A spoof of Avatar is inbound, exploding from the anuses that must surely be attached to the necks of the team that brought the world Date Movie, Epic Movie and Vampires Suck. James Cameron’s indulgent off-world epic only came out in 2009 and is thus ripe for satire, much like all of the other targets that have been turned into the movie equivalent of coal by writing/directing duo and universal hate figures Jason Friedberg & Aaron Seltzer during their improbably fruitful careers as cine-dicks.*
The project’s title is The Biggest Movie of All Time 3D and according to Empire it will indeed be shot with glorious stereoscopic effects. For the viewer this means you will pay a little more to be disappointed by the sub-par, scattergun pop culture gags, served with a side of self-loathing.
Of course there’s nothing wrong with finding a market and then squeezing it for all its worth, which is precisely what this film and its production team are doing. But then there’s also nothing wrong with owning a pillow expressly for the purpose of having sex with it. It’s just not a particularly worthwhile activity.
*I know that it shouldn’t be physically possible for these guys to be both arseholes and dicks at the same time, but they somehow manage it.
