz
