PCP on DVD - Movie 43
Awhile back I made my list of the worst film’s I’ve ever seen (link here). If I were to update that list, I’d have a new #1 worst movie ever.
Movie 43 – 2013, rated R. My rating: 1 out of 10.
Movie 43 is the warped brainchild of a guy who I usually like in comedy, Peter Farrelly. Here, the film is attempting to be a sketch comedy film, like Kentucky Fried Movie, except despite a ridiculous amount of talent involved, is not funny at all. Substituting gross-out gags for any sort of witty writing does not make for a funny movie, not even remotely. The only reason I bothered to see this film is the huge cast of actors I admire, including Halle Berry, Hugh Jackman, Greg Kinnear, Naomi Watts, Elizabeth Banks, Emma Stone, Kate Winslet, and oh so many more. This movie can easily be listed on their resume’s as the worst film they were ever involved in. Seriously, check out the cast for this film on IMDB here. Or just look at the poster to the right.
I have no idea what the cast was thinking, agreeing to be in this movie. In the final Saturday Night Live this past season, host Ben Affleck joked in a sketch that he always wanted to be involved with a movie worse than Gigli. Too bad he wasn’t in this, he’d have his wish. That line of thought could explain why Halle Berry was in this, to replace Catwoman as her worst film. Otherwise, maybe Farrelly has some major blackmail dirt on each of them. All I know is that the only thing this movie is good for is the movie trivia game Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon thanks to the huge cast. Otherwise, this hour and a half abomination of a film should never be watched by anyone ever again. Seriously, if you never saw this, don’t go see it. Trust me. Or, if you don't believe me, check out Richard Roeper's brutal review of this film here: (link) But whatever you do, don't watch this movie!
