Excellent Parody
19 October 2007 | by MelGibsonrocksSee all my reviews

As far as parodies go, United 300 is very well done.

A search for "300 parody" on Youtube would bring up many cheaply made, mediocre shorts. Those lucky enough to find this will be happy they did.

The basic premise of this movie is that 4 German terrorists attempt to take over a commercial airliner, but are thwarted by King Leonidas and several members of his Spartan army, who come out from behind the curtain between first class and coach.

What follows is clips of lines parodied from the film ("Tonight we dine in Cleveland!") and visual homages (soda cans bouncing off shields). Scott Burn looks quite similar to Gerard Butler and yells every line ("I'm not yelling, I'm just really passionate!"), including a hilarious exchange with Jerxes (Ken Gamble). The film works in that anyone who knows about the film's most memorable scenes/lines will get the jokes. It also does not fall into the typical parody pitfalls of lame/crude/sexual jokes (that permeate Date, Epic and Superhero Movie or anything else the Scary Movie writers have made)

All in all, very deserving of its win at the MTV Movie Awards for best parody. Even those who have not seen the film should enjoy and understand this.
