Latest Movie News Headlines

A leaked clip from Movie 43 plus news on Dumb and Dumber To

Jan. 23, 2013by: Alex Maidy

MOVIE 43, which looks like a funny diversion, is apparently the latest movie to suffer the January Dumps. No advance screenings have been advertised for critics, which never bodes well for a studio picture. MOVIE 43 has been pieced together for years so the directors and actors could squeeze filming in between their major projects. How else would a small budget film get Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Naomi Watts, Emma Stone, Terrence Howard, Richard Gere, and Kate Winslet in the same movie?

This new clip is apparently "leaked" online but it looks like it may be a studio plant to try and hype the film. The clip comes from the Terrence Howard segment "Victory's Glory" about an all Black basketball team trying to compete against an all White squad. What follows is a funny motivational speech involving dick size.

Sketch movies have never been big box office draws, especially in today's age when short videos featuring celebrities like this make their way to YouTube and Funny or Die every day.

Peter Farrelly, one of the many MOVIE 43 directors, had an interview with Entertainment Weekly about the film and shed some status on the long in development DUMB AND DUMBER sequel. Here is what he had to say.

"It’s not a firm greenlight yet because there are still negotiations happening, but that’s what we’d like to do next. We have a script that’s really, really fun. If I told the plot to you, you’d say, “That’s a piece of s—.” But if I had told you the first one—”Well, it’s about two guys and they find a briefcase and they bring it to Aspen to meet a chick”—you’d be like, “You’re f—ing with me. That’s not a movie!” It’s a character thing, and it’s all about the little things. Because it’s been so hard to get this thing made for whatever reason—it’s baffling but whatever—we’ve had time to just keep plugging, keep plugging, keep plugging. And the script is really fun."

So, not much news or movement on DUMB AND DUMBER TO. Here's hoping Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels can finally get on the same page and get this done.

I saw this film at a press screening, and it is god-awful. Lowest common denominator, bottom of the barrel humour that tries so hard to be shocking and offensive that it is ultimately unbearably crass, pointless and unfunny. The selling point is the cast, who gamely leave their dignity at the door, but they deserve ridicule and not admiration for partaking in something like this. It was horrible.

wow. For something that's supposed to be a raunchy-pull no punches-R rated film, they sure played it safe as hell by making the white racist kids call the black kids "negro" over and over.

MOVIE 43 looks like absolute crap.

The trailers are awful. There was one funny part in this clip though, though I figured it was going to happen when he was taking the free-throw, but that was it. The rest is awful.

Comedy sequels

It's baffling that some comedies (i.e. Anchorman and Dumb & Dumber) have a hard time getting sequels greenlit. I mean we're not talking Caddyshack II here where hardly any of the cast returns. I personally can't wait for Dumb & Dumber To.

Two guys delivering a suitcase to a woman in Assssspen sounds like a great story! Why do they keep saying its not about the story!? I feel like I'm on crazy pills! Nevertheless I'm still shooting over the fact that they want Dumb and Dumber To for their next project. Can't wait and I HOPE the story is as good as the first, cause it was a great script.
