Storyline

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 kwedgwood@hotmail.com

Trivia

The framing device was initially supposed to involve three teenagers going on a treasure hunt to find the mysterious Movie 43 of the plot and the rest of the segments would be featured as what the characters thought was it but wasn't. The version of the film released in the UK retains this device instead of the 'movie producer' version. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the skit, "The Proposition", Anna Faris's character is called Julie and Chris Pratt's character is called Doug. In the credits, they are called Vanessa and Jason. See more »

Quotes

Fake Robin: Wait, let me get this straight. So you knew all the way back then? You knew that she was a dude?
Fake Batman: Whole time.
Fake Robin: Why did you make me kiss her? Him. It. This.
Fake Batman: I don't know. I guess I woke up this morning with a little case of the fuckarounds.

Worst movie I've seen. Description and trailer are a lie.
20 February 2013 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

Omg, I'm very open person but for the first time I went out of a movie after 30minutes. Feeling sick. We didn't know what to do with ourselves. Went to a shop to buy anything and everything to reset our brains. :) I just made an account here, only to express that it is simply not fair! I feel cheated. How people can lie so much in the description of the movie. I can't believe those actors took part in it. What a shame. Why? Why! This is only for people who laughs at obscenities and profanity. And defecation. But if you surprisingly don't, it's not funny at all. I was waiting for any story behind it but.. no. There was nothing there.

Wait for a DVD or sth if all those negative reviews made you interested. Really don't pay for the cinema ticket. Really.
