Friedberg and Seltzer Finally Get Around to 'Avatar' Spoof

May 23, 2011


Mushy-skulled parodists Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer have made themselves a two-man factory dealing solely in the manufacture of lazy, slapdash spoof comedy. Together, they've haphazardly assembled references into no less than seven scripts, themselves co-directing five of those, including Meet the Spartans, Disaster Movie, and most recently the half-hearted Twilight parody Vampires Suck--recipient of a dismal 4% rating on RottenTomatoes. They are, clearly, two of our worst humans, and they're showing no signs of improvement, today announcing plans for another reference melange they're calling The Biggest Movie of All Time 3D.

If the title and above poster didn't make it clear, this time their loose focus is on Avatar--James Cameron's 2009 blockbuster that until now had somehow avoided any and all criticism or parody--because, as they note in the official press release, "what could possibly be riper for satire?" Well, if we're defining "ripe" as both hugely popular and not-at-all timely, maybe Gone with the Wind is riper? But, alas, parodying that film would not allow for the big innovation they're planning this time around: 3-D!--"making it the very first spoof movie ever in this format [and] a perfect showcase for our outrageous sight gags, physical comedy and audacious stunts that will make for a hilarious film and uproarious audience experience." So if you thought 3-D was tiresome already, just imagine what it will be like when used as a vehicle for a joke about how big Kim Kardashian's butt is. Or just wait for the trailer.
