The costumed high-school hero Kick-Ass joins with a group of normal citizens who have been inspired to fight crime in costume. Meanwhile, the Red Mist plots an act of revenge that will affect everyone Kick-Ass knows.
Chloë Grace Moretz,
A shy student trying to reach his family in Ohio, a gun-toting tough guy trying to find the last Twinkie, and a pair of sisters trying to get to an amusement park join forces to travel across a zombie-filled America.
A former sports star who's fallen on hard times starts coaching his son's soccer team as a way to get his life together. His attempts to become an adult are met with challenges from the attractive soccer moms who pursue him at every turn.
Ineffectual, 'has-been' film-maker (Dennis Quaid) swindles his way into an interview with a film executive (Greg Kinnear) in order to pitch an outrageous and controversial comedy manuscript. After pitching the first of his thirteen offbeat fables, the dejected artist forces the rest of his disjointed allegory on the executive at gunpoint. He tells stories of a woman on a blind date with a man who has testicles growing from his neck, in another a smitten woman offers her neck to her boyfriend to 'poop' on -as a sign of commitment and love. In yet another two parents take home-schooling to a whole new level of indecency, striving to give their isolated teenage son all the 'regular' torment and humiliation of puberty by bullying, peer-pressuring and even seducing him themselves. An off-beat, elephant-in-the-room type film. Written by
Nothing can prepare you for "Movie 43". It fails on every conceivable level, not one laugh! I'm all for raunchy, crude, and stupid comedies....when they're done well. A way to summarize it is a bunch of random skits that go nowhere without a punchline or purpose.
It's stupid, offensive, unfunny, painful, mean-spirited, and pointless. Need I say more? You have a truly great ensemble of talented actors in Hollywood and the inept people who made this trash can't even put them to good use! There is no story, there is no character development, there is not a single joke that works, and the film becomes tedious. It makes me angry, to be honest. There are struggling filmmakers with worthy scripts that may never get made and yet somehow, a bunch of people write a movie that an 8 year old could write better. I seriously want to know how this got green-lighted. Unbelievable, just astonishing beyond lameness.
Remember, I watched it so you don't have to. Spare yourself time and money from this piece of crap. Let's just hope these kind of movies never get made again!
