Reviewer's grade: D
Now that Al Gore is a member of the Hollywood community in good standing, he ought to quit talking about global warming and pound the bully pulpit about a real problem: the fact that talentless yuckmeisters " emphasis on the "yuck" " Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer are allowed to keep making movie parodies. These bozos are to film comedy what Freddy Krueger is to a good night's sleep. Their main target this time is the gay undercurrent in the surprise hit of 2007, "300."
Brit boy Sean Maguire does a mean impression of "300" star Gerard Butler, which is just what world cinema has been panting for, but the rest of the name cast " Kevin Sorbo, Carmen Electra, Diedrich Bader and Ken Davitian ("Borat") " are just there to collect a paycheck and a couple of drinks from the open bar at the premiere party before sliding down the razor blade of oblivion. Handel's opera about Xerxes contains more laughs. PG-13
