Superhero MovieIt ain’t high art and it sure isn’t “brilliant filmmaking,” but the arrival of Craig Mazin’s Superhero Movie is actually a (small) cause for (minimal) celebration. And here’s why: Over the last few years, the word “spoof” has become synonymous with the phrase “wretched non-movie.” One need only pick through titles like Date Movie, Epic Movie, The Comebacks and Meet the Spartans to see that the spoof movie is one good place to hide if you’re very lazy. Just about every movie freak I know was skeptical of Superhero Movie because they’ve been burned too often by this sort of schtick — but I’m pleased to note that Superhero Movie actually represents a (slight) upswing for the oft-maligned sub-genre.

Run, Fat Boy, RunIn David Schwimmer’s directorial debut, Dennis (Simon Pegg) leaves his pregnant fiancee Libby (Thandie Newton) at the altar because of cold feet. Five years later, Dennis discovers that Libby has moved on with a successful American (Hank Azaria). The news makes Dennis realize Libby really is his one true love. To show he has changed and can complete things, he commits to finishing the Nike-River Run in London, a 26-mile marathon. Overweight and with little hope, Simon sets out to prove he is more than a living punch line.

MPAA Rated PG-13 for some rude and sexual humor, nudity, language and smoking.

Like previous Tyler Perry movies, Meet the Browns was not screened for critics — at least not in the U.S. Philip Marchand of the Toronto Star either attended a press screening or a preview not intended for the likes of himself. “Viewers at the screening I attended laughed uproariously” at one of the character’s malapropisms, he writes. “To this hilarity I remained indifferent,” he added, “and [also] to Perry’s manipulation of plot for maximum emotional effect.” Nevertheless, he concludes, “It would take a stony critic, however, to dismiss entirely the movie’s tribute to the virtues of perseverance and generosity.”
