User Review

How???

Rating: 6/10

It doesn't make any sense, Date Movie, Epic Movie, Meet the Spartans are all candidates for my worst movie of all time. So why did I enjoy this movie so much? I don't like the cast but they work incredibly hard to make a half decent script into something highly amusing. A welcome return for Zucker style silliness and less pathetic attempts at parodies, there are also hints at intelligent humour and nods to other classic spoofs. There is also a truly hilarious moment involving Tom Cruise played to perfection by Miles Fisher.

Seriously it is truly hilarious in places, I am surprised but by no means ashamed to recommend this for anyone in need of a topical or silly laugh.
