Meet the Spartans () - IMDb
The result in Meet the Spartans is less classic Mel Brooks than middling Best Week Ever. bad actually, beats his 'Eastenders' shit and he does look the part amazingly! I remember probably one laugh in what i'd call the worst parody film ever. Only five percent of the movie is an actual parody, the other ninety five. This time, the laugh's on Spartan soldiers as the likes of Kevin Sorbo and Carmen Meet the Spartans mixes with films like Stomp the Yard and also features its share of Great Movies That Were Ruined By One Scene. One wonders if studios aren't already developing spoofs of their forthcoming Meet the Spartans tells the same story as , so much so that it dances moments, but for the most part Meet the Spartans is painfully boring.
When she asks to be made a Spartan soldier, Leonidas rejects her as unqualified due to her inability to use a spear correctly. Leonidas and his platoon soon face off with Xerxes' messenger and his Immortals, beating them in a dance contest before driving them off a cliff.
Xerxes Ken Davitianimpressed, personally approaches Leonidas and attempts to bribe him with a trip to the Palms Hotel and Casino. Leonidas declines, and the Spartans face the Persian army in a " Yo Momma " fight, which the Spartans win, but Dilio has his eyes scratched out and wanders away.
Hilton decides to betray the Spartans and reveals the location of the goat path to Xerxes in return for various gifts and for having her deformed hump removed. Xerxes meets the twelve remaining Spartans and the war begins.
Meanwhile, back in Sparta, Queen Margo has several confrontations with Traitoro, as he is the vital vote in sending more troops to assist her husband. Following her address to the Council, Traitoro publicly betrays the Queen.
The Queen then battles Traitoro in a parody of Spider-Man 3 and defeats him using a dust buster. With Traitoro's deceit exposed, the council is united with the queen.
At the Battle of Thermopylaethe Persians introduce their secret weapons, Ghost Rider and Rocky Balboawho kills Sonio with a decapitating uppercut.
When Leonidas is going to be killed by a talking penguin, it says, "Say hi to Anna Nicole Smith for me. References to TV were thrown around, usually making no sense and totally pointless.
Ugly Betty is the oracle. The movies were also thrown about all over so people in the audience could say, "Duh, I know what they're referencing. It made no sense why it was thrown in here. That's how I felt about pretty much every part of this movie though.
Now, back to myself. When the movie ended after just over an hour, I had a headache, and wondered how dumb some people truly are, because nobody of any intelligence could've thought this was hilarious. But of course this is my opinion, and warning, don't see this movie!

It will cause depression. Possibly worst movie I've ever seen. PG for language, sexual and crude humor. Was this review helpful? Sign in to vote.

It just isn't funny. There are a couple of chuckle-inducing moments, but for the most part Meet the Spartans is painfully boring.
But then that might suggest that the idea of making yet another spoof has merit. Hollywood needs to stop making spoofs.
There have been too many of them lately and almost all are terrible. Inane comedies can be fun when done well, but bad inane comedies are simply embarrassing.
You feel pity for the actors making fools of themselves, and flabbergasted that a studio probably passed on making so many other more worthy projects instead.
