Audience Reviews for Meet the Spartans

  • Jul 18, 2016
    It's just as bad as you think, Very poor silly jokes, Poor acting but I did laugh a few times and the mocking of the slow motion scene from the film was great and really funny but apart from that it's another spoof film that nobody asked for.

    "Meet the Spartans" is trashy, crude, humorless, distasteful, and lacking any semblance of moral integrity. Basically, it's what you'd expect from a filmmaking duo like Friedberg and Seltzer, who are the two most untalented hacks in all of Hollywood. There is absolutely no reason to watch this film. None at all. Honestly, you'd have a better time burning your house down. Yes, really. Alright, maybe not that, but you get the point. It's bad. Really bad There isn't one redeeming quality about "Meet the Spartans" and that's that. I only wish that Flixster would allow for me to rate movies zero stars. I feel like half a star is too much.

    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).
