100% laugh-free trailer for DISASTER MOVIE. Ugh.

Don't watch this.

Honestly, the fact that I took time out of my life to (a) watch the trailer and (b) post a thread about it on TBBS will really make me re-evaluate my life's priorities.

There wasn't a single aspect of any disaster movie in there.

Amy Winehouse, Batman, Hannah Montana, Iron Man, Hulk, Sex and the City, Juno, Enchanted...

You know, maybe this is the one that just might not see much in financial take. The first in this "franchise" to not be financially viable, because the public will see them for what they are and see other films.

...I can dream.

Anyone who produces a movie with "Movie" in the title from here on out should be beaten to death. Unapologetic money grubbing lack of creative talent at it's worse. Theatres full of 15 year old texting each other "watch" shit like this, that's about it.

The first one or two Scary Movies actually weren't too bad, but the rest of them - ALL of them - just suck.

Hopefully this will be disaster of a "movie," and an end to this franchise.

I know, I know, somebody pinch me, I must be dreaming.

That just reaches incredible levels of bad. I mean, the fact that trailer takes a joke straight out of the Meet the Zohan (or whatever the name of that Adam Sandler movie was) trailer is saying something. That's not a parody, that's a rip-off of something that wasn't even funny in the first place!

Tragically - no, devastatingly - for all of us is that it won't be the end, simply because these "films" are produced on budgets that average around $3.00. So as long as a few morons go see it or rent the DVD, they've got their impetus to make another installment in their (do the air finger quotes with me) "fran-chise".

These movies cost nothing and people pay to see them. That's why the team behind Date Movie, Epic Movie and Meet the Spartans are still at it.

There's no story and all they want to do is string together scenes from other movies. But just rehashing the scenes doesn't make it funny!!! And a "Don't vote for Pedro" shirt is not how you lampoon Napoleon Dynamite.

I saw the trailer in the cinema, and not 1 person in there laughed. So it could very well live up to its name.

I could not agree more, except I'll add that the people who pay to go see shit like this, or rent the DVD, also need to be beaten to death.
