VINE VOICEon June 2, 2006
Fox has just released the brand new DVD transfer Of "Date Movie", a quick, witty, wild spoof of romantic-comedy movies(and maybe, almost everything else). The movie is short. If you watched them all, the DVD extras actually last longer. "Date Movie" is the story of Julia Jones(Alyson Hannigan, who is brilliant), an over-weight young waitress. With the help of a love-muse(?), she is able to re-invent herself and lose the pounds. She meets a handsome Englishman, Grant, and love is in the air. But now she has to deal with their families' incompatibility, and Grant's sexy old girlfriend. "Date Movie" shamelessly parodies "King Kong", "Star Wars", "Meet the Parents", "Kill Bill", and even TV commercials. Then it takes shots at Britney Spears, Jalo, Michael Jackson, Barbara Streisand, and more. Funny stuff(the Jackson spoof is hysterical). "Date Movie" features Tony Cox(from "Bad Santa"), Fred Willard, and a partially-clothed Carmen Electra. "Date Movie" is available in two versions, a rated edition(82 minutes), and an unrated version(85 minutes). The disc has an animated anamorphic widescreen main menu, allowing access to the special features. The quality of the transfer is spotty. Some scenes are crisp in detail, with vivid color, but others are soft and dull. A real positive is the generous boat-load of extras. You get three different feature-length audio commentaries. Featurettes include "On Dating", with the cast, "The Quickie", a six-and-a-half minute movie synopsis, with scenes sped-up and slowed-down. You also get twelve deleted, extended, or alternate scenes. The editor was wise to cut them. A "Gag Reel" has a snicker or two. And the inter-active "Andy's Cherry Stem Surprise" is well...(Dont's go there). Then there is an 18-minute Fox Movie Channel Spoof of Peter Jackson failing to direct "King Kong". The disc ends with three trailers, the international trailer, a soundtrack commercial, and five "internet clips". This is a funny, irreverant film. It doesn't all work, but you can't get too bored in an hour-and-ten minutes. The cat-on-the-toilet sequence is worth the ticket price alone. The extras mention the Fox Legal Dept. editing out portions of the final DVD product. When I saw "Date Movie" in the theater, I seem to remember a Paris Hilton spoof, but in this DVD, the heiress is not to be found.

>Very funny! Made in awfully poor taste, just what I like. It absolutely spoofs other movies and television shows to death, leaving one to wonder where can it all end; what with so much ridiculous imitating of other productions going on, it barely has time to follow it's own storyline or plot. Some scenes are just plain gross, in the direct-in your face style that shocks and violates all of your six senses-which more often than not-repels, rather than sets one's affections for the eventual wedding couple;
(let alone any other members of the cast)...However, it is hilarious and over the top, with nonstop ludicrous scene after scene-complete with a happy ending for the two young lovers that none of us would really want to know or meet up with anywhere. If I did I would RUN!-Kevin Griffin...

okay so date movie isnt airplane but its much better than their latest fodder such as meet the spartans or disaster movie or even epic movie.but what makes date movie likable is that some jokes actually make me laugh.out of all the actors i think sophie monks fares the best.some scenes such as the seen with the house keeper made me laugh so it shows that i like stupid movies.but if you want to know the truth scary movie,and airplane are much better.
