Let me start off by saying I like parody and spoof films. Loved the Hot Shots films and Scary Movie. Epic Movie is about four orphans who come together by all winning a golden ticket to a chocolate factory. After escaping from Willy the factory owner, they discover a new world called Gnarnia through an antique wardrobe. Yeah you can see where this is all heading.

This is all fine except it just lacks the wit and humour of other films of its type. Rate than being funny, the producers have relied on cheap, demeaning comedy with a lot of sexualised scenes and rap. I’m not opposed to this but it seems to be there because the makers didn’t know what else to do. A poor script can’t hide from a few good scenes.

Just a bit of a disappointment.
