Spoof movies. Can’t get enough of ‘em, hey!? (Well, by the looks of those numbers “Superhero Movie” did on the weekend seems you can. It did pretty lousy, actually). Just as well, there’s another one on the way – and it’s bound to be just as funny as everything else writer/director’s Jason Friedberg & Aaron Seltzer (“Meet the Spartans”, “Epic Movie”) have done up to this point.
Lionsgate’s “Goodie Two Shoes” will – not that a stratagem will come into it much, if at all – tell of a “group of friends who go on a life-changing adventure”. Apparently the main jokial thrust of this one will be ribbing films like “Superbad” (So, you’ll have someone playing a ‘McLovin’-type, someone playing a pudgy smart-ass a’la Jonah Hill, an actor doing Michael Cera’s reserved dork). But, of course, and not unlike every other spoof film of the past couple of years, everything will be fair game.
Will Smith’s forthcoming superhero jaunt “Hancock” is going to be spoofed, the “Sex and the City” movie (they’re looking for a guy – yes! A guy! – to play Carrie!) will too, and Mike Myers’s upcoming “The Love Guru” is even getting a ribbing.
What I don’t understand is, why don’t they at least wait till these films come out before they spoof them!? They’ve obviously worried if they wait too long, the jokes will be dated, but if the spoof’s are completely off-target, it’ll be a waste anyway. Punks.
Aside from the above characters, Friedberg and Seltzer are currently on the lookout for a ‘Jessica Simpson’, a ‘Justin Timberlake’, a ‘Prince’, a ‘Flava Flav’, a ‘Dr Phil’, a ‘Angelina Jolie’, ‘Paris Hilton’, and, of course, a ‘Michael Jackson’.
“Goodie Two Shoes” films in Louisiana April 28 through June 6.
