About the 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. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: The result in Meet the Spartans is less classic Mel Brooks than middling Best Week Ever. – Clark Collis, Entertainment Weekly, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Lazy, lame and painfully unfunny. – Joe Leydon, Variety, Jun 24, 2010

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. – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010

It lost me at the first scene. I painfully kept watching, hoping that it would get better. It didn't. The trailer has the funniest parts, and it's free. Not really, cause I was suckered into buying this piece of crap for $14.99. Now what am I gonna do with it? I wish I didn't have to give it a star... And why can't we get the "real" 300 on Apple TV?


Watch the trailer, every single "funny" moment for free.

Worst movie of all time

I went to see this movie with my friends and went totally prepared for the gross humor and bizarre story line. Yet we still all agreed that if we had our cars, we would have definitely walked out.
