Spoof genre's been dead for a while now. It's no surprise. Personally, I liked "Date Movie" a lot. I watched it again the other day on Cinemax HD. It kinda goes back to the old school spoof with silly innuendos and just outrageous humour, not too over the top a la "Not Another Teen Movie". It was flat in parts, but I thought the good outweighed the bad.
As far as "Epic Movie" goes, I've seen 2 trailers. My hopes aren't high for it, as the writers also penned "Spy Hard", my least favorite Leslie Nielsen movie, but I'll sttill give it a look when it hits DVD. Honestly, it couldn't be much worse than "Scary Movie 4", which I didn't think was terrible.
I'll give any spoof movie a try. The trailer has a couple funny parts. I'll see it before judging.
The theme of this one is obviously trying not to get any "Scary Movie 3 was crap because it spoofed 8 Mile" comments. They can spoof pretty much whatever they want in this and no one will argue against whether or not it belongs.

I was always opposed to keeping the whole "______ Movie" title after the Wayans dropped it, but it's what made the franchise its money. Kids wouldn't know who Jerry or David Zucker were, anyway. That said, it is getting old, using it for every spoof that makes it to theatres.

Holly Friggin Shit! I just saw the trailer of this film. It looks even far worse than Date Movie. The minute they're spoofing Snakes on a Plane they practically shot themselves on the foot. Seriously, it's just too retarded. I'm sorry but this looks like it was made by a group of mentally challenge 6th graders.
I don't have to wait till December 31, 2007 for the worst movie of the year list. Without a doubt this will be the WORSE movie of the year. It takes the whole cake.
