Juicin' it: Halle Berry plays around with a turkey baster. Berry is one of many stars who can be seen in the film in theaters now.
Movie 43 has an extensive cast (Emma Stone, Johnny Knoxville, Terrance Howard and Halle Bery) that would automatically spark interest, and it did.
With just commercials alone it looked hilarious.
In the movie, Dennis Quaid is a failed star who is trying to unsuccessfully pitch a movie idea to a studio executive, Greg Kinnear. The movie being pitched is just a number of shorts that would either make you laugh out loud or confuse you on a whole different level.
Quaid's character tries his hardest to turn down the idea based on the ridiculous content, even after being held at gun point.
The shorts are filled with crude humor and insanely bizarre skits that dance around the very thin line of funny and offensive.
The cringe worthy moments ranged from genitalia on a mans neck, to a cartoon cat expressing a sexual attraction to his owner.
In contrast, some induced laughs came from Emma Stone's passionate confession via intercom system. To her assumed ex-lover played by, Kieran Culkin. That involved a love-hate relationship that was a definite amusing scene.
Also a depiction of Snooki reading "Moby Dick" as a very accurate form of torture.
Lastly, the scene that deserved an "LOL" would be having a glimpse at Halley Berry with extensive plastic surgery, done in her lips cheeks and breasts.
Besides the very small handpicked scenes, the movie overall fell flat. The humor was not tasteful and some material would have been better if it were more subtle. The funny moments did not weigh out the bizarre moments.
You might want to pass on Movie 43 and instead you might want to catch up on some Family Guy or South Park on Netflix. At least that'll guarantee a laugh.
2 out of 4 stars.
