Like all the other parodies from Friedberg and Seltzer, “Epic Movie” earns its terrible reputation one lame joke at a time. It takes on the big franchises of its era and musters nary a laugh. Future historians might one day see this abomination and wonder if our society was suffering from some sort of cultural dementia. Then they’ll notice that “Epic Movie” actually made money and have their suspicions confirmed.
