Jimmy Kimmel's Star-Studded Movie: The Movie Spoof Is Depressingly Accurate

Late night host Jimmy Kimmel's tradition of filming a post-Oscar movie-related spoof continued Sunday night with a "trailer" for Movie: The Movie, the ultimate star-studded epic to end all epics. In addition to featuring a host of stars, from Taylor Lautner to Helen Mirren to Tyler Perry (er, "Daniel Day-Lewis as Tyler Perry as George Washington"), the Kimmel-produced gag covered just about every genre and trope known to the movies. I give it a few years before some suit turns this into a reality.

Among the stars in Kimmel's ensemble: Ryan Phillippe, Jessica Biel, Ed Norton, Josh Brolin, Antonio Banderas, Tom Hanks, Charlize Theron, Helen Mirren, Tyler Perry, Meryl Streep, Jason Bateman, Matt Damon, and Colin Farrell. Okay, who am I kidding: I'd totally watch a K-9 buddy cop action sports movie starring Farrell as a SWAT officer partnered with a bomb-kicking Air Bud. Go ahead and make that happen, Hollywood.

    That thing was about 8 minutes too long.

    This is what you get when a production team are too afraid to speak up when something is just not funny.

    Nice for the archives should you want to remind stars about that time they were forced to work with kimmel for the sake of his shows popularity.

    Good lord was this bad. Maybe the most unfunny bit I have seen in ten years. Why do these stars even do this? Not only was it awful and unfunny it went on way too long. Do people that found this funny just giggle when they see famous people being silly? I can't figure this one out. Simply dreadful. The opening bit when Billy Crystel gave Kimmel an "Oscar" and it was really Oscar the Grouch could not have been less funny. Meyrl Streep looked embarassed to stand there in a mustache, she at least made it brief and that was it. It really got to the point where you just felt sorry for these poor dopey celebrities. I mean, do they do ANYTHING for a damn paycheck??
