SUMMARY OF THOUGHTS: Movie 43 is not only unfunny and offensive for the most part, but it also wastes a lot of talent.
- Christian Becker:
It’s stupid, vulgar and low-brow to the max. But I don’t deny the laughs I had watching most of these big-time actors mix it up with the material. Some shorts are great, others are so-so and some are just plain terrible, making for a mixed comedy experience.
- Chad Gleason (MovieManCHAD):
The beginning and the end were hilarious. The middle was more miss than hit.
- Leah Hather:
A 90-minute sketch show that is hit and miss. The beginning and end have the best moments due to the actors.
- Daniel Rester:
Movie 43 occasionally made me chuckle (especially with the scene that had Terrence Howard), but it is mostly dull, unmemorable, and offensive. The most disappointing thing about it is that it wastes so much good talent. Just…blah.
- Christian Ruvalcaba:
A sloppy ensemble put together to forge a comedy that just isn’t funny. Though maybe the tiny boppers will enjoy the film, the rest will see it as a joke that just doesn’t work.
- Eric Striffler (Pretty Much It):
Just insulting to society.
