Product Description

The hilarious hi-jinks begin when a hapless group of orphans from curious backgrounds come together to embark on an adventure that takes them to a special chocolate factory where they fall into an enchanted wardrobe and wind-up in a magical land. Here, hilarity ensues when the bungling bunch run into a colorful collection of characters including a flamboyant pirate and a gang of wizardry-apprentices who they join forces with to overthrow the wicked White Bitch of Gnarnia.

Amazon.com

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 the worst movie I have ever seen.
Mark A. Swain
"Epic Movie" is not only one unfunny joke after another, but these jokes are spaced so far apart that the audience has time to reflect on just how bad the film is.
Mark Eremite
This movie just isn't very funny, not even in a stupid, toilet humor kind of way.

This is perhaps officially THE worst movie I have ever had the displeasure of viewing. Uncreative and dull, Epic Movie does nothing more than throw distasteful gags and humorless jests to the screen, hoping that the mess will somehow stick. Unfortunately, it doesn't. Don't bother with this stinker. Try Pirates or Borat! instead.

Nobody goes into a movie like this thinking they will see great art, but I was hoping for at least a modicum of cleverness and originality. I didn't find it here. This movie just isn't very funny, not even in a stupid, toilet humor kind of way. I also thought it a bit weird that the main film parodied was "The Chronicles of Narnia," a film I'm sure many little kids saw. There is no way an 8 year old should see this movie. There is way too much sexual innuendo for that. I'm sure some of the target audience for this movie saw "Narnia," but I think it would have made more sense to parody the "Lord of the Rings" films, since they are geared for an older audience. I can think of a lot of stupid movies that are genuinely funny, but this isn't one of them.

Here's a list of the films parodied in "Epic Movie": "The Chronicles of Narnia," "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," "The Da Vinci Code," "Pirates of the Caribbean," "X-Men," "Harry Potter," "Snakes on a Plane," "Nacho Libre," and "Click." You'd think that such a large gathering of material would have resulted in a parody that was actually funny, but no; "Epic Movie" doesn't even transcend the parody genre, let alone the genres it makes fun of. The best that can be said about this film is that it's slightly amusing, which isn't nearly enough to allow for a satisfying experience. Yes, I know these kinds of movies are supposed to be extremely silly, and yes, I know that "Epic Movie" delivers exactly as it promises. Nonetheless, I think parodies should have at least one funny joke in them--you know, something that results in laughter.

The film starts with a narrator informing us about four orphans that fate will reunite. The first orphan is Lucy (Jayma Mays), who we first see in the Louvre Museum, running from the masochistic albino monk who murdered her beloved curator (a cameo by David Carradine). She follows several clues--such as a message written on the Mona Lisa saying, "So lame the hair of Tom"--all of which lead her to a vending machine. She then finds a Willy chocolate bar, opens it, and finds a golden ticket. She'd probably be more excited about her find if only she weren't as dumb as a brick; what other kind of a person would run through a museum in stiletto heels?

The second orphan is Edward (Kal Penn), who lives a dreary existence in a Mexican monastery. One day, he decides he's had enough of the awful food he's served everyday (especially since on that particular day, his meal is a dead cat).

My daughter and I saw this movie together and when it was over we compared opinions. She's thirty years younger than I am, has a terrific sense of humor, and we're both fans of a good sick joke. We were really looking to be amused, and this was simply 100 minutes of wasted time.

Please don't see this utter crapbag of a movie. It's slow, dumb, and an insult to the viewer's intelligence. It throws together lame bits that loosely parallel the era's topical humor: Willie Wonka, Narnia, Harry Potter, X-Men, etc, etc... These are rich veins to mine, yet not when one digs with the kinds of shovels kids bring to the beach.

I wish I could give it "minus" points, like the anti-humor it was. In fact, it was so bad that afterward, during a post-movie meal at which the central line of conversation was how much this movie stunk, I realized I left my phone in the theater. I almost considered leaving it until the night staff found it, rather than go back into another showing, however brief.

"Epic Movie" is only epic in this sense: we ALWAYS bring it up as the measuring stick of terrible.

"I'll never go to that restaurant again. That was the 'Epic Movie' of service."

"Boy, that food poisoning I just went through was the 'Epic Movie' of illnesses."

See this steaming pile if you don't believe me. But don't blame me...I told you.

For fans of older spoofs, such as "The Naked Gun" series and Mel Brooks' movies, like Spaceballs, I am afraid "Epic Movie" will prove to be an earth-shattering disapppointment. It would be better that you watched some of the above movies again. It will surely entertain more.

The masic plot, (totally derived from other movies almost verbatim and mixed up a little), is that 4 orphans from different movies find themselves in the factory of Willy Wonker, who has some nefarious plans for them. Escaping to the land beyond the wardrobe, you can pretty much guess what happens next with some not-so-subtle alterations.

What you have in this movie is an attempted spoof without any vestige at all of originality or adaptation. While it is hard to say whether this movie reaches the depths of Bewitched (Special Edition), I think it at least runs a close second.

The one startling positive among the sea of abysmal drivel that is this movie was the character of Jack Swallows. This is not because he is hilarious, (nothing of the sort), but I just thought he did a good job of parodying Captain Jack Sparrow of Carribean fame.

Basically, don't waste your time or your money on this one. There are much better spoofs out there. "Epic Movie" belongs on the trash heap of movies that will be forgotten, if we are lucky.

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
