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…
The comedy in this movie is timeless. Those Myspace jokes will live on forever.
The main problem with these kinds of films (apart from not being funny) is the amount of contempt they have for their characters. They are all usually self obsessed imbeciles who are the victims of wacky slapstick action. They are not shown any respect whatsoever. I know that may be seen as a silly criticism when we're dealing with a paper thin parody film, but I want to at least have one character that has some semblance of dignity. Take Marion Ross for instance. Actress from Happy Days, a television legend. There is a 3+ minute long scene dedicated to her farting, before being unceremoniously killed off. I hope she got a decent paycheck at the very least.
Epic movie, date movie, disaster movie, superhero movie......... I don't need to explain myself.
Film 237 of my 2015 500 Film Challenge
A lot better than Epic Movie, still garbage though.
Leslie Nielsen is always fun to watch.
Some fun cameos too.
Not brilliant, however its easy to see why people love this. A classic. Spoof with more effort put in and it works (better than Friedber and Seltzer that is)
Neben zwei, drei Lachern bietet dieser Film zusätzlich viel Fremdscham. Großer Blödsinn trotz einer nahrhaften Vorlage.
"Remember, with great power comes..."
"Well, I was gonna say bitches, but if you want to be a virgin for the rest of your life..."
I'm not much of a fan of the "Insert Genre Movie" series, but this is the exception. Maybe it's because the jokes have some actual craft to them?
To be fair, it's not entirely hilarious and there isn't a kneeslapper to be found, but it's a short and consistently amusing comedy with some very fun performances. The likes of Brent Spiner, Christopher McDonald, Leslie Nielsen and Jeffrey Tambour ensure that I could never hate this.
A so-so spoof of superhero movies, mostly of Spider-Man movies.
This is a mostly wretched film with some good ideas here and there. Not nearly as bad as other "parodies", but at least these guys actually -tried- to make this funny.
About what you'd expect (unfortunately).
I thought this movie was decent and kinda funny
This movie is so fucking stupid it's hilarious. It's honestly a lot better than anything after Scary Movie but that's not saying much. There are some jokes in here that had me crying of laughter and that says something especially with my taste but still it's so poorly made and so fake and effortless I can't commend it too much.
I'm also a piece of shit which is why I enjoy stupid movies like this sometimes.
These are films that I've seen over the years that I've either liked or loved, but A LOT of people…
