Dustin Putman's Review - Meet the Spartans () - [TheMovieBoy]
Inane comedies can be fun when done well, but bad inane comedies are simply embarrassing. You feel pity for the actors making fools of themselves, and flabbergasted that a studio probably passed on making so many other more worthy projects instead. Go tell the Spartans that you're not interested in any more lame, unfunny spoofs by paying to see any other movie this weekend instead.
Words cannot accurately describe what a depressing experience each new film from spoof-laden writer-directors Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer is.
These two lucky bastards are the absolute dirges of modern cinema, cobbling together laughless visual and technical monstrosities that wouldn't pass muster in an amateur filmmaking school for the mentally disabled. And yet, due to a bored teenybopper youth market that will apparently go see anything rated PG on a Friday night, their projects do well enough financially for Friedberg and Seltzer to again and again receive the money from studio 20th Century Fox to annually recreate their previous year's creative failure.

The end of its release date weekend, you say? The post-credits coda depicts an actor doing a bad impersonation of Sylvester Stallone in " Rambo ," an obvious allusion to another film arriving in theaters on the very same day.
