Movie 43 is a prime example why it is good to have red-band, NSFW trailers. Had this just been a green-band trailer the comedy wouldn’t look nearly as funny (or off-the-wall). An anthology flick in the tradition of The Kentucky Fried Movie and with a cast that looks to rival It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, the comedy looks completely nuts.
Hopefully, this is a good thing, as looks can be deceiving. Heaven help us if this is something like the craptastic spoofs (if you can call them that) of Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer of Date Movie and Epic Movie infamy.
Sporting celebrities from Johnny Knoxville to Kate Winslet, this raunchy comedy took four years to make.
When I first heard of the production I was intrigued because of the talent assembled, wondering why celebrities like Hugh Jackman and Naomi Watts would be involved with such a project. But then I remembered: sometimes actors like to take a break and do something off the beaten path and act stupidly for a change.
This red-band trailer below will either make you laugh or cringe at the comic exploits. But even if you can’t make heads or tails of the vignettes, you should at least crack a smile. I mean who could resist Naomi Watts telling her home-schooled son, “You dropped your books, f–kface” as she passes him on the stairs?
