Everywhere I looked on the internet involving Movie 43 so far has been filled with hate, and several months ago, I saw a movie called Scary Movie 5 that was released the same year as this one and got more or less the same reaction, but I actually enjoyed and laughed at it enough to recommend, so I was curious if I would get the same feel. Anyway, the official movie apparently starred Dennis Quaid in the title role hoping to pitch a movie to a company that's sort of knowingly bad and we get to watch this movie unfold as the story progresses, and eventually leads to guns to get the film made. In the version I saw (that I think may be an improvement) in the evening two friends are making a YouTube video about another way to hit a dart into a board and they get pranked because of a duplication of YouTube (which is actually View This Tube) and Google (Zwoogle). And this View This Tube looked so old that I thought that was Jimmy Bennett and I thought this was filmed in like, 2006. I already knew he was starring in this movie as well, and a lot of the sketches were filmed over time, and it turned out he wasn't, but oh well. Anyway, soon the two friends and a little genius are surfing the internet under some of the most restricted sites ever and bring the pieces together to find the most sexy and outrageous movie ever made: Movie 43. And it goes farther than I thought.
The first sketch stars the stars of Flushed Away and tawdrily shows off these...well, I don't even know, and then goes to an unfunny but sexual spoof about school, and then a weird Anna Faris and Chris Pratt thing. I think that if you watch this movie, you have to know what you're in for: a knowingly bad movie that tries to be funny a few times and I admit, I enjoyed two or three of the sketches, the one that focuses the most on the plot being my favourite. Something tells me though, that if I saw the Dennis Quaid version, I would give this movie a lower grade, but for what I saw in between, I thought it was good. There is this situation involving the iBabe with horrible costumes and even worse acting but the commercial that may actually expose a full-on naked woman was not as terrible as I thought. And don't call me racist. In short, I just didn't hate it, and I thought this sketch with Halle Berry and truth or dare was alright. Nothing special but alright in a movie that I thought looked like more fun to make than to watch in almost every way. And I don't even know if it was fun to make, considering every actor got paid around eight hundred dollars and didn't know what they were in for when they signed the contract. I think the climax was the best part of the movie and then dragged itself back down.
Look, in my opinion, it seems that they tried, but it felt a lot like a live-action Family Guy episode yet even more rude and obnoxious. I guess I would recommend this movie for a ton of drunk people who need some time to lay down without actually laying down. For me I was just annoyed.
