  1. Epic Movie is just timely enough to conclude with a wink and a nod to Borat. I only wish that it had been bold enough to go Borat on HIM.

    The real problem with Epic Movie is that while it does a decent job imitating films, it never bothers to make fun of or have fun with them, which is what Friedberg and Seltzer did so well with "Scary Movie."

    The cinematic equivalent of a tapeworm, this delivers few laughs beyond the initial chuckles of recognition. Seltzer and Friedberg (who also directed) have another script in development called "Raunchy Movie"; apparently one idea they haven't yet considered is "Watchable Movie."

    Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer must be stopped. For the last two years, this filmmaking team has created a series of spoof movies so feeble, shoddy and unfunny that they may be part of a diabolical, "Manchurian Candidate"-like plot to stunt the intellectual development of American adolescents.
  5. A monumentally unfunny time-waster.
  6. 12
    This spoof of "The Da Vinci Code," "Pirates of the Caribbean," "Harry Potter," "The Chronicles of Narnia" and other recent blockbusters piles up sex gags, toilet gags and make-you-gag gags.
  7. 0
    It's an ersatz comedy filled with unconvincing celebrity look-alikes and tone-deaf parodies. Only the desperation and cynicism feel authentic.

    There was no plot, no meaning, no movie really. But if you saw at least 5 of the 200 movies it makes fun of, you will find yourslef laughing There was no plot, no meaning, no movie really. But if you saw at least 5 of the 200 movies it makes fun of, you will find yourslef laughing pretty hard. I had seen basically every movie it made fun of, except maybe Nacho Libre...and I laughed very hard. It all comes down to how many movies you have seen that it makes fun of. Expand

Epic Lauren -- When did they start letting retards use the interweb? Even "daft" ones like you? This movie is not daft and it is not fab. Epic movie is the kind of BM that wakes you up in the middle of the night before an important meeting early the next day: It is unplanned for crap that ruins everything that follows. Horrible, horrible movie. Expand
