The filmmaking team behind Date Movie and Meet the Spartans is back with a comedy spoof sending up disaster movies in this Lionsgate production. Matt Lanter, Vanessa Minnillo, G-Thang, and Kim Kardashian head up the cast as a group of concerned citizens willing to do whatever it takes to save planet Earth from being incinerated by falling meteors or overrun by rabid chipmunks. Along the way, everything from High School Musical to Cloverfield gets the parody treatment. Carmen Electra and Tony Cox co-star.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Disaster Movie is the latest and most slap-dash of the movie parodies to atrophy out of the Scary Movie franchise."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"Disaster Movie, the latest disposable parody of disposable Hollywood movies, has a shelf life of about five minutes, tops."
‑ Nathan Lee, New York Times
"Depressingly, these magpie parodies are so cheap to produce they can't fail to make money -- which probably means this interminable franchise is far from over."
‑ Jamie Russell, Radio Times
"This might have been edited down to 20 minutes of entertaining film. Maybe one day the team involved will start employing editors and produce something we can all look forward to."
‑ Jennie Kermode, Eye for Film
"Rarely has a movie had a more appropriate title."
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"The result is a series of extraneous, deplorably unfunny scenes and sketches stitched together in completely haphazard fashion."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"Why would you watch a bad movie about better movies, when you could just rent the originals instead?"
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"The pomposity of big-budget B-movies can certainly be taken down a notch, but Friedberg and Seltzer rely too much on trailer moments for their broad comedy."
‑ Serena Donadoni, Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
"It's juvenile and crude, and it ranks right up there as one of the worst films of the year."
‑ Jason Zingale, Bullz-Eye.com
"A poorly staged, entirely laugh-free big screen exercise that, despite its name, is not really a genre spoof at all, but rather merely an excuse to (attempt to) poke fun at Hollywood movies from this calendar year."
‑ Brent Simon, Shared Darkness
"Rushed into production with no better drape for its threadbare gags than Cloverfield, this carpet-fouling mongrel of a movie no more deserves release than do anthrax spores."
‑ Jim Ridley, Village Voice
"Perhaps they'll eventually make one called Spoof Movie, which would brilliantly parody the genre by being consistently funny."
‑ Michael Ordoņa, Los Angeles Times
"There's no nice way to say this, so I'll just say it: Writer/directors Friedberg and Seltzer are a scourge. They're a plague on our cinematic landscape, a national shame, a danger to our culture."
‑ Josh Rosenblatt, Austin Chronicle
"[A] budget-less pastiche of sub-Mad-magazine parodies culled from the trailers of almost every summer movie."
‑ Brett Michel, Boston Phoenix
"It's a merry, reckless mess, like a blender that gets revved up too high and spews everything out all over the countertops."
‑ Neil Pond, American Profile
