One of the first comedies of 2013 turns out to be a rare masterpiece. The film Movie 43 is a saturated volume of social commentary that pushes philosophical boundaries and sheds light on the more complex aspects of American culture. The film provides heart-pounding intensity thanks to the unsurpassed ensemble cast. In the segment “Truth or Dare”, Stephen Merchant and Halle Berry redefine romance in a way that will be mimicked and remembered for generations. Chris Pratt and Anna Faris give us an exposé on the many ways of expressing love in the segment “The Proposition”. Yet even aside from what are sure to be Oscar worthy performances by Hugh Jackman and Richard Gere, so much of the life-changing force comes from Peter Farrelly’s direction of “The Pitch”, “The Catch”, and “Truth or Dare”. I must also give special attention to the directing finesse of Jonathan van Tulleken in “Machine Kids” which was obvious yet gentle symbolism for the futility of anger.

If movie theaters would measure assistance in miles, I would be over a million. So, let me tell you that this is the NUMBER 1. The worst movie I have ever seen. I am still trying to figure it out if this is a joke or is it a market research, where producers are trying to show that putting together well known actors in a terrible movie, the theaters will still sell a lot and they will make high profits of it. So, please, if you have nothing better to do, just turn on your TV or go to watch a bad movie, which I am sure will be better that this piece of crap, and forgive my French. Good luck!

Disgusting, lower order, 9 year old boy humor. I don't know how they got those stars to participate in that level of putrid ****.
We walked out and would like our money back.

Twisted, sick, hilarious. Definitely for adults. l loved how everyone played their parts. If you liked the Aristocrats, you might like Move 43. Hugh Jackman's character will be an inspiration for Halloween parties.
And stay for the credits.

Movie 43 was funny... really funny in parts, so funny in fact that at one point I spit a raisinette across the theater. This movie is like a series of SNL shorts that went so over the top they had to move them to the big screen. Just like SNL shorts, they are either a hit or a miss and their accuracy really depends on your type of humor. Very cleaver and interesting concept, not sure how it actually got pitched and made it to film, but I think overall the experiment will last as a cult hit.
