Our review of Movie 43:
KRISTIAN: What the hell is “Movie 43”? That’s a tough question to answer even after seeing…though the better query might be “how the hell did this fartbox get all this talent”? The only logical explanation I can muster is that someone has dirt on each and every one of the 43 credible celebrities that star in the various shorts that make up this comedy. Some muster a few decent laugh (the Kate Winslet/Hugh Jackman and Batman/Robin sketches come to mind), but as the movie progresses you realize it’s just not going to pay off the way it should, mainly because the gags are built on cheap laughs and the shock value of seeing famous people get dirty. Unfortunately for “Movie 43”, it’s 2013, and we can just check all of these celebs real dirt with one click.
SCORE: 1.5/5 Schmoes
MARK: The hope with “Movie 43”, a new comedy that features a series of short vignettes, is that it could be related to “Kentucky Fried Movie”, the hilarious random spoof that launched the careers of the Zucker/Abrahams/Zucker production team (they would later go on to make such classics as “Airplane”, “Top Secret” and “The Naked Gun”). But in order to merit comparisons to classic comedies, the laughs have to hit hard and often…and each story in “Movie 43” relies too heavily on an initial gag and never figures out how to keep the momentum going. There’s certainly some surprises that earn genuine laughs, but as a whole the film has the feel of a bunch of SNL sketches in an off year that air after Weekend Update.
