It's just annoying that shit like this gets made and that people enjoy it.
I'm not picking on you, so please don't take it that way, but I have another perspective and I'll throw this "food for thought" your way. I was browsing some of the other threads last night, and I see that you commented in the "Big Brother 10" thread and apparently watch and enjoy the show. I would venture to say that there are plenty of people who feel about BB the same way you feel about this movie.

Different strokes, different folks and all that. My point is, watch what you want to enjoy and don't worry about what other people see and you be much less annoyed.

I'll put Walk Hard the Dewey Cox story up there on the same level as Airplane! as far as spoof movies go.


Oh man, remember the first Hot Shots. That movie was comedy gold.
Oh shit, when he gingerly cooked that breakfast on her stomach I almost had an aneurysm laughing. It really does deserve to be up there with Airplane and Naked Gun.

Walk Hard was a pretty funny movie, though I did think they relied a bit too much on the "cox" jokes, even if the character and title name did basically beg for it.

I felt the need to post my own response. First time for everything!

These movies... I can't deal with them anymore. Too much for my head to handle. 'course, doesn't matter what I think, plenty of dumbass teenagers and drunk frats will still go see it anyway, thus bankrolling another dozen of 'em. Mark your calenders, folks: Noir Movie hits theaters in August 2013! That is, if the Mayan apocalypse doesn't happen. Let's pray that it does.

Now that was funny. I'd rather watch this video in a 24-hour repetition than go see that 'movie'.

To be honest, I think this might be the first time one of these movies doesn't earn a lot. I was at a packed showing of The Dark Knight, 500 people in the cinema, and not 1 laugh. Usually there's a load of laughs, even if I don't understand what's funny about it, but not this time.

Another parody of these parodies.

They quote one of the reviews that wish the people involved die of "some form of nutsack-cancer."

I saw SuperHero Movie, knowing what I was getting myself into. It was not a great movie, nor even a good movie, but I could tell their hearts were in the right place when they made it. They did manage to pull a coherent story together and it didn't feel like a bunch of scenes from other movies randomly strung together. I'll say the same thing about The Comebacks as well. They weren't Airplane! or the Naked Gun, but what is?
I don't think Superhero Movie was done by the same people as the others.

The guy who wrote and directed Superhero Movie also wrote Scary Movie 3 and Scary Movie 4.

They're not even trying anymore. Naked Gun and Hot Shots, they had a PLOT! And when they spoofed movies, they put their own spin on things and didn't simply rehash the scenes. Plus they actually had regular jokes that didn't involve spoofing.

You know a character spoof or a cameo is bad if you have to say the name of the person.

jezz... these movies are so bad who in their right mind watches them?

I think most of the people who pay to see these movies are just looking for a cool, dark place to talk to their friends, make out, and send text messages.

I've seen Hellboy 2 and TDK, so I'm pretty much done with movies for the rest of the year.
