Critic Consensus: A star-studded turkey, Movie 43 is loaded with gleefully offensive and often scatological gags, but it's largely bereft of laughs.

Critic Reviews for Movie 43
This is a film so utterly devoid of laughs that it makes one wonder whether Hollywood stars really are feeling the pinch too.
Despite all the gross-out humor, the most offensive thing about this is the lazy filmmaking; every shot feels like a first take, and the haphazard editing precludes any comic timing.
As a film critic, I've seen nearly 4,000 movies over the last fifteen years. Right now, I can't think of one worse than Movie 43.
A cameo parade of stars, some of whom have no obvious gift for comedy, try their hardest, but the laughs just aren't there.
Audience Reviews for Movie 43
It's hard to believe that so many first-rate stars could be involved in such a distasteful compilation of bad taste stories, which are so exceedingly gross and offensive that only a very few are actually original and funny. (There are two versions available, both equally terrible).
Awful, not funny, awful and awful
So I was pretty intrigued by how many bad reviews and great actors this film had, as well as the fact that I'd never heard about it. With good reason. It's really all over the place and so offensive that the true intrigue of it all is how they got these actors to do this in the first place. I mean, I did laugh in the first two skits: the Winslet/Jackman balls one and Home-schooled one. Even those were pretty out there and the rest... well it's watchable; just be prepared to face-palm your way into this movie.
