(2008) (Matt Lanter, Kim Kardashian) (PG-13)
Otherwise, use the following link to read our complete Parental Review of this film.
- QUICK TAKE:
- Comedy: People try to survive a disaster as parodies of popular movies and celebrities play out.
- Will (MATT LANTER) has bigger issues than being commitment phobic when it comes to his girlfriend, Amy (VANESSA MINNILLO), for he's been having nightmares featuring a saber-tooth version of Amy Winehouse (NICOLE PARKER) who warns him that the end of the world is coming.
He thinks that's prophetic when meteorites start raining from the sky while attending a party thrown by his friend Calvin (GARY JOHNSON) and his girlfriend Lisa (KIM KARDASHIAN) that's attended by others, including a snarky pregnant teen, Juney (CRISTA FLANAGAN).
With Amy having previously broken up with him, Will sets out to rescue her, all while he and a handful of others, including a fairy tale Enchanted Princess (NICOLE PARKER) and her Prince (TAD HILGENBRINK) who've shown up from a manhole in the street, must deal with all sorts of disasters in this parody spoof of popular movies and celebrities.
- OUR TAKE: 0 out of 10
- Our new reviewing policy for films that aren't shown in advance to critics is that we'll only provide a paragraph or two about the film's artistic merits or, more accurately, lack thereof. After all, life is too short to spend any more effort than that on a movie that even the releasing studio knows isn't any good (which is why they hid it from reviewers before its release).
When any release states it's from the "filmmaking team behind the hits Date Movie, Epic Movie and Meet the Spartans," that should be reason enough for everyone to run for the hills and as far away from the local multiplex as possible. Such is the case with "Disaster Movie," yet another lame effort at being a spoof flick.
With "comedic" parodies (most of which drag on and on, eliciting nary a laugh) of this and recent year's popular movies (such as most of the comic book adaptations as well as the likes of "Juno" and "No Country For Old Men") and notable personalities such as Amy Winehouse, Jessica Simpson, Hannah Montana and, of course, Michael Jackson, popping up all around a barely there plot, the film's title is right on as this is an unmitigated catastrophe. It rates as a 0 out of 10.
