Meet the Spartans

"The Bigger the Hit, The Harder They Fall"

Meet the Spartans is a parody of several very popular films. The film stars Sean Maguire, Kevin Sorbo, Carmen Electra, Ken Davitian, and Travis Vanwinkle. The film is written, produced, and directed by Jason Friedberg, Alvin Selzter. The film premiered back in 2008. The film is packed with plenty of low brow slightly risque humor. Meet the Spartans is definitely not for the younger preteen audience.

This film parodies a group of very popular films and pop icons. Those who are fans of the film "300" should enjoy all the inside jokes about the film captured in this parody film. The movie starts with the lead character called Leonidas. Leonidas is captured in his magnificent innocence as a child. We discover that the small baby Leonidas was born with a six pack, muscles, and facial hair. The young Leonidas is placed in Spartan training and must endure much hardship. For example, he must endure a really cold winter and a vicious penguin attack in nothing more than a loin cloth and cape. He survives and returns home. He spies the lovely Carmen Electra performing a seductive dance and asks her to marry him. She gives him the key to her chastity belt.

King Leonidas faces the Persians in a strange game of Break Dancing, followed by Yo Mama jokes. A gang of pop culture icons and spoofs fill the movie with hilarity. There are a number of spoofs concerning celebrities with their lookalike. They range from Britney Spears to Paris Hilton. Humorous scenes include muscular Spartans skipping off to fight holding hands and singing "I will survive." Spartan warriors tongue kissing when meeting instead of a simple hand shake. Other spoofs include Grand Theft Auto, American Idol, and Lindsay Lohan. The movie has a hilarious take on American pop culture and pop icons.
