movie 43 cheeseball cinemaFor a very long time, I had wanted to see the film Movie 43 which is an ode to anthology comedy films like The Kentucky Fried Movie which had previously reviewed for Cheeseball Cinema and so I figured why not today. Dennis Quaid (Dreamscape) plays Charles Wessler, a man who is looking to pitch his movie ideas to a studio head named Griffin (Greg Kinnear). He starts to tell him some of his stories, but Griffin feels their too offensive and wants to kick him out. So, Charles holds him at gunpoint and he continues to pitch ideas like the iBabe which is basically a naked hot girl who also happens to be an ipod, Robin (Justin Long) tries speed dating, but Batman (Jason Sudeikis) is always there to bust his balls, a man (Chris Pratt) gets a proposition from his girlfriend (Anna Faris) which involves crapping on her, a girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) unfortunately gets her first period while on a date in front of a bunch of moron guys, a game of truth or dare that goes terribly the wrong way, and a girl(Kate Winslet) who finds out her blind date (Hugh Jackman) has balls on his chin. The film also stars Emma Stone (Birdman), Common (Run All Night), Seth MacFarlane (Ted), Richard Gere (Pretty Woman), Halle Berry (Losing Isiah), Naomi Watts (The Ring), Liev Schreiber (Defiance), J.B. Smooth (The Sitter), Kieran Culkin (Home Alone 2), Kate Bosworth (Still Alice),  Jack McBrayer (Wreck It Ralph), Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars), Katrina Bowden (Tucker & Dale Vs Evil), Johnny Knoxville (Bad Grandpa), Sean William Scott (American Pie), Gerard Butler (Law Abiding Citizen), and the film features segments directed by people like Elizabeth Banks, James Duffy, Brett Ratner, James Gunn, Peter Farrelly, and many more. 

Cathy CliftenThis film is actually pretty brilliant even though a lot of its segments are absolutely absurd like homeschooled which is just creepy at times. One of my favorite segments and by far the bets one on there is definitely the truth or dare game. Once they start daring each other and they go to war on it, they have some of the funniest segments and bits in it and we have Peter Farrelly to thank for that one. There is plenty of T&A in this film thanks to both iBabe segments that are included in the film and my second favorite segment would be the super hero speed dating which you can pretty much figure out who did that out of the ones I named above. The film has a lot of star power in it which may have been the attractive side of the film that sold everyone, but they actually work and a lot off them truly are funny. I definitely recommend this film for anyone who is fan of such films like this and too bad there weren’t too many of these around. Well, If you’re a horror fan then you’ll definitely enjoy the ABC’s Of Death franchise because they do that with 26 directors. Nevertheless, it’s kind of a waste that it’s here, but we’ve gone this far, now it’s time to grade it. On a scale of one being close to an A-List Hollywood film and five being the cheesiest film of all time, I am going to give this film a 1.2 for a final grade. Check it out on Netflix right now!
