One of my guilty pleasures is the “Scary Movie” series. Sometimes you just want to watch a movie that is mindless fun to help you relieve your stress from work. The Scary Movie films does it for me. I know that there are a lot of jokes and gags that really fall flat, there are some scenes that still work, and when they work, they really work well.
That’s why I’m anticipating the release of Superhero Movie — another spoof that follows in the tradition of the Scary Movie franchise. Heck, they even have some of the former Scary Movie stars in this installment like Simon Rex, Craig Bierko, and Regina Hall. I’ve been hearing though that this installment has moved away from the Zucker school of movie spoofs by incorporating numerous unrelated gags a la Meet The Spartans or Epic Movie, both of which suck. I hope that this is not true though.
Anyway, we’ll find out in a couple of weeks when the movie is finally shown in theaters.
