2013 Guide Analysis: "A huge number of stars have come together for this R-rated anthology comedy made up of short stand alone segments (ala "Kentucky Fried Movie") held together by a unifying storyline. Said storyline follows two teen stoners and their younger geek brother trying to find the most banned movie in the world on the Internet, but each time they get close someone tries to stop them.

One sketch has Gerard Butler as a perverse and foul-mouthed leprechaun kidnapped by Johnny Knoxville and Seann William Scott who want to steal his pot of gold. Another has Halle Berry as a career driven woman set up to take the fall for corporate embezzlement by a sexy college friend. The most anticipated is "Robin's Big Speed Date," a follow-up to the 2006 comedy short "Robin's Big Date" in which Batman's sidekick Robin (Justin Long) tries to go on a date without The Bat-Man (Sam Rockwell) tagging along and ruining the evening. Long will reprise his role with Jason Sudeikis taking over as Batman.

Other cast members include Elizabeth Banks, Kristen Bell, Jimmy Bennett, Leslie Bibb, Kate Bosworth, Bobby Cannavale, Kieran Culkin, Josh Duhamel, Anna Faris, Richard Gere, John Hodgman, Hugh Jackman, Aasif Mandvi, Stephen Merchant, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Chloë Moretz, Liev Schreiber, Tony Shalhoub, Emma Stone, Uma Thurman, Patrick Warburton, Naomi Watts and Kate Winslet. The list of directors who contributed sketches is also impressive including Elizabeth Banks, Steven Brill, Steve Carr, Rusty Cundieff, James Duffy, Griffin Dunne, Patrik Forsberg, James Gunn, Bob Odenkirk and Brett Ratner."
