Consensus: In an attempt to parody rom-com cliches, Date Movie ultimately makes a mockery of itself, with juvenile toilet humor and empty pop culture references.

This crass drag of a dud at best manages to elicit just a couple of half-hearted chuckles over the course of its 80-minute allotment.

Spoof movie encompassing rom coms.

Saw it, but don't remember too much from it. A clue that it was pretty bad.

Date Movie is an awful, unfunny comedy that is crude, vulgar and relies on gross-out moments to try and create its humor. The film fails entirely and the… More
