Epic Movie Reviews

Austin Chronicle

Friedberg and Seltzer are completely tone-deaf when it comes to the art of film parody, conjuring none of the adolescent brilliance of Airplane! or even the good-natured irony of 2001's Not Another Teen Movie.

When you start thinking that the Taco Bell pitchwoman is perhaps too good for the material, you know the script has some serious problems.

It is just too bad that the film isn't called Miniscule Movie because that is a better description of this epic-less piece of garbage.

Funnier than Date Movie, not as funny as Scary Movie 4. (Is) a "free" page on MySpace the new indicator that (a film is) pretty cheap all around?

It could be worse, but that's not saying much.

Epic Movie is a comedy that is so spectacularly bad in so many ways that it's almost awe-inspiring -- at every point in the film, every creative choice seems to have been made for precisely the wrong reason.

A laugh-deprived misadventure.

Despite all the scatological high jinks on display, most of the satire is affectionate rather than merciless.

Woefully unimaginative, obvious and numbing...Epic Movie is lazy and toothless in its inability to satirize material that doesn't need the hysterical microscope.

The makers of Epic Movie have just discovered the existence of urine, vomit and pimples, and declared them hilarious.

How can you make fun of such self-aware subjects as Borat or Johnny Depp's winkingly fey Jack Sparrow? Who hasn't already noticed Tom Hanks' bad Da Vinci Code hair? And really, is there anything left to say about Samuel L. Jackson and those snakes?

Everything you loved about the past couple of years' blockbusters, only much less entertaining and with a lot more urination.

An amateur-hour game of Spot That Reference, intended for people who crack up simply at the mention of anything topical.

Epic Movie strays so far from the solid fundamentals of filmmaking that it calls the very foundation of humor into question.

The latest spoof from knucklehead screenwriting team and first-time directors Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer.

The film never becomes anything of its own, however; it merely jumps from spoof to spoof, often with tenuous transitions.

You know a movie parody is in trouble when you can't quite figure out the frame of reference for the parody.

I've always loved parody. It's too bad that garbage like this is what passes for it these days.

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.

The cinematic equivalent of a tapeworm, this delivers few laughs beyond the initial chuckles of recognition.
