YMMV: Seltzer and Friedberg
  • Acceptable Targets: Everyone, but particularly gays, little people and women.
    • Meta-example, in the movies themselves, which are this for pretty much the whole internet.
  • Award Snub: A rare case of Golden Raspberry Award snub. So far all of their nominated works won nothing.
  • Bile Fascination: Basically why most of their films gross more than twice their budget.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: The Willy Wonka character from Epic Movie, mainly because he's played by Crispin Glover.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: The jokes in Disaster Movie about Amy Winehouse's drinking are especially disturbing after her alcoholism finally killed her.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Those Goddamned "chipmunks" from Disaster Movie.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Josh Meyers' impersonation of Napoleon Dynamite was widely agreed to be one of the few good things (if not the only good thing) about Date Movie.
    • The 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.
  • Shallow Parody: Not surprising, since the producers have admitted they generally just watch the trailers and go from there.
  • They Just Didn't Care: 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.
