Plot Summary: From the twisted minds of producers Peter Farrelly (“Hall Pass,” “Shallow Hal”) and Charles Wessler (“There’s Something About Mary,” “Dumb & Dumber”), comes “Movie 43″– the outrageous new ensemble comedy starring some of the biggest names in Hollywood. “Movie 43″ is not for the easily-offended and contains jaw-dropping, sometimes shockingly disturbing, but always entertaining intertwined storylines you’ll have to see to believe.

According to Peter Farrelly, ”Halle Berry and Stephen Merchant play the ultimate game of Truth or Dare. They meet through an online dating service [and later] go to a restaurant,” says Farrelly. ”After some small talk, Halle Berry is sick of it, and says, ‘Let’s play Truth or Dare.’ They start one-upping each other in a very very funny way. The turkey baster is verrrrrrry interesting.”

As for Terrence Howard’s role, the director stated, ‘It’s the first all-black basketball team to host a championship, in the ’50s,” says Farrelly. ”They’re playing an all-white team, and they’re terrified. Terrence Howard has to convince these 6’8” black guys that they’re better than these 5’9” white guys.”
