Meet the Spartans
From the creators of Scary Movie and Date Movie comes this tongue-in-cheek parody of the sword-and-sandal epics, dubbed Meet the Spartans. The 20th Century Fox production was written and directed by the filmmaking team of Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer. Sure, Leonidas may have nothing more than a cape and some leather underwear to protect him from the razor-sharp swords of his Persian enemies, but that won't stop the brave leader and his team of 13 warriors from defending their beloved homeland against a powerful invading force that includes the likes of a mutant Paris Hilton, the… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The result in Meet the Spartans is less classic Mel Brooks than middling Best Week Ever."
‑ Clark Collis, Entertainment Weekly
"It's so bad even Carmen Electra should be embarrassed."
‑ Adam Graham, Detroit News
"Meet The Spartans? For those unlucky enough to be lured into the cinema, there's every chance you'll be wanting to meet your maker instead."
‑ Ben Rawson-Jones, Digital Spy
"While still not a grand work of art, Meet the Spartans improves upon the formula established in the earlier parodies of Friedberg and Seltzer."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"Besides the few chuckles I had, the movie was just dreadfully bad."
‑ Kevin McCarthy, WJFK-FM (CBS Radio)
"This was the worst movie I've ever seen, so bad that I hesitate to label it a 'movie' and thus reflect shame upon the entire medium of film."
‑ Josh Levin, Slate
"It's a MADtv or Saturday Night Live sketch dressed up in feature-length clothing. It's way too much of an OK thing. And the way-too-much-ness goes on and on."
‑ Mark Feeney, Boston Globe
"Because this movie was written for 10-year-olds, it assumes that those 10-year-olds are the stupidest 10-year-olds alive."
‑ Dave White,
"It's not very good at all, but I did manage to laugh at some moments of sudden pratfalls and comic violence, but the talkshow reference mentality has to go!"
‑ Austin Kennedy, Sin Magazine
"everybody should be ashamed"
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson,
"I'm moving to Europe."
‑ Aaron Hillis, Village Voice
"While there's enough comedic material there for as many as three somewhat tolerable minutes of MADtv, Meet The Spartans gamely alternates between unfunny gay jokes and violent pratfalls for a good 80 minutes."
‑ Steven Hyden, AV Club
"What does it say about a film with an hour running time that has twenty minutes of outtakes after the credits to reach theatrical length? Very little that's positive."
‑ Kevin A. Ranson,
"A bizarre, leering orgy of celebrity crotches, lowbrow horny gay buffoons in leather, moronic gladiator mayhem, and too-much-information cascading bodily fluids galore."
‑ Prairie Miller, NewsBlaze
"Obviously, it's rubbish."
‑ Simon Braund, Empire Magazine
