THEY'RE CHEAP to MAKE, REQUIRE ALMOST NO ORIGINAL THOUGHT and, for SOME INEXPLICABLE REASON, AUDIENCES FLOCK to SEE 'EM: "SPOOF MOVIES" ARE the LATEST INFESTATION of HOLLYWOOD's NEAR FATAL BOUT with "BEEN-THERE/SEEN-THAT" DISEASE.

AND SUPERHERO MOVIE IS NO BETTER (AND MAYBE NO WORSE) THAN ANY of the 37 OTHER EXAMPLES of THIS INDEFENSIBLY LAZY GENRE. THIS ONE DOES STAR OUR 1996 WORST NEW STAR "WINNER" PAMELA ANDERSON (WHICH GIVES IT SOMETHING of a RAZZIE® PEDIGREE) and IT CO-STARS NAKED GUN ALUMNA LESLIE NIELSEN (WHO HASN'T MADE an ACTUALLY FUNNY MOVIE in at LEAST a DECADE) SO THIS ONE MAY SUPPLANT MEET THE SPARTANS as 2008's LAMEST EXAMPLE of THIS KINDA CRAP.

BUT DON'T TAKE OUR WORD for IT -- CHECK OUT WHAT OUR FORUM MEMBERS HAVE to SAY ABOUT IT...

I'm going to go on record and say this won't be as bad as what Friedberg and his partner in crime Seltzer have been vomiting forth lately...

but I still wouldn't get my hopes up about it actually being funny!

I think this movie will do well for one reason: Drake Bell is in it, and he has a pretty good fan base with young girls and fans of "Drake & Josh."

I also think it will do well, because it's from "the creators of Scary Movie" (well, at least 3 and 4) and does not involve Aaron and Jason (although it might as well).

Apparently Pam Anderson is their new Carmen Electra...?

This has potential to possibly be a diverting film...

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!

Does anybody but me miss the original Airplane and The Naked Gun Movies? Because every time I see one of these half-a$$ wannabees I miss them all that much more!

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

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 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!

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...
