Epic Movie is not the dumbest movie I have ever seen… but it comes pretty close. Perhaps I would have enjoyed this more if there had of been less commercial breaks. Go! seemed to be more time spent showing commercials than the movie itself. Is there anyone who is really thinking of using their Mastercard debit card to go to New York to see Katy Perry? I guess that sums up just who this movie was made for, people stupid enough to listen to horrible pop music.

Maybe I should further elaborate. This is meant to parody every action/fantasy movie made in the last decade but it is all hit and miss… Actually it’s all miss as the gags aren’t funny at all, just stupid. Unfortunately this movie has made a shitload of money, which means that we will be getting more atrocities like this from Friedberg and Seltzer in the future. Sigh! Why bother watching this crap when there are good parody films out there like Mel Brook’s Young Frankenstein?
