For starters, this Leonidas only has 13 warriors rather than Reality shows and game shows are also parodied. Seeing as how Spartans is their seventh produced spoof, one wonders what stone is left to be turned by Friedberg and Seltzer. Spartans is basically one extended gay joke, territory that itself inarguably set itself up for. From their abs to their costumes or lack thereof and even their battle formations, Spartans skewers the ancient Spartans and brands Leonidas as a "war-mongering latent homosexual" an actual lyric in a song used in the film.
But this " is gay" idea was played out by the time had left theaters; the "It's Raining Men" music video parody of that spread online last year did a far better and shorter job of pointing out the obvious than Spartans ever does.
It just isn't funny. There are a couple of chuckle-inducing moments, but for the most part Meet the Spartans is painfully boring.
But then that might suggest that the idea of making yet another spoof has merit. Hollywood needs to stop making spoofs.
