Superhero Movie

Critics Consensus

Superhero Movie is not the worst of the spoof genre, but relies on tired gags and lame pop culture references all the same.

  • There are a few lively bits, and one joke with an edge: a slap at Stephen Hawking and his computer-drone voice. Mostly, though, this is super-lame.

  • With jokes packed as tightly together as sliced cheese, the flick's comedy axiom seems to be: Never give the audience a pause to second-guess their laughter

    March 31, 2008 | Rating: A-
  • It's a bit late in the game for Superhero Movie, which was never going to fly, and barely crawls.

  • It looks for all the world as if writer/director Craig Mazin took the screenplay for Spider-Man, propped it up next to his MacBook, and just went through it, inserting fart gags, pratfalls and the lamest of jokes.

  • The very act of writing critically about Superhero inspires something of an existential crisis -- no one likely to turn out for it is reading this review, and anybody reading this review is probably not inclined to see it under any circumstances.

    This movie was funny...Scary movie writen all over it. You don't know what you get when you watch a movie that says "From 2 of the 5 writers of Scary Movie"....It could be crap. It could be good...It was good this time. Not good like good...but...funny...

    Unattractive but entertaining, with some very common things in these "movie parody," but somewhat acceptable.

    Yes, this is not a Seltzer and Friedberg film, so it's not as bad as "Epic Movie" or "Meet the Spartans". But it's still pretty bad.

    Superhero Movie was not a good film, let me just clear that right now. But compared to other spoof films such as Epic Movie or Disaster Movie, its much better. I laughed at many points in the film because of the superhero jokes and just pure idiotic jokes. I enjoyed the depiction of Stephen Hawking as a sick minded creep. Drake Bell and Leslie Nielson were good choices, but the rest of the cast was just pathetic. But the film is overall just another dumb spoof film that should've never been made.
