I really tried to give Movie 43 a chance, considering the cast list is amazing. But does a great cast save a movie that does not work at all ? No, this is embarrassing. Do i laugh at Hugh Jackman with balls on his face. No, because the comedy scenes are not funny, as they should have been. There are so many scenes here with different sketches, that you sit there wondering.....what the hell were all these directors thinking ? Just look here, there are sketches directed by Brett Ratner, Griffin Dunne, Peter Farrelly, and Steve Carr, directors who have made ( some ) good movies. And here they fuck up, totally. And when you think at least one of the sketches might be good, something goes wrong and you feel sick, that you have to watch all of this for 90 minutes. What is all these great actors doing here, are they so desperate to make money on this garbage ? I tried to give Movie 43 a chance, and see this with an open mind. But still i could not leave without thinking, this is shit. Kevin Sorbo, please come back and make another sequel to Walking Tall, so we don´t have to experience Movie 43 again. One of the worst movies i have ever seen ? Yes, don´t rent this one or watch it on Netflix, burn Movie 43 in the ground next to Something Borrowed.
