Most dislikes without being on a top list = most worthless movie ever.
On the list 'IMDb Bottom 100'. Enough said.
"Like it or not, we're all in this!" And after 4 minutes: "I'm sick of this!" That's not me, that's the characters of Epic Movie accidentally commenting on this wretched parody movie from the makers of Scary Movie etc. The basic plot is The Chronicle of Narnia's, with random jokes from other "epic movies", which in this case includes such disparate films as X-Men, Pirates of the Carribean, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The DeVinci Code, and ... Nacho Libre? That's long been Friedberg and Seltzer's problem, you see: They don't know how parody works. And so we're treated to bad sketch comedy that might work in 7-minutes bites on SNL, taking shots at things that are already parodies (Nacho Libre, Snakes on a Plane), with gratuitous hip hop video moments where buxom girls writhe around and more poop and pee jokes that I can count. There's low-hanging fruit, and then there's just picking up the fruit that's rotting on the ground. Truly aiming for the lowest common denominator audience, I just don't know who these films are for. To have a context for these patchwork monsters, you have to go see a LOT of movies, but if you're that much of a cinephile, you'll find the filmmaking crass, boring and execrable. The DVD includes a directors' commentary track in which they riff on an entirely different (and fictional) epic film, an unfunny joke that gets tedious REAL fast. If you knew Epic Movie wasn't worth talking about, don't bother with the extras guys.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
