Movie 43

Movie 43 is About as Funny as Its Title

You know what’s not hilarious? Paying $9 a person for a movie that is so awful that you have to drink away the memories of just how awful it was. I will tell you right now that Movie 43 is one of the worst movies I’ve seen in a while. The last movie I saw that was this bad was The Watch—and even THAT had a more coherent storyline than this movie.  Continue reading “Movie 43 is About as Funny as Its Title”
