Actually, the MadTV stars here can be funny. Nicole Parker slayed as Ashlee Simpson during her early run on the show, but for reasons only the producers can tell me, it was put to bed (I haven't watched the show lately, but did they actually lampoon Ashlee when her new album came out). Now all she's doing is rehashing sketches with Britney Spears and Ellen DeGeneres.

Same goes for Crista Flannigan, who I thought had potential, but is going down the shitter. Honestly, my heart couldn't be any more shattered considering the talent wasted.

Nah, I'm just kidding.

Back to Disaster Movie. I'm surprised Seltzer and Friedman are still working. Aside from the Hulk spoof where they got a big guy (the new T-800, Roland Kickinger) to play the Hulk, the rest is tired Hannah Montana horseshit (how hard can it be to spoof this bitch - sorry, Miley fans, but I put a bullet to my head hearing her shit).

I'm curious: in what way do teenagers "flock to these movies?" "Date Movie" (the highest grossing of the previous three) earned just under $50 million and had a production budget of roughly $20 million. A profit of $30 million is hardly what I would call a hit, especially considering that most of its gross came from the opening weekend. That they earn so little suggests the opposite of what you said--once the terrible word-of-mouth hits, they sink like a stone.

Nicole Parker and Crista Flanagan are actually great on MADtv. When I saw the trailer for this and they were in it, I threw up a little bit. Seriously, they should know better (paychecks are tempting though). Oh well, I'm waiting for Scary Movie 5. At least the Scary Movies make me laugh :).

Actually, I think this is the best movie so far in the Freidberg-Seltzer ouevre (smirk).
Well, it's at least as good as "Date Movie" anyway, and a lot better than "Epic Movie" or "Meet the Spartans".

Just as "Date Movie" benefited from having the likable Alyson Hannigan in the lead role, "Disaster Movie" has Nicole Parker and Crista Flanagan, who bring a lot of their sketch comedy experience from Mad Tv to this movie.

Parker had only brief little cameo roles in MTS, but here she is on screen a lot as Gisele the Enchanted Princess, and she is hilarious. And Flanagan is simply too talented for this movie, period. She's the only one who attempts to act at all here. As the Juno character, she does a great job of mimicking Ellen Page's speech patterns and mannerisms from that movie.

The movie's not great, or even good, but I laughed a few times, which is more than I can say of their other movies.

There's something really comforting about knowing that the worst looking movie trailer of the year is in fact one of the worst movies of the year. I still don't understand how you can actually sit through the full length version...I get totally disgusted after about 30 seconds of trailer...

I'm going to personally stand outside a theater screening this movie and Falcon Punch everyone that walks in to see it.

Ohgodno

these guys are the uwe boll of comedy... except that uwe's comedy "postal" has a higher rating than this movie.

thats right guys. you're so terrible that you're worse than uwe boll doing a genre he's not even used to. well done. ::clap clap clap::

Oh, and for the record, I havent seen any of the "____ movie"s. because you can tell how god awful they are.

i get mad just thinking about how little money i have and how much these no-talent losers have. I'm going to go play gears of war to vent some frustration...

I'm hoping that Friedberg and Seltzer find a new career that doesn't involve "entertaining" people.

They are a disgrace to movie making.

Jamal

I'm hoping that Friedberg and Seltzer find a new career that doesn't involve "entertaining" people.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Actually, they're already thinking of new ways to entertain people..........they'll either be male prostitutes or end up on the sunset strip holding signs that say "WILL FILM MOVIE 4 FOOD"

James!

I agree 100%!

I just watched it and I thought it was HI-LARIOUS Nicole Parker, I thought was absoilutely amazing in this movie as Giselle, and the main reason in which I stumbled upon this thread was because I enjoyed her acting and singing and mockery so much I HAD to google the movie and give her my thumbs up! I really have grown to love and respect her as a comedian and as an actress as well!
