Movie Review: Meet the Spartans

In the movie 300, a Persian emissary uttered the now classic line, "This is madness!!!" He must have watched Meet the Spartans.

The core of Meet the Spartans is a direct parody of 300, but it's just bad. The movie is especially funny in the first have but degenerates to an unfunny and forced parody-fest of current pop culture fixtures, such as American Idol, America's Next Top Model, Heroes, Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, to mention some.

There are also a lot of slapstick-homophobic-sexist jokes that would make the politically correct folks shudder to death. I'm sure the target audience of teenage boys wouldn't mind. As long as there is Carmen Electra providing gratuitous T&A, them boys will be happy.

Meet the Spartans doesn't pretend to be Oscar material, but it's my first bad movie of the year.


Rating: 1/5
