By dint of the inexplicable popularity of their send-up of movie genres in the parody movies Scary Movie and Date Movie, writer/director duo Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer probably got an epic-sized bucket of cash for this hastily stitched pastiche of drive-by entertainment. There's no particular variety of movie they were sent to send up this time, unless big box-office grossers has now become a genre in and of itself. If so, Epic Movie may well qualify as part of that league itself. Very little expense has been spared to make so-called "comic" references to a slew of mostly recent blockbusters--The Chronicles of Narnia, Borat, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the X-Men and Harry Potter series, Superman Returns, Nacho Libre, and The Da Vinci Code to name a few--and it's assumed we've seen them all. In a goofy thread of a story about four orphans plucked from some of the above, battle must be done through various bastardized plots from same so that a prophecy can be fulfilled and they can assume their rightful place as rulers of a sacred land. Lots of crotch kicks, fart, urine, and vomit jokes speed by as we pass through Willie Wonka's factory and a magical wardrobe with an unusually interesting assortment of look-alikes and name actors caught up in the gag mix (some of it legitimately funny). Darrell Hammond, Crispin Glover, David Carradine, Kevin McDonald, Carmen Electra, Kal Penn put on game (and sometimes gamy) faces, and it's definitely a hoot to watch comedy improv alums Fred Willard and Jennifer Coolidge as Aslo the Lion and the White Bitch do battle in a Narnian good vs. evil character smackdown. As lame as you already expect a movie like this to be, anything that can throw together an homage to C.S. Lewis alongside MTV's Punk'd in less than 90 minutes can't be all bad. --Ted Fry

This is a very funny movie, but the comedy is stupid humor. If you don't like stupid humor then this movie is not for you.Published 4 months ago by WhitetailHunter23

Most of the movie was funny but some of the attempts at humor were just asinine with no redeeming quality. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Gene
This is more a montage of farce premised on a variety of epic style movies, serials or trilogies, and is one of the most vulgar movies of the decade. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Egalitarian

|whats the difference between unrated and rated?||
I only saw the Unrated version, but at a guess I would say that there are a couple full-frontal nudity shots (one of a girl coming out of a wardrobe, and the other a girl coming out of bed with a half-lion, both entirely pointless and dumb) that were not in the PG-13 version. The running time is... Read More
