Definitely PG-13 or above. I could sit down with my buddies, drink some beer, and put this in the player.
From the Pit of Death scene that makes many of our dreams come true by eliminating a number of modern TV, music and film stars (and Dane Cook), to the meeting with the Oracle (who happens to be Ugly Betty), this film is silly and light from the word go. Somehow it works better for me than the rest of the spoof movies that have been around.
Granted, there are plenty of moments in this film that are just too silly, but they are spread out enough that they don't wear on the nerves too much. In particular, I found Leonidas' training of his son to be quite funny.
The cast includes Carmen Electra, Kevin Sorbo, Diedrich Bader, Ken Davitian and Jim Piddock. Considering what type of film this is, they did a good job of keeping a straight face throughout.
Sophomoric, idiotic and dumb are all fine adjectives to describe this film. But what did you really expect? I consider nothing more than a rental, but if I had to buy a copy of one of the recent spoof flicks, this would be the one.
All that needs to be said. Complete trash. I'm not sure at what point, pop-culture references became funny just by themselves. I guy dressed up like Sanjaya from American Idol pops out of nowhere and they kick him into a pit. Then the 3 person American Idol panel. Britney Spears and K-fed.
There's no setup. There's no nothing. If this is what has come of hollywood spoof comedies... I'm done... and now that we've seen a long string of these comedic failures pour out into the theatres and people actually pay for them... legitimizing them... we'll probably see more. It's a sad day in Hollywood.
Thousands of scripts are written every year that should be funded and produced before trash like this. When a supposed comedy does nothing but make this viewer angry... it's awful.
Everyone should be offended that cheap, brainless, here's a pop-culture reference and here's another type movies are being produced like MEET THE SPARTANS. We deserve better from people who are making millions hand over fist and can only come up with DATE MOVIE, EPIC MOVIE, LITTLE MAN, WHITE CHICKS and MEET THE SPARTANS.
Besides `300,' the movie drags nearly every pop culture trend with it. There's text messaging in ancient times, and everyone from a Britney Spears look-alike to a Simon Cowell imitator are found here. Lumbering along, everything from `American Idol,' `Ugly Betty,' `Stomp the Yard,' and `Grand Theft Auto' go along for the march. I was thinking of a comparison, and all I could come up with is `Airplane!,' a classic, which parodied all the `Airport' movies of the `70's, but stopped along the way to poke fun of the likes of `Saturday Night Fever'. The thrust may be done the same way, but the results are not nearly as rewarding.
The bulk of the comedy comes from repetitious jokes about body parts and body fluids. I liked an opening scene when Leonidas's household is receiving potential Spartan warriors and Shrek's heir shows up and gives him a fluid spray in exaggerated proportions to the `Shrek The Third (Full Screen Edition) dream sequence.Read more ›

I'm usually not a fan of the parody movies, but this one actually makes me laugh. It's not over the top like many others have become. Great watch.Published 2 months ago by Christastic4444
THIS IS SPARTA!!!....I think. I am a huge fan of the movie 300 staring Gerrard Butler. This parody is comical at times, and outrageous all the way through. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Michael Cast
