I’m profoundly disappointed in the American movie going public.
MEET THE SPARTANS made $18.7 million dollars at the box office this weekend to land the number one spot.
What? How? Why?
How such a truly unfunny movie could dupe that many people into seeing it is beyond me. And I know it’s a retched excuse for a comedy because I had to sit through the “filmmakers'” last two debacles, DATE MOVIE and EPIC MOVIE (I swear that it’s only because I had to as research for my job. I hate that I was forced to waste my time sitting through them and have been bitching about it ever since.)
Let me make this perfectly clear...There are no jokes in these movies!!! No set up and punchline. They put a Rambo or Britney Spears look-a-like in the middle of a scene for no comedic reason. They expect the audience to think it's funny because, "hey, I recognize that person. Rambo isn't supposed to be in 300!" These movies don’t even quality as lowest-common denominator. They are totally devoid of any creativity.
Shame on you if you paid to see this movie. It’s because of you that next year there will be another retched “spoof” movie being forced on us.
And if anyone disagrees with me, I challenge you to explain to me why these movies are funny. I would love to have that debate with you.
