Nothing more than a 90-minute barrage of unfunny jokes without the hindrance of a pesky plot or character development to get in the way.

Depressingly, these magpie parodies are so cheap to produce they can't fail to make money -- which probably means this interminable franchise is far from over.

Deflating these images only works when they've overstayed their welcome in the cultural landscape, and making fun of the rejects doesn't have the same punch.
June 14, 2013
The pomposity of big-budget B-movies can certainly be taken down a notch, but Friedberg and Seltzer rely too much on trailer moments for their broad comedy.
June 14, 2013
Disaster Movie is the latest and most slap-dash of the movie parodies to atrophy out of the Scary Movie franchise.
June 14, 2013
There's no nice way to say this, so I'll just say it: Writer/directors Friedberg and Seltzer are a scourge. They're a plague on our cinematic landscape, a national shame, a danger to our culture.

This might have been edited down to 20 minutes of entertaining film. Maybe one day the team involved will start employing editors and produce something we can all look forward to.

It's juvenile and crude, and it ranks right up there as one of the worst films of the year.

Disaster Movie is one doo-doo that can't be undid, homeskillet.

[A] budget-less pastiche of sub-Mad-magazine parodies culled from the trailers of almost every summer movie.

Rarely has a movie had a more appropriate title.

A poorly staged, entirely laugh-free big screen exercise that, despite its name, is not really a genre spoof at all, but rather merely an excuse to (attempt to) poke fun at Hollywood movies from this calendar year.

It's a merry, reckless mess, like a blender that gets revved up too high and spews everything out all over the countertops.

Indeed a disaster first, and a movie barely.

The "jokes" are limp and pathetic or stillborn, timing is ignored, performances are a not-so-giddy mug-fest. Audiences are left wondering when the freshman cast is going to learn the rudiments of performing.

A dumb, dumb film, to be sure, but also undeniably funny in more spots than a right-thinking, mature adult person feels comfortable admitting.

Honestly, if the makers of this ever got serious about making web-based comedy, I reckon that they would absolutely rock it.

Since they have so little material to work with in the first place, Friedberg and Seltzer flog each joke well beyond its limits.
