One of the BEST movies I have ever seen! It had me laughing so loud everybody could hear me!
13 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

So I went to the Superhero Movie yesterday and I wasn't sure if it was going to be any good because most of the reviews and ratings on here were very poor and normally these types of movies aren't very good at all. So anyway I went in there with doubts but in the first 20 seconds I was cracking up even just with the start where there is just saying who's in the film. From that point on to the very end I had never laughed so hard in my entire life. This movie was absolutely fantastic and I would see it over and over again. There are jokes every 30 seconds! I highly recommend everybody to see this fantastic movie, you won't regret it.
