When Rick is fighting with the thug and the gun continues to go off, he hits two street lamps that fall on his mom and dad. When the thug runs away and Rick runs to his father, the street lamp is not on his head, or even in the shot. When he accidentally shoots his mom, the lamp is not on her head. See more »

Oh Rick, I'm dying...

Don't worry, my brother Albert will take you in. Rick, the money, it's all yours now. Sell all shares in a small company called Google, pfft, worthless. Invest heavily in Enron.

The Castilian Spanish edition on DVD/Blu-ray runs 86 minutes. It's not a extended version of the film but actually the theatrical cut with 7 minutes of mixing deleted/extended scenes of the movie during the end credits. It also includes in those 7 minutes the Craig Bierko's scene as Wolverine. See more »
An entertaining fuse between old and new styles of spoof movies.
Watching Superhero Movie feels like you're re-watching one of the Naked Gun movies, only there are "deleted scenes" which unfortunately feature pop culture references and fart jokes. It's a fun movie if you're into the genre but overall falls far too short of being as good as the classics.
The cast is great for the material they're working with, with some exceptions being those who are given too little screen time to show their talents. Musician/actor Drake Bell's comedic timing is impressive, as is that of spoof legend Leslie Nielsen.
The humor, a combination of slapstick, wordplay and sex/toilet humor, is hit and miss, but hits more often than one would think. The spoofs range from clever to cringe-worthy, but the story and resultant gags follow the source material (mostly 2002's Spider-Man) very well, as opposed to the "Hey, look! It's -insert character- from -insert popular movie-!" style other recent spoofs have adopted. The only roadblocks are the childish fart jokes (one of which spans minutes) and dated pop culture references (Tom Cruise? Barry Bonds? Really?).
It's due to all of this that the movie, although flawed, can appeal to fans of any kind of spoof movie, be it twenty years old or two. It's also able to fulfill the expectations of the average moviegoer while giving some clever surprises to those who don't see them coming. Simply put, if you're a fan of any type of comedy, there's bound to be something in this joke-a-second spoof for you.
