News & Interviews for Meet the Spartans
Critic Reviews for Meet the Spartans
The result in Meet the Spartans is less classic Mel Brooks than middling Best Week Ever.
This was the worst movie I've ever seen, so bad that I hesitate to label it a 'movie' and thus reflect shame upon the entire medium of film.
It's a MADtv or Saturday Night Live sketch dressed up in feature-length clothing. It's way too much of an OK thing. And the way-too-much-ness goes on and on.
Audience Reviews for Meet the Spartans
OOOOOK this is crap, pure crap, yet there are some scenes which are funny and do work quite well. The amazing thing is some scenes do look pretty good and are worthy of the actual film they are taking the piss out of, to a degree. But the main problem with some spoofs today is they are too spoofy/extreme, too utterly stupid, classic spoofs like 'Naked Gun' and 'Airplane' are daft but they still have a core story and you can follow it. Also the jokes are not just abstract and meaningless they do blend with the main idea and follow the story or match the sequences, these modern spoofs are just too ridiculous. As for Carmen Electra...getting old now and Maguire wasn't too bad actually, beats his 'Eastenders' shit and he does look the part amazingly!.
The piece of cinematic diarrhoea that is "Meet the Spartans" was not worth the effort it took to make this review. This is quite possibly the only movie i've seen where i've turned it off before I even got half way into the film. Looking back on the experience I wish I had never even started. I remember probably one laugh in what i'd call the worst parody film ever. And thats coming from someone who hasn't even seen the movie it's taking the mick out of (300).
Only five percent of the movie is an actual 300 parody, the other ninety five percent are stale pop culture references and unfunny comedy.
