Movie 43 is a series of comedic short stories that are linked together as a movie plot which is pitched to a film executive who is eventually forced at gunpoint to agree to make this outlandish and an inappropriately hilarious film. A movie within a movie, Movie 43 cleverly becomes the movie that no one would want to make. Stand out sketches include Kate Winslet and Hugh Jackman’s awkward dinner engagement, Seann William Scott’s angry birthday present, and an animated cat named Beezel whose inappropriate affection for his owner are truly wrong (Klaus Ming November 2013).
