Scary Movie screenwriters Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer join forces to parody the "biggest" movies ever to hit the silver screen in this comedy that gives such popular box-office hits as Pirates of the Caribbean and Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe the same treatment that Scary Movie gave to the slasher subgenre. A virtual smorgasbord of spoof, Epic Movie tells the tale of four fully grown orphans: one the victim of snakes that attacked her plane, another raised by a kindly Louvre curator, the third a Mexican "libre" wrestling refuge, and the… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The gutter-brow auteurs who helped write the first Scary Movie and created Date Movie milk their lame sketch-comedy minds for yet another punishingly uninspired skewering of Hollywood hits."
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"How can you make fun of such self-aware subjects as Borat or Johnny Depp's winkingly fey Jack Sparrow? Who hasn't already noticed Tom Hanks' bad Da Vinci Code hair? And really, is there anything left to say about Samuel L. Jackson and those snakes?"
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"Raunchy blockbuster spoof is over the top, dumb."
‑ Charles Cassady, Common Sense Media
"A painful regurgitation of memorable moments from recent Hollywood blockbusters, the spoof film Epic Movie is almost entirely devoid of laughs."
‑ Tim Grierson, Screendaily
"The parody is not a bad genre, as the early Zucker films showed us. It's just been put in the control of bad filmmakers."
‑ Garth Franklin, Dark Horizons
"Despite all the scatological high jinks on display, most of the satire is affectionate rather than merciless."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"An amateur-hour game of Spot That Reference, intended for people who crack up simply at the mention of anything topical."
‑ Jim Ridley, L.A. Weekly
"It plays out like an overlong Comedy Central skit lurching for the next laugh without any remorse for the gross misfires in between."
‑ Tom Meek, Boston Phoenix
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson, sbs.is
"This one is a typical time-waster for teenagers or others with disposable income and underdeveloped taste."
‑ Liz Braun, Jam! Movies
"The makers of Epic Movie have just discovered the existence of urine, vomit and pimples, and declared them hilarious."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"Epic Movie strays so far from the solid fundamentals of filmmaking that it calls the very foundation of humor into question."
‑ Nathan Rabin, AV Club
"Maybe these movies are popular, but it seems they just keep getting more inane with each variation on the theme."
‑ Fred Topel, Hollywood.com
"Sucks like a black hole."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"This movie is like a sneeze of bad jokes splattering its germs into the air we all breathe."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
