Did You Know?
To date (2011), one of two movies written and directed by both Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, not to have the word "movie" in the title. The other is
When Xerxes threatens to write Sparta out of the the history books, Leonidas replies: "Well that's fine by me, Xerxes, because I can't read." Previously, he had read the name tattoos on Queen Margo's back, some of them out loud.
Adjust your sword boy, it's digging into my back.
But I'm not wearing my sword.
Carry on then.
Jason Friedberg & Aaron Seltzer are hacks
Anyone who would remotely consider themselves to be a fan of the spoof
genre would reject this trash. I'll be the first one to admit that
taste is subjective, but the guys that made this movie lack any sort of
talent for this type of movie
I implore anyone to check out the following spoof movies:
Airplane! Top Secret The Naked Gun The Naked Gun 2 1/2 Hot Shots Hot
Shots: Part Deux Kentucky Fried Movie (yes, its "old" but a classic
none the less) Mafia! BASEketball Scary Movie 3 Sacry Movie 4
Not all of these are great. Many are a product of their era. Some are
downright "average" spoof movies, at best. But compared to "Meet the
Spartans" (or Epic Movie or Date Movie) they are a BILLION times
better. And they have one thing in common… Zucker / Abrahams / Zucker
(also must give props to writer Pat Proft). These guys INVENTED this
genre. Watch these films and you will realize Jason Friedberg & Aaron
Seltzer are talentless hacks who think just making a reference to pop
culture is funny.
If Jason Friedberg & Aaron Seltzer are reading this, I suggest you
might want to watch these movies as well. You might learn a thing or
