Review

Our Score
There's very little that's epic about this senseless parody, but then there's very little that's funny about it, either. Following on from the Scary Movie franchise and Date Movie, writers-turned-directors Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer continue their hit-and-miss (but mostly miss) approach to comedy, spoofing such recent films as Pirates of the Caribbean, The Chronicles of Narnia and The Da Vinci Code. It's little more than an excuse for actors Kal Penn and Jayma Mays to mug their way through skits involving bestiality, breasts and Willy Wonka break dancing. It's mind-numbingly, tediously unamusing and is so devoid of imagination it even parodies self-mocking films like Snakes on a Plane. Scarily, it topped the box office on its cinema release in the US.

Summary

Four adult orphans, each inspired by a character from a movie, discover the enchanted land of Gnarnia, which has fallen under an evil spell. Joining forces with a pirate, a half-man-half-lion and a guild of would-be wizards, the four heroes try to restore peace to the magical kingdom. Fantasy spoof, starring Kal Penn, Adam Campbell, Jennifer Coolidge and Jayma Mays.
