Critic Reviews

Consensus: In an attempt to parody rom-com cliches, Date Movie ultimately makes a mockery of itself, with juvenile toilet humor and empty pop culture references.
  • [Mocks] movies that were much funnier than this one. More...
  • These are sight gags best appreciated with a blindfold. More...
  • You have to be hungry for comedy that's salty and loud, that hits your palate with all the delicacy of hot grease. If you're in that mood, a handful of these jokes will likely be just what you crave. More...
  • This crass drag of a dud at best manages to elicit just a couple of half-hearted chuckles over the course of its 80-minute allotment. More...
  • It's kind of amazing that a joke-a-second comedy like Date Movie doesn't contain a single laugh, but what's there has been so thoroughly focus-grouped and market-tested that no joy escapes the vacuum. More...
  • The targets here are Hollywood's bubbleheaded romantic comedies, but director Aaron Setzer (who co-wrote the script with Jason Friedling) doesn't satirize the genre's familiar tropes so much as merely re-stage familiar scenes. More...
  • A lame pastiche of Hollywood romances. More...
  • If their goal was to make a spoof film with heart, the end result has an irregular beat at best. More...
  • It takes a certain gall to pass off mere references as jokes. More...
  • It's not enough to just make the reference. You've got to make something funny out of the reference. More...

  • Spoof movie encompassing rom coms.
  • Date Movie is an awful, unfunny comedy that is crude, vulgar and relies on gross-out moments to try and create its humor. The film fails entirely and...
  • I didn't know Kill Bill was a date movie.
  • Saw it, but don't remember too much from it. A clue that it was pretty bad.
  • Pretty funny. A few hearty laughs now and again. Clever writing.
  • I hated this, I laughed once, but then it got dumber by the second. I really hated this movie.
  • I cannot deny that it does have some good laughs. But that is very limited. It is an awful movie with loads of so-called jokes. Grant's...
  • Based on all the well known Rom-coms, this does have to be one of the worst spoof films out there. Not that I had great expectations, but it was on...
  • one of a kind film.
