In one of the most vivid cases of a great cast not making a great movie, the latest film from (among others) the Farrelly brothers' Peter Farrelly has received one of the worst critical maulings in recent years.
'Movie 43', a series of comic vignettes directed by a number of different directors, boasts an astonishing line-up of Hollywood talent.

Among the cast are the likes of Dennis Quaid, Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, Emma Stone, Uma Thurman, Gerard Butler, Terrence Howard, Naomi Watts, Halle Berry, Josh Duhamel, Liev Schreiber, Seth MacFarlane, Richard Gere, Anna Faris and Chloe Grace Moretz, with directors including James Gunn and Bob Odenkirk joining Farrelly behind the camera.
