Date Movie has some funny moments.
Adam Craig
They just throw parts of other movies randomly and they didn't even try to make it funny.
B. Murray
This by far has to be one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

I enjoy spoof movies. I've seen "Airplane" a million times, the Scary Movie franchise still makes me laugh, and the "Naked Gun" films were inspired and fresh. Heck, even "Not Another Teen Movie" had its funny moments.

This film, on the other hand, simply falls flat. I think the writers forgot that to make a spoof, they had to do more than just menetion the movie they are spoofing, or at least make the spoof moment somewhat satirical and entertaining. It's like they made a list of all the films they wanted to make fun of and then couldn't come up with ways to make them funny.

Examples:

1) We need to spoof Pretty Woman! Let's have the male star dress up as a hooker and walk down Melrose in a flashback sequence! Wait a minute, huh? Why is the male star imitating a female prostitute again?

2) We need to spoof Meet the Parents! I know, let's have the goofy Ben Stiller character knock down the urn with the mother's ashes in it, only THIS time, we'll have an entire dead body spill out of the urn instead of ashes. Oh that will be a hoot! And THEN we'll have the cat go and french kiss the dead body instead of pee on it. That's hysterical!

3) We need to spoof Kill Bill!! (Wait... what? Is that even a date movie?)

4) We need to spoof Hitch. I know! Let's have a dwarf play some guy named Hitch who gives love advice to our lead female. Hysterical!

5) We need to spoof When Harry Met Sally. I have a great idea. For no reason at all, we'll start a dinner scene with our male star faking an orgasm (ridiculously I might add). He won't be trying to prove a point or anything, he'll just be wailing around like a dying seal for no reason at all at the beginning of the scene. That will get a huge laugh.

This movie is almost too easy a target, and I don't want to spend much time on it as the essence of this film has been captured effectively by many, many other reviewers. At heart, "Date Movie" is just a bit of silliness--it has no ambition, no goals other than to showcase its preposterous spoofs. Truth be told, I usually don't mind silly escapist fun--as long as a picture knows it's not very good, you can't really hold anything else against it. My issue with "Date Movie," thus, is more complex. Movies like "Scary Movie" or "Airplane!" have done a great job skewering other films and pop culture icons--but the primary difference between those films and "Date Movie" is that they frame their spoofs and gags around an actual plot.

My irritation with "Date Movie" comes from its absolute laziness in not even attempting to tell a story. Heck, it doesn't even fake it. No, apparently the sheer delight at seeing someone in a fat suit is supposed to carry us through an entire film. The gags are so random--and don't get me wrong, you might chuckle occasionally--they end up making no sense whatsoever. Have we gotten so jaded that we don't even expect a rudimentary storyline? It's sight gag, after sight gag, after sight gag--with a sound gag thrown in for variety. And it's not even as if these jokes are clever. By shooting at the easiest pop culture targets and liberally adding unnecessary bodily function humor--it's as if the filmmakers expected us to lap all their "hilarious" antics up.

There are talented people in the cast. Surely Alyson Hannigan (a star of the small screen) deserves better. But at least she, and the others, are game and throw themselves into the proceedings--but to little affect.

There was a time when parody was more insightful. While this type of film has never been known to be subtle, a good parody should know its framework and make humor based on it. A good parody winks at the audience while also reveling in some exagerations.

Like fellow reviewers here have said, to simply take the plot from a movie and exagerate it does not equal parody. There is nothing subtle about this film, at all. The only humorous parts of the film are seen in the trailers. The majority of everything else can be skipped.

If you're expecting the so-called "unrated" edition to fill in the missing pieces and hope that it makes the film better, be warned. Whenever a PG-13 film becomes unrated, it normally means there were maybe one scene, one instance or so that caused it to touch the R rating and so that one scene, joke, word, or what have you was taken out. Still standing at around 85 minutes, this film won't be changed much. And, really, that's one minute more of your life wasted.

Speaking of a waste, I'd rather waste my time watching the movies emulated here or watch Not Another Teen Movie (and that's saying something) than watch this.

This by far has to be one of the worst movies I have ever seen. And damn, I'm in Iraq. We dont get a chance to buy many movies here, so I thought this would give me a good laugh. HAHA, there is the laugh. The comedy comes with the fact that this is supposed to be funny. Anyway, If I have helped at least on person from buying this putrid, piece of cinematic stupidity, then I have been successful. I would have rated this lower but there is no rating below 1 star.
