'Movie 43': Exclusive First Look!
''In this, Kate Winslet's on a date with Hugh Jackman, and she finds out he has quite a funny and strange birth defect — during dinner,'' says Peter Farrelly, one of the sprawling ensemble comedy's 12 co-directors. ''It's a blind date. It's her trying to navigate the waters.''
''This guy, Anna Faris' real-life husband Chris Pratt, meets the perfect woman, the modern day Donna Reed, played by Anna. She's sweet, she's kind, and she just has this thing: she wants him to poop on her,'' says Farrelly. ''That frosting is frosting, and it's also her thing. Eh eh?''
''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.''
''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.''
''Emma Stone and Kieran Culkin are a couple that's broken up, and meet again in a supermarket,'' says Farrelly. ''They cut through all the bulls--- in a relationship, but unbeknownst to her, they're on a loudspeaker. They start getting very intimate. It's really funny.''
''Seann William Scott and Johnny Knoxville are best friends who had a falling out because Johnny was with [Seann's] girl one night,'' says Farrelly. ''To make it up, Johnny delivers Seann a pissed-off, angry, violent leprechaun, played by Gerard Butler. Johnny is trying to tickle him with a feather to get him to sneeze fairy dust to prove to Seann it's a leprechaun.''
''Naomi Watts and [real-life partner] Liev Schreiber are homeschooling their son, played by Jeremy Allen White, who's in Shameless, and they think schooling is about the entire experience, including being hazed, bullied, demeaned,'' says Farrelly. ''Besides making him study, they're torturing him. This is one of my favorites, and so funny.''
''Leslie Bibb, Justin Long, and Jason Sudeikis are all superheroes who go to a speed dating party,'' says Farrelly. ''Besides speed dating, you find out a lot of backstory relationship issues among them. They have long memories, and are deeply offended. Jason Sudeikis plays a real bad guy, super funny, a real d---. Uma Thurman is in it too.''
