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!

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

Simply one of the dumbest movies I have ever had the great displeasure to watch. I managed to get some 15 minutes into it before turning it off. Horrible acting! Read morePublished 5 months ago by David
I got this for a good price and my brother and I watch this a lot. It is very funny and so much better than 300Published 6 months ago by Stickerz
I'm usually not a fan of the parody movies, but this one actually makes me laugh. It's not over the top like many others have become. Great watch.Published 7 months ago by Christastic4444
