Not So Epic Movie

Since it only took two of the six writers from Scary Movie to create the genre spoof Date Movie, it looks like Fox is looking for parody gold with the same exact same two writers.

Though Date Movie may have been close to par with the Scary franchise, Epic Movie looks like a real miss.

Epic Movie Trailer

The twisted minds of two of the six writers of Scary Movie tackle the biggest mega-blockbusters of all time in Epic Movie. The story centers on four not-so-young orphans: one raised by a curator at the Louvre (where an albino assassin lurks), another a refugee from Mexican "libre" wrestling, the third a recent victim of snakes on her plane, and the fourth a "normal" resident of a mutant "X"-community. The hapless quartet visits a chocolate factory, where they stumble into an enchanted wardrobe that transports them to the land of Gnarnia (with a "G"). There they meet a flamboyant pirate captain and earnest students of wizardry – and join forces with, among others, a wise-but-horny lion to defeat the evil White Bitch of Gnarnia.

Don't get me wrong, I dig the fact that Kal Penn is, uhh, branching out and there is nothing hotter than a cute and also hysterical redhead by the name of Jayma Mays. You know, the same girl who recently had her brain painlessly sliced by Sylar in Heroes. But it hurts me to say that Epic Movie is one of the few spoofs that don't look up to par. Sure, I giggled a few times, but we are going to need a lot more before being convinced that this film was made for a theatrical release.

Check out the first trailer for Epic Movie over at MySpace.

Epic Movie opens to theatres on January 26th.
