One To Watch (Or Perhaps Not)

I don't normally write reviews on stuff, because I did this enough times when I was a professional, and, to be honest, I hated it. However, I do sometimes stumble upon a good piece.

The other night I had the exclusive pleasure of watching Movie 43.

It was like this: I was out in the garden doing something of great importance (probably smoking a cigarette) when I heard the characteristic sound of my wife screaming her lungs out from laughter. Now, my wife has a musically trained voice. I've heard her entertain entire cathedrals with no amplifying at all. And when she Laughs Out Loud, they can hear it in the next county.

Curious as I was, I went into the house and up the stairs to the TV room, still accompanied by bursts of laughter and giggling. And there she was, on the verge of pissing herself from watching this movie.

I sat down to see what it was. And it was… Well, Movie 43.

I shall refrain from further comments but I will say this: if you're easily offended by profanities, don't watch it, and it comes from the same producer as 'Dumb & Dumber', so the humour in it is by no measures subtle. I like that…

I think perhaps it is the ensemble cast that makes it so amusing. People like Richard Gere and Hugh Jackman in such moronic plots. It tickles my stupid muscles.

Here's my favourite scene from Movie 43. It made me Laugh Out Loud. Around seven times (give or take).

Johnny Knoxville and Seann William Scott as the stereotypical dude buddies they've played on many occasions, and Gerard Butler as the leprechaun brothers. Fuckin' hilarious…

    That's pretty wild. 😀 So the movie is a collection of short tales like that?

    Oh, yes. Supposed to be the ideas of a crazy writer who comes to a studio with that concept. It's sort of the 'frame' surrounding these stories.

    Perhaps not quite the same thing, but I always loved Hollywood Shuffle. It had short segments too. Hilarious. But the first one of its type that I can remember was Kentucky Fried Movie.

    Yeah, this is on my list if not just for all the people on board.

    Hm, last time I've seen Gerard Butler in a movie, he was pretty tall :left: :POk, I've seen this movie advertised in some movie shops (I don't think it ever reached cinemas in Vancouver) so it might be worth watching :up:

    The thing I've heard most in relation to this is "tries to hard", as in always trying to hit the lowest levels of humour for an easy laugh rather than trying to be more than it ended up being. What would you say to that?

  9. Aqualion says:

    Well, first of all: I would have been quite disappointed if I'd gone to the cinema and watched it there, because it's definitely not a cinematic experience. It's not by any measures a masterpiece. The good thing about it is, that it's devided into episodes, so you can fast forward to the next 'chapter' if it gets too embarassing. There were two or three of the stories that were too far gone even to me. I believe the thing about "tries too hard" comes from the fact that this film has been many years under way. This is peculiar, because it's actually just another "Scary Movie" spin-off, only with renowned actors this time.

    It looks like something I'd enjoy watching! 😀
