Brief Synopsis: "The film is composed of multiple comedy shorts presented through an overarching segment titled "The Pitch", in which Charlie Wessler, a mad screenwriter, is attempting to pitch a script to film executive Griffin Schraeder. After revealing several of the stories in his script, Wessler becomes agitated when Schraeder dismisses his outrageous ideas, and he pulls a gun on him and forces him to listen to multiple other stories before making Schraeder consult his manager, Bob Mone, to purchase the film."

Bryan Lienesch62 - '43' isn't an anthology so much as uber-raunchy episode of 'SNL'. And just like with SNL, it's just looking to make you laugh. Some jokes miss, more, though, hit, but if you're looking for a plot or a story you've come to the wrong movie.
