%% Only YMMV tropes relating to their work, not about the directors themselves.
* AcceptableTargets: Everyone, but particularly gays, little people and women.
** Meta-example, in the movies themselves, which are this for pretty much the whole internet.
* AwardSnub: A rare case of UsefulNotes/GoldenRaspberryAward snub. So far all of their nominated works won nothing.
* BileFascination: Basically why most of their films gross more than twice their budget.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: The [[Film/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory Willy Wonka]] character from ''Epic Movie'', mainly because he's played by [[Film/BackToTheFuture Crispin Glover]].
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: The jokes in ''Disaster Movie'' about Amy Winehouse's drinking are especially disturbing after her alcoholism finally killed her.
* GrowingTheBeard: Relatively speaking. Their work has gotten more sporadic as of late and, while still ''very'' poorly reviewed and generally considered bad, many have noted that the filmmakers are at least now attempting to more accurately satirize the films they're referencing and not cram as many random bits of pop culture in as possible.
* JustHereForGodzilla: Out of the movies, the most enjoyable might be ''Disaster Movie'', simply because viewers get to see Kim Kardashian (as herself, not an imitation) get killed.
* 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''.
** The Advertising/HeadOn skit from ''Disaster Movie'', often considered to be the best joke in the entire film.
* {{Padding}}: ''Meet the Spartans''' total runtime is 86 minutes, but about twenty minutes of that is extra padding before the credits roll.
* ShallowParody: Not surprising, since the duo have admitted they generally just watch the trailers of their target and go from there.
* SnarkBait: Their films generally gain this reputation due to their poor quality.
%% * SoBadItsGood: Their ''entire'' filmography
%% * 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.
* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Creator/AlysonHannigan, like Creator/JoshMeyers, has been widely agreed to be one of the few good things in ''Film/DateMovie''.
* WereStillRelevantDammit: Their 2013 offering ''The Starving Games'' crosses a new threshold by referencing ''VideoGame/AngryBirds'' and Double Rainbow.
* WTHCastingAgency: Even by the standards of these films, Kim Kardashian stands out as being woefully miscast as one of the main protagonists in ''Disaster Movie''.
