Consensus: Returning to their seemingly bottomless well of flatulence humor, racial stereotypes, and stale pop culture gags, Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer have produced what is arguably their worst Movie yet.

Disaster Movie is the latest and most slap-dash of the movie parodies to atrophy out of the Scary Movie franchise.

Disaster Movie, the latest disposable parody of disposable Hollywood movies, has a shelf life of about five minutes, tops.

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.

The result is a series of extraneous, deplorably unfunny scenes and sketches stitched together in completely haphazard fashion.

Why would you watch a bad movie about better movies, when you could just rent the originals instead?

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.

Village Voice

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.

Perhaps they'll eventually make one called Spoof Movie, which would brilliantly parody the genre by being consistently funny.

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.

Some slightly funny moments, but mostly because it's so stupid but they think it's brilliant. It's better to laugh at how rubbish it is than… More

An absolute disaster in comedy writing. This movie is un-watchable.
