    Entertainment Weekly - by Maane Khatchatourian
    At its best, Movie 43 resembles a risqué episode of Saturday Night Live - a comparison reinforced by the presence of both parody ads and Jason Sudeikis. At its worst? Let's just say that Hugh Jackman fans who want to remember the actor as Jean Valjean and not as a guy with a scrotum sprouting from his neck should make alternate plans this weekend. ...read more

    The Guardian - by Peter Bradshaw
    Movie 43 is sketchy, in every sense. It's a collection of short comedy films in the manner of the 70s cult classic "Kentucky Fried Movie," each with a separate director, in which many very famous actors have been persuaded to take part. ...

    Boston Globe - by Ty Burr
    The line between gross-out humor that's inspired and the kind that's witless is fine indeed, and Movie 43 obliterates it with poop and movie stars. ...read more

    Movie Nation - by Roger Moore
    About a third of the short films land a few laughs. But even the weakest material is lifted by the actors. ...read more

    Austin Chronicle - by Kimberley Jones
    In Movie 43's better-suited afterlife in the home-entertainment market, those sort of quandaries can be hashed out between bong rips and bags of Cheetos. ...read more

    Los Angeles Times - by Sheri Linden
    How many directors does it take to screw in a star-studded piece of aggressive stupidity and call it a movie? An even dozen, and there is no punch line. ...

    The New York Times - by Stephen Holden
    The kindest thing to be said of Movie 43, a star-saturated collection of crude one-joke vignettes made with big-time directors, is that most of the participants seem to relish being naughty. ...

    Time Out New York - by Joshua Rothkopf
    As sick-making sketch comedies go, this stupefyingly bad one-somehow rife with A-list talent-must rank near the very bottom. ...read more

    Total Film - by Josh Winning
    Quite why A-listers Kate Winslet, Hugh Jackman and Emma Stone (among others) aligned themselves with this excruciatingly moronic compilation of shorts is anybody's guess. ...read more

    An epically miserable viewing experience, go ahead and skip this one unless you’re seeking to answer the riddle of what happens when people don’t try at their jobs. ...read more

    It's rare to see a piece of sh** that actually looks and sounds like a piece of sh**. It's kind of exciting! ...read more

    Despite the filmmakers' desperate attempts to scandalize us, the only real shock is that a movie this disastrous ever managed to get made. ...read more

    Chicago Sun-Times - by Richard Roeper
    There's camp-fun bad and interestingly horrible bad, and then there's just awful. Movie 43 is the "Citizen Kane" of awful. ...

    Slant Magazine - by Tina Hassannia
    This is barely a movie at all, mostly due to its structural similarities to "SNL", but also because it acknowledges the fact that its own premises are inherently unfilmable. ...read more

    New York Post - by Lou Lumenick
    If you mashed-up the worst parts of the infamous "Howard the Duck,'' "Gigli,'' "Ishtar'' and every other awful movie I've seen since I started reviewing professionally in 1981, it wouldn't begin to approach the sheer soul-sucking badness of the cringe-inducing Movie 43. ...

    This is truly and most likely the worst movie i have ever seen in my entire life, i mean what the hell was this? What were these great actors thinking? It must bee a great amount of money they were offered to accept this piece of dynamite crap. It’s pure trash that only makes you wish you could vomit on the people who took part in making it.
