A dismal failure of a spoof with only the slightest bit of funny. This dreck breaks all the rules of good spoofing.
1. Be timely. A joke about Ellen in Mr Wrong? Really?
2. Be funny when offensive. Accident prone kid in Scary Movie 3, mildly funny. Assault on a kid by Spartian, not funny.
3. Be subtle sometimes. Not everything has to go to the extreme.
4. Be broad. Go everywhere for your spoofs, not just the same wells over and over.
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY....
5. DON'T EXPLAIN EVERY RIFF AND SOURCE MATERIAL. If you have to tell your audience where it comes from, chances are it's not funny.
The fact that this film is only 60 odd minutes plus one of the longest credit sequences loaded with even more unfunny deleted scenes (seriously can't those wait for the DVD no one should buy either), that's just adding insult to injury.
