Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
From 2 of the 6 writers of Scary Movie comes this tongue-in-cheek parody of the sword-and-sandal epics. The heroic Leonidas, armed with nothing but leather underwear and a cape, leads a ragtag group of 13 Spartans to defend their homeland against the invading Persians (whose ranks include Ghost Rider, Rocky Balboa, the Transformers, and a hunchbacked Paris Hilton). No one is safe when the Spartans take on the biggest icons in pop culture!

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the team behind Meet the Spartans, prove that ridiculing other movies is much easier than making your own.
Rotten: The result in Meet the Spartans is less classic Mel Brooks than middling Best Week Ever.
Rotten: Lazy, lame and painfully unfunny.
Rotten: Writer-directors Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer basically reprise the tired formula from their earlier efforts, which is to throw in as many pop culture references as possible to cover up the lack of any real wit.
WARNING: DO NOT WATCH
Saw it in theaters because for some incredibly odd reason of thinking that it'll be good due to the previews. the best parts of the movie can be summed up in a less than 20 second clip. dont waste your money on this; use it for gas or something.
do not buy this movie its just a bunch of pop culture references stringed together and the jokes arent clever or funny there just refrences if you want a good spoof buy dewy cox or semi-pro. do your self this favor dont make the mistake i did im looking out for you
funny movie but i want the unrated one please.
