    By-the-numbers screen parody fails to resurrect an increasingly tired genre. show more

    How can you tell the target age for Superhero Movie is exactly 13 1/2 years? Because most of the jokes are Internet-related. show more

    Puerile and idiotic it may be, but Superhero Movie is nonetheless smarter than most of its lowbrow brethren in the Hollywood sub-sub-category known as the spoof movie. show more

    This abysmal "Spider-Man" satire has more in common with the lamentable spate of "Epic" and "Date Movies" than Zucker and Nielsen's truly funny "Naked Gun" series. show more

    What's shocking about Superhero Movie is not that it's been advertised to death on Nickelodeon to impressionable children, but that it's a completely on-the-nose satire of "Spider-Man.” show more

    This super-powered spoof just doesn't fly. show more

    Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle

    It's a tonally confused comedy which, for once, doesn't go far enough comedically. show more

    Seems to have been given the comedy equivalent of blood thinner. It has the blazing satirical boldness to skewer the first Tobey Maguire Spider-Man -- and, amazingly, not much else. show more

    The very act of writing critically about Superhero Movie inspires something of an existential crisis -- no one likely to turn out for it is reading this review, and anybody reading this review is probably not inclined to see it under any circumstances. show more

    Given the abysmal quality of recent spoof pics, it's saying something that Superhero Movie provides a fairly steady stream of midsized laughs -- and even the 40% or so of gags that just lie there aren't actively painful. show more

    Might I add that this movie is hilarious, if you dont have a sense of humor or you dont like comedy movies then dont see this movie. This movie is filled with hilarious scenes and I loved this movie,yo lyke really. It was very enjoyable, I love Comedy movies and Horror movies. And just as a respectful note, most comedy movies or stuff like this arent meant for kids under 13,. Thats why, I mean thats why we got kid movies' Rated G. And teen movies, PG-13, R. Otherwise this was a great movie.Kevin Hart is hilarious, Drake Bell iz funny, Leslie Nielson his just plain out knee-slapping,rofl hilarious.

    I saw this movie with my family, and it was just rude, crude and not for little kids. Me and my sister are (19 and 16) and we saw it with my mom and all she could say was "she was embarrassed to watch a movie like this one with her children." Some parts were funny. I think that kids should not see this movie.

    I went to see it TWICE with my friends, and we were laughing through the entire movie. It was hilarious, and the fact that Drake Bell was in it made it even better. If you liked Scary Movie and hilarious parodies, go see this movie!
