The writing duo of Seltzer and Friedberg can be blamed for a lot of this; the original Scary Movie was successful and they've been riding those coattails ever since.

Date Movie, Epic Movie, Meet The Spartans, and Disaster Movie are all their creations.

I think it's funny that critics tear their hair out and say these people should be shot into the sun every time they come out with a new shit sandwich. That's probably the only funny thing that comes out of their writing.

Oh man this should be a poster. I'd stick it together, but that needs proper none blocky graphics :D I'm not the man for that job.

for me pixels never went out of fashion.



Actually that would be pretty good for Operation Mindfuck. Making posters for fake movies. Success will be determined by the speed and method of the demise of S & F's careers.

I can't decide if I can blame them for finding a way to make easy money. Write crapass movies, sell to the demanding public = cash. Maybe they've got the same philosophy we've seem espoused on the boards here? Take the money and run sound familiar?
I think the blame has to land on the people forking up the cash for these disasters.

Take the money and run, I can roll with. But take the money, then run all the way back to the Studio, make another equally "funny" Movie, to the same formula as "Airplane", then repeat until either Pavlov's Public unlearn how to get led around by the snout, (not anytime soon, I'll wager) with the promise of the same old laughs, the same old jokes, and the same old Actors, or all the electricity gets used up.

They are totally justified in milking a slack-jawed public for every penny they can get away with... and everyone else is justified in pointing out that the celluloid-based milking machines they call "movies" are utterly elephant tripe marinated in a savory shit sauce.

Well yeah, I kinda agree with this too. I'm quite fickle like that. And I'm still waiting for "Freddy got fingered II"
