View Full Version : Meet the Spartans

I want to see this!


Ok, that wasn't the trailer I saw. The trailer I saw focused a lot more on the Sparta part, which was great. Probably wait for it to be on DVD.

Those American parody movies haven't been funny since the first Aeroplane movie.

This will suck.

This will suck.


And yeah, remember 'epic movie'? 'date movie'? 'scary movie'?

Not so excited anymore are you?

Edit: *Maybe 'Men in tights'. Maybe

Agreed on the Spaceballs.

HELMET: Who made that man a gunner?
MAJOR: I did, sir. He's my cousin.
HELMET: Who is he?
SANDURZ: He's an Asshole, sir.
HELMET: I know that. What's his name?
SANDURZ: That is his name, sir. Asshole, Major Asshole.
HELMET: And his cousin?
SANDURZ: He's an Asshole, too, sir. Gunner's-mate, 1st Class, Philip Asshole.
HELMET: How many Assholes we got on this ship, anyhow?
ALL: Yo!
HELMET: I knew it. I'm surrounded by Assholes. Keep firing, Assholes!

Men in Tights was meh, though.

Parodies need to be good on their own. I like Mafia!, Men in Tights, Blazing Saddles, Nake Gun, etc.

The difference between those and these shitty parodies of today is that the new shit is trying to FORCE FEED you their rotten lulz.

The jokes were just as over-the-top, but they had style and they weren't so obvious. Hell, even the obvious jokes in those movies were better.

Look, my point is, people who make those movies need to be shot.

Epic Movie laughs: 3
Date Movie laughs: 2 (the greek restaurant sign and the stunt man on the motorcycle)

I'm thinking Meet the Spartans might make it to 4 in a 1hr and 30min comedy.

Save your money and go see Juno.

This movie is going to suck. For all of these __ Movies, they just slap together a plot by taking some famous scenes from movies from __ genre and make them "zany", throw in some "pop culture" references and then add some shit jokes. It's almost as if manatees write these flaming shits of movies.
