The films are connected by a group of three teenagers searching for the most banned film in the world, Movie 43, which will ultimately lead to the destruction of civilization. Calvin Cutler and his friend J.J. make a video in the style of MTV's Jackass and upload it on YouTube where it instantly reaches over 1,000,000 views. This turns out to be an April Fool's prank from Calvin's younger brother Baxter, who cloned YouTube and hyper-inflated the views while working on his science project. Calvin and J.J. attempt to get revenge. They tell Baxter of a film that's so dangerous it will cause the annihilation of the world.
There are two different version of this movie. The first one which is described above and one where is a producer trying to get a movie made. The different short films have nothing to do with each other, at all. They are just random short films thrown together with a story line placed in between. Most of the films are pretty good, but one or two are just trying to hard. The movie is filled with a big named cast. There are some really good actors that starred in the movie.
This is not a bad movie to watch at all. It is very entertaining and pretty funny for the most part. I just wondered how they paid all of these big named actors to be in this movie. The budget was not that big for it. Enjoy.
