Date Movie back to product details

Things you can do instead of watching this.

I can't add much to Talltale's accurate review of this lazy piece of cinematic excrement, but here are just a few suggestions for things that you can do with your 90 minutes that would be a much better, and less painful (jabbing into your ear canal with a chopstick would fall under that category), use of your time:
- Watch C-Span...without doing anything else at the same time!
- Catch tadpoles and set them free
- Bake enough cookies to feed everyone on your block
- Write a short story based on a childhood incident
- Donate clothing to your local homeless shelter
- Watch a film by Park Chan-Wook and pause it to sketch various shots in a sketchbook
- Take a walk in the park
- Create a film and discussion group for friends and acquaintances and make plans to watch your first film together; (Note: It should not be anything called "Date Movie")

- Dream up about 1,000 other movie ideas that would be far more interesting and less derivative than "Date Movie"

A Shoo-in for Year's Worst (and its only June!)

Apparently made by a bunch of grown men who are still playing with their poopie in the sandbox, DATE MOVIE hits a new low, even for the over-crowded and easily maligned "spoof" genre. Crass is one thing, as the Farrelly brothers have proven often and cleverly, but crass without a hint of humor is something else.

There may be half a dozen genuine laughs here (half of those provided by Jennifer Coolidge's impersonation of the Streisand of "Meet the Fockers"); the rest are of the sort that leave you feeling ready for something the strength of an acid bath to get rid of that scummy feeling. Alyson Hannigan proves quite the trooper here, though I suspect she's set women's causes back a decade or two, while Adam Campbell's aspiration to Hugh Grant-dom needs much superior material to get him there. If nothing else, "Date Movie" should act as a touchstone against which you will be able to easily measure--for years to come--REALLY bad films.
