IN OCTOBER 2012, A TRAILER FOR A STRANGE-LOOKING ENSEMBLE COMEDY DEBUTED ONLINE. IT WENT ON FOR AT LEAST 10 MINUTES, BUT I CAN'T RECALL HOW LONG IT WAS EXACTLY. THE FIRST CLIP SHOWED A PICNIC, WHERE ONE MAN AND ONE WOMAN SOUND LIKE THEY'RE ABOUT TO PROPOSE TO EACH OTHER, BUT INSTEAD, SHE SAYS, "WILL YOU POOP ON ME?" ANOTHER TRAILER RELEASED IN LATE NOVEMBER/EARLY DECEMBER SHOWED A BASKETBALL TEAM, WHERE ONE PLAYER TOLD ANOTHER TO USE HIS GENITALS TO KNOCK OVER HIS RIVALS -- IN A GAME OF BASKETBALL. I NOW HEARD EVERYTHING I NEEDED TO HEAR TO KNOW THAT MOVIE 43 WAS GOING TO EMBODY EVERYTHING WRONG WITH SCATOLOGICAL COMEDY IN A POST-Y2K WORLD.
 
BY JANUARY, I WAS WARNING EVERYONE ABOUT MOVIE 43, COMING AT THE END OF THE MONTH. THERE WERE ONLY A FEW PEOPLE WHO DIDN'T SWEEP IT UNDER THE RUG. ONLY A HANDFUL OF US EVEN TALKED ABOUT THIS FILM. IT WAS NOT PRE-SCREENED FOR CRITICS, AND IT DIDN'T HAVE ANY REVIEWS ON ROTTEN TOMATOES (UNTIL OPENING MORNING). I THOUGHT THE APPROVAL RATING WOULD BE LOW, BUT I SHOULD'VE KNOWN THAT ALL of THE FIRST 6 REVIEWS WOULD BE NEGATIVE. THE ENSEMBLE CAST INCLUDES SOME FAMILIAR FACES TO THE RAZZIES, INCLUDING HALLE BERRY, GERARD BUTLER, AND KATE BOSWORTH. BUT MOST INTRIGUING OF ALL IS THE 11 DIRECTORS. THIS HAS TO AT LEAST MAKE OUR 2013 NOMINATING BALLOT FOR WORST ENSEMBLE CAST -- AND IT WOULD PROBABLY SERVE US WELL TO CONSIDER MOVIE 43 FOR A JOINT NOMINATION FOR WORST DIRECTOR
 
BUT DON'T LET ME BE THE ONLY ONE MASHING MOVIE 43. VENT AT THIS 43-POUND BLOB OF MUCK BELOW!
 
 
VERY CLEVER, ALL OF YOU INVOLVED IN THIS *H**FEST! 
A LEMON-LIME COLORED SORCERESS DRESSED ONLY IN 
BLUE WRITING? I CAN TASTE THE MEDICINE-FLAVORED 
CITRUS DRINKS JUST THINKING ABOUT IT! THE SCATOLOGY 
SMELLS FILTHIER THAN EVER BEFORE!

It's only January, and I already have my worst film of the year! This should be up for Worst Picture, Worst Screen Ensemble, Worst Screenplay, and for Worst Director -- with an (s) in parentheses!   

I didn't laugh at all, except for a couple times when the dumb audience did, and only because laughter is contagious. Any good traits this film has? It's easily forgettable...and that's it!

It's also worth noting that Hugh Jackman and Naomi Watts are in this movie, and they are both nominated for Oscars this year. Being in a movie this crappy could hurt their chances of winning, kinda how Eddie Murphy being in Norbit (which came out during the time he was Oscar-nominated for Dreamgirls) supposedly caused him to lose...

So, according to IMDb, among the people who managed to avoid involvement in this fiasco are George Clooney, Colin Farrell, and, in the directors' chair, Trey Parker and Matt Stone (It'd be "The End Times" if Trey and Matt got Razzie nominations)...

I know, that's why I said "like". The point is that, unlike the Oscars which have a rule about the number of nominees per category, the Razzies have no problem in awarding dozens of people.

A.k.a. a "portmanteau film".  Okay, so instead of intertwining the multiple storylines like those other films, Movie 43 keeps them separate.  Would you like another hair to split?
 
And while you're busy splitting hairs, let's talk about something more important, like everybody who squandered their career on this portmanteau film:
 
Dennis Quaid, Greg Kinnear, Common, Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslett, Naomi Watts, Anna Faris, Emma Stone, Richard Gere, Kate Bosworth, Uma Thurman, Gerard Butler, Halle Berry, Snooki, Terrence Howard, and way too many other names. . . .

Well, I think that there's a big difference between hiring many actors for many short films (where there are big chances that they'll be mostly stars) for practical reasons (you can't make a Portmanteau Film with a few actors*), and, coming up with half-assed ideas as an excuse to reunite actors (stars only) for commercial reasons. LOL

*AMERICAN HORROR STORY is a valid exception.

I disagree, because you're not considering:
 
1)  They both "hire many actors"
2)  They both have "many short films", or to be more accurate, many short stories - one intertwines, the other keeps them separate
3)  They both tend to have "half-assed ideas"
4)  They both are excuses to reunite actors (stars only - take, well, Movie 43 for example)
 
Once you stop disregarding the similarities, we can discuss the only real difference between them.

You say New York Stories, I say Grand Hotel, Crash and Babel.
 
As for explaining what "subplot" means, you first need to understand a subplot before you can explain it.  See, you have a main plot, and then you have a subplot.  You can't have a subplot without a main plot.  That's different from having many main plots intertwine with each other.  However, you don't see that because you don't know what a main plot is, because if you knew what a main plot was, you wouldn't be using "subplot" to describe Valentine's Day or New Year's Eve.
 
Speaking of portmanteau films, anybody seen Blame It On The Bellboy?

No, no, because... Well... Ummm... Huh. That's actually accurate. Crap!

Anyway, this started because you were comparing MOVIE 43 to those movies. Now we know they're comparable in quality, but not in format (as I said from the beginning).

Categories this pile of $h!^ should get nominated for: 

Worst Picture: There's much to hate about this movie. This will be discussed in other categories the movie is worthy of getting nominated. 

Worst Director: Elizabeth Banks, Steven Brill, Steve Carr, Rusty Cundieff, James Duffy, Griffin Dunne, Peter Farrelly, Patrik Forsberg, James Gunn, Bob Odenkirk, Brett Ratner & Jonathan VanTulleken. 
All the directors should be condemned. Their combined "effort" resulted in this poorly-structured pile-of-$h!^. 

Worst Screenplay: Steve Baker, Will Carlough, Jacob Fleisher, Patrik Forsberg, Matt Portenoy, Greg Pritikin, Rocky Russo, Jeremy Sosenko & Elizabeth Wright Shapiro. 
What were these writers on when they were working on this? The "story" doesn't make much sense. 

Worst Screen Ensemble: The cast combination just doesn't work. The movie's poor structure just made the the entire cast unlikable.  

Worst Screen Couple: Many pairings in this movie deserve nominations.

Well after seeing the trailers for both Movie 43 and Inappropriate Comedy, I can now say that it will be hard to forget two horrible offensive "comedies". Side note: Why would the creators of these films even make movies like that? What's the point or the joke? I don't see how being offensive, racist, sexist or homophobic is funny at all.

It can be, but it requires wit. Just look at the stand-up of Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock and Sarah Silverman. And also the works of Trey Parker & Matt Stone, and, some of the works of Seth MacFarlane.

Yeah true, but at the same time these films just outright (and for no reason) offend and make fun of various minority groups and people with disabilities. Like you said, there is no wit, and I think there should be a disclaimer or something on these films. 

Also, I think comedians like Chris Rock and Seth Macfarlane don't really mean what they're saying when doing "offensive jokes" in their stand up routines or on Family Guy. Like what happened at this years Oscars: Seth sang the song "We saw your Boobs" just for shock value...

A little bit of an update on Movie 43: Apparently, Anton Yelchin was in a skit as a necrophiliac, but that got cut. Another thing I noticed was that IMDb had Tony Shalhoub in the cast list, but he was nowhere to be seen either. It now turns out he was in another cut skit (with Julianne Moore) as a pair of detectives. Both of these sequences are said to be "extras" on the DVD...

Normally, I'd say what I wanted it nominated for specifically, but this was so bad, that I want it nominated in every single possible category. For Worst Remake, Rip-off, or Sequel, it should be listed as a rip-off of The Groove Tube, The Kentucky Fried Movie, and Robot Chicken. For Worst Screen Couple either nominated all the different couples seperately (i.e. Hugh Jackman and Kate Winslet, Anna Faris and Chris Pratt, etc.) or nominate them all together under "Any two actors or actresses http://www.nextmovie.com/blog/movie-43-casting-guilt/ - guilted into appearing in this." As for Worst Acting, I'd like it if everyone was on the nominating ballot, but there's no chance of that happening. So, here the ones I want to see nominated the most: Halle Berry, Kate Winslet, Naomi Watts, Richard Gere, Dennis Quaid, and Gerard Butler.

I actually didn't get to see it until I saw it on Netflix.

The professor from Futurama said it best, even though this meme is overrated, but overrated or not, "I don't want to live in this planet anymore." That is my reaction to Movie 43.

This is easily going to the number 1 spot now after the horrors of The 41-Year-Old Virgin Who Knocked Up Sarah Marshall and Felt Superbad About It!, Barney's Great Adventure, and Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Those three movies are watchable compared to Movie 43.

I'm definitely in favor of a Worst Screen Ensemble nomination, but I think some should be in the acting categories too. Particularly those with other bad performances (for example if Josh Duhamel gets one for Safe Haven, mention this too) or those who are extremely unlikely to ever again be in something this bad and thus we'd never have another chance at them (Kate Winslet, Naomi Watts).

Now for the razzing. . . .

SPOILER ALERT

But remember, I have no problem spoiling something that's already spoiled!

We've got this portmanteau film, most segments framed by desperate screenwriter Dennis Quaid holding milquetoast studio exec Greg Kinnear at gunpoint demanding that he listen to his wonderful script, which filled me with wonder, like I wonder who would finance movies like Movie 43?

Oh, excuse me, it would be financed by a billionaire who is crazy like a fox.  Movie 43 cost $6 million to make, and hauled in $29 million worldwide.   http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=movie43.htm - Check it out at Box Office Mojo .  So, how would you like to quintuple your investment in a year?

So, does that mean that we will see a Movie 44 as opposed to a great movie about the life and times of Bass Reeves, a real life Arkansas slave who became one of the few if not the first black lawmen in the Wild West and quite possibly served as the inspiration for the Lone Ranger? . . .

Please don't answer that. . . . Cry

We are then subjected to one awful, reprehensible, unfunny, painful idea after another.  

Want to see Kate Winslett go Twilight Zone while dating Hugh Jackman with his manhood on his neck and no one but Winslett sees anything disgustingly odd about him?  You got it anyway. . . .

Want to see a high schooler get homeschooled by his parents, to the point where he is abused and molested in the name of making sure he has all those "life experiences"?  This includes his mother, Naomi Watts, not only giving him his first kiss but saying she wants to give him his first time, too?  You got it anyway. . . .

Note:  the film cuts away at that point, being one of the few times this movie spared the crassness. . . .

Want to see Anna Faris propose that Chris Pratt, who stars in the movie Her with all those little naked golden men dangling all around it, Censored on her?  And so Pratt, armed with way too much info about the subject from one of his friends, goes for it?  You got it anyway. . . .

Want to see Halle Berry and Stephen Merchant go at the Dare in a game of Truth or Dare, graduating from grabbing people and ruining kid's parties to plastic surgery, not to mention Berry using her fake oversized boob to mix guacamole?  You got it anyway.  What's more, this was the least worst part in the whole movie! . . . 

We've got wackos romanticizing on the store's intercom, a music player shaped like a naked cutie with a fan in her womanhood, DC Comics characters in speed dating with poor Robin getting the butt end, a PSA about how we shouldn't curse office machines because kids are inside of them, a basketball story where the coach demands his team buy into racial stereotypes, a girl having her first menstruation at the home of her boyfriend and no male knows anything about what to do, one brother giving a tied-up murderous leprechaun as a gift to his other brother but the leprechaun has a brother too (okay, this sketch sounds better than it turned out), and Charlie Sheen favoring his cartoon cat, who is secretly horny for Sheen, over his girlfriend, who the cat goes all Chucky on. . . .

Do you want any of that?  Well, you got it anyway. . . .

END OF SPOILERS

. . . but unfortunately not of this spoiled movie?

Is it worse than A Madea's Christmas?  I laughed when Tyler Perry and Larry the Cable Guy started riffing back and forth in that one scene, so I have to say yes, Movie 43 is worse. . . .

Is it worse than The Lone Ranger?  This is infinitely worse than taking the character of the Lone Ranger, turning him into a manchild antihero with his head up where there is no sunshine and Johnny Depp's Tonto, which does disservice to that great painting by http://kirbysattler.sattlerartprint.com/ - Kirby Sattler .  Although parts of that movie make me wonder if it didn't start as a Tim Burton movie until it was given over to Jerry Bruckheimer, but I'm just speculating. . . .

Is it worse than After Earth?  Despite the bazillion flashblacks, the whole movie being carried on the back of Jaden Smith's mediocre acting (which made me wonder what happened between this movie and the remake of The Karate Kid?), the bad way great ideas are presented like Will Smith's character not being able to experience fear and so being invisible to the human-killing ursas, and the boring, boring result. . . oh, yes, Movie 43 is much worse than After Earth.

Is it worse than Grown Ups 2?  Well, Movie 43 makes Grown Ups 2 look like classic comedy.  Considering Grown Ups 2 is worse than Grown Ups, which only had one scene that made me laugh, that's not saying a whole lot.  Maybe Rob Schneider was lucky not to be in the sequel?  Maybe Nick Swardson wasn't so lucky?   Maybe no one in Movie 43 was as lucky as Nick Swardson? . . . .

Still, my advocacy is for Movie 43 getting as many Razzies as we can possibly bestow on it, including a worst actress for Naomi Watts.  I know, Halle Berry is also up for worst actress for the same movie, but which is worse. . . what Berry allowed to be filmed without using any of her clout to improve it, or what Watts allowed to be filmed without using any of her clout to improve it?  

And to be honest, improving it would have been as easy as erasing the hard drive. . . .

I'm afraid our amigo is propelled by his propaganda.  In other words, his assessment is an assemblage of the assumptions he believes rather than what's actually up on the screen, if you know what I mean. . . .

Think about the movie (oh, sorry, I didn't mean to hurt you. . .).  Did it come across as a scathing critique of American life, or did it come across as one sorry ass sketch after another?  If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, looks like a duck, then it must be a whole lot better than Movie 43. . . .

I want to thank every Razzie member who voted for Movie 43 as the worst movie of 2013.  It's a rare movie that has so much star-power, yet is so utterly wretched. . . .

But this brings up a technicality:  Did Movie 43 win 3 Razzies, or since their were 13 directors and 19 "screenwriters," did it actually "win" 33 Razzies? 

An even better question: Will even ONE of the dozens of people involved in this awful celluloid offal accept their Razzie for what they put their movie's viewers through?

Actually, I'd prefer an explanation as to why this movie was ever made...and no, I don't accept the Dennis Quaid/Greg Kinnear sketch as an explanation. . . .

They all admitted not wanting to be in the movie in the first place, they didn't advertise it, and, they didn't even attend the premiere. So I'm sure at least one will accept it.

I take it when you say at least "one" will accept it, are you referring to Peter Farrelly, the director who in that article you linked spoke both glowingly about how funny this movie was and knowingly about how low it would rate on RT (it actually rated lower, Peter) and how badly it would go over with the critics?

Thanks for that link, by the way.

It still boggles my mind why these guys thought this was funny and why they went ahead and put it into production.  Are they saying this is the future?

A lot of the Farrelly bros. movies had good reviews. And they all had the same kind of humour.

I'm going to have to view more Farrelly Brothers films.  So far, I've only seen Osmosis Jones, which was fun and informative, a rare feat.

Even so, regardless of how funny they were with There's Something About Mary or Dumb and Dumber, Movie 43 was not funny at all.  It was painful.

Except for BARNEY (which I haven't seen), I agree with you.

I think it's worse than all of them.

Wow, Vits, you gave Movie 43 more time than it deserved. . . .

I just saw Kentucky Fried Movie, and it was way, way better than Movie 43.

The reason why I didn't mention KENTUCK FRIED MOVIE in my review is because I didn't love it nor hate it. And I did mention other sketch comedy movies because I didn't like them.
