Editors Note
Note Continuing in the vein of their wildly successful SCARY MOVIE series, Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer turn their comedic minds to the romantic comedy genre, resulting in DATE MOVIE, yet another rapid fire assault of send-ups of both recent and classic film moments. Utilizing MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING as the framework on which all the other jokes hang, Alyson Hannigan (AMERICAN PIE) is Julia Jones, the obese daughter of a not-so Greek family. Upon meeting Grant Funkyerdoder (Adam Campbell)--a suave British customer at the diner owned by her hummus-obsessed father (Eddie Griffin)--Julia decides to get massive liposuction in an auto garage (in a sequence based on MTV's PIMP MY RIDE) as a means to make herself more attractive to him. But this, as we know, is all merely a setup for a nonstop barrage of gags based on films such as HITCH, MY BEST FRIEND'S WEDDING, MEET THE PARENTS/FOCKERS, SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE, THE WEDDING PLANNER, and more.^A direct descendent of the AIRPLANE and NAKED GUN films, story is secondary in DATE MOVIE---what matters are the gags, and they come fast and furious. If one joke doesn't work for you, there's always another one just around the corner. Friedberg and Seltzer know their audience, and they make the most of their PG-13 rating--crudity abounds, with jokes about bodily functions figuring heavily in the mix. In her first leading role, Hannigan makes an appealing heroine (even transcending the fat suit she wears for for the first quarter of the film), and Fred Willard and Jennifer Coolidge, in an extended riff on Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand's FOCKER roles, add some class to the proceedings.
Entertainment Weekly "[A] comedy that's salty and loud....If you're in that mood, a handful of these jokes will be likely just what you crave." -- Grade: B- 03/03/2006 p.82

Review Date Movie is pretty terrible, not because it's so awful to sit through, but because of how much better it could've been in more competent hands. As it stands, this strained spoof of latter day romantic comedies has a few guffaws, but it mostly belly-flops its way through a scattershot--and scatological--array of fractured date movie episodes...Directed by Aaron Seltzer, from a script he wrote with Scary Movie collaborator Jason Friedberg, Date Movie spews out its rom-com homages so fast and furiously, it's hard to keep track of every film it skewers, though My Best Friend's Wedding, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Meet the Parents and its sequel, Meet the Fockers, are among its chief targets. While the filmmakers occasionally do the original movie moments one better (what's hiding in Grandma's urn in the Parents takeoff is a hoot), they mostly don't do much more than mimic or broaden the comedy of the source films...The production values are uniformly cheesy and, if some never-seen shots glimpsed in a third-act flashback are any indication, a whole lot of stuff was left on the cutting room floor. That would explain the movie's super-short running time, which, padded by a staggeringly slow credit roll, barely clocks in at 80 minutes.

Michael Booth, Denver Post Any movie that tries to parody Kill Bill and Dodgeball in the same scene is OK by me.
