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'.

Birdman: New Trailer Dives Deep into a Washed Up Superhero

Jul 31 2014 3:21pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

Academy Award nominated director Alejandro González Iñárritu takes on the superhero genre with his new film Birdman. While the film will not be released until October, its distributor Fox Searchlight Pictures is really pushing the art-house film with a new trailer. Iñárritu is mostly known for making films that are photographically beautiful, but emotionally painful and taxing and from the looks of the new trailer, Birdman looks deceptively similar to Iñárrit ...

Welcome to the second round of Moviepilot's Ms. Marvel fan casting. What insights did we gain from round numero uno?Well, a couple of big stars dropped from voting procedures like hot cakes from the hands of a clumsy child, proving once again that in the realm of fan casting bigger names don't equal more votes.

Specialty B.O.: ‘Magic In The Moonlight,’ ‘A Most Wanted Man’ Find A Little Magic In Debuts

Jul 27 2014 12:53pm CDT | Source: Deadline

Bold debuts from two of the weekend’s openers in a crowded specialty box office included yet another Woody Allen film as well as a last starring turn from the late Philip Seymour Hoffman. Allen’s Magic in the Moonlight was another solid opener in a string of recent successes for the veteran writer-director, with a good per-screen average. That said, the numbers were less stratospheric than some of his recent summer films when comparing on a straight theater average, though this go-around did ...
