EPIC MOVIE (2007) GO! 10PM, M, COM­EDY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Stomp­ing in the foot­steps of the ScaryMovie se­ries, this no-brainer is a par­o­dic cat­a­logue of the movies and themes that have per­me­ated pop­u­lar cul­ture in re­cent times. Har­ryPot­ter, StarWars, X-Men, Nar­nia, hob­bits, pi­rates, oompa loom­pas, Paris Hil­ton … they’re all tied to­gether with a shoe­string plot. Vir­tu­ally noth­ing slips un­der the radar bar good taste and wit, as co-writ­ers Ja­son Fried­berg and Aaron Seltzer suck the helium out of their tar­gets and ex­hale to a ju­ve­nile level of amuse­ment. On the tal­ent front, Kal Penn, Car­men Elec­tra, Crispin Glover and David Car­ra­dine are the most recog­nis­able faces. ★★
