Epic Movie

After parodying horror flicks in Scary Movie (2000) and chick flicks in Date Movie (2006), screenwriters Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg turn their attention to Hollywood blockbusters, weakly spoofing The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Da Vinci Code, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and various franchises (the Harry Potter films, X-Men, Pirates of the Caribbean). The cinematic equivalent of a tapeworm, this delivers few laughs beyond the initial chuckles of recognition. Seltzer and Friedberg (who also directed) have another script in development called Raunchy Movie; one idea they may not have considered is “Watchable Movie.” With Kal Penn, Jennifer Coolidge, Crispin Glover, and Fred Willard. PG-13, 86 min.
