Not another list of the last five Marvel movies, but an attempt at creating The Superhero List To End All…
The greatest Superhero movie of all time! (not counting all the others)
The team behind Scary Movie takes on the comic book genre in this tale of Rick Riker, a nerdy teen imbued with superpowers by a radioactive dragonfly. And because every hero needs a nemesis, enter Lou Landers, aka the villainously goofy Hourglass.
Less of a disaster than Epic Movie, but still a crappily written slapstick cavalcade with hardly a single good joke to offer. Anyone who finds this hilarious is obviously a few fries short of a Happy Meal. Word of advice: avoid it by any means necessary. That is, unless dopey humor and a total lack of comedic timing happens to be your thing.
Sure, this is by the same team that brought us such "hits" as Scary Movie 4, but this deserves more credit than it's been given. A lot better and funnier than most film parodies these days. Even surprisingly clever. There are plenty of laugh out loud moments, like the now infamous Tom Cruise skit and the X-Men parody. I can't remember laughing out loud with most of todays parodies.
There's two films in here.
One really funny dumb one.
One really tasteless dumb one.
The quality definitely degrades to repetitive fart jokes and dick jokes halfway through, making the ending an unlikable trudge to get through, but the beginning is hilarious with plenty of laugh out loud moments. Mazin obviously lost his inspiration someway into this film.
Nielsen is fucking amazing though and makes every line he says funny, but Drake Bell is fucking annoying and I want to punch his overacting face. Yes, the film often tries too hard, yes, it gets very tasteless, but there are plenty of funny jokes in here enough for me to like it. I'll accept it.
Call this a guilty pleasure if…
Don't get me wrong, this is a very dumb movie. It's humor level is so inmature yet sometimes I actually do laugh at it. I don't understand why. And this is what makes the movie pretty entertaining is just watching it be ridiculous. But of course it does throw stuff in and the acting is pretty poor and it does get the superhero part of it down with some decent music and cinematography. But it's dumb. Lets just leave it at that.
Zucker and company have once again crafted a bulletproof spoof flick - this time lampooning superhero tropes with utmost precision and a terribly good taste for outrageous gags and merciless send-ups of everything and everyone. At times, it even reaches back to the preposterous slapstick found in "The Naked Gun" and "Airplane", and much to my surprise, it actually works! Drake Bell even has that same oblivious characteristic about him that made Leslie Nielsen a household name back in the 1980's, and he pulls it off with bravour.
Speaking of Nielsen, the man himself is to be found in the supporting cast, and surely enough his moments are the highlights of the film. That said, the rest of the film…
"Titanium blades; they cut through diamonds"
"I'm not wearing any diamonds"
The last funny spoof film.
Drake Bell has his charm. Leslie Nielsen is as funny as ever. Great cameos.
No continuity and very dated jokes.
Leslie Nielsen saves this Spider-man parody that is lacking in laughs and filmic passion though is occasionally entertaining amongst an assortment of bottom of the barrel gags.
Surprisingly, one of the better spoof movies of recent years. Is it just as dumb as, let's say, Scary Movie 4? Yes, but somehow Superhero Movie managed to make me laugh where Scary Movie 4 didn't. I don't know. There's some strange power to this movie that made me...like it...hmmmm.....
I'm embarrassed to say I've watched this.
In 1980, "Airplane" created a new style of filmmaking and started a wave of spoof movies that included a sequel, "The Naked Gun" and "Top Secret". Well, the spoofs are back but considerably less witty, and the blandly titled "Superhero Movie" is the latest.
It's actually produced by David Zucker, who was one of the original writers and directors of "Airplane", but the magic is definitely long gone. This is bad, but it is slightly better than the abysmal "Date Movie" and "Epic Movie". That's faint praise indeed.
Very little imagination went into this, and all of the jokes are easy and obvious. They're innuendo-filled, but not dirty enough to garner an "R" rating and keep the kids out of…
This actually did not totally suck, and for a movie like this, that's good enough for me :).
Noup, that film is bullshit. Not funny... sorry but this film is the best example for a bad, bad, bad trie to copy ,,scary movie''
"How can you say that? I've been like a father to you! I raised you, just like your father did! I believed in you, just like your father did! I slept with your mother, just like your father did!"
I expected to hate this film. I never really enjoyed any of the Scary Movie type spoofs with one or two exceptions. For me the slapstick comedy and toilet humour never really made me laugh, so i expected this movie to be trash. In reality, it wasn't actually that bad.
Superhero Movie is a spoof of Spider-Man. That's the entire premise. It's just Sam Rami's Spider-Man but stupid. I can't really rate this movie on its plot because it's just a…
Somewhere, some studio executive approved this and hasn't committed subaru for his crime.
There is something about super hero movies that I can never get enough of. I can even tolerate a bad…
And the rest, as they say, is history! They might not be the best films in your collection, but the…
