Superhero Movie (2008)
Critic Consensus: Superhero Movie is not the worst of the spoof genre, but relies on tired gags and lame pop culture references all the same.

Critic Reviews for Superhero Movie
There are a few lively bits, and one joke with an edge: a slap at Stephen Hawking and his computer-drone voice. Mostly, though, this is super-lame.
Essentially a retread of every bad grade-school joke you're happy to have forgotten.
With jokes packed as tightly together as sliced cheese, the flick's comedy axiom seems to be: Never give the audience a pause to second-guess their laughter
It's a bit late in the game for Superhero Movie, which was never going to fly, and barely crawls.
Audience Reviews for Superhero Movie
Less of a disaster than Epic Movie, but still a crappily written slapstick-cavalcade with hardly a single good joke to offer. Anyone who finds this hilarious is obviously a few fries short of a Happy Meal. Anyway, seeing as it ended up being one of the worst movies I've ever seen, my word of advice is to avoid it by any means necessary. That is, unless dopey humor and a total lack of comedic timing happens to be to your liking.
This movie was funny...Scary movie writen all over it. You don't know what you get when you watch a movie that says "From 2 of the 5 writers of Scary Movie"....It could be crap. It could be good...It was good this time. Not good like good...but...funny...
Better than other spoof movies but it has to much of a "been there done that" far to familiar feel to it.
