Editorial Reviews

From the director of Revenge of the Nerds comes this outrageous sword and sandals spoof that's got more laughs than Gladiator, hotter bods than Troy, and an army of 301! Horny King Looney of Troy (Rip Torn, Men in Black) sends slacker general Awesomest Maximus (Will Sasso, The Three Stooges) to maintain peace with rival King Erotic of Greece. But when Prince Orlando, who's more into fashion than fighting, steals the King's wife Ellen (Sophie Monk, Date Movie) to be his BFF, it's war! Will Awesomest live up to his godly destiny? Can he defeat the mighty warrior Testiclees (Ian Ziering, Beverly Hills 90210)? Can he light a fire under his gold-digging wife Hotessa (Kristanna Loken, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines)? Join the ultimate toga party for this savagely funny farce that takes comedy to the Maximus.

3.0 out of 5 stars LET'S GO TROJANS March 17, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
The movie is primarily a spoof of "Troy" but tosses in some other film bits for good measure. Will Sasso stars as the blue collar Awesomest Maximus, legendary general of Troy. His wife, Hottessa (Kristanna Loken) is the princess. Her brother is named Orlando instead of Paris (Gary Lundy) who is gay. He absconds with Ellen of Troy (Sophia Monk) in order to make the King of Greece jealous. Ian Ziering plays Testiclees in the manner of Brad Pitt. His incestuous mother looks like Angelina Jolie from "Alexander." I think you get the idea of the satire.

When the movie is not spoofing other movies, the humor is overly sexual. When you divide National Lampoon films into classics and not so classics, this falls below the line. If you enjoyed the film "Your Highness" you might try this one too.

F-bomb, sex, nudity (background strippers mostly, no stars)

5.0 out of 5 stars GREATEST SPOOF EVER!!!!! October 27, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
if you are a lover of parodies and you see this title your probably thinking oh great another spoof about warriors and greece, but awesomest maximus by far rocks the others. it is so original and its produced by national lampoons rather than leslie neilson so you totally get a new feeling to it, also unlike other spoofs this has no advertising no annoying repeating things or stupid lame jokes made by the characters, i watch this movie over and over again. i am very suprised it was not advertised as much as other spoofs are so you have to get lucky to find it. i totally recommend this film for anyone and ignore the ppl that gave it low ratings cuz they dont know a good comedy when they see one. its a BUY you wont regret. YA DAWG!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely a good laugh for a bad day July 19, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie puts forth the same humor that originally made national lampoon so great in the beginning. I can't even look at the Dvd case without giggling.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some Funny Stuff for a Change from National Lampoon September 7, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Having seen some of the many movies that have National Lampoon above the title, it's refreshing to see one that actually has some funny moments. It's inconsistent in delivery, exceptionally crude (duh!), with language, topless girls (that's a good thing!), and is far from the worst. A parody of modern sword-and-sandal A-movies like Troy, Alexander, 300, and Gladiator, it throws out as many gags as it can. Much better than the similar sword-and-sandals parodies. I was surprised.

There was a time when the name National Lampoon meant something. It was the breeding ground for a large number of comics and writers, first with the initial magazine and later with its radio and road shows. When it took the dive into feature films it splashed big time with ANIMAL HOUSE and VACATION. But that all changed. Each item connected with the original name died out. The last to go it seems is their films. Every time a new movie comes out with the name National Lampoon attached to it I cringe just a little. And they never disappoint me: they're always bad.

The latest to have the words National Lampoon attached to it is NATIONAL LAMPOON'S THE LEGEND OF AWESOMEST MAXIMUS. The story revolves around...well never mind. It doesn't matter. This movie was so bad it would be a disservice to waste time talking about it in depth. Suffice to say its a broad parody of the sword and sandal films made over the past 20 years, everything from BRAVEHEART to 300.

The jokes told here are the type that you might have told when you were reaching puberty and the subject of oral sex and naked boobs was enough to send you into a laughing frenzy. Where as National Lampoon had a subtle sense of humor to it, a bit of class even when discussing such things, this one goes for playground mentality and achieves it quite well. If only those on playgrounds were the intended audience this movie would have made a mint. Instead it went straight to DVD and doesn't even deserve that.

Note to Will Sasso: if you continue playing a bumbling idiot in all of your roles you will play nothing but a bumbling idiot forever. So far that seems to be the case. Move on.

I honestly tried watching this movie but had a difficult time getting past the first 15 minutes it was that insulting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny, in the right setting May 27, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
I was high when I saw this on TV a few days ago. I'm not sure if I overanalyzed the movie because I was high, but it seemed like every single scene took the dialogue way past the point of relevance. Each character would go off into a rant about something that otherwise might seem stupid, but I thorougly enjoyed the movie being in the state of mind that I was in. Kind of like "House Of Payne", it's stupid unless you're under the influence of something. I loved MadTV, so it was nice to see Will Sasso. This is much better than the 3 Stooges movie he was just in if you're wondering.

I recommend watching it, but don't expect much.
