Julia Jones is unhappy. She’s overweight, spends forever working at her fathers diner, and believes she will always be lonely. This is until she meets Grant Fockyerdoder. Before they can have their dream wedding, they must meet each others parents and survive the scheming Andy. Date Movie was created by the two of the six writers of Scary Movie (Jason Friedburg and Aaron Seltzer) and it’s quite hard to believe they took part in writing Scary Movie because this wasn’t really funny at all. The story is seriously lame, it just didn’t work at all, it was like having your teeth being pulled out one-by-one. The acting was absolutely horrible except for Alyson Hannigan, which isn’t saying much because she was the only one who could actually act.
The characters are made to be dumb and stupid just for cheap laughs but failed. The ‘jokes’ and the ‘funny’ scenes were absolutely awful (maybe except for one or two scenes) and actually made you feel embarrassed for the actors who had to endure this heap of trash. The worst thing about the movie is the writing, how can anyone write something so bad? I didn’t think it was possible!
I wonder if the two of the six ‘writers’ of Scary Movie actually took part in Scary Movie because that was a heck of a lot funnier than this. Believe it or not, this is actually their best movie out of the four they’ve done on their own. This would probably be entertaining for 10 year olds but for those who are older, you’ll probably won’t like it.
