There seems to be a general rule of thumb now that a "Movie" franchise
film is only really half-decent if Aaron Seltzer & Jason Friedberg
aren't involved with the production. The good news then, is that in
this case, they weren't. The people behind "Extreme Movie" are the same
people who brought you "Not Another Teen Movie" which is one of the
better spoof movies of recent years.
This is not the kind of movie you'd let grandma watch. It's not really the kind of movie you'd want your parents to catch you watching either, but it is perhaps the sort of thing teenagers would watch as a 'Date Movie'. It's juvenile and full of sex and fart jokes, not to mention a fair bit of nudity, so its not really for the easily offended. A film about teenagers and sex is by its very definition going to be a bit raunchy. At the grand old age of 35, maybe I'm getting a bit long in the tooth for these kind of teen 'High School' movies, but I do like comedy and spoof films so am always prepared to give stuff like this a chance, and I did find a couple of parts of this film quite funny and I did laugh. Also for once, I was disappointed that the film came to an end after just over seventy minutes - unlike with the 'Epic' and 'Disaster' movies, my brain cells weren't starting to fry and I could easily have sat through more of the same.
This is not a movie in the normal sense of the word but a series of skits with the common theme of teenage sex. Personally, I liked the guy who went to the wrong apartment by mistake dressed in a mask to act out a kidnap fantasy with a girl he met online - "Did anyone order a rape?" - it just cracked me up for some reason - not sophisticated by any means, but funny. This is definitely a film for the Lads rather than the ladies though.
I caught this flick before it was released and had no idea what it was
about. The title instantly gives you a bad feeling all over. Is it
really one of those franchise " ______ Movie". Is it really as bad as
those films? The answer is no.
It is incredibly worse.
Ladies and gentlemen this flick has cracked my top ten on the list of the worst movies ever made. It is truly that terrible.
The film, if you can even call it that, has no virtually no story or plot. It is honest to god, a bunch of sketches. Something off of SNL or Mad TV, but for raunchy. There is one character that runs throughout the entire film and he tries to get the girl. Nothing new, original or funny there.
The "film" for some reason has recognizable names. Stars like Jamie Kennedy, Matthew Lillard, Frankie Muniz and Michael Cera. This "film" is an embarrassment for all involved and should be locked away with films like Belly or Carnivore.
Non of the sketches are funny. We've seen all these things before. It tries to be edgy, but comes off as juvenile. A woman gets her cellphone stuck in her vagina and it constantly goes off, pleasuring her at the most inappropriate times. A kid buys a sex toy, a life like vagina and the entire skit is his relationship with it, it becomes jealous and kills itself. Matthew Lillard some unknown reason inter cuts the sketches with unoriginal jokes that your father probably knows.
The only tolerable bit was Cera, and it's only because he sells it, not the writing.
For the love of god and all that is good, never watch this trash.
From the offset this film tries so hard to pull off a 1999 teen comedy
spoof, though it fails cringefully. The movie is just one incoherent
skit to another - all involving different characters, with flashes to
an awful 'Street confessions' mock TV show and film editing transitions
of white noise, how windows 95. Also talent wise Frankie Muniz
headlines the movie, which for an out of work child actor doesn't say a
lot. Big name Michael Cera looks embarrassed through trying to bounce
off other wooden 'actors' (I doubt they were even that) involved a
small role in an equally unfunny scenario. And the porn scene... I
think it's safe to say SAG have no idea where those artistes were hired
from. The writers also embarrassed themselves implementing poor, poor
imitation scenes from Weird Science, Girl Next Door and Not Another
Teen Movie, so much it ruins the original.
Overall I felt hurt I had wasted my time watching this film, the very least they could have done was edit it so it all stories were linked and thus gave somewhat correlated chronology of events, instead of mind wobbling mess of themes. There was a main plot of the film nestled inbetween the separate dire toilet humour gags, though it was underdeveloped and poor.
This film is about a bunch of teenagers' encounter with sex in their
school and outside school.
"Extreme Movie" is delivered in several segments, each unrelated to another. Hence, there is no coherent storyline, but just episodes of events that filmmakers think are fun to film. The film is adequate to slightly entertain, but do not expect anything very funny. The jokes do not really work either. It is quite a disappointment considering the number of big name actors in this film.
Putting things into perspective, "Extreme Movie" is way better than the recent spoofs such as "Disaster Movie". At least I did not feel bored or waiting for "Extreme Movie" to end.
Extreme Movie is very deceiving in its name. Many people have assume that it was a spoof movie such as Epic movie, or disaster movie, but it isn't. Its basically just a bunch of skits of teens in embarrassing situations trying to get the girl. Though there's one main story, involving a kid-Mike (Ryan Pinkston) trying to get a girl from his class. That seems to come around here and there and ends up being there towards the ending. The setup of this movie reminded of the animation series of Robotchicken: a bunch of sketches which are zapped when finished. And the same thing is going on here. Mix Robotchicken with an average teen movie and this is what you get. Also the talented cast was wasted (Frankie Muniz, Michael Cera, Jamie Kennedy), they're only in about one scene which is pretty deceiving considering they get top billings and are on the cover of the poster. Overall this movie was just lame, unfunny and just horrible.
Extreme Movie is not the worst of its genre. When I watched, I was expecting a terrible movie, along the lines of Disaster Movie and Epic Movie. To give this movie credit, it is not as bad as those two. However, it is still a dire movie. The title is a head-scratcher, I wasn't sure what it meant by extreme, if it meant the humour I'll understand but if it was something else, sorry I don't get it. The film is rather cheap to look at, while the direction is decidedly patchy. The acting is pretty terrible, not the worst I've seen, but nobody seems comfortable with their material. Frankie Muniz is bland, Ashley Schneider is all looks no acting talent, Jamie Kennedy is uncharismatic, Michael Cera tries hard- in all honesty he is the only actor seemingly who tries- but struggles with bad material while Matthew Lillard is pointless. The biggest failings of Extreme Movie are in its humour and storytelling, the jokes are unfunny and the script is really lame on the whole, while the story is predictable and almost a non-event. I also hated the irritating characters and the ending, which felt really tacked on. All in all, a dire movie but I have seen worse. 1/10 Bethany Cox
I've read IMDb reviews for years, either to research a movie before I see it, or check out whether others agree with my thoughts after the fact. I hope I've caught you as someone who hasn't yet seen this, because I registered with the site for the sole purpose of warning you. This "movie" is really just a series of moving pictures from the backlot of a fourth-tier porn studio that decided to have its actors get together between takes and try to put something "funny" together. To discount it as offensive and gross would be unfair to offensive and gross movies; it's just...pointless. No acting, no plot, no special effects, no jokes, just the constant repetition of naughty words and breast shots. Though I put this movie on in the background while I was cleaning the house (yes, I am intentionally including that disclaimer to distance myself as much as possible), I still feel that an hour of my life is forever tainted. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME.
The best part about this movie was the credits....
Why is Matt Lillard a star guest playing himself in this movie...u did Scream and Scooby-Doo.
I have never done a review for a movie on IMDb but this movie was so horrible I had to come onto the site and register in order to help save others from wasting an hour and 10 minutes of their life.
This movie doesn't even deserve 4 stars...it doesn't even deserve to be on this website or considered a movie.
I've lost respect for all of the actors that took part in this movie, except for Kyle Gass and Michael Cera but what the hell were they thinking. And poor Will Forte...why did you write this movie. Jesus.
Picking up the movie by chance the title made me think this would be a
spoof movie in the veins of "Date Movie" or "Scary Movie". However it
quickly turned out that this was actually a collage of sketches centred
around teenage sexual experiences with ideas ranging from farting to
accidentally getting cast in a porno flick. The cast itself is the who
is who of on-screen geeks: Michael Cera, Ben Feldman, Matthew Lillard,
Frankie Muniz, Steven Christopher Parker, Roy Pinkston.
An average, but admittedly occasionally, entertaining affair, which naturally lacks real focus given it has no real plot, apart from the fact it builds around one high-school and one basic concept. Much like a pretty poor Saturday Night Live episode it does have its moments, but some of the jokes are literal stinkers.
When I watched this movie I didn't really expect much from it to be
honest, so I wasn't shocked that it was just an average American teen
comedy with plenty of dirty humor. There were some laugh out loud
moments (such as the next level scenes, the Michael Cera rape scene,
the portable vagina scene and most of the scenes with Ryan Pinkston in,
mainly because he really plays the average teenager trying to get with
the hot girl really well) and unfortunately there were some really not
so funny scenes (mainly the Matthew Lillard scenes).
Anyways to sum this film up, it's a middle of the road comedy with a few good laughs so if you're expecting to see a great comedy film with funny moments throughout I strongly advise you go and watch The Hangover films or The Inbetweeners movie instead.
