%% Only YMMV tropes relating to their work, not about the directors themselves.
* AcceptableTargets:
** Everyone, but particularly gays, little people, and women.
** A 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.
* HilariousInHindsight: One of many BigLippedAlligatorMoments in ''Epic Movie'' is a ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl''-themed parody of "[[Music/TheLonelyIsland Lazy]] [[Series/SaturdayNightLive Sunday]]". Cut to 2011 with the song "Jack Sparrow".
* 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:
** The "[[Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks chipmunks]]" from ''Disaster Movie''.
** The [[Film/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory Willy Wonka]] {{expy}} in ''Epic Movie'' plays up his creepiness by making him downright ''cannibalistic''.
* 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. Given that often the movies parodied haven't even been released at time of filming, it's really all they've got.
* 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 these films attempt.
** This is especially visible in ''Disaster Movie'':
*** The nightmarish, stiff Chipmunk puppets and piss-poor animatronics used for the [[WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda Po]] parody are standouts in an already ugly-looking film.
*** It's obvious they just used some sort of distortion effect to crush the Film/IronMan, [[Film/TheDarkKnight Batman]] and [[Film/TheIncredibleHulk Hulk]] parodies under falling cows. Said cows also look like wooden sculptures more than anything.
*** The Hulk parody is clearly wearing a pair of green-painted underwear when his shorts rip off. Bare in mind, he was ''supposed'' to be nude.
** ''Meet the Spartans'' has the terrifying [[WesternAnimation/ShrekTheThird ogre]] and Leonidas baby puppets[[note]]made even more jarring by showing the audience a ''real'' baby between the two.[[/note]] and the "[[PeopleInRubberSuits obviously a midget]]" [[WesternAnimation/HappyFeet penguin]] at the beginning. "Xerxestron" is also pretty hokey looking in and of itself.
* TookTheBadFilmSeriously:
** Creator/AlysonHannigan, like Creator/JoshMeyers, has been widely agreed to be one of the few good things in ''Film/DateMovie''.
** Similarly, Maiara Walsh in ''The Starving Games'' absolutely brings her A game and shows total dedication to the material. With better material, it could have been a breakout performance.
* UncannyValley: The puppets used in the films such as the {{Franchise/Shrek}} baby in ''Meet The Spartans'' and the [[Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks chipmunks]] and Franchise/KungFuPanda from ''Disaster Movie'' mentioned above looked really off
* 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, Creator/KimKardashian stands out as being woefully miscast as one of the main protagonists in ''Disaster Movie''.
