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
A great big middle finger at everyone that's ever written something
The title is this review says it all. This movie isn't just bad. It is INTENTIONALLY bad. Not just in the sense that it goes out of its way over and over again to be offensive, but in that it goes well out of its way to avoid ever being funny.
If you have ever written a script, poem or short story, it is guaranteed to be better than Movie 43. And Movie 43 in turn is a collective effort by some of Hollywood's greatest underachievers to rub it in your face that you will never get to work in Hollywood -- that they can crank out the greatest travesty in the English language and, not only will they get it on the big screen, but all of the biggest names in Hollywood will be forced to degrade themselves in the process, while your life's work will continue to collect dust while you continue to live in a perpetual state of wage slavery.
