The fact is, this movie is just not funny.
| Original Score: 1/5
It's not enough to just make the reference. You've got to make something funny out of the reference.
This thing doesn't have a script. It has a year's worth of "In Touch Magazine" thrown into a blender with some crotch humor and a joke about beating up a homeless man as a way to spend a romantic evening.
| Original Score: C-
There are stereotypes in romantic comedies and it would seem that a satire of those stereotypes could make for a very funny movie. But that would require actual thought and wit.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
The kind of spoof that doesn't so much "poke fun" at its targets as it does "lazily reference" them.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Everything's reduced to an inane fart or ejaculation joke.
| Original Score: 1/4
far less smart and often less funny than the films it ridicules.
There's not a single laugh to be had.
This would-be spoof of romantic comedies falls prey to the misconception -- common in modern American humor -- that to make reference to something is the same thing as parodying it.
| Original Score: D-
Take your date to this laugh-less stinker and it may be your last.
| Original Score: 0/5
It's just February, and we've already found a film worse than BloodRayne. I didn't think it would happen that fast, but here we are.
| Original Score: F
It's a perfect storm of not funny.
Friedberg and Seltzer's philosophy seems to be - make fun of other movies first, worry about our own movie second. Of course, that means their movie is no good
| Original Score: 1/10
If a film could suffer from Attention Deficit Disorder, Date Movie would be it.
| Original Score: D
The movie sputters along on borrowed gags without improving them.
| Original Score: 0/4
It's hard to see through the utter mess that is Date Movie enough to evaluate its acting, but Hannigan seems to be at least serviceable.
Date Movie takes already funny movies and makes them completely unfunny.
Basically, this drawn-out vehicle is the equivalent of a defective whoopie cushion without the funny sounds...plays like a string of cheesy late night sketches.
Get it? It's just like that one scene you saw in that one movie, but with poop!
It's loud and obnoxious, but too full of itself to be interesting and not sober enough to be truly offensive. (Unrated)
