This is more a montage of farce premised on a variety of epic style movies, serials or trilogies, and is one of the most vulgar movies of the decade. Said film follows the identical premise and plot line, if any, as that of the "scary movies", which are also funny, but extremely rude, and vulgar. This film is not for kids, as much as the attractive artwork would entice kids to want to see it, this one is definitely not for children. Sexuality, sensuality, and other orientations of the same genre are within this film. There is little to no plot, and it was likely not intended to have a plot, and hardly any real acting, most of this film is devoted to trying to squeeze jokes out of everything, even things that are sensitive, vulgar or perverted in the fullest sense of today's mores.

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.

I knew I should have avoided this one! This is what happens when you don't listen to your gut and give crap a chance to steal IQ points. Now I feel like an EPIC idiot for renting it. Well, at least I did buy it, so I didn't get completely screwed. Ok, the movie had some funny parts, but I still feel well, robbed? Check please!

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).

Most of the movie was funny but some of the attempts at humor were just asinine with no redeeming quality. Even with the few parts that were stupid without being funny, the movie was a laugh and worth watching.

But, wasn't.

The jokes are way too obvious for even a parody movie. Despite the various actors and actresses in it having stellar roles in other films/shows. The abysmal quality of the script shines through from beginning to end.
