Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer's aptly titled cinematic disaster

I broke out in laughter when I read this news, it appears that the next cinematic disaster from Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer (the two of the six Scary Movie writers that brought us the unwatchable Date Movie, Epic Movie and Meet the Spartans) will be called Disaster Movie. The aptly titled film will supposedly parody There Will Be Blood and the Sex and the City Movie. For some reason I feel as though they have not seen There Will Be Blood and the closest thing they could come up with to humor would be something related to that wildly popular I Drink Your Milkshake scene at the end of the film.

I have actually seen two of their three movies on HBO one late night and they were even worse than their respective trailers. They have the uncanny ability to crack out a few jokes every minute but keep them consistently unfunny, most of the extent of their humor relied on pop culture references that would be far from cutting edge seven years ago and scatological humor where half of the time it seemed as though they threw it into their script at the last minute or just added a couple of sound effects in their post department. While Disaster Movie sounds as terrible as their past movies, it at least sounds marginally better than their upcoming PG-13 rated parody of Superbad. Ack!

I'm sure the humor in the title Disaster Movie goes well over the heads of Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer...
