Disaster Movie

release year: 2008
genre: parody comedy
viewing setting: home DVD, 1/31/09

synopsis: This parody pokes fun at movies and events from 2008, loosely connected by a world-threatening disaster.

impressions: Silly and stupid, in alternating doses. A small core group of actors and actresses each play multiple roles, and fun is poked at dozens of celebrities, movies, current events, etc. It was entertaining in a dumb way.

something this movie has that no other movie has: three carnivorous chipmunks who work as a team to take down (and eat) their prey

acting: As mentioned, multiple people play multiple roles (which I didn't even realize in some cases.) Given the comical/parody nature of 99% of these roles, it's hard to rate the actual acting.

final word: Intentionally dumb, but entertaining.
