Four troubled orphans from four separate movie scenarios who are bound together in a wacky chocolate factory after receiving golden tickets to go on an 'epic adventure.' After they escape from the clutches of a very scary Willy Wonka they discover the magical world of 'Gnarnia' through an enchanted wardrobe. There they must seek the help of a randy lion, a hoard of mutants from the x academy, students of witchcraft and wizardry, funky swash-buckling pirates and a mischievous beaver to defeat the evil white bitch! Written by
When Mr. Tumnus tells Lucy about the negative effects of the White Bitch's reign in Gnarnia, he says that under her leadership they have had two major wars, government surveillance of the people, and no gay marriage, as a Kanye West stand-in says "The White Bitch doesn't care about black people." This reflected the second term of then-President George W. Bush via his policy decisions for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and a NSA warrantless surveillance program, along with many states and judicial authorities refusing to make same-sex marriages legal (while this wasn't a strict policy decision, as legal proceedings that ultimately led the U.S. Supreme Court to make same-sex marriages legal for the entire country were led by private citizens and were ongoing at the time of this film, the Administration did not support these efforts in any way). The Kanye West reference comes from the superstar musician saying that President Bush didn't care about black people because of the incompetent Federal response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

This is the story of four orphans brought together by fate. They didn't know it yet, but there was something more greater in store for them, something epic.

Some movies are funny, some are not. This movie may be funny to you, if you liked Date Movie, since both films are pretty much the same in cast and script quality.
Epic Movie is a loosely strung together collection of slap-stick comedy sketches based on various epic movies (Pirates of the Caribbean, Nacho Libre, Chronicles of Narnia, X-Men, Superman, etc...) so it's probably helpful if you have seen a few of the epics this movie takes off at, to understand the jokes used. (If you've seen the clips during MTV video awards, you get the idea on the kind of jokes I'm referring to). Epic Movie tries to cash in on the Scary Movie, Date Movie, "Movie" Movie franchise, but doesn't measure up to the originality shown in the Scary Movie series.
It doesn't take a genius to recommend that you save your box-office ticket money, and if you're interested, wait for the DVD, since this isn't an essential big screen movie.
