A spoof of 300 (2006) and many other movies, TV series/shows/commercials, video games and celebrities. King Leonidas of Sparta and his army of 12 go to war against Xerxes of Persia to fight to the death for Sparta's freedom.

In the beginning when Julia is dancing over the vent, you can clearly see she is wearing black underwear. Later when she is sprayed with the hose and knocked over, she is wearing flowered underwear. See more »
The 85-minute unrated version is only about 2 minutes longer and there are some changes:
-In the scene spoofing The Bachelor, the dialogue introducing Grant is different.
-The scene with the cat on the toilet is longer.
-There is some extra dialogue after the wizard gets kicked in the crotch.
-Grant's last name is "Fockyerdoder" instead of "Funkyerdoder".
-Julia shows Jack two extra cards.
-When Nicky is thinking about the honeymoon, the dialogue is different.
-The scene where Roz and Linda are talking is much more explicit.
-Andy's introduction is longer and more suggestive. See more »
This won't be a long review, as this movie doesn't warrant much more than a warning not to waste your money on it. I'm not sure how a movie so god-awful can make it to screen, but my faith in the system has been shaken. The film isn't funny, I'm not sure if it tries to be or not, but it's not. It references other movies (Meet the Parents, When Harry met Sally etc.) but doesn't really spoof them. This was the biggest problem I believe, as it doesn't have any semblance of flow or sense. Random scenes pop up, trying to get a laugh by basically reenacting the scene, not exaggerating it or making fun of it. I managed to sit through House of the Dead, but this film actually made me angry it was so unfunny. Please skip it, have one of your friends go see it instead and then ask about it. If they don't knock your teeth out for setting them up to lose money and 90 minutes of their life, then you can go see it yourself.
