Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There are a few lively bits, and one joke with an edge: a slap at Stephen Hawking and his computer-drone voice. Mostly, though, this is super-lame."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"The very act of writing critically about Superhero inspires something of an existential crisis -- no one likely to turn out for it is reading this review, and anybody reading this review is probably not inclined to see it under any circumstances."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"Tiresome, generic spoof is all about crude humor."
‑ Cynthia Fuchs, Common Sense Media
"...boasts an actual storyline and a few genuinely hilarious jokes and gags."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"This parody film plagiarizes Spider-Man to virtually laughless effect."
‑ Todd Gilchrist, IGN Movies
"It's a bit late in the game for Superhero Movie, which was never going to fly, and barely crawls."
‑ John Anderson, Washington Post
"Puerile and idiotic it may be, but Superhero Movie is nonetheless smarter than most of its lowbrow brethren in the Hollywood sub-sub-category known as the spoof movie."
‑ Jason Anderson, Globe and Mail
"Não tão desastroso quanto outras imitações baratas das produções do ZAZ, mas ainda assim apelativo e irregular."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Unfortunately, the film has nothing remotely interesting or satirical to say about the genre it is spoofing, so there is little to hold your attention between the gags, which do not arrive at the rapid-fire clip necessary to sustain the laughter ..."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"The stench is still thick on the corpse of Meet The Spartans, but apparently filmgoers can't get enough of lame-duck lampoons from Scary Movie alumni."
‑ Ken McIntyre, Total Film
"It looks for all the world as if writer/director Craig Mazin took the screenplay for Spider-Man, propped it up next to his MacBook, and just went through it, inserting fart gags, pratfalls and the lamest of jokes."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"To call Superhero Movie a satire, or even a parody, of the genre specified in its title would be misleading, since those terms imply at least an attempt at wit. But no real mockery is intended by this mindless grab bag of slightly used gags."
‑ A.O. Scott, New York Times
"Nothing in Superhero Movie could be described as magical, but for comic-book fans in a forgiving mood, this lowbrow outing has its moments. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, ON Magazine
"Even though the movie made me laugh hard during some scenes, it's wildly uneven!"
‑ Austin Kennedy, Sin Magazine
"A slap in the face with a smirk. This isn't the fun it ought to be."
‑ Holly Grigg-Spall, Film4
