There were enough fun little scenes that kept me laughing that I kept on watching -- like the scene where the Spartans go up against a bunch of street kids in a Yo mama contest, or where the Spartans take a break from fighting by getting some drinks at a Starbucks type shop in the Pass of Thermopylae.
Most of the jokes didn't work, of course.
Meet the Spartans
There were way too many references and "parodies" that were little more than copying or merely mentioning characters and scenes from popular culture with no real context or point of view other than just repetition. Like the scene where Venom and Sandman fought. How was that a parody of Spider-Man 3? All that happened was Venom and Sandman fought.
There was nothing funny about it, although I'm not going to complain about seeing Carmen Electra in a skin-tight Venom suit. Shannon said that Electra looked old and bad, but I told her she was crazy. Then there were dozens upon dozens of characters showing up just to do bad impressions of popular figures, almost all of which were so bad the other characters actually had to say things like, "Shut up, Dane Cook," so you'd know who was being impersonated.
There was one scene where king Xerxes played by that gross fat guy from Borat -- kinda funny brought out a monster to fight the Spartans, and it was actually a guy dressed up like Rocky. They panned the camera down to his trunks, where the name "Rocky" was printed on them in big letters, as though we didn't know that it was supposed to be Rocky.
Thanks, guys who made Meet the Spartans. You really think your jokes are going to go over most people's heads? And now I'll talk about the cast quickly, who didn't do anything all that spectacular or funny like I said about, Carmen Electra was one of the main starsbut they still managed to walk away from this movie with most of their pride intact. The star of the film who later starred on that awful Comedy Central show Krod Mandoon, or whatever it was called.
See, even I have standards! I don't know his name and I certainly don't think he was a great leading man or notable comic talent, but he made me laugh.

Just check out his delivery of this wookie joke and try to tell me you didn't laugh. And then we had Kevin Sorbo, who is always funny and charming, but I'm mostly mentioning him to say that, at age 52, my boy still looks amazing and has a rockin' body.
