Disaster Movie
Laugh? We never started...

Plot
More spoofing from the makers of Epic Movie and Meet The Spartans...


Review
Disaster Movie

If Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer are to be believed, all you need to make a great spoof is a list of summer blockbusters and a copy of Heat. With a constant stream of pop culture icons stepping in front of the camera saying their name and then either farting, burping or getting crushed by a falling cow then hilarity is certain to ensue… right? Wrong, wrong, wrong. Portraying Amy Winehouse as a sabre-toothed alcoholic isn’t funny; subjecting the audience to a protracted “sexy” wrestling match isn’t funny; saying that Sarah Jessica Parker looks like a bloke isn’t funny. Puerile beyond belief and a possible hazard to brain cells, the only thing this offensive dross gets right is the title.


Verdict
A horrific waste of time, money and oxygen.

Excrutiating

The only movie I have ever walked out of in my entire life. Still the worst movie I've EVER seen. It pulsates pure, concentrated shitness. Only watch if you are blind, deaf and dumb and even then...watch with caution. ... More

Pathetic

This is so shit and anyone who wants to see a terrible acting film and extremely UNfunny film just watch this. The only funny part that slightly amused me is the guy from High School Musical looking like a fully grown 40 year-old. It seems as though they purposelly made this film shitty. If they didn't, they are over the top dumb and can't make a friggin movie. The only good ones they did was the first Scary Movie and the second Scary Movie... Don't waste your time on this fucking movie... It re... More

RE: Undeniably the worst film I've ever seen

There is only one benefit to piracy and that is watching BAD movies for free. The best way to describe Disaster Movie is the word BAD or pointless. The film is so extreme in the negative way, calling is shit is too positive for it. The film so negative, it was depressing and that bad. I wanted to slam the film to ground but now I want to sand paper my wrist to the bone and rub dog shit into my eyes. The whole concept of this movie is to make fun of big or successful films this year but it j... More

RE:

If this was just one or two movies that got tossed in the can I could bear it but there's been fucking four of them now! And people pay to watch it! Surely after three of these kind of movies people would realise how bad this is! These films are made by money grabbing cunts who laugh all the way to the bank and don't give a shit about Cinema! I don't have the most sophisticated humour ever known to man. Hell I get a few sniggers out of Scary Movie 4! But This is the kind of money grabbing soul ... More

Saw it in the sneak preview yesterday: It`s a good thing the creators knew the film they were making was crap and that they given it this name. Because this truly is a disaster. Eighty minutes long without one decent joke. Painfully unfunny, really lame jokes. It really doesn`t make any sense at all. This doesn`t even deserves the name film... /b] ... More

RE: Ha.

L: CORLEONE This film made £925,000 last weekend in the UK. Worked out at an average of £7 a ticket, it means 130,000 people went to watch it. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE UNIVERSE? he government should wait outside the cinema to see who comes out of that screening, as if they enjoyed the film, and if so initiate some kind of sterilization proccess.

At least they got the name right...

Meet the Spartans was bad, epic movie was worse, so what could possibly be in line for the next spoof movie? Well, disaster movie is basically Epic Movie 2, but everyone dies. But this movie doesn't have the right to kill people. Enchanted may have been a shocking movie, but it wipes Disater move clean. Glen Ferris got it right : A waste of oxygen. AD ... More
