A 2007 movie by Seltzer and Friedberg. It is one of their most well known, and also most infamous movies. It's also their fourth movie.


  • Actor Allusion: The White Bitch tells Edward about her white castle, which turns out to be an actual White Castle. Edward remarks he feels like he's been there before.
  • Beauty Inversion: Carmen Electra in the film plays a parody of Mystique, and initially looks absolutely gorgeous, especially since it basically shows off her entire naked body, only with certain placed scales to hide her nipples and private areas. Later on, she even gets a sex scene with the main character Peter, where she seductively expands her chest and ass at his request... and then he starts requesting some rather ugly and disgusting features. The absolutely stunning Carmen Electra goes from a stunning near naked woman with a larger rack and ass, to a fat and flabby grandma with a unibrow and crossed eyes. Followed by a sloppy make out and hardcore granny sex with Peter...
  • Big Ol' Unibrow: There's a scene where Mystique asks what Peter wants her to shapeshift before they get in on. He asks first for more conventionally attractive features, but then he asks for a monobrow. She does a double take, but he insists, referring to it as a "mamabrow", leading to her shapeshifting a monobrow.
  • Body Paint: Carmen Electra plays a spoof of Mystique who is very slutty and sexy. She's covered in blue body paint with some prosthetics to hide her nipples and privates. Later on in the film, she seduces the main character Peter into having sex with her. Since she's a shapeshifter, he eventually asks her to get fatter and older. To do this, she morphs into another, much fatter actress in the same makeup, Lichelle D. Ebner. Which of course turns Peter on.
  • Breast Expansion: Parodied; the Mystique-expy played by Carmen Electra seduces one of the main characters, who asks her to increase her breast size. She obliges, then does the same thing with her hips. Then the requests get increasingly bizarre, like asking her to grow a unibrow and make herself older and fatter.
  • Charlie and the Chocolate Parody: The first to pastiche the 2005 movie specifically, and by using Fergie's "Fergalicious" in a Willy Wonka context ended up spoofing the music video for that song too. Such Narrow Parody is par for the course with Seltzer and Friedberg, of course.
  • Chubby Chaser: During the scene where Mystique asks Peter what she should shapeshift into before they have sex, he at first asks for more conventionally attractive features such as a larger ass and a bigger breast size. He then requests a monobrow which makes her do a double-take before she goes through with it. His final request is "big flabby grandma arms" and "bingo wings like a fat blue Britney Spears". She's disgusted, but goes through with the request, getting incredibly fat and flabby, showing off her bingo wings. He's noticeably more turned on than any of the previous requests, even drooling. This is the final request he makes before they get it on.
  • Deus ex Machina: The ending. When it looks like Peter is going to lose, he just randomly finds the magic remote from Click in the grass, (which, he of course helpfully tells the audience, is the remote from Click).
  • Exploding Closet: Lucy approaches the closet leading to Gnarnia in awe. She hesitantly pulls the doors open... and screams right before she's buried in miscellaneous junk. A woman wearing either a bikini (in the normal cut) or nothing at all (in the unrated cut) then steps out and warns Lucy not to go in there before leaving.
  • Fake-Out Make-Out: Susan ends up being persuaded into chugging a couple gallons of beer and it goes about as well as one might suspect. She ends up puking out a couple gallons of puke on the crowds who were cheering her on, grossing them out in the process. She clearly needs to puke more, but doesn't want to puke on anymore of the crowd and also clearly doesn't want to gross them out, so she finds an archer close by and locks lips with him, not letting him escape by holding his head in place... she clearly was trying to make it seem like she was just making out with the archer, but everyone quickly realized that the poor archer was getting puke pumped down his throat with no escape. This is said to be the main reason why no one showed up to the battle the following day.
  • Karmic Transformation: A parody of Mystique seems to be a rather popular woman in school and makes fun of people like Peter, who is considered a loser. Later, when she decides to seduce and have sex with Peter, due to him turning out to be a king, she lets him request what she should shapeshift before they have sex. Despite starting out with rather normal requests like bigger breasts, a larger ass, and a Badonkadonk, he ends up throwing those requests away for a monobrow and for her to transform into an incredibly obese and flabby woman before he pulls her down to have sex with him, essentially turning her into a rather unattractive (though not to Peter) loser herself.
  • Teens Are Monsters: The X-Men parodies behave a lot more like high school bullies, with Mystique bluntly turning down Peter's invitation to the homecoming dance and Wolverine shoving him against a locker after threatening him not to talk to "his girl". Even Magneto (despite being much older than the group) gets in on the fun, using his magnetic powers to cause another locker's door to open up and slam right into his face.
  • I Ate WHAT?!: Edward notices what he thinks is the chocolate river, and quickly gulps some "chocolate" up in enjoyment. After a beat, Willy points out, "That's actually the sewer line," causing Edward to gag in disgust.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Willy reveals that the secret to why his candy tastes so good is that he harvests real human parts, and proceeds to get his Oompa-Loompas to demonstrate on the four orphans.
  • Negative Continuity: Main characters suffer numerous life-threatening and traumatic injuries and are just fine in the next scene.
  • Overly-Long Gag: Silas shooting Mr. Tumnus to death.
  • Redundant Parody: The Wolverine parody uses his middle claw to flip Edward the finger. This would be a valid parody of the character... if the real Wolverine didn't do the exact same thing in the first X-Men movie.
  • Shoot the Shaggy Dog: The film ends with the four lead characters being inexplicably flattened by a runaway water wheel, making the whole movie even more pointless.
  • Tongue on the Flagpole: Complete with the tongue getting torn off. Since the movie has no continuity, Lucy's tongue is fine anyway for the rest of the film.
  • Universal Remote Control: A parody of the Click remote, which the characters use to win the battle of Narnia.
  • Vulgar Humor: The "uncut" version apparently decides that the best way to improve an already overly long vomiting scene is to make it even longer.
  • Yellow Snow: Peter decides to spend his first few moments in Gnarnia pissing in the snow; he spells his name, plays Sudoku, and draws Nicole Richie before he gets bored. Near the end of the movie, when they're all old rulers of Gnarnia, Peter peeing on a coat leads the four to rediscover the way back home through the wardrobe.
