Epic Movie Review

Image for Epic Movie

Pirate Of The Caribbean, The Chronicles Of Narnia and The Da Vinci Code are all set to spoofed in this new goofball comedy from the writers of Scary/Date Movie. Expect Satire silly-style.


It’s hard to judge what’s more depressing: that this movie ever got made or that it ended up topping the US box office. From the people behind Scary Movies 1 to please-God-let-it-stop, Epic Movie follows the same formula with its blurred focus on the blockbuster. The Da Vinci Code, X-Men, Pirates and Narnia are just some of the lampooned movies, only there are bizarre sideswipes at non-epic targets like Borat, and the ‘satire’ amounts to nothing more than, say, Nacho Libre eating nachos (hilarious!).

With a cast consisting primarily of out-of-work impressionists and lookalikes, you have to wonder why Jennifer Coolidge, Crispin Glover and, hell, even Carmen Electra signed on. A disaster of epic proportions.

Epic in its crapness.
