Storyline

Ineffectual, 'has-been' film-maker (Dennis Quaid) swindles his way into an interview with a film executive (Greg Kinnear) in order to pitch an outrageous and controversial comedy manuscript. After pitching the first of his thirteen offbeat fables, the dejected artist forces the rest of his disjointed allegory on the executive at gunpoint. He tells stories of a woman on a blind date with a man who has testicles growing from his neck, in another a smitten woman offers her neck to her boyfriend to 'poop' on -as a sign of commitment and love. In yet another two parents take home-schooling to a whole new level of indecency, striving to give their isolated teenage son all the 'regular' torment and humiliation of puberty by bullying, peer-pressuring and even seducing him themselves. An off-beat, elephant-in-the-room type film. Written by kwedgwood@hotmail.com

Fake Batman: [segment "Superhero Speed Dating"] You're not going to do it on your own. Pop that in your ear.
Fake Robin: What's that?
Fake Batman: What I'm gonna do is get underneath the table, hide down there, and feed you lines to help bag this next gal.
Fake Robin: Like Cyrano d'Bergerac.
Fake Batman: I don't know what that is. It's more like "Roxanne".

So disgusting, it's almost awesome
3 January 2013 | by MyxuHSee all my reviews

OMG. I thought I knew what to expect but reality turned out to be much more stunning. This movie is something beyond the line dividing good from bad. Jokes are so trashy they make you laugh to tears. But actually the only thing that keeps this movie afloat are the actors. Without these huge Hollywood stars it would be a complete disaster, but when you see Hugh Jackman, Gerard Butler, Kate Winslet, Halle Berry and others, you unwillingly start to think that probably this movie has some value.

If you enjoy humor like in Jay and Silent Bob, you have got to see Movie 43. You'll laugh your ass of. And probably puke couple of times :)
