In tradition of the Scary Movie
franchise, Superhero the Movie takes the "Mickey" out of the current
influx of Super Hero movies, especially Spider-man. The story
revolves around Ricky Riker (Drake Bell), a teenager who eventually
becomes a superhero after being bitten by a dragonfly.
Of course, it's up to Ricky to save the
world, get the girl and get laid in this classic spoof movie. The
humour of Superhero the Movie is quite crude at times and without
spoiling what are some of the genuinely funny parts of the film, I
can say that the first half of this film was entertaining and
actually funny but it started to lose me when the running gag, not
very funny the first ten times, continued to plague my senses and
the hero’s life.
Definitely one for those who enjoyed
Meet the Spartans or the Scary Movie franchise and if that's not
enough, you might want to check the alternative ending and deleted
scenes for a few extra laughs.
