London, Jan. 30(ANI): Halle Berry's new film 'Movie 43' is under attack from critics who have branded the flick as the "Citizen Kane of awful."

Harsh reviews are pouring in from the professional film connoisseurs and regular crowds despite promotional claims that the movie features the largest number of stars "ever assembled" in one flick, the Daily Mail reported.

Due to the star-studded cast, which also includes actors like Kate Winslet, Gerard Butler and Richard Gere, many had expected it to be a guaranteed hit.

Instead, the 6-million-dollar movie opened at 7th place this weekend bringing in a dismal 5 million dollars in the US and marking one of the worst wide-release openings for many of the actors.

Critic Peter Howell of the Toronto Star crowned the movie as the "worst film ever" saying that it was the 'biggest waste of talent in cinema history.'

Critic Richard Roeper of the Chicago Sun Times said that he did not "see a redeeming molecule" throughout the movie.

"How many directors does it take to screw in a star-studded piece of aggressive stupidity and call it a movie? An even dozen, and there is no punch line," wrote Sheri Linden of The Los Angeles Times.

As of Tuesday morning, the film has a favourability rating of 4 percent on the review site Rotten Tomatoes, putting it below other notable flops like 'Step Up 2 the Streets,' 'Gigli,' 'Glitter' and 'Chairman of the Board.'

'Movie 43' just managed to rank above 'Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star,' and 'Transylmania,' which both had favorability ratings of 0 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. (ANI)
