Summary:

DISASTER MOVIE tells the story of a group of young adults who encounter nearly every known disaster and catastrophic event all in one night, while spoofing recent popular movies. Filled with foul language, disgusting dialogue and an unfunny plot, this movie is truly a disaster.

Review:

DISASTER MOVIE tells the story of Will, who needs to make it across town to rescue his girlfriend Amy who is trapped in the Natural History Museum and along the way encounters multiple natural disasters all in one night, while spoofing recent popular movies. Along the way they encounter the Princess from ENCHANTED, Juno from the movie JUNO and a Bernie Mac type character. In the end, they return a crystal skull (a la the latest Indiana Jones movie) to its proper place to end the disasters.

DISASTER MOVIE is actually a group of comedy sketches strung together that satirize popular culture. This could have worked well had the sketches been funny. However, only a few moments merit a smile and there are no real opportunities to laugh. The story is terrible and the pacing worse.

The movie is devoid of special effects and has a very low budget feel to the production. Also, many of the actors seem to be cast for their resemblance to celebrities rather than their acting abilities. On the positive side, Nicole Parker as the Enchanted Princess is mildly entertaining.

Along the way, HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL, SPEED RACER, KUNG FU PANDA, THE INCREDIBLE HULK, IRON MAN, and other movies are lampooned, as well as celebrities like Amy Winehouse, Dr. Phil, Miley Cyrus, and Michael Jackson.

DISASTER MOVIE contains plenty of foul language and frequent sexual references, often with homosexual references. There are a number of songs that typically contain lewd lyrics. A character portraying Jessica Simpson starts to sing a song and tries to get the crowd to like it, saying it’s a song about Jesus and “we’re all for Jesus.” The level of violence, though a bit cartoon in nature, still sometimes has much blood. The scene of “Alvin” and his chipmunk brothers gnawing on the exposed vertebra of “Juno” is truly disgusting.

DISASTER MOVIE is poorly made and unfunny. It truly is a disaster. Instead of this, there are many very funny, uplifting movies you can discover in MOVIEGUIDE®’s Internet Archive at www.movieguide.org.
