I guess I can't really justify my hate for the writers or directors of these films without seeing them. Thankfully, I didn't pay to see this, so the creators dont' get a cent from me, nor do they deserve it.
The film looks cheap, the sets seem tiny and cramped. That wouldn't matter if the comedy was good but it's not even that it's terribly unfunny, it's just rushed and incomplete. Give five years and these will be about as funny as jokes about oh let's say...King James the Third. Remember him? Probably not unless your a buff at these type of things. These jokes aren't timed well, unless you are surprised after the fifth time they decide to throw the celebrity of the week into the pit, then I guess you might find it funny. I mean, I love silly humor, I still kill myself if I pop in Hot Fuzz or Monty Python or even some of the more weak Zucker-Abhrams-Zucker flicks. But in this one, even if these are really modern jokes about transformers, paris hilton, 300, and all the other hits but in this movie they have to explain where these jokes are coming from, insulting the audiences intelligence in the process. I mean, can we guess ourselves that the Penguin is from happy feet? or the Spider-man women in black is Venom from Spider-man 3? (And I didn't even see that movie!). Not to mention how many of these jokes are repeated, if you've seen the trailer for this movie you've honestly seen the jokes that lie within. It's just repeated endlessly!
I'm not even going to go into the homophobia and sexism in the movie which could've been a mildly overlooked factor if we had some good jokes to follow up. or at least well delivered ones.
Even if you are afraid of older films, and when I say old I mean even before 1990 for you kids, you are even better watching Scary Movie which wasn't even that great in it's process either. This movie's the equivilant of writing your essay on 2007 pop-culture 5 minutes before you have to hand it in. Big thumbs down.
