Product Description

History has never been so... hysterical! Prepare to fight for honor, fight for glory, and fight back tears of laughter watching this gut-busting spoof comedy that skewers pop culture's biggest icons.

In Meet the Spartans, the heroic Leonidas, armed with nothing but leather underwear and a cape, leads a ragtag group of 13 - count'em, 13! - warriors to defend their homeland against the invading Persians, whose ranks include Ghost Rider, Rocky Balboa, the Transformers, and a hunchbacked Paris Hilton.

You won't find a funnier Greek war film even if you live to see 300!

Amazon.com

With Meet the Spartans, the creators of Date Movie lampoon penguins, Paris Hilton, American Idol, Britney Spears, Dancing with the Stars, Stomp the Yard, Brangelina, Lindsay Lohan, product placement, Sylvester Stallone, Transformers, and pretty much every other obvious target that's emerged since they made their last flick, Epic Movie. The main subject of mockery is 300, the visual-effects laden Greek warrior movie, the relentless homoeroticism of which is not-so-subtly pointed out with a mixture of scatology, phallic humor, painted-on six-pack abs, disco songs, blows to the groin, and spitting--lots and lots and lots of spitting. There's nothing remotely clever about Meet the Spartans, and even fans of pop-culture cuisinarts like Scary Movie may feel the genre is losing its oomph, but if you're looking for a shotgun blast of lowbrow gags, this is it. Along for the ride are Sean Maguire (The Class), Kevin Sorbo (Hercules), Ken Davitian (Borat), Diedrich Bader (Napoleon Dynamite), and Carmen Electra, without whom no movie of this kind would be complete. The only person who emerges with any credibility is comedienne Nicole Parker (Mad TV), who does a pretty spot-on impression of Ellen DeGeneres. --Bret Fetzer

The order was shipped in good time. Delivery was prompt. The item was in good condition. Great price. The movie is what it is. Good parody of 300. Predicatable and silly at times but I knew that going in.

Definitely PG-13 or above. I could sit down with my buddies, drink some beer, and put this in the player.

I'll have to admit, watching this movie the first time, there were some quick laughs, and it caught my attention. Sometimes, I feel the jokes were drawn out way too long, and that's a shame. If I were a 14 or 15 year old, I'd probably give this all 5 stars. This definitely isn't a movie in which you can watch over and over again. When you're bored, or strung out from the job, or the weekly grind is just too much and you want to let loose for a brief moment, go ahead. Otherwise, this movie is dime a dozen, in the ranks of The Comebacks, Epic Movie, etc etc etc.

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. If you like the parody deal, this will be right up your alley. Meet the Spartans is a jab at the movie 300 where a few hardened soldiers hold off the mighty Persian Army by confronting them in a narrow crack called the Hot Gates. That's about it as far as the similarities between the two go. You'll have to decide for yourself how good Meet The Spartans is.

One of my favorite movies is "300."
But my daughter showed me that there was a spoof on this classic movie. I didn't want to watch a funny take on "300!"
But, I laughed my head off! This is a great ride, take it for a spin!

Please describe the audio and video quality of any Blu-Ray you review. Thanks to those who do this.

The 1.85:1 video quality was very detailed, but had a fine grain, and I don't understand how such a recent movie could have grain (I thought they filmed all new movies digitally). There was so much detail, the skin of the people, and there was a lot of skin in this movie, looked gross with all of the imperfections. I only give the video quality of this movie an 8.2 on a 10.0 scale.

The DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio was adequate; nothing special.

The movie only lasted about an hour and 10 minutes. The credits started at a hour and 8 minutes. When I watched this on satellite a year of two ago, I thoroughly enjoyed it. This time I found it boring, and don't even remember seeing half of the look-a-like characters that were in the credits. Maybe I was just tired when I saw it this time.

It was funny the first time. It was a few chuckles and whatnot the second time. The third time onward made me feel like a dropped a few IQ points for even watching this movie in the first place. When you watch a parody, you really expect a good laugh each and every time you watch it... just enough to make you laugh at the original movie while you attempt to re-watch it.

… as of the third time, this movie made me feel stupid for trying to poke at 300. After I realised that pop culture and ancient civilisation do not mix, I felt stupid to even re-watch any points past the American Idol crossover parody (and it's technically not a spoiler because the trailer showed it at one point.)

If you really find this repeatedly amusing, I get it - humour is all you care about and it's fine. I love a good laugh myself, but when two themes do not mix and attempt to make a laugh each and every time I watch it, then it's not worth a chuckle. That's why I'm giving it three stars - because it made me laugh a lot the first few times of watching it.

This is a hilarious spoof of "300". It is a great absolutely mindless movie you can get a real laugh from. It makes fun of everything and everyone! This movie is for sure not for everyone. I enjoyed it very much.
