Pity [the producers] couldn't find anything funny to do once they'd built the sets, and found dead ringers for Anna Paquin, Paris Hilton, P. Diddy and Jack Black.

Bad taste and worse jokes abound. Epic Movie's humor isn't tired; it's comatose.

Because nothing in the universe is funnier than watching Jack Sparrow or Willy Wonka break out into hip-hop gyrations.

A painful regurgitation of memorable moments from recent Hollywood blockbusters, the spoof film Epic Movie is almost entirely devoid of laughs.

It plays out like an overlong Comedy Central skit lurching for the next laugh without any remorse for the gross misfires in between.

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.

Can a picture really be considered a parody if it merely parrots rather than satirizes its source material?

On January 26th, I have witnessed what is assured to be the worst film I will behold all year.

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

Friedberg and Seltzer are nothing if not intrepid and they jump right into his Willy Wonka and his Captain Jack Sparrow, landing with such a leaden thud that they should be nursing their wounds for the rest of their lives.

Raunchy blockbuster spoof is over the top, dumb.

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

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

Sucks like a black hole.

At times there is no visible difference between this and the fictitious film ***, the two-hour, single-take, Academy Award-winning shot of a flatulent gluteus maximus from Mike Judge's Idiocracy.

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.

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.
