Disaster Movie is the latest and most slap-dash of the movie parodies to atrophy out of the Scary Movie franchise.

The result is a series of extraneous, deplorably unfunny scenes and sketches stitched together in completely haphazard fashion.

Rushed into production with no better drape for its threadbare gags than Cloverfield, this carpet-fouling mongrel of a movie no more deserves release than do anthrax spores.

Disaster Movie, the latest disposable parody of disposable Hollywood movies, has a shelf life of about five minutes, tops.

Why would you watch a bad movie about better movies, when you could just rent the originals instead?

Perhaps they'll eventually make one called Spoof Movie, which would brilliantly parody the genre by being consistently funny.

No one spoofed in the film -- yes, including Jessica Simpson -- is more worthy of derision than the people responsible for making it.

Since many of the targets (Cloverfield, Hancock, Kung Fu Panda) already have a cheeky self-consciousness, the comedy rarely seems more than a hasty patchwork of cheap-shot allusions.

Embarrassment. It's a feeling you should get used to, Freidberg and Seltzer. May you never befoul another cinema with your grotesque comic abortions.

No one expects sophisticated wit from this type of movie, but would it be too much to ask for more than a chuckle every 10 minutes?

Seldom has a pic been more appropriately titled than Disaster Movie, yet another frantically unfunny free-form farce from the unfortunately prolific writing-directing team of Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer.

It's too easy to say Disaster Movie deserves its title, but why put more effort into trashing it than the filmmakers did into writing it?
