A lot of good actors are in this movie and they was not good. This is by far the worst movie of 2013, I mean the jokes was not funny at all and it's just a crapper movie.

Ease up guys it was a goofy funny movie. So it wasnt as good as DR Zhivago or Schindlers list. It was a sick comedy.3 Stars

The real sin of Movie 43 is not that it's ridiculously unfunny, but that it completely wastes the talents possessed by all of the major stars involved. About 95% of the film's comedic attempts miss the mark. I laughed here and there, mostly at the skit with Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber. But "here and there" doesn't justify 97 minutes of a film that is labeled a comedy.

Everybody is speaking about the "WTF"-level this movie has.
Yep, I had that too after a while : "What The Fuck" am I actually watching ....
The fact that such a star cast joins this is twofold (I think):
1. They probably are paid a disgusting lot of money for their momentary cooperation
2. If completely unknown nobodies would be in this movie, it wouldn't even get in the cinema. In other words the marketing department knew what it was doing.
If it was the intention to bring anarchic absurd humor on the screen, than this wasn't a real big succes. "The Young Ones" is pure anarchism and "Monty Python" is an epitome of absurdity. This was just a cocktail of vulgar poop and pee humor, laced with sexual trivia. From Halle Berry's bloated hooters to the testicles on Hugh Jackman's …

Believe me when I say that I do NOT want to talk about something that has a moral and comedic stature of a stain of excrement on the wall. But, I'm going to do it anyway.
Movie 43 is what you get when a bunch of talented people get together and have a brain malfunction.
The wonders of the universe used to be on my mind. I used to think about why oxygen existed, or human life for that matter. Now, I think about how this atrocity of a film could have ever been made.
This 'movie' has not a single redeeming feature. Everyone in this film gave their weakest effort, everyone. And it simply pains me to know that good actors actually took part in something as offensive, annoying, deceiving and morally wrong as Movie 43, the (I quote Richard Roeper) 'Citizen Kane of awful'.
I know a lot …

An insane writer pitching crazy movie plots to a producer with big stars on his mind.
I knew from the very start of this film, very few audience would appreciate this one. I am one of those who always see the good on crappy movies. At first, I had really bad time digesting everything and checking what this movie offered good to its goers. The story segments were really really offensive, unbelievable and... whatever. Watching the trailer again before doing this review, I felt like I haven't seen the real picture. I THINK, it is about the reality. The reality that we do have these kinds of movies that are story-wise crappy, only have the famous and BIG STARS of the Hollywood. AND... like that! I'm not really sure if I am actually getting it right.
I always love the idea of …

It has been getting terrible reviews - in the realm of "worst movie I have seen" quality. I think the biggest hit against it is that the sketches are vulgar, gross, crass and just not all that funny (by most accounts - I have yet to see it myself). Just because there is talent involved doesn't mean it's any good - though I could see this attain a certain cult status considering how bad so many people say it is.

Based off the trailor, i have no idea what this movie is about, it looks like it will be a fail it has a star studded cast but often some of those movies flop i just checked on rottentomatoes and its rating was 4% which is terrible Ill wait till it comes to dvd before i take a shot at it because it just looks dull so we'll see hopefully im wrong, not many good comedies have came out lately

Hope it's just cleverly written to make it worth while.

Chalk this one up in the failed category. Comedy variety is hard to pull off and apparently going for the gross-out factor isn't a ticket to success. Now one has to wonder how many people involved are going to list this on the low point of their careers.
