Meet the Spartans (2008) – Movie Review

Meet the Spartans is another parody made by the same people who has made other parodies such as Epic Movie and Scary Movie. And we all know how those movies suck. Even RottenTomatoes.com has given Meet the Spartans a score of merely 3%.

SPOILER WARNING: Plot and/or ending details follow.

This movie basically spoofed many things from Britney Spears to Paris Hilton, from American Idol judges (Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson) to American Idol contestant, Sanjay, not forgetting Ugly Betty, American’s Next Top Models (Tyra Banks, Twiggy, Ms. Jay), Ryan Seacrest, Donald Trump, Ellen De Generes, Rocky Balboa/Rambo, Spider-man 3, Transformers, Lindsay Lohan, Tom Cruise, Dane Cook, George W. Bush, Kevin Federline, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Dancing With The Stars, Deal or No Deal, Heroes, Ghost Rider, Casino Royale, Storm the Yard, You Got Served, Happy Feet and Shrek the Third. Even Brands like Subway, Gatorade, For Dummies, Dentyne Ice, etc. were not spared. Most of all, Chris Crocker – “Leave Britney Alone” YouTube video clip was used as Xerestron’s (transformed Xerxes) divine power.

Do you think it’s worth watching? And no, it’s not worth watching just because of Carmen Elektra. If you really insist to watch this movie, don’t forget to stay back after the credits as there are some scenes after that.

My ratings: 2 out of 10. Awfully disgusting. Most of the jokes only make sense if you have watched all the movies and TV series mentioned above, not forgetting the stars.
