Known Trivia

  • Many of the films spoofed in this film had not been released when the script was written.
  • In the movie, the world will end on August 29, 2008, which was the date the movie was released.
  • In the unrated version, the uncensored parody of “I’m F**king Matt Damon” uses the word “f**k” a total of 51 times.
  • Occupied the #1 spot on the IMDb Bottom 100 for almost four months, from shortly after its August 2008 release until December, when it was dethroned by Sweetie Pie (2000), an obscure thriller starring Paris Hilton. The film returned to #1 on the Bottom 100 when Sweetie Pie disappeared from the Database.
  • Film critic Louis Fehrey was furious after he saw the film, claiming that it insulted his intelligence, the intelligence of the American people, and the intelligence of cinema. As “revenge”, Fehrey spent weeks collecting every single American review of the film. He then published an article in USA Today, stating that 98.7% of “Disaster Movie” reviews were negative.

Goofs: Revealing mistakes: The "naked" Incredible Hulk is clearly wearing green-colored underwear.

Synopsis

Synopsis: The movie opens with spoofing "Armageddon" and "10,000 B.C."In the year 10,001 B.C., a caveman Will (Matt Lanter) runs away from a mammoth before getting in a fight with Wolf (Ike Barinholtz). He then encounters a saber-toothed, gasoline-drinking Amy Winehouse (Nicole Parker), who informs him that the world will end on August 29, 2008 (which was the film’s opening day and Michael Jackson’s 50th birthday), revealing their fate laying in a crystal skull "Indiana Jones". The film flash-forwards to the present, where Will apparently dreamed all of this. He then finds out that his girlfriend, Amy (Vanessa Minnillo), is having an affair with Flavor Flav (Abe Spigner) and the two break up with Will not admitting his true feelings for her.

Later that day, Will has a "Sweet Sixteen" party at his house, despite the fact that he’s 25. Among the guests are Juney (Crista Flanagan) spoof of "Juno" and Will’s best friend Calvin (Gary "G-Thang" Johnson), who attempts to curve a bullet around the room "Wanted" to stop Seth and McLover "Superbad" (Noah Harpster and Austin Scott) from stealing the alcohol, accidentally killing "Dr. Phil" (John Di Domenico), Anton Chigurh (Barinholtz), and the Beautiful Assassin (Carmen Electra) in the process. By then, Amy arrives with her new boyfriend, an underwear model (Nick Steele), before the "High School Musical" number is performed with cameos by an off-key Jessica Simpson (Parker) and Justin Timberlake (Jonas Neal).

However, the party comes to a halt when the lights go out as the room shakes and a bulletin on the radio claims that it is the end of the world. Will, Juney, Calvin and his girlfriend Lisa (Kim Kardashian) go outside during a meteor shower and find that "Hannah Montana" (Flanagan) has been crushed by a meteor and, even when caught between life and death, is still promoting her merchandise until her wig falls off, revealing her as Miley Cyrus before she finally dies. While this occurred, a kid (Ty Wesley) wakes up "Hancock" (Walter Harris) and mouths at him to go save the world, only to be knocked away as Hancock tries to flee the city but hits his head on a streetlight and knocks himself out. Soon after, the city starts to freeze over, and the group retreats to a garage for shelter. They meet the "Sex and the City" girls, who claim to have first grabs and Juney beats a drag queen version of Carrie Bradshaw (Jason Boegh) for the garage "Don’t Mess With The Zohan". After discussing global warming, Calvin says that he is cold and suggests they take their clothes off. Only the girls take their clothes off, and the guys stare in awe until Juney’s water broke.

Later, Will has a dream where he is a "Jumper" and accidentally impales himself on Prince Caspian’s (Barinholtz) sword (Caspian identifies him as "the guy who ruined Star Wars"; also a reference to Matt Lanter’s voice role as Anakin Skywalker in the 2008 CGI Clone Wars television series). After Will’s dream ended and he was chided for not even trying to commit to his relationship, the gang leaves the garage and Will gets a call from Amy, admitting his feelings for her before he decides to get to her as Lisa gets killed by a meteor. While the others comfort a distraught Calvin, the "Enchanted" Princess climbs out of a manhole and gets hit by a taxi, with Calvin catching her as they immediately fall in love with each other. Juney guesses she’s a princess thrown out of her kingdom by an evil witch, the Princess explains that she’s a "demented homeless chick who lives in the sewers" due to consuming "lots and lots and lots of mind-altering, enchanting drugs!" After getting into a dance off with the Princess’s Princely pimp dancing to Sizzle C’s ‘I Like Them Girls’, the heroes flee when a tornado appears with "Iron Man" (Gerrard Fachinni), "Hellboy" (Barinholtz), and the "Incredible Hulk" (Roland Kickinger) attempting to fight the natural disaster and being knocked down by its projectile cows. When they find shelter, Calvin gets a call on his shoe phone from Lisa’s mother, who is informed about Lisa’s death and how Calvin has found someone hotter than Lisa. Afterward, they encounter a group of cute singing chipmunks "Alvin and the Chipmunks" who suddenly turn rabid, attacking the gang and eating Juney’s flesh until she presumably dies. The chipmunks go after the others until Calvin and Will trap them in a trash can, suffocating them as they attempt to break free.

On their way to the museum to save Amy, who called to tell Will she’s trapped under a statue, they run into "The Dark Night" (Barinholtz), who informs them that they must go to the evacuation buses by 9 p.m., and also mentions that there will be no chance of survival if they go to save Amy. Learning that it’s closer to nine than he thought, Batman throws a rope, which accidentally lands on a car that drags him away. With time against them, the Princess kills "Speed Racer" (Jared Eddo) so they can hijack his car with Michael Jackson (Christopher Johnson) in the trunk along with Chim-Chim and Spritle, and drive to the museum. When they get there, they save Amy who reveals the Crystal Skull from Will’s dream to be the only thing that can stop the end of the world. As Will and Amy make their way to the altar, Calvin and the Princess find that the museum doors are closed and all the artifacts have come alive "Night at the Museum", including "Kung Fu Panda" (Yoshio Iizuka), who fights Calvin. When Calvin makes out with the Princess after beating him, he sees that she is actually a transvestite by removing "his" wig while the Panda takes out a katana and kills them.

Meanwhile, Will and Amy run into "Beowulf" (Barinholtz), who fights Will in the nude. After Beowulf is defeated, Will and Amy meet Will’s father (Tony Cox) and Will returns the Crystal Skull to its altar, averting further destruction. The film ends with a wedding ceremony for Will and Amy being performed by "The Love Guru" Shitka (John Di Domenico). Then all the characters come sing a song about dating each other which sets of a chain "Disaster Movie F**k Song" ending with the chipmunks being crushed by yet another cow.

    *Disclaimer: I only watched this movie as a conditional agreement. AndI see films for free. I wouldn't be caught dead giving my hard earnedmoney to these idiots.

    Well, to explain the depth of this 'film', I could write my shortestreview, ever. Don't see this movie. It is by far the stupidest, lamest,most lazy, and unbelievably UNFUNNY movie I have ever seen. It is atotal disaster. But since my hatred for this movie, and the others likeit, extends far beyond one viewing, I think I'll go on for a bit.

    I don't know any of the people in the movie besides Carmen Electra,Vanessa Minnillo, and Kim Kardashian, but it doesn't matter. They'reall horrible, though I think that was the point. The editing is flatout horrible, and possibly blatant continuity errors make this crapfasteven crappier than I thought it would be. Now I know that these filmsare not supposed to be serious at all, but come on, it's film-making101 that if someone gets a minor facial cut, it should be there in thenext shot. AND, if someone gets cut by a sword, there should be bloodand at least a cut (though since the Narnia films "get away with it",I'll give Disaster Movie a pass here).

    The 'jokes' are thoughtless and mindless physical gags that obviouslytake after some of the most popular movies of the last year (there'ssome from late 2007 as well, including 2 of our 5 Best Picturenominees).

    You know what the saddest thing about these stupid movies are? I don'tcare how much money they make, or how many cameos they have, thesesorry ass excuses for films are taking away jobs from actors, writers,and directors that truly deserve the attention. Lionsgate, I thoughtyou had better taste than this. You should be ashamed of yourselves formaking this kind of crap. And as for Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer?Burn in hell. You guys are contributing to the decline of westerncivilization. Correction…you are the CAUSE of the downfall of westerncivilization.

    I am writing this in hopes that this gets put over the previous reviewof this "film". How anyone can find this slop entertaining iscompletely beyond me. First of all a spoof film entitled "DisasterMovie", should indeed be a spoof on disaster films. Now I have seen 1(yes count them, 1) disaster film being spoofed, that being "Twister".How does Juno, Iron Man, Batman, The Hulk, Alvin and the Chipmunks, AmyWinehouse, or Hancock register as Disaster films? Selzterwater andFailburg once again have shown that they lack any sort of writing skilland humor. Having unfortunately been tortured with Date Movie and EpicMovie I know exactly what to expect from these two…no plot, no jokesjust bad references and cheaply remade scenes from other films. Someoneshould have informed them that satire is more than just copy and pastefrom one film to another, though I shouldn't say that because some ofthese actually just seem to be taken from trailers.

    There is nothing clever or witty or remotely smart about the way thesetwo write, and I can't believe that some people still pay to see thesetravesties. It's an insult to the audience, though if they enjoy thesefilms I doubt that they are smart enough to realize that.

    Rating: Unfortunately there is not a number low enough (yes thisincludes negatives) to rate this. This deserves to be in the top 5worst films of all time, right there with Date Movie, Epic Faliure…Imean movie, and Meet the Spartans. I would rather be forced into a 24hour "Manos: The Hands of Fate" marathon than watch this slop.

    Just one question: Why are they still making these movies?…Anyone?Seriously, why do they insist on making more of this garbage? Does thisstudio not have any dignity? They could have stopped a long time agoand said: "Okay, we screwed up, lets not make any more of thesehorrendous movies…Nope! Let's make more!". These movies are completegarbage. Date Movie, Epic Movie, Meet the Spartans, Superhero Movie,and now Disaster Movie. All of these movies are so bad, that when youfinish watching them you are thinking: "Wow, I cannot believe that Ihave just wasted an hour and a half of my life on this garbage". In allseriousness, a monkey could have put this together, actually, I think amonkey did make these movies. Because they are just completely stupid,have absolutely no point, and are not in any way funny. I feel bad forwriters that have good screenplays and have been turned down in orderto make these movies. They could make anything, literally anything, andit will be better than this.

    By the way, let's ask ourselves what genre does this fall under? Theyare not funny, so they can't be comedies. They have no point, so thatrules out calling them good movies. What are they? GARBAGE. Completeand total garbage. If there ever was such a thing as film pollution,these movies would perfectly define it. A complete waste of time andfilm. I want to know how they make these and expect people to like themand find them funny. There is absolutely no reasonable explanation formaking these movies. They are an insult to film-making. It really isdepressing to think that they have no other movies that can be madeinstead of these.

    Really, I could write a scathing review of this turd sandwich, butinstead, I'm just going to be making a few observations and points I'vededuced.

    There's just no point in watching these movies anymore. Does any readerout there remember Scary Movie? Remember how it was original with a fewcomedic elements to it? There was slapstick, some funny lines, it was apretty forgettable comedy, but it was worth the price of admission.Well, That was the last time this premise was funny. STOP MAKING THESEMOVIES. PLEASE.

    I could call for a boycott of these pieces of monkey sh*t, but we allknow there's going to be a line up of pre pubescent annoying littlebuggers, spouting crappy one liners like, "THIS IS SPARTA!" and, "IMRICK JAMES BITCH" so these movies will continue to make some form ofmonetary gain, considering the production value of this movie lookslike it cost about 10 cents to make.

    Don't see this movie. Don't spend any money on it. Go home, rentAirplane, laugh your ass off, and then silently judge the people thatare talking about this movie on Monday. Do yourself a favor.

    Since the name of the movie is "Disaster Movie". The basic irony isthat it's a ****ING DISASTER! A 90 minute **** flick based on popculture and movie trailers. My god, Seltzer, retire and live off themoney you made from your other below 3 star rated pieces of horse ****,please. Now when you do these type of movies, you're never going to getthe "jokes" in 5 years, maybe even 2. They're just wasting their time,not really. They're just wasting our time. But whoever goes and seesthis are brainless (Hypocrite moment) but bare with me, I got in forfree and I regret it.

    A free ticket, and a bad nightmare.

    Do not watch this, support other films that are coming out today whomdeserve it more.

    Come on, do you REALLY want more of these? **** guys, just ****.

    This movie I saw a day early for free and I still feel like I gotripped off. It is totally brain dead. Burping, kicking in the groin andboobs all over the place. Lame. What is wrong with society, that filmslike this even get made? The parodies were all horrendous, andun-funny. The plot was lackluster at best and the acting was shallow,transparent and really quite unnecessary.

    Anyone see "Idiocracy"? Remember the movie that won all the academyawards in the future? Well this is that movie. I have not seen a morerancid crappy film. "Date Movie" was okay, The Scary movies at leasthad decent plots, but this, this makes "spoofs" (if I can be so nice tocall it that) for this year 0 for 3, with "Meet the Spartans" and"Superhero Movie" all falling flat.

    Well I've wasted even more of my life typing about this sack of cowdung. So all in all, don't see this movie, unless of course your IQ isbelow 80.

    Thanks, R

    Honestly, what is wrong with you, Hollywood? Not only is this the WORSTthing that has happened to you —- you keep funding these "cheesywriters of Scary Movie" to make these movies. I mean, come on CarmenElectra, you know even better than them that you have potential! Stopportraying in parody movies!

    See, I can't believe I am comparing "parody" to this movie. This moviehas no "parody" or "comedy" in it, this is all referencing. All theyneed to do is see a movie title, take a line and a scene from atrailer, and turn it into a script. Never in my LIFE have I ever beenso ticked off by you (Hollywood).

    I mean, Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg, you don't even care for themoney, you just want to prove you can be a film-maker too, but that'snot the point! Movies are something you should enjoy, and this… thisis making bland jokes and pointless (as I may say "comedy) with fartjokes and people being hit with objects… or just getting hurt (butyou realize that they are okay)?

    Now please, STOP! You're ruining the name of "parody" and you arecausing people to hate you even more!

    Please, as a warning, DO NOT WATCH THIS.

    I was given a free ticket to this film; so I can't complain that I wasripped off (except in that some 90 minutes of my life wereirretrievably stolen from me). These sort of movies (Date Movie, EpicMovie, Meet the Spartans) haven't been funny for some time now but"Disaster Movie" has reached a new low. There wasn't one real laughanywhere in the film, and most of the alleged "jokes" were actuallypainful. (There was a considerable amount of childish, mean-spiritedstuff in the form of racist, sexist, and especially homophobic, garbagepresent, along with ample helpings of juvenile gross-outs.) None of theactors were even bothering to put up any pretense of acting. There isnothing hip, clever, or even mildly intelligent going on here. Theentire film is from beginning to end crass, vulgar, irrational, andutterly humorless in any human sense. I know that in the past thesesort of trash has made enough money to keep Seltzer et al., grindingthem out but "Disaster Movie" may just be the downfall of thefranchise. The utter contempt that Seltzer and his collaborators havefor their audience is finally beginning to show through clearly. Ifthis one fails (and from what I saw in the almost empty theater thereis a good chance of it), Seltzer will have to go back to the drawingboard, stop making these lazy catastrophes, and finally develop a realsense of humor. This movie is an unfunny piece of puke – stay away fromit.

    If you saw the other previous spoof movies by these two horriblegentlemen, then you should know that this already will be bad. I'lltell you the truth, if you want to watch it as a brainless person(ironically meant for the stereotypical teenagers, which I am not) thenyou will laugh at it a bit. But if you judge it, even a little, themovie automatically fails. Why? Never ask that when it comes to thesetwo men.

    Remember the good old Hollywood days whenever making a movie was aboutshowing people a type of art, and also a story that kept you on theedge of your seat? Well whenever word hit that making films earned youloads of cash, then all these greedy people came in the picture and itsquite pathetic. These two are no exception. We still have movie artists(most notably the genius that is Christopher Nolan). But these two guysjust…well I've been writing so big words, let me put it in simpleterms for these guys…These guys suck, they are not artists, butinstead money craving whores. And their latest movie proves this evenmore so.

    The movie fails so easily its mind blowing. I mean nothing was funny inthe trailer, and people usually put the best stuff in them (like idiotssometimes).

    I knew it was going to be bad, but I made a bet with my "friends" andthat wasn't a good idea at all. I have to write movie reviews in apaper and tell everyone whats good and whats bad, same for my friends.We flipped on who has to review it…Why me? Well I'm warning you atleast. It shouldn't even be called a movie, nothing about it isartistic or original. The jokes..I'm sorry, the references are madethroughout at pretty much random, like the Hannah Montana or the Junogig (they were actually close to spoofing it, but failed by referencinginstead of joking and twisting it).

    Oh and please, the random wrestling scene? I don't know about you otherguys, but I have high respect for women, and I have a high respect forfilm-making. What I do know is you shouldn't have something in a moviethat doesn't add up to the story or anything. Nudity is not reallyneeded (Titanic was the closest exception, but still you would'vegotten the idea if you only saw her bare legs.) Now I hate it when agirl says all guys are the same, perverts and brainless (and if youdisagree with what I said about the nudity in a film, you might be oneof them unless you actually believe it has a point), and sadly thisfilm just makes that stereotype a little bigger. Thats if anyonewatches it, which hahahaha!!! By the way, when I said movies shouldhave scenes and only scenes that add up to the main plot, that was theticket right there to say that this movie fails. Yup, just like that.Perhaps I'm grading too hard for these guys. I mean its a brainlessmovie…Nope, they deserve it. Besides thats the best part aboutreviewing a bad movie, you get to rip it inside out. Thats if you knowhow to grade a movie correctly.

    But lastly (well I've got about 4 scores worth of bad movies I need towrite about, but whatever) the main idea about spoofing was brand newwhen Airplane! came out. Same with Naked Gun. And whenever somethingrandom came into play, the story was still progressing. For example,the arrow in Airplane! shooting out of nowhere: random, yes, but thestory was still movie and no one was distracted except the audience.Perfect. Naked Gun, not only was it spoofing cop films and others, butit also had its own jokes. Same with Airplane! Anyways this movie wasmade for money, not to tell people a story. Simple as that, and neverflip a dang coin to determine something that could be life threatening.

    I give it a 1 out of a 10. Just do yourself a favor and watch goodmovies, or mediocre for that matter.

    OK, so "Disastrous" isn't an imaginative barb for this movie, but thenthere's not a shred of wit to the movie, so….

    I saw this movie for free. A friend who said he "pissed his pants" atthe trailer had free passes. I think he's incontinent.

    A spoof of disaster movies might have been fun. This is not it. Acouple disaster movies get referenced, not really spoofed. Instead, the"spoofing" is of recent movies of all genres, and of aspects of currentpop-culture. Then again, how current is women's wrestling or the "HeadOn" commercials?

    If there's anything about it that's good, there's the 70 minute or sorunning time (where did they get 90 minutes?) and Nicole Parker seemslike she might be good, if she had good material.
