Meet the Spartans



Reviewer's grade: D


Now that Al Gore is a member of the Hollywood community in good standing, he ought to quit talking about global warming and pound the bully pulpit about a real problem: the fact that talentless yuckmeisters "? emphasis on the "yuck" "? Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer are allowed to keep making movie parodies. These bozos are to film comedy what Freddy Krueger is to a good night's sleep. Their main target this time is the gay undercurrent in the surprise hit of 2007, "300."


Brit boy Sean Maguire does a mean impression of "300" star Gerard Butler, which is just what world cinema has been panting for, but the rest of the name cast "? Kevin Sorbo, Carmen Electra, Diedrich Bader and Ken Davitian ("Borat") "? are just there to collect a paycheck and a couple of drinks from the open bar at the premiere party before sliding down the razor blade of oblivion. Handel's opera about Xerxes contains more laughs. PG-13
