- The twisted minds of two of the six writers of "Scary Movie" tackle the biggest mega-blockbusters of all time in "Epic Movie." The story centers on four not-so-young orphans: one raised by a curator at the Louvre (where an albino assassin lurks), another a refugee from Mexican "libre" wrestling, the third a recent victim of snakes on her plane, and the fourth a "normal" resident of a mutant "X"-community. The hapless quartet visits a chocolate factory, where they stumble into an enchanted wardrobe that transports them to the land of Gnarnia (with a "G"). There they meet a flamboyant pirate captain and earnest students of wizardry - and join forces with, among others, a wise-but-horny lion to defeat the evil White Bitch of Gnarnia.

- Critics' reviews
"If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, big studio Hollywood hitmakers should consider themselves lauded to the max in 'Epic Movie', the latest (and epically unfunny) entry in the movie parody franchise"
Ronnie Scheib: Variety
"'Epic Movie' is a waste of time (...) It's not so much painful as it is sleep inducing"
James Berardinelli: ReelViews
"If it gets little else right, at least Epic Movie is accurately titled: It may be only 86 minutes long, but it feels as if it lasts forever."
Elizabeth Weitzman: New York Daily News
"It's an ersatz comedy filled with unconvincing celebrity look-alikes and tone-deaf parodies"
Nathan Rabin: AV Club
