Disaster Movie

To judge this movie on it's writing would be unfair, because apparently there is no script. Well, nothing that resembled a script became evident at any point during this abomination.

"Friedberg and Seltzer have unwittingly created a whole new genre of poor film making and un-funniness"

So that only leaves one thing to judge Disaster Movie on, and that's the content. I couldn't keep a straight face even while I tried to type that last sentence, because content wise this film is also lacking anything of substance.

So what do we really have here? I will tell you. Disaster Movie, aptly titled I might add, is a series of poorly adapted scenes parodying many popular movies from recent memory, some of which are still playing at cinemas. Batman, Iron man, Indiana Jones, The Hulk, Juno to name a few, but looking further back into the pop-culture timeline, it seems talent-less directors dickheads Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer think that Michael Jackson/paedophilia jokes are funny. How poor.

To label this movie as un-funny would be an insult to everything that is un-funny. In fact, Friedberg and Seltzer have unwittingly created a whole new genre of poor film making and un-funniness. Granted talent this low requires no wit, but I think they deserve credit for consistency. Looking at some of their previous efforts (I use that term loosely), Meet the Spartans, Date Movie, and Epic Movie, which even when combined can not even crack 10 points on Rotten Tomatoes, well that kind of says it all. Doesn't it?

One thing these hacks did get right though as eluded to earlier is the name of the movie. But then, the term 'Disaster' is normally only reserved for tragic events like Hurricane Katrina, The Malaysian Tsunami and so forth, so placing this movie in this category is an insult the memory of people lost in those real life disasters.

If you are one of these people still forking out your hard earned dollars to see Friedberg and Seltzer's tripe, please stop it now. I beg you. The only reason these morons will be able to continue to regurgitate sh*t and call it a film is if you keep paying for it. I was one of the lucky ones who didn't have to.

Consider that a warning. If you deliberately go to watch this movie, you will actually walk away dumber. This can have all sorts of affects on your life, your job, and in some cases your will to live. It is, all jokes aside, that bad.

And because I do not want the same pain I endured afflicted on others, I am breaking protocol here and have deliberately not provided any links to the movie web site and I wont embed a trailer. I will however give it a rating.

Steaming pile of sh*t out of 10.

Update: If you would like to show your support in getting these brainless thickheads out of the movie business, .

I reckon there's grounds for a class action law suite here. When you pay for a movie there is the reasonable expectation of entertainment that comes with handing over your money. Disaster Movie is so far removed from entertainment it defies belief. It's really as bad as Mikey described. No wait - its worse.

Bravo. I lasted about 30 minutes and I didn't pay either.

Scaving review! I think I will make a conscious effort to avoid this movie.
