Four troubled orphans from four separate movie scenarios who are bound together in a wacky chocolate factory after receiving golden tickets to go on an 'epic adventure.'

There they must seek the help of a randy lion, a hoard of mutants from the x academy, students of witchcraft and wizardry, funky swash-buckling pirates and a mischievous beaver to defeat the evil white bitch!

Did You Know?

Trivia

(At around 19 mins) In the first cut of the film, the woman who warns Lucy not to enter the wardrobe that leads to "Gnarnia" was completely naked. On the basis of that scene, the MPAA gave the film an R rating. However, the filmmakers had anticipated that the nudity might be an issue, and had filmed the scene where the actress was wearing a bikini. When they inserted that scene and the board reviewed the film again, they immediately changed its rating to PG-13. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 6 mins) When Peter is with Mystique, they zoom in on her face to show her yellow eyes. After Peter's second request, her eyes are blue again for the next two zooms. After they show Peter drooling, Mystique's eyes are yellow again. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: This is the story of four orphans brought together by fate. They didn't know it yet, but there was something more greater in store for them, something epic.

Epic Movie is a Disaster of Epic Proportions
26 January 2007 | by Burleigh7See all my reviews

Alright, it wasn't that bad, but it was close. Sure the Scary Movie series as well as Date Movie were stupid and juvenile, but this is dumber than all the rest. There were a few chuckles, but overall it was mostly me groaning. Nearly every joke was tired and lame. They gave away all the "good" jokes in the trailer. Why Fred Willard and Jennifer Coolidge would be in this I have no idea. But Crispin Glover? The oddball actor who was so great in films like Back to the Future, River's Edge What's Eating Gilbert Grape and more? Yeah that's him all right, as Willy Wonka dancing around to crappy songs. So maybe my title was accurate.
