Review

Our Score
This star-packed scatological collection of fake film clips, skits and ads doesn't so much push back the boundaries of taste and decency as thoroughly ignore them. But, if you can leave moral outrage at the door, you'll likely laugh like a drain at an oddly-endowed Hugh Jackman, some extreme home-schooling, superhero speed-dating, Halle Berry's novel way with guacamole, and the "iBabe" combined MP3 player and sex doll. With twelve directors, including Peter Farrelly (There's Something about Mary) and Brett Ratner (Rush Hour), it's inevitably a hit-and-miss hotchpotch of a film, with a paper-thin wraparound plot. And much of it won't appeal to anyone outside the Judd Apatow/Seth MacFarlane school of "extreme" comedy. But it does prove that Jackman, Berry, Kate Winslet, Richard Gere, Gerard Butler, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, Uma Thurman and the rest have a sense of humour - though maybe one that somewhat outstrips their sense of taste.

Summary

Anthology of 14 short comedy films, including a couple trying to give their home-schooled teenage son an accurately traumatic experience of adolescence, a speed-dating event attended by superheroes, a bizarre blind date, and a kidnapping where the hostage is a leprechaun. Featuring Halle Berry, Hugh Jackman and Kate Winslet.
