Consensus: Superhero Movie is not the worst of the spoof genre, but relies on tired gags and lame pop culture references all the same.

Owen Gleiberman
Entertainment Weekly

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.

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.

Manages to be a much more creative and coherent superhero picture than "Spider-Man 3" ever hoped to be.

With jokes packed as tightly together as sliced cheese, the flick's comedy axiom seems to be: Never give the audience a pause to second-guess their laughter

Mark Olsen

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.

Tiresome, generic spoof is all about crude humor.

It's a bit late in the game for Superhero Movie, which was never going to fly, and barely crawls.

Globe and Mail

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.

Pablo Villaça
Cinema em Cena

Não tão desastroso quanto outras imitações baratas das produções do ZAZ, mas ainda assim apelativo e irregular.

It was unbelievably bad. Not that funny either!

Better than other spoof movies but it has to much of a "been there done that" far to familiar feel to it.
