If they can make successful spoofs of Hollywood movies in the Scary Movie series and even make a spoof of romantic comedies in Date Movie, why can’t they make spoof of fantasy and epic movies? Yes, why not, indeed, even if the product looks sick and hardly funny?
Welcome to Epic Movie, a royal spoof on the films you saw last year, from The Da Vinci Code to Pirates of the Caribbean, from Casino Royale to 300, everything at one place. What more do you want? Even if you want more you won’t get it, so be satisfied with what you have.
The film is the story of four orphans who meet their adventures in unlikely places. While Lucy falls into the world of The Da Vinci Code, Edward gets a chance to visit Willy Wanka while yet another, Susan is being adopted to the family of warring Mr and Mrs Smith and the last orphan Peter finds himself among the X-Men.
What follows are a crazy plot twists that make you revisit all the major Hollywood blockbusters you have seen in recent times. And unfortunately you haven’t seen them you may find it hard to appreciate the film.
That happens with the parodies. If relies so heavily on the original that if you do not have any idea of it, then you may miss the whole point.
So here’s it is. You can go to Epic Movie just to check how much you know about the movies. It can be quite funny to just to spot the original film in the spoof. And just that!
