Now Streaming: Your Netflix Instant Alternatives To Parker, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, and Movie 43
In this collection of comedy vignettes, a bunch of stars gather to do unspeakable things to shock and amuse you. Dennis Quaid, Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, Halle Berry, Emma Stone and many, many more co-star.
By most accounts Movie 43 is downright unwatchable, full of gross-out gags and few laughs. Thankfully, Netflix has plenty of comedies to choose from, including the three star-stuffed ensemble comedies below that are wild, raunchy and plenty of fun.
Wet Hot American Summer (2001) This cult classic spoofs the camp-centered movies of the 1980s with a culmination of wacky clichéd plotlines like the geek gets the girl, outsiders save the day, opposites attract, and plenty of sex-related shenanigans. Like Movie 43 it boasts plenty of stars, but whether its Elizabeth Banks covered in BBQ sauce, Paul Rudd having a lunch tray tantrum, or Amy Poehler and Bradley Cooper having a talent show-related meltdown, none of these celebs have anything to be embarrassed about here. Michael Ian Black, Ken Marino, David Hyde Pierce, Janeane Garofalo, and Christopher Meloni co-star; David Wain directs.
A Good Old Fashioned Orgy (2011) Its title promises a wild ride, and its cast delivers. The story centers on a batch of thirty-something friends who decide to have one final summer blowout when their traditional summer retreat is put up for sale. With all the ragers the crew has throw, there's only one line left to cross: group sex. Jason Sudeikis, Leslie Bibb, Nick Kroll, Tyler Labine, Lucy Punch, Will Forte, and Martin Starr co-star; Alex Gregory and Peter Huyck write and direct.
Butter (2011) This overlooked comedy centers on a the quirky American subculture of competitive butter sculptors. Jennifer Garner stars as a domineering housewife who sees butter carving as her path to the White House. But her plans to dominate the competition are threatened by a revenge seeking stripper (Olivia Wilde) and an orphaned butter-carving prodigy (Yara Shahidi). Alicia Silverstone, Rob Corddry, Kristen Schaal, Ty Burrell, and Hugh Jackman co-star; Jim Field Smith directs.
