Written and directed by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, with production by Paul Schiff, Epic Movie is an American parody film released in 2007.
Kal Penn, Adam Campbell, Jayma Mays, Jennifer Coolidge, Faune A. Chambers, Crispin Glover, Tony Cox, and Fred Willard are among those who star in it.
The film is a spoof on the epic film genre, making jokes about such films as The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, Harry Potter, Charlie, and the Chocolate Factory, Pirates of the Caribbean, and X-Men.
The film premiered on January 19, 2007, and was universally trashed by reviewers; many consider it to be one of the worst movies ever made.
Despite this, the film was a financial success, raking in $86.9 million on a $20 million budget. Due in large part to its appearance in Epic Movie, Bubba Sparxxx’s “Ms. New Booty” became a commercial success.
Epic Movie Release Date
With an opening weekend total of $18.6 million, Epic Movie dominated the box office. As of the 8th of May, 2007, the picture has made $86,865,564, with the domestic total at $39,739,367.
The film’s projected $20 million budget was a major factor in its financial success for its creators (the same as Date Movie).
Epic Movie Plot
Silas attacks Lucy’s adoptive father, a museum curator. Before dying, he leaves her clues to a “Golden Ticket” candy bar. Edward, a disillusioned monk trainee, Susan, a displaced adopted girl, and Peter, a mutant mocked for his chicken-like wings, all find Golden Tickets during “comedic” scenarios. Willy’s Chocolate Factory is where they meet. Willy plans to use them as treats.
Lucy hides in a wardrobe from Willy. Mr. Tumnus welcomes Lucy to Gnarnia and warns her of peril on the other side. Edward meets the White Bitch in Gnarnia. She urges him to trap the other orphans so she might become the monarch of Gnarnia.
All four proceed to the Tumnus’ house, where they see a facsimile of The Last Supper and learn that the White Bitch killed their parents. They join Tumnus’ life partner Harry Beaver to battle the White Bitch.
Edward visits White Bitch’s castle. When he refuses to tell her where the others are, she flashes him her breasts to hypnotize him, then imprisons him. Tumnus sacrifices himself to protect the group from the White Bitch’s Silas.
The orphans meet a greying Harry Potter, balding Ron Weasley, and pregnant Hermione Granger at Hogwarts. They train Lucy, Susan, and Peter for the White Bitch fight.
Captain Jack Swallows helps Edward escape, but the Bitch’s old enemy needs Edward’s intelligence.
Lucy, Susan, and Peter head to Also after training. Also helps Edward and kills Silas, but he’s killed by the White Bitch while breaking Edward out.
Susan gets drunk at the orphans’ pre-battle party and vomits everywhere, stinking their army so much that no one helps them the next day. The White Bitch kills the four siblings. Peter uses a magic remote to resuscitate his siblings.
Together, they overcome the White Bitch and halt her goal. Peter promises White Bitch a fair trial in the new Gnarnia, but Jack’s wheel kills her.
Four are crowned kings. Tumnus survives and appears. Decades later, the four senior rulers find the wardrobe again. They return young after leaving. Borat congratulates them, but Jack’s wheel drives over them, killing them. The film ends when Borat says “NOT!” and claps his buttocks.
