Scary Movie screenwriters Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer join forces to parody the "biggest" movies ever to hit the silver screen in this comedy that gives such popular box-office hits as Pirates of the Caribbean and Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe the same treatment that Scary Movie gave to the slasher subgenre. A virtual smorgasbord of spoof, Epic Movie tells the tale of four fully grown orphans: one the victim of snakes that attacked her plane, another raised by a kindly Louvre curator, the third a Mexican "libre" wrestling refuge, and the last an average mutant from an "X"-community. When the curious quartet visits a sprawling chocolate factory, they stumble across a magical wardrobe which transports them to the enchanted land of Gnarnia. It seems that the wondrous fantasy land has recently fallen under the spell of the evil White Bitch (Jennifer Coolidge), and in order to bring peace back to Gnarnia these four bumbling mortals will have to join forces with a charismatic pirate, a painfully sincere group of aspiring wizards, and one particularly libidinous lion. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
this was quite a disappointment. while sometimes it can be funny to make jokes about pop culture, this movie rode way too heavily on the coat tails of successful ones without developing a style or decent plot of its own.
I don't know where to start with this movie. I laughed maybe once and that was about an hour into the movie. They made fun of great movies and i'm guessing they did this because they wanted to be a great movie too. Narnia, Pirates, Superman, Charlie and the chocolate factory and countless others. Literaly, there was probably 15 movies this disaster parodied off of. It would be more entertaing to pick up fly crap out of pepper than to EVER watch this movie again! Even the first 5 minutes! It also had the WORST ending EVER!! For good spoof movies, watch Airplane! or the Naked gun series. Leslie Neilsin does a great job in those movies. I am SO glad that i found the movie online and i watched it there. I regreted the fact i actually wanted to watch this. It would be more fun to get a route canal, or buy a bra for your girlfriend in Victorias Secret (Alone) This movie was terrible. Go see the "Scary Movie" series or The Naked gun series. Anything but this unfunny crap-fest
