Overview

After spoofing disaster films in Airplane!, police shows in The Naked Gun, and Hollywood horrors in Scary Movie 3 and 4, producer David Zucker sets his satirical sights on the superhero genre with this anarchic comedy lampooning everything from Spider-Man to X-Men and Superman Returns. Shortly after being bitten by a genetically altered dragonfly, high-school outcast Rick Riker Drake Bell begins to experience a startling transformation. Now Rick's skin is as strong as steel, and he possesses the strength of ten men. Determined to use his newfound powers to fight crime, Rick creates a special costume and assumes the identity of The Dragonfly -- a fearless crime fighter dedicated to keeping the streets safe for law-abiding citizens. But every superhero needs a nemesis, and after Lou Landers Christopher McDonald is caught in the middle of an experiment gone horribly awry, he develops the power to leech the life force out of anyone he meets and becomes the villainous Hourglass. Intent on achieving immortality, the Hourglass attempts to gather as much life force as possible as the noble Dragonfly sets out to take down his archenemy and realize his destiny as a true hero. Craig Mazin writes and directs this high-flying spoof featuring Tracy Morgan, Pamela Anderson, Leslie Nielsen, Marion Ross, Jeffrey Tambor, and Regina Hall.

    Its not 2 1/2 Guns

    We love Leslie Nielsen but this movie was kinda blah compared to his normal antics. We plan on keeping it around for when we need a little laugh and don't quite feel like laughing until we cry.

    Now don't get me wrong, I am not saying it's better than ANY of the Scary Movies, but this being the seventh in the 'series' (basically), it's very refreshing to watch following Date Movie and Epic Movie. The only flaws I saw in it were: A) they need to mock more movies. They really stayed at the spiderman base with this, venturing out on rare occasion. B) way too many fart jokes. But seriously, if you do not want to fork up the cash to buy it, I highly recommend it for rent. If you enjoyed any of the Scary Movies 'set', you will enjoy this!
