In this non- stop hilarious ride we follow a struggling Movie Studio that is willing to do anything to make a buck even if it means ruining its reputation, and running the Movie Industry into the ground. This film has everything that an audience wants from a LAUGH OUT LOUD COMEDY by taking a no-holds barred attack on the Spoof Genre from Blockbuster Action movies to Dramas and Documentaries to Popular Television shows.

To begin with, it kind of annoys me when people post instant one star reviews because they disliked a movie. There are probably no movies out there that are one star or "zero stars" as a lot of the reviews here say. Just because someone disliked something doesn't mean it is "The Worst Movie Ever", another phrase that gets tossed around more than the Comic Book Guy in the Simpson's says it.
All that being said, yes, this is a pretty bad movie. It has an excellent concept and had some decent acting from a few of the cast members however it is obvious that the writing was not competent enough to keep up with the idea.
Not Another Not Another Movie almost feels like an attempt to recreate the beauty of "Spinal Tap" like many other failed movies before. Instead of a documentary type spoof on the music industry, it is a spoof on how difficult it is to make a good movie. That is basically the entire meta-joke that the movie tries to evoke, however, it just doesn't deliver. There are some well written scenes, such as the meeting with Vinnie Jones, and also (as Jones) some high profile a-listers that provide cameos or bit parts.
The main problem is that most of the movie's jokes are basically stolen from other comedians / movies / TV shows. It attempts to be a parody but really comes off as more of a collection of plagiarizing bits taken from far better material. There's a big difference between parody / spoof and simply stealing jokes and attempting to make it your own. It really becomes annoying when 85% of the movie is "Hey, that joke was taken from (insert someone else / another movie) rather than spoofing or parodying it.
Overall, the movie is basically funny at times, and is good for just wasting about 90 minutes of your life. However, as good as the concept is and the potential just does not work due to shoddy writing, blatant plagiarizing, and just poor acting with a few exceptions. It really serves best as background noise while you're doing something else rather than really paying attention to it. It actually is a shame because the idea behind it was really solid; a mockumentary about trying to film a mockumentary spoof movie is a great idea. The movie just doesn't deliver.
So Worst movie ever? of course not, that's the most overused phrase in the world. a 1 star or a 10 star? not even close. Is it worth watching? Only if you're really bored and there's nothing else on because there are a few good laughs (although again like I said, most of the best laughs come from other people's material). So well, overall verdict is a 3.5 out of 10. The score is really based on the concept of the film, not on the film itself. And a point and a half for some scenes that are pretty funny.
Bottom line : Watch with no expectations and don't prepare for anything more than a 3/10 movie. Again, it is a great concept that just doesn't deliver. If you're bored and want to waste 90 minutes on mindless recycled / stolen jokes (and a couple of clever/funny scenes) then that's about all you can expect from Not another Not Another Movie.
