Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Even within the subgenre of grab-bag comedy, Disaster Movie sets a new bar for free-associative lunacy. To what degree there is a plot, it's vaguely stolen from Cloverfield: A handful of twentysomethings try to rescue someone in a city assaulted by an incomprehensible threat--in this case, falling asteroids. But that's just a thread on which to string a long and increasingly tedious series of gestures towards recent movies (ranging from High School Musical to Enchanted to Sex and the City to Kung Fu Panda) and pop culture figures (Amy Winehouse to Flavor Flav to Dr. Phil to, of course, perpetual punching-bag Michael Jackson). No one over 30 will recognize more than a fraction of the movie's references, but the movie's bigger problem is that there are hardly any actual jokes--the filmmakers seem to think that simply alluding to Hancock or Jumper is funny in and of itself... and it just isn't. Disaster Movie will probably appeal to its primary audience of high-school students and repressed frat boys, for whom the mere mention of homosexuality prompts jittery laughter and who find generically pretty girls and studly boys in tight clothing titillating. It's a wasted opportunity; there are moments that, through sheer incompetence and desperation, suggest a surreal stream-of-consciousness. A filmmaker like Luis Bunuel or Federico Fellini could have turned such raw matter into a satirical aria that would genuinely critique a culture that worships Paris Hilton. Instead, we get this. Featuring, as ever, Carmen Electra.--Bret Fetzer


Product Description

Prepare for earthshaking hilarity as the raunchy and outrageous team behind Date Movie, Epic Movie and Meet The Spartans puts the world's very survival in the hands of three buxom non-brainiacs. This twisted send-up pulverizes everyone's favorite disaster flicks, pop culture icons and public figures with no-holds-barred humor that will have you quaking with laughter.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disaster all right- is there a zero star option? March 7, 2009
Format:DVD
This movie makes "Plan Nine From Outer Space" look like "Citizen Kane" It's unrelentingly tedious and unfunny; the only redeeming thing is that Kim Kardashian's godawful performance is mercifully cut off early in the movie by an asteroid. I'd rather watch milk spoil than sit through this turkey again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disaster Movie lives up to it's title... January 10, 2009
Format:DVD
I watched this movie hoping that it would contain even a small percentage of laughs, even though Epic Movie cured me of that hope. Somewhere along the line parody & satire films went from cleverly thought out jokes & slapstick to fart jokes that aren't even funny to a first grader. Calling this film a parody or even a comedy would be doing the better films in the genre a disservice.

The plot, you say? What of the plot? There is one, but one that is stretched so thin you could use it as glass in a window. The focus of the movie mainly surrounds the "writers" (who obviously aren't chosen for their merit) throwing in one pop culture reference after another. I can even imagine how the brainstorming session went:

Writer 1: "Hey, the Chipmunks did really well in the box office. Let's include them. Oh, and let's throw in Juno, Enchanted, & Batman."

Writer 2: "Those aren't disaster movies. So what type of jokes are we going to write for these... 'disaster' movies?"

Writer 1: "We're going to make Giselle a man! And we'll turn the Chipmunks rabid! Everyone else will just walk around being themselves!"

Writer 2: "Gay jokes? Fart jokes? Trying to pass off cameos as jokes? Come on guys, this blows and we know it."

Producer: "Throw out Writer 2! He's making far too much sense!"

The only reason I could possibly imagine anyone watching & enjoying this movie is because they're either a pre-adolsescent boy who likes watching boobs (which there are a lot of) and hasn't yet discovered that there are better films out there. Or someone who has an IQ under 100 or has had recent head trauma. In any case this is a film to avoid at all costs.

1.0 out of 5 stars Recipe for the film December 11, 2008
Format:DVD
INGREDIENTS:
2nd rate actors and comedians
Endless sex jokes
Unsubtle humor
Dumbed down Slapstick
Movies that aren't disaster flicks
Cliche'd jokes everyone's tired of hearing
Two talentless directors
A script full of all of the above

DIRECTIONS:

1. Take the two talentless directors and give them the aforementioned script.

2. Then, put in endless sex jokes and pop culture refrences.

3. Have lame jokes, such as Iron Man getting hit by a cow.

4. Hire a bunch of second rate comedians and actors to play the characters.

5. Don't reshoot any scenes. Rush it as fast as you can so that you can get that paycheck.

6. Release it into theaters and watch MTV kids flock.

BEST SERVED WITH: A vomit bag, and a face-palming pad.

1.0 out of 5 stars The five STRANGEST things about Disaster Movie August 18, 2010
Format:DVD
1. "MY SUPER SWEET 16" PARODY. The main kid Will (Matt Lanter) is 25, and he wanted a sweet 16 party. Even as a non-sequitor, this is just weird.

2. THE BLATANT STUNT DOUBLES. This is something I noticed in "Epic Movie" (the martial arts sequence) and "Date Movie" (the motorcycle ride), as well as "Disaster Movie". They're obvious and right in your face, yet there's no irony and clever quip behind them. This film went all out just to show the stunt double right next to the original actor after the end of the typical dance sequence, yet the movie did nothing to make it funny outside acknowledging the stunt players.

3. JUNO'S BABY BEATING UP SARAH JESSICA PARKER. How did the baby's legs attack S.J Parker while it's still inside the womb? I get the "Zohan" reference just from Juno beating her up, but then the baby's legs come in and I just didn't get it. Oh, and Juno's water broke in an exaggerated way, yet she didn't give birth after that, which ended up being a pointless scene.

4. Kim Kardashian: "WE SAW YOUR DREAM, WILL". How? How did she saw his dream? Was she just humoring him because she didn't believe him about the premonitions in the first place? WTF?

5. THE PUPPET CHIPMUNKS. The most godawful-looking recreations of Alvin and the Chipmunks were singing showtunes, and then they suddenly broke into a satanic metal song. Up until the part where the chipmunks start attacking people's groins, I didn't hate this.

"Disaster Movie" isn't just awful, it's bizarre, bizarre, bizarre.

1.0 out of 5 stars Parody is dead November 30, 2008
Format:Blu-ray
Once again that talentless duo that is Selzer and Friedberg show that they can sink lower than Meet The Spartans with this steaming waste of celluloid. I thought that Meet The Spartans scraped the barrel when it came to laughs but this cinematic abortion breaks through the bottom of the barrel to scrape the ground the barrel is on to get laughs and it still fails!

These two chuckleheads still have the same bad habit of explaining the jokes to you as if you were retarded(if you liked this movie chances are you probably are). Examples: "Its an inconvenient truth, its global warming", "Come here you Kung fu Panda", " I know because I saw Indiana Jones and The Kingdom Of the Crystal Skull", "Let Me get my Get Smart phone", " I thought I'd cheer you up with a high school musical", What is this enchanted place". Sheer genius.

You know for a movie titled Disaster movie, you would think that they'd be spoofing movies like Twister, Dante's Peak, Volcano, The Day After Tomorrow right? WRONG. The camera shakes a couple of times, You see some cheesy plastic asteroids, a couple of cows floating around and a very crummy CGI tornado. The movie targets films like Juno, Alvin and The Chipmunks, Superbad, High School Musical, Step Up, Enchanted, The Incredible Hulk, Kung Fu Panda, The Dark Knight and a slew of other summer blockbuster flicks including Hancock. Now tell me, what do these movies have to do with disaster movies? Nothing.

Nobody in this movie does anything that resembles acting and its safe to say that this "movie" is 100% laugh free. None of the "jokes" work and they just drag on for minutes at a time. Seltzer and Freidberg are unfunny hacks that killed a once funny genre with their grave dead brand of humor.
