Despite all the scatological high jinks on display, most of the satire is affectionate rather than merciless.
| Original Score: B-
Raunchy blockbuster spoof is over the top, dumb.
| Original Score: 1/5
It plays out like an overlong Comedy Central skit lurching for the next laugh without any remorse for the gross misfires in between.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Maybe these movies are popular, but it seems they just keep getting more inane with each variation on the theme.
| Original Score: 2/5
A painful regurgitation of memorable moments from recent Hollywood blockbusters, the spoof film Epic Movie is almost entirely devoid of laughs.
| Original Score: 0/4
Sucks like a black hole.
The parody is not a bad genre, as the early Zucker films showed us. It's just been put in the control of bad filmmakers.
This one is a typical time-waster for teenagers or others with disposable income and underdeveloped taste.
This movie is like a sneeze of bad jokes splattering its germs into the air we all breathe.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
There's very little that's Epic about Epic Movie. While the film has plenty of fun, it's little more than a late-night comic sketch stretched to feature length.
| Original Score: 2/4
Go rent Blazing Saddles instead.
...juvenile at best and flat-out lame at worst...
click to read review (though I have no idea why you'd want to)
Desperately unamusing comedy that lurches clumsily from one tedious spoof to the next, under the mistaken impression that just referencing a film is enough to get laughs.
Epic in its crapness.
The most excruciating, unfunny film you'll see this year... if not your entire lifetime.
Next to Epic Movie and Date Movie, the Scary Movies are French cuisine.
...another perfect storm of not funny.
Friedberg and Seltzer's most staggering achievement is rendering "Epic Movie" free from laughs.
