I recall seeing some trailers for this parody-movie and thinking if that was the best they could show, it probably wasn’t worth watching. I finally got around to watching it and I found it reasonably amusing, if you keep your expectations low.
This does not just parody big disaster movies [that would cramp its style]; it also parodies action movies, family-fare films, cultural icons, and basically anything lurking in our collective subconscious that seemed like grist for comedy. The cast is large though there are few big-names. The plot generally involves a 20-something guy trying to rescue his girlfriend as New York City (?) is being struck by catastrophes. There are more references in this movie than most people can possibly recognize, and part of the fun can be counting how many you can find. Jessica Simpson, Ashton Kutcher, Justin Timberlake, Miley Cirus, Green Giant, Ironman, the chipmunks, Batman, Head-On!, Night At The Museum, Dr. Who, Indiana Jones are just a few examples to show the range.
The language is frequently explicit and skin is amply displayed but there is no actual nudity. This is not sophisticated humor. A full minute of farting early on lets the audience know this is what they can expect. Although some people are depicted as dying, there is no significant blood and the explicit violence is no worse than in children’s cartoons.
There are several dance and song numbers and even though they are parodying things, they actually are pretty good to listen to.
My favorite scene: someone parodying Vince Vaughn dressed as Batman. Hilarious! Had to re-play it.
Sadly there was no gag reel. Unless the entire movie was a gag reel.
I've never seen "Birdemic" or "The Room," but from what I have seen and heard about these movies, they seem to have all of the earmarks of being huge gawd-awful experiences, but I'm willing to bet that I'd actually get far more enjoyment and satisfaction from those terrible and universally panned movies than from what I had to endure sitting through this tur[d]key!
"Disaster Movie" is just as its name implies... truly a "disaster" of a movie -- LIONSGATE genuinely should be ashamed of themselves.
Save your soul, DO NOT watch this terrible movie!
