  • Summary: How many superheroes does it take to save the world? The creators of The Naked Gun and Scary Movie answer this question in hysterical David Zucker fashion with the uproarious comedy Superhero Movie. Meet Rick Riker. He's young, he's cool, and he's got superpowers. Now, if he only knew how to use them... But the world is in danger, and no one is safe when Zucker and the gang--headed by the hilarious cast of Drake Bell, Leslie Nielsen, Tracy Morgan, Pamela Anderson, Regina Hall, and many others--take aim at some of the biggest blockbusters of our time, including Spider-Man, Batman, X-Men, and Fantastic Four, to name a few. On March 28, learning to fly, spinning a web, and busting a gut has never been this much fun. (The Weinstein Company) Expand

    Undiscriminating comedy fans hungering for the High School High of superhero parodies need look no further.

    Puerile and idiotic it may be, but Superhero Movie is nonetheless smarter than most of its lowbrow brethren in the Hollywood sub-sub-category known as the spoof movie.

    How can you tell the target age for Superhero Movie is exactly 13 1/2 years? Because most of the jokes are Internet-related.

    The gags are consistently weak, though actor Miles Fisher turns in a hair-raising impression of Tom Cruise.

    What's shocking about Superhero Movie is not that it's been advertised to death on Nickelodeon to impressionable children, but that it's a completely on-the-nose satire of "Spider-Man.”

    This super-powered spoof just doesn't fly.
  7. Reviewed by: Ken Fox
    This abysmal "Spider-Man" satire has more in common with the lamentable spate of "Epic" and "Date Movies" than Zucker and Nielsen's truly funny "Naked Gun" series.

    This film is the greatest comedy movie I've seen. It's so funny, I can't stop laughing. If you like a kind of that comedy, don't miss this movie. Believe me! Expand

    I'm not one to like spoof movies other than the first 2 Scary Movies. Superhero movie I think is a great spoof film. It's one of few other spoof movies that really focuses on plot and character development. Not to mention the jokes. Adding Leslie Nielsen was the right move to make a funny Spoof film. Expand

    Fill of corny jokes - which are funny! I don't understand how its reviews are bad, it's supoosed to rip of Spidermarn and make it funny. It does that. Good to see a great 'Movie' film! Expand

    Had a couple of genuinely funny gags but a lot of tasteless ones. Could have deviated from the Spiderman storyline just a little bit... Pretty forgettable all up. Expand

    The only thing this movie has going for it is that it quickly fades into obscurity not too long after you have seen it. Not the atrocity Meet The Spartans is, but still quite bad and uninspired. Expand

    Sucky plot and dumb comedy....Rather watch Scary Movie 1 over and over again before I watch this again.

    How many of these ridiculously bad Zucker films can be put out. What is an outrage is that there's young, dedicated film makers out there with great ideas who only need a financial break to get their work put out - and yet we get these kind of cornball movies that open big, and within 3 weeks fade into obscurity. For me, the only good film of this type was Scary Movie - which is the first. Every single one of its predecessors STINK, just like this one. Expand
