Superhero Movie - DVD review

SUPERHERO MOVIE (**) - Starring Drake Bell, Sara Paxton, Christopher McDonald, Leslie Nielsen, Kevin Hart, Marion Ross, Brent Spiner, Pamela Anderson, Tracy Morgan, Regina Hall, Keith David, Robert Joy, Jeffrey Tambor, Robert Hays, Nicole Sullivan and Kurt Fuller.
Written & directed by Craig Mazin.

I don't think I'm ever going to like a parody movie again. I'm too old. In my thirties doesn't feel old, but these are clearly aimed at teens and pre-teens. Fart jokes? Check. Nose-picking jokes? Check. Puking? Check. Poop? Check. Pee-pee? Check. Airplane was funny. Naked Gun was funny. The novelty has worn off, and we get these every few months. The less-talented team behind Meet the Spartans already has Disaster Movie opening in August and Sci-Fi Movie opening in February 2009. We're doomed. Doooomed!

But these are the guys behind Scary Movie 4, which actually made me chuckle a couple times. So Superhero Movie throws out a gag every 15 seconds, and if one of 20 work, it's a hit. I'd say one out of 40 work.
