    Writer-directors Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer basically reprise the tired formula from their earlier efforts, which is to throw in as many pop culture references as possible to cover up the lack of any real wit. show more

    The best thing in Meet the Spartans is the swift kick in the bombast it delivers to the oh-no-not-us homoeroticism of "300." show more

    The musical number that runs during the closing credits funnier than anything that precedes it, which isn't saying much. show more

    It’s rare that a movie makes me ill these days, and it’s rare that I can see a movie and hate the people behind it with such abhorrence, but Meet the Spartans rises to the challenge. show more

    Hey, guys, when you repurpose a disco hit to poke fun at gay men, not only do you look like assholes, you look like assholes who rip their jokes off of YouTube. show more

    Less classic Mel Brooks than middling "Best Week Ever." show more

    Meet the Spartans is a mild improvement over their "Epic Movie," which is like saying that a debilitating fever is more fun than appendicitis, but what’s shocking is how lazy it is, which is a shame for former UK child star/pop singer Sean Maguire, whose Gerard Butler impersonation is spot-on. show more

    Overkill is what Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer do best: as the uncontested titans of the parody genre (with fingers in everything from the “Scary Movie” franchise to the more recent “Epic Movie”) they continue to prove that ridiculing other movies is much easier than making your own. show more

    Lazy, lame and painfully unfunny, Meet the Spartans is yet another scrambled-genre parody. show more

    I saw 300 like 2 weeks ago, This movie was terrible, not even worth watching, There was a time when I loved spoof movies but it seems the spoofs are going downhill and simply made for the sake of making a movie. It was really bad. It wouldn't be so bad if it was a clip here or there, but I just thought altogether it was a waste of time and money.

    Whoever made this movie should be fined by the Department of Consumer Protection, because it was a sham designed to steal our money. Screw these Hollywood millionaires who are just "jacking" us up for our $9.00, and putting out such bullcrap.

    no this movie wasnt the greatest, but it was comical. to all the people who trash spoof's should find better use of their time. No, they don't make sense. Yes, they're a bit over the top and mabey to mature for minors but it's the day and age we live in. I've seen worse things on cartoon-network. All in all i give this movie a 6 outta 10. Catch it in the theatre's once, mabey twice.. DVD purchace not recommended.

    I thought it would be funny becaues I love Epic Movie . On a scale from 1 to 10 it is negative 100000. For any one who dose not like rated R movies dont watch ( it should be rated R ) . This is worse than the Care Bears movie that used to be my least favorite.

    I am a huge fan of spoof's. My sister and I really enjoyed the movie and went back to see it again. For me spoof's aren't supposed to make sense. The only thing there supposed to do is make you laugh at ridiculous situations. Spoof's are in an entirely different genre than movies like Superbad so, to compare the two is not accurate. If you want to watch a comedy that has a plot don't see these types of movies you'd be better of watching "Knocked Up". If you like to laugh at people making fun of other movies or celebrities then Spoof's are your types of movies.
