Movie 43 – Review

As one settles to watch Movie43, one has to pinch oneself to ask: are they watching a real movie or is the apparition of a Hollywood film making on screen debut?

Seeming to be the laboured effort of an inspiration gone horribly wrong , the sketch comedy anthology Movie43 may succeed in wringing laughs out of precocious ten year olds but for saner people it appears a horrid time-and-money-misspent pain in the neck.

Movie43 features some of the biggest names on the Hollywood firmament to pitch half demented story lines. Charlie Wessler [Dennis Quaid] an ostensibly mentally challenged Director pitches a script to Griffin Schreader [Greg Kinnear], a film Executive.

Some 13 unfunny stories through, Wessler  forces Schreader to listen to the remaining at gun point. [Wow what a tantalizing idea for new wanna-be-s!]

A precocious youngster with a dysfunctional upbringing may roll over with mirth at finding testicles of Davis [Hugh Jackman] hanging from his neck, or a girl starting her periods on a date with boys who get uncomfortable how to cope with the situation, or yet another girl offering her neck to boyfriend to “poop” on, but others may tut-tut and exit.

A mockery of editing further spoils the lazy sojourn of the flick.

Even names like Kate Winslet, Hugh Jackman, Naomi Watts, Richard Gere leave the viewer cold.

Baring the cartoon cat pissing on Eliza Bank scene that lifts the mouth corners, all else appears more harrowing than comic.

The different version of the film released in some other countries – that show a group of boys furtively searching for the most banned movies – is no better either.

If the future of Hollywood is going to contain more such bizarre and graceless mounds of crap, heaven help!
