Movie 43: Star-Studded Slop

Movie 43 is a movie about a movie within a movie. And everyone who's anyone in Hollywood these days is in it. Which calls for some name dropping about now. So here's goes, Kate Winslet, Halle Berry, Liev Shreiber, Hugh Jackman, Richard Gere, Naomi Watts, Emma Stone. The list goes on and on, but we've got to include Dennis Quaid and Greg Kinnear since they're in the above photo.

Quaid is a lunatic script writer who'll stop at nothing to get his "masterpiece" produced. Trouble is his flick is a series of gross-out, politically-incorrect, super offensive skits designed to shock more than entertain. Oh, and did we say, so not funny?

Kinnear isn't onboard until Quaid draws a gun.

So what have we got? A movie that tells us it couldn't get produced without going to extreme measures. And that's about the funniest part of Movie 43. Unless the 43 stands for something. Maybe the number of unwitting A-list actors who signed on for this sorry project.

The Huffington Post wonders if it's "An early favorite for worst movie of 2013?
The Movie Slut won't go that far.
