Meet the Spartans

Bloody fucking hell....was this ever a stupidly bad film! Even though I usually enjoy this nonsensical offerings I had been told by enough people this was a genuine dud, of course I had to check it out for myself and sadly the masses were right. You just have to feel for the EASTENDERS Sean Maguire. The man has vast talents but you'd never know it from this one and Kevin Sorbo....he'll never be an A-lister but shit damn he deserves better than this. I suppose we can all give thanks for films like this as they keep Carmen Electra in whatever it is she needs and prevents her from doing bad porn. Hell, even SHE is bad in this clunker. There are some laughs to be had, notably the "pit-of-death" sequences but you sadly have to wait til the end credits to see Ellen DeGeneres get booted in! She is portrayed by the lovely Nicole Parker who also does a mean Paris Hilton, Paula Abdul and a killer Britney Spears impersonation in this one. Sadly, Paris does NOT get the big boot into the "pit-of-death" here. I've heard Parker may be touring with WICKEd as Elphaba which would be a real treat for those fortunate to catch it. It should also be noted Ken Davitian, who shot to big time fame because of BORAT (etc. etc......) has a few good moments here. amazing how funny the acting world can be, Davitian has been kicking the can since 1977 and it is only now people recognise him.
I've already spent more time writing about MEET THE SPARTANS than you should watching it but I have to say the GRAND THEFT AUTO spoof was friggin' gut bustingly funny.

Well, I didn't think I would see this one anyways.

A good comedy with some strong appealing emotion as well? "Zac and Miri Make a Porno."
