%% Only YMMV tropes relating to their work, not about the directors themselves.
* AcceptableTargets: Everyone, but particularly gays, little people and women.
** The movies and the duo themselves are this for pretty much the whole internet.
* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Are they a couple of idiots who CannotTellAJoke and film only what ''they'' think is funny... or are they GenreSavvy in terms of film making and make their parodies for an idiotic target audience?
* AwardSnub: A rare case of GoldenRaspberryAward snub. So far all of their nominated works won nothing.
* BileFascination: Basically why most of their films gross more than twice their budget.
* DudeNotFunny: A huge portion of their parodies often are this.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: The [[Film/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory Willy Wonka]] character from ''Epic Movie'', mainly because he's played by [[Film/BackToTheFuture Crispin Glover]].
* HarsherInHindsight: The jokes in ''Disaster Movie'' about Amy Winehouse's drinking are especially disturbing after her alcoholism finally killed her.
* NightmareFuel: Those Goddamned "chipmunks" from ''Disaster Movie''.
* OneSceneWonder: Josh Meyers' impersonation of Film/NapoleonDynamite was widely agreed to be one of the few good things (if not the ''only'' good thing) about ''Date Movie''.
* {{Padding}}: ''Meet the Spartans''' total runtime is 86 minutes, but the actual movie (before the end credits) is between ''69-70 minutes''.
* ShallowParody: Not surprising, since the producers have admitted they generally just watch the trailers and go from there.
* SpecialEffectsFailure: The effects are just as cheap as the parodies they try to do. ''Disaster Movie'' especially.
* TheyJustDidntCare: To a near jaw-dropping degree. Jokes are usually painfully obvious, show no knowledge of the subject being parodied and are quick to rely on toilet humour, gay jokes and irrelevant pop culture references.
