Date Movie (2006)
A lot of perfectly good film show their cards early, establish a unique premise and let the audience explore a topic at a leisurely pace, without much in terms of surprise. this film is not one of those films.
The first must-see film of the year.
There's no way I can possibly love it entirely but I just think its ridiculously bad, but enjoyable at the same time.
The plot isn't so bad, but the pace of storytelling is too slow which makes people bored. Certain moments are so obvious and unnecessary for the main plot. I would've fast-forwarded those moments if it was an online streaming. The ending looks like implying a sequel, not sure if this movie will get one
Is it absolutely ridiculous and tasteless? Well yes, but allow your immature side to have a little fun. It may be because I watched it by myself as a young teen that this movie holds its glee for me but I still laughed really hard and had a good time when I saw it again more recently (6-8 years later). Don't go into the movie expecting something sophisticated or classy and you can have a good laugh. Also it is fun to watch out for all the references to other movies (since it is a spoof movie after all.) Also props to the two main actors Allison Hannigan and Adam Campell for being the ones that truly make this movie comical.
Listen here you little #@$%heads, Just because you think the writers made a bad movie doesn't me you should give them death threats. I would slap all of you but its unfortunate that I cannot. Friedberg and Seltzer are not perfect directors in any means, but I think they're movies are funny. VERY, VERY funny. Very few people are afraid to talk about movies like this because if they say they like it their opinion is silenced with death threats. Stop being ignorant you guys. This movie is not hilarious by any means but it is funny in some parts.Julia Jones is a overweight Greek, Indian, Japanese Jew who works at her parent's Greek restaurant. She meets the perfect man and becomes beautiful later on. They plan to get married but will her farther approve of this and will another woman get in the way? The Casting for this film was the start of casting the same people in all of their movies. Tony Cox, Adam Campbell and Carmen Electra are most of the people who show up in these kinds of movies.Friedberg and Seltzer prove that you don't need good jokes to make a good movie. You can have good and bad jokes as well to make a good movie. I love slapstick in these type of movies because they work so well. For me that is, because my taste in comedy is different then everyone Else's. One of my favorite jokes is the beginning of the film where Julia dances on the street to get a man but fails and falls flat.But the second half and third act of this film isn't quite that funny. Sure there is a laugh here and there but its not like there are so many at once. I guess they were being more serious with this movie then any of they're other parodies.Date Movie is not perfect by any means necessary. But it is funny for me. By the way, Im going to be reviewing all of their films. So you just stay tuned for the same stuff! 79/100 B
This movie features a gag where a cat sits on a toilet for over a minute while disgusting noises play.I laughed hysterically at this. For the whole scene.This movie is good for the immature-at-heart. Anyone looking for real satire should look elsewhere. A few stretches aren't funny, but enough made me laugh to give this an 8/10.That's really all I can say about the humor. The production quality, acting, and music are all right, though nothing special.Most of the best gags are visual. I don't think the writers know much about verbal comedy.
This film falls far short of "Scary Movie", or it sequel, even in comparison to the terrible third and fourth. And that's really, REALLY, saying something. The jokes are predictable, being composed of pathetic fart jokes, potty humor and random cursing and innuendo. I literally sat through the whole movie with a blank face and wondered what drives a studio to the point of desperation to release this kind of a movie? The only entertainment I got out of this blunder was the "anit-commntary" when I had rented it. You heard me right, an anit-commentary. So, the film makers knew their work was so lackluster they actually paid two critics to make fun of their own creation. I'll be damned. Wow, the only movie that makes you feel stupid for even renting it in the first place.
