IMHO, for satire to be really effective, the writers have to have the courage, and capability, of taking on something that deserves to be sliced down a notch or two. The reason that movies like The Comebacks and Epic Movie fail so miserably is that their targets are already, by and large, crap to begin with.

It's a little like trying to create a satirical parody demonstrating the monumental idiocy of George W. Bush. No matter how hard you try to slice the guy down, he is going to do something even stupider than your most vicious satirical slam within 48 hours.

Nine times out of ten, in art as in life, there is no truth to be discovered, only an error to be exposed.--H.L. Menken

I used to love parody and satire movies, but all of them these days are beyond lame, not the least bit unique and they are filled with toilet humor that only a 12 year old boy would appreciate.  I love sports films so thought this movie would be a funny tribute to such films.  Boy was I wrong.  The writing was lame and the acting was terrible.  These people should do society a favor and never act again

I, finally, saw "Dying Young". Wow, what a steaming pile of dog s#@t. It only avoids being Schumacher's worst film because "Batman & Robin" exists. Also, saw "Veronica Guerin", crap, but not as bad as Schumacher's other movies.
