Who the &%#* watches this sh#*&?

Asked by simone54 (7600points) August 24th, 2008

Disaster Movie! I seriously can’t stand even watching the TV spots for it. They make one of these piece of crap movies every year! It is UNBELIEVABLE people get money to make this! I am offended as someone who is a fan of film.

Those movies annoy me too. It all started with Scary Movie (I think) and it’s ridiculous.

Are you okay? Breathe deeply, find your happy place…

I’m not okay. Shit pisses me off.

@ Allie: The first Scary Movie was pretty funny. Anything after that… crap!

Well really it all started with Airplane which was taking the $%^& out of those 70’s disaster movies Airport (insert year here).

Of course the difference was Airplane was good.

Okay the people who makes these movies has to stop, I will send evil spirits to plague them.

Wow. I just watched the trailer.

Erm.

Eh?

I’m not going to waste any brain cells to come up with words to describe how bad it looks.

Also Matin Lawrence movies. Please can we stop him from making stuff. I also wanted say Eddie Murphy movies but then he produces an Oscar worthy performance in Dreamgirls.

for anyone who hasn’t seen the trailer for this movie (i hadn’t until i read this Q), you can watch it here

Nah I like Martin Lawrence. He had to make a few kids movies though. Not his fault that they are bad.

Young teenagers looking for something to do. That’s the only audience I can imagine.

Anyone else had the mispleasure of watching Rest Stop? If not, google the comments on this boner so you don’t waste your time.

19 year old boys who like to see tits, laugh at crude, “potty humor”, who live in group homes and don’t have much of a chance of ever doing much of anything positive with their lives. Oh. Maybe that was too much info.

@PnL: Thanks for providing that link. I hadn’t seen the trailer before.

A lot of those spoof movies tend to be either hit or miss. Unfortunately most of them are miss these days. I’ll probably still eventually see it, but I won’t be rushing out to see it on the big screen.

I just watched that trailer…..im going to curl up in the fetal position and cry in the corner for a couple hours.

Also they stole that cow thing from Earthworm Jim, which actually is funny unlike this “Disaster” they call a movie.

Spoof movies are okay. Airplane, Hot Shots, Naked Gun, etc. But they’ve started making these spoofs of spoof movies, which are glaringly bad. I wonder if it’s a contest to see who can make the worst profitable movie.

Ditto Martin Lawrence.

simone54's avatar

I had the idea of spoofing a spoof. It was a very serious heavy drama.

and yeah. Maybe it’s like The Producers.
