From the creators of ScaryMovie and DateMovie comes this tongue-in-cheek parody of the sword-and-sandal epics, dubbed Meet the Spartans. The 20th Century Fox production was written and directed by the filmmaking team of JasonFriedberg and AaronSeltzer. Sure, Leonidas may have nothing more than a cape and some leather underwear to protect him from the razor-sharp swords of his Persian enemies, but that wont stop the brave leader and his team of 13 warriors from defending their beloved homeland against a powerful invading force that includes the likes of a mutant ParisHilton, the Transformers, the Ghost Rider, and Rocky Balboa.

We have taken some photos of "Meet the Spartans". They represent actual movie quality.
What did you expect from it? From the director of Epic movie and Datemovie, you will know what jokes it will have. The same stupid anddisgusting jokes. Date movie is boring. At least I got some funwatching Epic movie. And come Meet the spartan, I did get some funwatching it but thought they should have done more better with it andnot make it look like a low-budget movie. Honestly, I like spoof moviesas I like seeing how they poke fun of movies. It is not bad but it is abit boring. The only interesting part that perk me up is the warscenes.Story: It is simple, the same story line for 300. Following the plot,there are spoofs of other movies being chunk into it. They spoofSpider-man, Deal or no deal and transformers etc. Sometimes, it is goodto see people coming up with creative ideas for movies. Not that badbut they should think of better ideas.Overall: If you enjoyed Date movie and Epic movie and other spoofmovies like Scary movies, you would probably like this. Nothing else tosay. Hopefully, in future, they will do spoof movies seriously and notmake them like dumb movies. More spoof movies are going to be made. Forexample, in March, there will be Superhero movie. I hope they don'tmake it like trash. I like superheroes. Other than that, there isreally nothing to say.
There are very few funny scenes. It's completely nonsense. For example, there are scenes with American Idol's judges commenting the Spartans. After 30 minutes, the jokes dried up. Then, it's become very boring.It's still better than Scary movie 3 and Date movie.
Meet the Spartans is a parody of 300. It is basically just a parody ofthe plot, setting, battles, and characters of 300. That is all you needto know.These spoof parody films keep making money off of idiot kids who go seethem. I have seen the Scary Movie films and they were decent mindlessfun. At least they found semi-creative ways to make you laugh, althoughby number 4 it was way over the top. I never watched Epic Movie or DateMovie because many said they were painfully bad. However today I wentto go see Meet the Spartans with a friend.Let me start off, Meet the Spartans is bad movie...a very bad movie!There are zero moments in this dreadful comedy that are creative orvery laugh-inducing, unless your a teenager, or younger, with the humorof an 8 year old. I will admit there are a few little subtle jokes thatmade me crack a smile. But about 98% of the movie is filled withover-the-top gags. However there are not as many gross-out gags asother spoof movies tend to be filled with. But believe me that doeslittle justice for this horrendous parody film.The semi funny scenes involve a Stomp the Yard montage which actuallyis decently chuckle worthy. There is another little scene that involvesBudweiser beer which I may have emitted a laugh at. The subtle jokesinvolved the Spartans skipping all over the place while holding hands.However all the other jokes go way over the top, and ruin anything"Funny" (Bunny ears) about them. For instance there is a scene whereGhost Rider is parodied for about 20 seconds, and there is nothingremotely funny about it. The acting and script were atrocious as I, andeveryone else, expected. The visuals were also obviously just a cheaplooking movie set.The only thing good I can say about Meet the Spartans is at least it ismore focused on the 300 spoof, rather than making fun of 50 moviespacked into one film. Now for the big spoiler, here is everything Meetthe Spartans parodied: 300, Shrek 3, Spider Man 3, Britney Spears,Paris Hilton, Stomp the Yard, Budweiser beer, Gatorade commercials,Sanjaya, American Idol, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Happy Feet,Transformers, Chris Crocker, Grand Theft Auto, Ghost Rider, Deal Or NoDeal, Kevin Federline, and the last I can remember is that show YoMama.At 65 minutes long without credits this film is not at all worth 10dollars for a ticket. It barely even delivers on what it promisesyou...laughs! The most irritating thing about the movie is not even thelame jokes, it's the pop culture references. Enough of these popculture references, they are what exposes this movie's horrible script.I give Meet the Spartans a Zero out of 4. I was tame during this reviewtoo, I could have let loose on it but I kept my cool. Bottom Line: DoNot See This Pick-Pocketing Movie!
I mean, really, why are Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer allowed tomake such utter fools of themselves? These movies have gotten so badthat people aren't even laughing at how terrible they are, now it'smore of a constant groaning at the worse than amateur acting andwriting. Sure, in Epic Movie there were one or two genuinely funnymoments, but those were in the first ten minutes. Somebody should banthese guys from making movies cos they just don't seem to understandhow bad they are.The "jokes" are painfully obvious and executed with such agonizinglypoor acting you might as well be watching 10 year olds act it out. No,I'm sorry, that's insulting the kids! This movie is another nail in thecoffin for this pair of "Comedy Directors", and I use the term comedyloosely. The question is, just how many nails can one coffin hold?There are so many at this stage.I know I've only addressed the acting and the writing, you may beasking "what about the plot?". Well, you already saw the plot. Thismovie is a cheap rip off of 300 and I don't think anybody would hold itagainst the makers of 300 for suing the makers of this movie. In fact,I would welcome it with open arms!Don't waste your money, don't even bother to let this movie waste yourtime. I would give this movie a worse rating but this site only letsyou go down as far as 1.
Meet the Spartans was just over 60 minutes long and full of excessiveproduct placements. I wouldn't even call them product placement butjust commercials. The following is a brief example; three minutes in tothe movie the main character is starving and finds a Subway foot longsub sandwich. There was no joke made about it other than Subway footlongs are not very tasty. Coke was proud sponsor of the Pit of Deathjoke. Apple Computers was the sponsor of the "Wifely Advice" scenewhich failed to get a laugh. Maybe it was supposed to be funny thatprimitive men had advanced technology like laptops and cell phones?Maybe once but not over and over and over. Other proud sponsors wasUPS, Red Bull, Dentyne, Gator-aid, Budweiser, T-Mobile, Gray GooseVodka and The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. Yes all those in just 60 minutesnot much room for humor.The jokes are in extremely poor taste, from child abuse, racism,homophobic slurs, overtly large male testicles, blurred shots ofwomen's gentiles, and over done celebrity gags. The length of any givenjoke could last a long time. For example the "Pit of Death" joke ran afull 5 minutes long or 8% of this entire movie. There is a Paris Hiltonjoke about mid point in the 60 minute commercial that lasted too longand was later revisited again later for more pumping of an already drywell. Another gag that lasted 6 minutes or more, 10% of this film, wasthe break dance and yo momma routine and was an insult to the AfricanAmerican race. Promptly followed by a beer commercial.The actors like Carmen Electra is really getting too old at 36 to playas a sex symbol to us teens anymore. Unless you're into dating yourmother. To me she looks like an average soccer mom. If you want to seeCarmen Electra nude look at an old Playboy magazine she is not nude inthis movie and I rented the unrated DVD. Sean Maguire seemed to be inpain more than anything else. His acting ability suffers greatly andhis ability to deliver the bad homophobic jokes even more so. I wasactually sad to see TV star Kevin Sorbo from "Andromeda" and "Hercules"having to suffer through this movie. Not that he had much of a careerbut he has lost any hope in acting since this disaster.As I mentioned I rented this movie for $2 at the local video store andwhen I took it back and told them how awful the movie was they refundedme my money. I hadn't spoken but about two sentences when the managertold me they couldn't in all honesty say it was a good movie to rent.They hope to rid themselves of the few copies they have in the storebut since they are a franchise chain they must carry what they aretold. I know just where this movie belongs at the very bottom. Itshould be #1 on the "IMDB Bottom 100 Movies". So vote and let's putthis were it surely belongs!
once apon a time warp in the 80s, the best spoofs were made, naked gun,spaceballs, airplane, i miss the good ol'days. now spoofs are aboutrandom references and stealing jokes (chastity belt = robin hood men intights). this film don't have a plot! its just Dip$#!ts running aroundsaying "its --- from ---"! not to mention too much advertising. CarmenElectra (whos always sexy) wasn't sexy in this one! Ken Davitian, why?your the guy from Borat have some dignity! good thing Tony Cox (theblack midget) wasn't in this one(i thought he would play a midgetVenom). if Mel Brooks made this film it would be 10 times better. theZucker brothers can make this funnier
This movie isn't funny at all.I think this movie was made for littlekids.I cant believe it scored a PG-13 rating it should have been a rrating in my opinion.It was disgusting - I really really wanted to giveit a 0 star rating but it isn't possible so a 1 star rating is verygenerous in my opinion.Comedy is still one of my favorite genres and Iwill still continue to watch comedy movies.I cant believe i wasted 90or so minutes watching this movie it was torture! From now on if i wantto watch a movie I will read reviews and if it gets enough good reviewsthen i will watch it.If you think the commercials were funny (i did) then you will see whereIm coming from and agree it is not funny once you watch thismovie.Don't watch this movie if nothing else is on.0 stars out of 10.It is the worst movie of all time
This was possibly one of the worst movies I have ever seen. That is noexaggeration. This movie is absolute SH*T. I watched it for free twodays ago, and I'm still p*ssed about the fact that I payed for theelectricity I wasted to power my television. I felt like RIPPING MYF*CKING EYES OUTI HAVE HAD TEETH PULLED THAT WERE MORE ENJOYABLE THAN THISTHERE HAVE BEEN GENOCIDES FUNNIER THAN THISOH GOD THE HUMANITYWhy in the good lord's name would anyone seek to produce a cinemarepresentation of horse sh*t is far beyond my knowledge. This movie isthe definition of cr*p. Actually, I just took a dump an hour ago, and it was funnier than thismovie.I would rather use the DVD to slice my d*ck off than watch thisatrocious monstrosity of a film.
I sat in awe watching every minute of this, this, this...thing. Mymouth was in a perpetual 'waaaah' (what the hell) throughout. I can'tbelieve that this even made it out of the studio, through editing andcursed every screen it was played on. This beat Rambo? Mine eyes!Please make it go away, make it all go away! The incessant homosexual actions, comments and connotations were justcompletely revolting and unbelievable, those who produced this horriblemonster must all be extreme deviant homosexuals - hardcore. Oh and Iguess Kevin Sorbo was desperately seeking career suicide, to even beassociated with this disgusting excuse for a movie.There is nothing funny or entertaining about this movie. If you have anIQ of 50 or below and/or are a deviant homosexual, perhaps you couldsomehow stomach this monstrosity.If you liked 300 don't see this. If you hated 300 don't see this. Notonly is this not child-safe of any age, it isn't fit for any adult eyeseither, unless you are a deranged psychopath. If I could give it a -100I so surely would.
This was easily the worst movie I have ever seen. Since Cloverfield wasclosed, I decided to go to this instead, knowing it would be dreadful.What followed was an awful experience. The jokes are aimed forten-year-old kids who will laugh at anything. The plot was a patheticrip-off of 300. Epic Movie was a phenomenon compared to this. Thewriters of these god-awful parodies are losing ideas. Sure, the ScaryMovie series was okay, but after the third one, the writers beganfilling the void of good acting and funny slapstick comedy with obviousreferences to celebrities and TV shows. This all only leads me tobelieve that Meet the Spartans was not meant to be any good. The idiotswho wrote it probably figured that an audience of immature kids wouldlove it. Hey, every film writer screws up occasionally. What aboutGeorge Lucas and Howard the Duck? The main problem is that these parodymovies are vile, 90-minute crap-o-ramas that resort to language anddirty jokes to deliver a strained laugh. I didn't laugh. I left halfwaythrough the movie.
Jason Friedberg & Aaron Seltzer. Never have i despised 2 individualssuch as the discontent i have for both these unimaginative, humourlessso called creative minds. How they continue to make movies is beyondme. They have just completed a hat trick with Meet The Spartans, thatis, created 3 of the worst movies ever seen in a row. It's anincredible feat. Despite having a free ticket and being begged toattend with a friend (i have closed and terminated that friendship as aresult), i still felt ripped off. Actually scrap that, i feltphysically abused after viewing this. Stripped of any dignity.And despite this, we still see users on IMDb that actually give thisrating more than 1 star (I'd happily hack the website and change thecode to allow a zero rating if i could). I'm not sure as to what themindset is of a person that could find this utter drivel humorous.Perhaps they find the idea of referencing a movie without actuallymaking it any funnier, or on occasions, actually changing the script asa comedic tool. If that fails, let's use gay jokes. If that fails, letsreference again and this time tell the audience what it is we arereferencing just in case they didn't laugh the first time. I mean thelack of humour is quite staggering, it actually made me cringe. I thinkheard more laughs in the cinema whilst watching Requiem For A Dream.I mean to call this movie a spoof is a complete and utter insult to thelikes of Airplane! and Spaceballs. In fact, its an insult to thecountry of America that such a movie could be released. The fact thatit made something like $18 million in its opening week perhaps give usan insight as to why America is the focus of terrorism. Perhaps thesesources of terror were exposed to the films of Jason Friedberg & AaronSeltzer.
Please do yourself a favor and dont get this movie. one of the worst movies I've ever seen in my life save your money.
This movie was not only a waste of money, it was horribly short and noteven remotely funny.I saw this this afternoon with two kids who were absolutely amped tosee it, and by halfway through the movie (these are 12 year olds we'retalking about) they were bored out of their minds.The rip-offs of Paris hilton, Britney spears, American idol, America'snext top model, dancing with the stars, happy feet, the apprentice, yougot served, spiderman 3, stomp the yard, 300 (duh), shrek, lindsaylohan, amongst the other so called "stars" wasn't even remotely funny.I'll give you a hint: don't waste your time with this movie.
This movie is terrible, no doubt about it.I watched this movie with some friends, and even though we usuallylaugh of the most immature things when we hang out, we thought most ofthis movie sucked a lot. I have never liked spoof movies, but they canbe fairly funny when you are together with the guys and being plainstupid. This however, is worse than the others I have seen (exceptdate-movie), mostly because they have a tendency to overdo most of thejokes.Then why did I give it three stars instead of one? You would think a 18years old boy (me) was more mature, but I thought the gay-jokes werefunny. When Leonidas marches to war with his warriors to Gloria Gaynors'I Will Survive' I actually laughed wholeheartedly. I also liked thepart when Leonidas was flirting with his general's son.It doesn't save the movie, not by a long shot, and I wouldn't recommendthis movie to anybody. But hey, compared to date-movie I did laughduring the film, so I couldn't give it only one star :)
Words fail me. How to describe this travesty of a movie? The best that can be said about it is that it actually may not be the worst movie ever made. It's close, I'm sure. Truly deserving of no stars. I guess on the bright side, at least it's not "The Comebacks."
I went to go see this with a few friends just to distract me from theamount of stress I have had this week. It was either this movie orJumper, and my friends and I decided what the heck lets just go and seethis.What a mistake. I should have been at home doing homework. It would ofbeen far more exciting.It was dreadful. If you have seen the trailer, that basically sums upall the whole movie (if you want to call it that) in 30 seconds. Thejokes where lame and repeated over and over, it was fake and the actingwas pathetic. IT WAS THE WORST MOVIE I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY ENTIRELIFE. It's as though someone off the street with no imaginationwhatsoever said to themselves "Hey! what the heck I'll make a crappyrip off of 300!" My movie ticket said it went for at least an hour andhalf, but it went for about half of that. I sat in the cinema waitingfor the bloody thing to get to the point, but it never did. It had nostory whatsoever and the jokes where, well, non-existent.I want to walk out of the cinema with a good feeling and "money wellspent" attitude, but this movie made me go up to the counter and askfor my money back. I felt like crying...I wasted 11 dollars and and anhour of my life on this..."movie."I didn't even want to rate this....it doesn't deserve even the thoughtof a rating. Do not see this movie even if you liked scary movie and epic movie. Itmade me sick, and your sure to be disappointed too.
This review is from: Meet the Spartans (Unrated 'Pit of Death' Edition) (DVD) Meet the Spartans is a laugh out loud hilarious parody to last year's movie 300, with the addition of parodies to several other blockbuster movies, TV shows, and commercials!The movie itself is nothing short of hilarious, it accurately pinpoints all of the things that people didn't like about the movie 300, (including historical inaccuracy, ridiculous outfits, and over-the-top combat sequences) and spoofs them in the most accurate & funny ways imaginable! The writer of Meet the Spartans obviously did his homework, because every joke hits it's mark and never leaves you scratching your head about what just happened.The only people I can think of who wouldn't be able to appreciate Meet the Spartans, are the hardcore fans of the 300 movie, or the kind of people who hated other spoofs such as The Naked Gun & Hot Shots.If you hated movies like The Naked Gun, Hot Shots, Space Balls, & Robin Hood: Men in Tights, then you probably wont like Meet the Spartans either.If I were just rating the movie itself, I'd give it 4 out of 5 Stars right here and now, but unfortunately I'm reviewing the DVD too, so no such luck...My issue with the DVD rests within the version I bought, the Pit-of-Death Unrated Version.The Unrated Version contain some highly pointless and immature scenes that really hurt my experience while watching Meet the Spartans.Had I have watched it at the age of 14, I would've found it hilarious, but now that I'm an adult man, ball jokes just don't hit their mark with me anymore...And for those scenes which contained such stupid, childish, and immature content, I'm going to have to give the Pit-of-Death Unrated Edition of Meet the Spartans 3 out of 5 Stars, which I feel I'm being quite generous with, considering that said scenes were so pointless & stupid that I felt like giving it 2 Stars.When are Hollywood & major film distributors going to realize that the addition of crude, pointless, and immature scenes is going to appeal only to younger audiences, and ruin the experience for the older and fully matured viewers?The movie was better in it's original PG-13 version, the added scenes only served to water down the experience of the movie itself, and make the older and more mature viewers feel stupid for watching it.Steer clear of this version and buy the original Theatrical Version instead, it's actually more entertaining and funny in it's original form, this version is just dumb.
This review is from: Meet the Spartans (Unrated 'Pit of Death' Edition) (DVD) The jokes are topical, the poking-fun at home-erotic epic films is on the money [I'm gay, all of my friends who've also seen it roared], full of eye-candy, and if you love dishing some of the current celebrities, you'll love it. Only a few themes seem to be a bit over-repeated, but I'm still very glad I bouught it.
After spending Â£7 to view this utter crap it would appear i spent moreon my cinema ticket than the film company did on actually making thefilm. When writing a review i usually include both good and bad aspectsof the film however their are no good aspects to this film. The jokeswere predictable and in bad taste. The acting was poor to say the leastand overall it was simply a dreadful film. I struggled to understandwho would actually like this film, no one who possesses an IQ couldpossibly have found it entertaining. I feel sorry for anyone else thathad to watch this and warn anyone who is planning to.The only goodthing about the film was the ending...because then it was over.
This movie was such a tremendous waste of time. I actually fell asleepwatching this crap. Most people wont mind watching a good spoof moviebut this definitely was not a good one. It was an insult to themasterful work done with 300 as a matter of fact and the writers shouldbe ashamed of themselves. Was this written by backup writers fromkindergarten while the real writers were on strike or something? Irecommend that you don't waste your time, money or effort watching thisnonsense as my little sister could write a way better script than thisheap of garbage and i do mean heap. The jokes were corny and childishand the movie was just supremely boring.
