I was going to do this review, and try to make fun of a serious movie. But after seeing this, I decided I would try to take a serious look at what was supposed to be a funny movie(keywords: supposed to be).
Disaster Movie is the upcoming addition to the slew of generically-themed spoof movies from writer/directors Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer. These two people are responsible for Date Movie, Epic Movie and Meet the Spartans. They also took the Scary Movie franchise and somehow made it even worse than it already was. Who thought you could take something created by the Wayans brothers and actually make it worse than before?
There most recent movie was, "Meet the Spartans," which got a 2.4/10 rating on IMDb. That should make you think, "Wow, this movie kinda sucks." Well, you would be mistaken. I think that the presidential election was funnier than this. Actually, I'm pretty sure there were more people laughing during the election than during this movie.
When I was watching the movie, I got through about ten minutes before I wanted my money back. Then I realised that I didn't pay for the movie. I wanted momentary compensation for a movie I didn't even pay to see.
Most of the criticism comes from a released trailer before the movie. These things are supposed to have the best parts in them, but I guess they were going for, "Lets put the worst parts in here so the movie will be better when they see it" approach.
On one hand, you have to respect their ability to spoof movies before they even come out. But then again, maybe if they spent time writing it might not fail so incredibly bad.
When I started writing this, I thought maybe, just maybe, I could somehow sway even one person who worked at Lionsgate to make them realize they're polluting theaters with this garbage. Then I saw the other movies they have coming out. A Dane Cook romantic comedy and Nicholas Cage in Bangkok Dangerous. I now realize how futile my attempt was.
