<i>Amazon Women on the Moon</i>: The Original <i>Movie 43</i>

Despite the participation of a galaxy of stars (Emma Stone! Chris Pratt! Richard Gere! Halle Berry!) and several big-name directors (Peter Farrelly! James Gunn! Brett Ratner!), the feature-length assemblage of skits that's billing itself as Movie 43 arrives in theaters this weekend unscreened for critics. (Imagine spending 90 minutes surfing Funny or Die and you've got the general gist of what it has to offer.) That's almost certainly a terrible sign, but I can't help but hold out hope that maybe, just maybe Movie 43 will be as stupidly enjoyable as the all-star sketch comedy revue it's clearly inspired by. I'm speaking, of course, about 1987's Amazon Women on the Moon, where such then-famous actors as Steve Guttenberg, Rosanna Arquette and Ed Begley Jr. popped up in spoofs of TV commercials, shows and one very bad '50s sci-fi movie.

Razzie Awards 2014: Picks, Predictions and Oversights

Razzie Awards 2014: Picks, Predictions and Oversights

Tomorrow morning, the nominations for the most prestigious and beloved movies and performances of 2013 (and August: Osage County) will be announced for the 86th Academy Awards. This morning, however, the nominations for the polar opposite Golden Raspberry Awards dropped and since there's little chance of much overlap (though The Lone Ranger could sneak in an Oscar nomination for makeup, but that's about it) it's only fair that we give the year's most horrendous work its due. While this year's list of Razzie nods got a lot right (Grown Ups 2 leads the pack with a worthy eight nominations and Lindsay Lohan wound up in three categories for three different movies) some clunkers managed to slip through the cracks (how the hell did The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, Oz the Great and Powerful, R.I.P.D., Man of Steel and Gangster Squad go unscathed?). The "winners" of the Razzies are announced on Saturday, March 1 (that's right, one night before the Oscars) but we're picking the movies and performances that will win, that should win, and which ones were snubbed.
