Editorial Reviews

From the director of Revenge of the Nerds comes this outrageous sword and sandals spoof that's got more laughs than Gladiator, hotter bods than Troy, and an army of 301! Horny King Looney of Troy (Rip Torn, Men in Black) sends slacker general Awesomest Maximus (Will Sasso, The Three Stooges) to maintain peace with rival King Erotic of Greece. But when Prince Orlando, who's more into fashion than fighting, steals the King's wife Ellen (Sophie Monk, Date Movie) to be his BFF, it's war! Will Awesomest live up to his godly destiny? Can he defeat the mighty warrior Testiclees (Ian Ziering, Beverly Hills 90210)? Can he light a fire under his gold-digging wife Hotessa (Kristanna Loken, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines)? Join the ultimate toga party for this savagely funny farce that takes comedy to the Maximus.

The movie is primarily a spoof of "Troy" but tosses in some other film bits for good measure. Will Sasso stars as the blue collar Awesomest Maximus, legendary general of Troy. His wife, Hottessa (Kristanna Loken) is the princess. Her brother is named Orlando instead of Paris (Gary Lundy) who is gay. He absconds with Ellen of Troy (Sophia Monk) in order to make the King of Greece jealous. Ian Ziering plays Testiclees in the manner of Brad Pitt. His incestuous mother looks like Angelina Jolie from "Alexander." I think you get the idea of the satire.

When the movie is not spoofing other movies, the humor is overly sexual. When you divide National Lampoon films into classics and not so classics, this falls below the line. If you enjoyed the film "Your Highness" you might try this one too.

F-bomb, sex, nudity (background strippers mostly, no stars)

if you are a lover of parodies and you see this title your probably thinking oh great another spoof about warriors and greece, but awesomest maximus by far rocks the others. it is so original and its produced by national lampoons rather than leslie neilson so you totally get a new feeling to it, also unlike other spoofs this has no advertising no annoying repeating things or stupid lame jokes made by the characters, i watch this movie over and over again. i am very suprised it was not advertised as much as other spoofs are so you have to get lucky to find it. i totally recommend this film for anyone and ignore the ppl that gave it low ratings cuz they dont know a good comedy when they see one. its a BUY you wont regret. YA DAWG!!!!

Having seen some of the many movies that have National Lampoon above the title, it's refreshing to see one that actually has some funny moments. It's inconsistent in delivery, exceptionally crude (duh!), with language, topless girls (that's a good thing!), and is far from the worst. A parody of modern sword-and-sandal A-movies like Troy, Alexander, 300, and Gladiator, it throws out as many gags as it can. Much better than the similar sword-and-sandals parodies. I was surprised.

This was a funny movie with great potential but it overused foul language and crass humor. It seemed they tried to put as much of both in as they could for no purpose but to use it. You could edit the majority of it out and it wouldn't affect the move one bit. It was a fun watch but the I was taken out of it often by those two elements. Over all worth a watch. I don't know about a second though.

Had to buy this for a treasure hunt. If you like really stupid gross humor and have the mind of a 13 year old boy, then I suppose it is okay. Basically a waste of money and of my time. But hey, I took one for the team.

The main reason I got this movie is because of the main star of the cover he is always funny on mad tv and knew he would be just as good on here and he was. this is not for kids so put them to bed when watching this and get a great laugh

this is a shockingly bad movie... the ONLY thing that kept me watching, wasn't hope it would get to a merely kind of bad level, but the semi regular nudity. This is like a softcore porn flick that has incredibly low production value and an intentionally bad script linking bits of semi nude and beautiful women. Will Sasso is wasted in this mess.... I can't recommend to anybody.... this truly gets my lowest rating.

Remember when a movie with "National Lampoon" in the title meant
Creative satire, well written dialogue, and clever double entendre?

This is NOT one of those movies.

The movie is bad, Awsomest bad. It is surprising that a script that is so poorly done would ever make it to the point of being filmed.

I am also surprised that Will Sasso and Rip Torn would be associated with a big steaming pile of c--- like this.
Fans of these actors will be particularly disappointed.
