There's something I've been debating with myself for some time and it's something to which I think Movie 43 has helped me to come to a conclusion. The issue is one of artistic merit. If your intention is to make something deliberately offensive and you offend your audience, can this be considered an artistic success?

In the case of the Crank films I was conflicted, because I hated those films but felt like they wanted me to and couldn't decide if that was something I should be applauding them for. In the case of Movie 43, I have decided that no, this is not an artistic success because being deliberately offensive is really fucking easy.

I could go and fart loudly in a church right now or go to the park and kick a dog and achieve the same artistic goals as Movie 43 (and possibly even get more laughs).

As the old saying goes, it's not big and it's not clever. It's so easy to offend people, we do it by accident all the time, so art that sets out to do it deliberately isn't exactly plumbing the depths of emotional evocation.
