Even my Computer hated it....
Okay, so my friend and I decided we'd have a movie night, and waited until at least 1 AM to start watching these movies. We figured that we'd have a better chance of enjoying the movies if we were really tired.
Surprisingly, as bad as Epic Movie was, and even though Meet the Spartans was worse, they did have some merit. Both of them had some genuinely funny moments and were, at times, clever. Those moments were few, but they were there. Those two at least tried to follow a plot.
And then we popped in Disaster Movie. We figured that now that it was early morning and we were really tired that it would be kinda funny. We were wrong. We probably should have gotten drunk and/or high as well.
There was an unfunny intro that eventually led into something similar to a plot. I got my hopes up just a bit, only for the plot to absolutely stall. We're instead introduced to an overly long party scene that seems to exist for the sole purpose of jamming in as many "parodies" as possible. I don't know how long this scene went on, but I think it might have been half an hour (but it felt twice that). Anyway, the plot FINALLY picks up again only for absolutely nothing to happen again for a while. All this time, they're jamming in Shallow Parody
after Shallow Parody and having Overly Long Gags
galore. And then, sometime shortly after a pregnant woman is gruesomely ripped apart (in a "comedy," no less), the movie freezes up, and Windows Media Player refuses to work. That's right...the movie was so bad that my laptop didn't even want to play it anymore.
From what I watched of Disaster Movie, there was really only one thing I enjoyed: Juno. I haven't actually seen Juno
, so I'm not entirely sure what the original character was like, but I think they tried taking her character and making jabs at her mannerisms. Of course, it was those mannerisms they were "parodying" that I enjoyed. I think the only time during that movie I laughed was when Juno said, completely deadpan
, "I'm lactating. Moo."
Long story short, I didn't think it was possible for a movie to be So Bad Its Horrible
before this film. I thought they'd all have a bit of Narm Charm
. Not so here. Disaster Movie is unclever, plotless, disgusting, and altogether painful to watch.
