“Disaster Movie” follows the comic misadventures of a group of ridiculously attractive twenty-somethings during one fateful night as they try to make their way to safety while every known natural disaster and catastrophic event – asteroids, twisters, earthquakes, the works – hits the city and their path as they try to solve a series of mysteries to end the rampant destruction.
Taking aim at everything and everyone, from “Indiana Jones” and “Iron Man” to Amy Winehouse and “High School Musical,” “Disaster Movie” lampoons the blockbuster movie, pop culture icons and public figures along the way as Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer satirize everything as only they can.
This movie is a “disaster” as far as it being anything close to a family movie. It is filled with sexual innuendos, disrespectful attitudes, a lot of alcohol abuse and strong language which is included in some of the songs featured in the film.
It parodies such films as “The Incredible Hulk” and “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”. However, “The Incredible Hulk” just missed receiving our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal and “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” did receive our Dove Seal. But “Disaster Movie” is hedonistic in its approach and a very poor example to young adults.
There is a lot of violence in the film and although some of it is in a slapstick style, it nevertheless fills much of the screen time. Let’s hope there won’t be another “disaster” movie like this one again!
