What it's about:

In a spoof of the movie 300, Leonidas, who has an unusual appreciation for the male physique, must rally together the buffest, hottest men in Sparta to stop the Persians from invading.

What the critics say:

"I'm moving to Europe."
Aaron Hillis , Village Voice

"Is its purported idiocy put to a worthwhile use, or is this just another stale retreat of MADtv?”
Rob Humanick , Slant Magazine

"Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the team behind Meet the Spartans, prove that ridiculing other movies is much easier than making your own."
Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times

"The result in .Meet the Spartans is less classic Mel Brooks than middling Best Week Ever."
Clark Collis , Entertainment Weekly

"Writer-directors Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer basically reprise the tired formula from their earlier efforts, which is to throw in as many pop culture references as possible to cover up the lack of any real wit.
Frank Scheck , Hollywood Reporter
