There are just some titles you shouldn’t use for your film, because you are really just inviting everyone to heap abuse on you. Just ask Mel Brooks about the reception his 1991 flop Life Stinks got.
It looks like no one ever gave this advice to Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the two people responsible for the laugh-free comedies Meet The Spartans, Epic Movie and Date Movie. Their latest spoof film appears to set its alleged comedic sites on bloated, end-of-the-world Hollywood blockbusters like The Day After Tomorrow. Surely, naming their film simply Disaster Movie pretty much lets you know what kind of film this will be. It’s a sad state of affairs when the poster, which originated over at Cinematical, will probably be the only thing about the film to elicit a chuckle.
Disaster Movie kicks moviegoers in the groin and expects them to laugh on August 29.
