Saves the Director's Reputation (by strtmanadammac)
I was fortunate enough to go and see a screening of this film. Realising that the two director's had made DAte Movie, I thought, oh no, not again. WRONG. This movie was a billion times better for five simple reasons.1. No corny Humor 2. Excellent Acting 3. Much, much better Directing 4.Good Storyline 5. Enjoyable mockeriesIf you don't want to see Harry Potter or Captain Jack Sparrow look stupid then pass this one, otherwise go see it.This probably wont be a classic comedy film, but has the potential to impress many critics who don't mind a good laugh
What is everyone talking about?? (by gwlane13)
OK...I do not understand where people are coming from! This movie was comedy genius! The jokes, the gags, the OLD HARRY POTTER! Oh the hilarity! What I believe is that these jokes sailed over all of your heads! I mean, what could be funnier than making fun of movies we have already seen! I mean the Superman stunt, it was like they were in my head when they were writing that.I think all people should see this. As a matter of fact, buy it and show it to your kids, grandkids and great-grandkids. Can you say "Treasured Family Hierloom"? Cinematic Gold, breath of fresh air, and a spirit <more>
lifting comedy are just a few of numerous descriptions I have of this movie.Well I must take my leave, but I hope you will all reconsider and re-vote once you realize how genius this movie truly is.In the words of my dear friend Borat, I end my review all with one word, "... pause .... NOT!" Disclaimer: It was very difficult to write this comment. I hope the majority of you are all quick enough of catch the sarcasm. If not, well you probably agree with the above comments anyway! HA HA!
Man, how many times in our lives do we come upon movies as big, as bold, and as powerful as this????? Why, not often, of course!!!!! Now that "Date Movie" is pretty much out of the Bottom 100 list for good Thanks, folks, for your contributions!!!!! , we now have a similar movie, "Epic Movie," on the list.I mean, why on earth would you hate this, huh????? I liked the part where the "Lord of the Rings" guy used the remote on that female jogger like in "Click!!!!!," and the same goes for "Superman" being so "powerful" he can stop a <more>
bullet!!!!! WRONG! The sheer cheesiness of this film makes this the greatest!!!!! So stop complaining and start watching!!!!! 10/10
I saw Epic Movie on opening day with all of my friends. In general I thought that this movie was hilarious and all out fun to watch. Though there are some parts that aren't funny but I would recommend people to see it! The plot was well thought out and the spoofs are genius. Some people say that this movie "sucked" or this movie "rocked!" In my view, I say that this movie "rocked" and I do plan on buying this one on DVD. No Epic Movie is not a blockbuster but it is something you should pay about $6 to enjoy. You will be surprised on how well the <more>
impersonations are, the spoofs are, and the stunts are. GO SEE THIS MOVIE!!! You will leave the theatre laughing.
What a comedy! Epic Movie should be renamed Epic PARODIES! LMBO If only it had elements from Austin Powers, Star Wars, Fantastic Four, SpiderMan, Just Like heaven and especially Step Up. Oh man! This is the bomb. It held #1 at the box office and tragically beaten by Norbit. I'm sure a similar movie, Wrongfully Accused, has the same elements. My favorite was Lucy, the skinny redhead. I like Eddie, the Hispanic one, he's adorable. As for the White Witch rather than B**** , you can't nullify any type of prophecy like it's some kind of fairy tale. Because Prophecies are <more>
inevitable, ancient and like happen quini-centrally. LOL Or is there no such thing as quinti-centrally, millennial or timelessly?! ROFL
one of the funniest films of the year. (by Aaron_borg)
This is one of the funniest film of the year. This is truly funny and very nice. This movie spoofs a lot of amazing films ever!. This is way better than Date Movie and Scary Movie 1 and 4. The acting in this film is very great and the story is silly but still good film i give this film an 9/10 because i died with laughs. I want to see this film over and over again. I will surely add this to my collection and see this 10 times on DVD or more. See this and don't forget to add this to your collection. I love you writers of scary movie because you are making very funny films each year thanks <more>
and good bye to you all. Bye and thanks for reading the comment. if you have a comment email me on [email protected] Thanks again.
I object to the comment made from bigmacsflyingcircus from New Zealand (by sxc_bst)
I must admit that this movie was not as Epic as i had first thought it would be. Although it did not for a moment disappoint me.There are many different types of humor and bigmacsflyingcircus from New Zealand must not have the same sense of humor that the creators of Epic Movie have or the majority of people that fully enjoyed it. If you did not like Scary Movie then it is obvious Epic Movie will not be your cup of tea. I think that the people reviewing this movie should have that particular sense of humor associated with parody movies. I am one of those people and i loved the Scary Movies, <more>
my favorite songs are my Weird Al Yankvich and i was in hysterics for a lot of Epic Movie.So a word of advise for people who review movies... Of course there are going to be bad comments if the person doesn't enjoy the genre they are critquing, so give every movie a fair go and let it be judged by the true fans of that genre. We are the only people who could really judge the quality of one parody movie to the next.Thankyou and goodnight.
Scary Movie, Scary Movie 2, Scary Movie 3, Scary Movie 4 and Date Movie are all hilarious and here is another one to the great collection! I mean what is so bad about its just as good as the Scary and Date movies so whats so dislike-able about it to put it in the worst 100 films. In this great film there is some really funny scenes and when I say funny I mean mega funny bits like The Davinci Code spoof and the Click spoof with man boobs.SO I SAY EVERY ONE WHO LOVES EPIC MOVIE AND WANTS TO GET IT OUT OF THE BOTTOM 100 SIGN UP AS A IMDb MEMBER, WHICH IS FREE!, AND VOTE EPIC MOVIE 10/10 <more>
If another person ever compares this far superior film to Date Movie again, I swear I'll hurl all over them. Epic Movie is exactly the kind of film a spoof movie should befunny as hell, not taking itself too seriously, contains decent acting, and makes constant references to pop culture and other fields. In my eyes, it was a comedic masterpiece, and there wasn't a moment where I stopped laughing. By the end of the film, I was completely breathless.The characters in Epic Movie are your usual stereotypes, but this time around, each of the actors brings something hilarious to each <more>
role. Even the brief cameos, which could have gone badly, work extremely well; in one of the movie's funniest scenes, David Lehre, in a spoof of Punk'd and Ashton Kutcher, yells "shwam, shwam, shwam!" as he 'punks' one of the characters. The movie also features lots of 'in-jokes' if you've seen a lot of movies. For instance, Kal Penn of the film Harold and Kumar go to White Castle says "It feels like I've been there before" when the White Bitch says she's taking him to her White Castle.The spoofs are also well-executed, and a lot of them are done with flashy music. Crispin Glover brings an incredible energy to Willy Wonka in his few scenes that it's a wonder he wasn't given more to work with. Darrell Hammond is uproarious as Captain Jack Swallows in a spoof of Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow.Overall, Epic Movie is the perfect spoof movie in every way, if spoofs are your cup of tea. Don't listen to what everyone else says! Epic Movie is a hilarious, enjoyable, fun little film that spoofs Hollywood's latest Blockbusters in an excellent manner. I actually liked this better than Scary Movie 4 and equally as much as my favorite film in that franchise, Scary Movie 3.
