This wasn't half bad. The "Spider-Man" stuff was done well and the "Batman Begins" scene was kinda funny. The "X-Men" and "Fantastic Four" scenes wasn't really funny. I don't think Pam Anderson deserves a Razzie nod. She has less than a minute of screen time. It would be like that time the Emmy's gave Ellen Burstyn a nod for a role with 15 seconds of screen-time. Bonus: we get a lot of good looks at Sara Paxton.

I would hesitate to call this the ZAZ effort, given there's only one of those three letters actually involved with the film...and even he wasn't responsible for the script or direction.

My review:

Rick Riker goes to a field trip and gets bitten by a dragonfly. This soon gives him some powers as a regular superhero, except to fly. Now, he'll use his powers to stop the villain, The Hour Glass, whom takes lives from people by sucking out their remaining years in their lives.

Can anyone make a good, or a decent, spoof film? It's apparent that some of the most recent ones are horrible (The Comebacks and Meet the Spartans). This one actually is better than those two, but that's not saying much. Imagine "Meet the Spartans." Now replace all of the pop culture jokes with fart jokes, toiler humor, some slapstick comedy, and physical comedy. This is "Superhero Movie."

Is that a good thing? Well, sort of, considering it's not as painful if one joke falls flat, compared to some of the jokes in "Meet the Spartans" and "The Comebacks." But the jokes in here aren't funny either. Now I know people may disagree with me on this but I actually laughed louder from the rare jokes in "Meet the Spartans." However, in "Superhero Movie," I tend to chuckle more. So would you rather laugh, with less jokes or chuckle, with more jokes? I don't know.

Calling "Superhero Movie" a spoof is bad. This is not a good spoof film. However, the problem with this movie is that I would've liked the movie more if this had been another superhero comedy, rather than a spoof. Unlike "Meet the Spartans," the plot is a lot better. The characters are lovable. But the jokes are unnecessary.

In the end, this is one of the better spoof movies, but that's not saying much. Most of the jokes fall flat and the jokes that are funny, only makes you chuckle. I'm just seriously disappointed by the efforts made by the ZAZ team. They could've done better. Should you watch this? No. If you want to, wait for it to come out on DVD and rent it. 5/10

I saw the movie. It was better than average (compared to most of the spoof movies nowadays), but the "parody" of Dr. Stephen Hawking wasn't at all necessary. I was offended at his portrayal, as he was turned into a deviant sex maniac who likes to say the word "sh*t" a lot, whenever confronted with danger. (I should know, I'm a disabled person myself.)

As of Saturday morning, the numbers had dropped into Razzie territory: Superhero is now under 25% approval at RT. Here's a LINK to the Forum page for reviews..

POLICE ACADEMY was kind of an AIRPLANE! wannabe to begin with. Really, I can only think of two films that effectively utilized this comedy style: the aforementioned AIRPLANE! and NAKED GUN. And both of those films spawned inferior sequels.

But even those follow-ups are better than what we're seeing this "genre" reduced to now...

I just looked at the RT rating for this movie: 30%. That's not too terrible, seeing how it was not opened for review The rating is actually pretty close to another movie's, 21, which stands at 32%. And 21 looked as though it was supposed to be a good movie!

Exactly! This brings us back to another familiar theme in Hollywood...find a good idea, then beat it lifeless with as many remakes and knockoffs as possible....three too many Star Wars films, about 6 too many Police Academy movies...Sylvester Stallone's entire career...

I've always thought "Airplane" was one of Leslie Nielsen's funnier Movies...

I really hope this movie doesn't get sh*tted on. Like I mentioned, Seltzer and Friedberg are nowhere near this film (I think), and David Zucker is producing it. Besides, he made the last two Scary Movies entertaining. And then there's a list of semi-funny people in it: Regina Hall, Tracy Morgan, and Leslie Nielson. And nowhere do I see a jab at Britney Spears. It might actually be worth a watch...

I HOPE!
