Peter Farrelly irked by Movie 43 critics

Jan 30 2013, 10:11am CST | by

Peter Farrelly has told 'Movie 43' critics to ''back off''.

The filmmaker took to Twitter to defend his new comedy - which features an all-star cast including Halle Berry, Emma Stone and Kate Winslet - after it received poor reviews from film critics and underperformed at the US box office over the weekend, taking just $4.8 million.

He tweeted: ''To the critics - 'Movie 43' is not the end of the world. It's just a $6 million movie where we tried to do something different. Now back off.''

He then added: ''You always complain that Hollywood never gives you new stuff, and then when you get it, you flip out. Lighten up.''

However, fans didn't react well to his comment and film buff Harold Itzkowitz was quick to reply: ''Newness isn't the issue. Goodness is. And why answer critics? Your work speaks for itself, right? Now go laughing to the bank.''

The experimental film features 12 different storylines, each brought to life by a different director, and one of the largest casts to ever grace the big screen, but it failed to impress and has only received a 4% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Peter Howell of the Toronto Star newpaper described it has ''the worst movie [I've] ever seen'', while Richard Roeper of the Chicago Sun-Times newpaper dubbed it ''aggressively tasteless''.

Peter and his brother Bobby Farrelly are currently working on a sequel to 1994's 'Dumb and Dumber'.

Oct 18 2014 2:16pm CDT | Source: Empire Online

Batman and Hulk go for coffeeAs the Michael-Keaton-for-Oscar bandwagon gains momentum, it’s worth taking a minute to see what all the fuss is about. Alejandro Iñárritu's Birdman is a much-hyped showcase for his acting skills, setting him alongside a gifted support cast that boasts Edward Norton, Emma Stone and Naomi Watts. It’s Norton, though, on sidekick duties in this new clip from the film as a fiery actor wi ...

Birdman Review: Michael Keaton Soars in Stunner

Oct 17 2014 10:03am CDT | Source: movie fanatic

In Birdman, Michael Keaton stars as Riggan, a washed-up actor whose superstar days of being a cinematic superhero are long gone. He is trying to get his mojo back by mounting a Broadway play that finds him risking everything. Alejandro González Iñárritu’s masterpiece follows the days prior to the production’s opening and the interweaving circus-worthy cast of characters who simultaneously ...

New York Film Festival 2014: Birdman Movie Review

Oct 15 2014 5:13pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

Closing out this year's New York Film Festival is the latest film from Mexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu, Birdman. It’s not often that an art-house director takes on the superhero genre, but this is a special case where Iñárritu is not really adapting a fictional comic book character (I mean, all superheroes are fictional, right?), but rather a look at celebrity and how that clashes with art and commerce. Birdman or ...
