%% 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 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
* EnsembleDarkhorse: The [[Film/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory Willy Wonka]] character from ''Epic Movie'', mainly because he's played by [[Film/BackToTheFuture Crispin Glover]].
** Out of the movies, the most enjoyable might be Disaster movie, simply because viewers get to see Kim Kardashian (the actual person not an imitation), get killed.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: 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''.
** 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 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.
* WereStillRelevantDammit: Their 2013 offering ''The Starving Games'' crosses a new threshold by referencing AngryBirds and Double Rainbow.
