Because we only review G, PG, and PG-13 movies at Parent Previews we did not review this title. For your convenience, we have provided some brief information about the film’s synopsis and content.
Synopsis: A lengthy list of Hollywood headliners have gotten together to direct and star in this crass comedy featuring just about as many storylines. Perhaps that is why they called it Movie 43.
Involving 12 story lines from 11 directors and 15 writers, this collaborative effort pushes all boundaries even in the gross-out film genre. The trailer alone includes racial jokes, crude name calling, comments about sex and body parts, references to body fluids, female menstruation and the depiction of a father fondling his son’s girlfriend.
Director Peter Farrelly sums up his aspirations about this movie in an interview with Yahoo Movies: “By the way, this thing’s going to get about an 8 on Rotten Tomatoes’ meter. The critics are gonna freak out at this thing, but the college kids, high school kids, 20-somethings, and anybody who smokes weed is gonna flip out.”
Good chance if you’re reading Parent Previews you will want to think twice before sending the kids to this one…
Movie 43 is rated R: for strong pervasive crude and sexual content including dialogue, graphic nudity, language, some violence and drug use.
