Oh Dear God, Make It Stop!

Why? Why do Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer continue to make these movies? They're simply not funny. Worse, they're not even topical! August 29, 2008 (date tentative) brings us yet another of their Blank Movies. This time it's DISASTER MOVIE (could there be a better description?) -- apparently it's a parody of movies that just aren't even being made anymore. AIRPLANE! skewered AIRPORT but it didn't try to also nail EARTHQUAKE, THE POSEIDEN ADVENTURE, THE CASSANDRA CROSSING, et cetera. Without a doubt, DISASTER MOVIE will include "topical" jokes about Paris Hilton, Brittany Spears, and any other celebrity implosions that take place this summer. It'll also try to parody THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW, ARMAGEDDON, DEEP IMPACT, THE HAPPENING, and more. Too much more. And all done poorly.
