Dennis Quaid, Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, Seth McFarland, Naomi Watts, Emma Stone, Halle Berry, Johnny Knoxville, Common, Gerard Butler, the list goes on and on! What is this list? A very small part of the crew for “Movie 43.” Such an outstanding cast would surely mean that this movie would be a smash hit, right? Charlie Wessler (Dennis Quaid) is a failing actor trying to pitch his idea for a new comedy to Griffin Schraeder (Greg Kinnear), a producer, but as he tells of his ideas for movies he loses his hopes of selling his movies. Each of his ideas follows a short film/skit and ends with Griffin wondering what's going on and where Charlie is going with this promo. Unfortunately the audience is wondering the same thing as they leave the theater. Raunch, vulgarity, crude humor, and sex make up this cheap attempt at comedy and to make a few bucks; I was even surprised to see Seth McFarland make an appearance in it! The best part of the entire movie was the last scene before the credits, and it seemed to be the only skit that had some thought put into it. And it was minimal at best. “Movie 43” was a plea to be noticed by the actors in it and one cannot help but feel sorry for those who had a part in it. Dennis Quaid came across as an actor desperate for a scene. Hugh Jackman was a disappointment to see in such a below-mediocrity film, especially after watching his moving performance in Les Mis. Halle Berry could do so much better but after seeing a film like this one must wonder, why aren't all of these well known actors/actresses doing better than they are? Is this the comedic edge Hollywood is now striving to bring us? Will we only be able to look forward to cheap laughs and lousy, quickly thrown together movies that leave you wondering why you just wasted an hour and a half of your life watching it? If “Movie 43” is a sign of what's to come, then we are on the highway to an art known as a self-inflicted coma of the mind brought on by a so-called film industry.
