The heroic Leonidas, armed with nothing by leather underwear and a cape, leads a ragtag group of 13 - count 'em, 13! - Spartans to defend their homeland against the invading Persians (whose ranks include Ghost Rider, Rocky Balboa, the Transformers, and a hunchbacked Paris Hilton...no one is safe when the Spartans take on the biggest icons in pop culture).
With "Meet the Spartans," Friedberg and Seltzer bring together what they call "the highly stylized and oh-so-cool" world of the Sparta depicted in "300," with a non-stop assault on our media-blitzed pop culture. They set their parodic sights on other blockbuster films, like "Transformers," "Shrek," "Casino Royale," "Spider-Man" and "Happy Feet"; TV reality shows like "American Idol," "Dancing with the Stars," "America's Next Top Model" and "Deal or No Deal"; the video game "Grand Theft Auto," and celebrities Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, Donald Trump, Dr. Phil, Tom Cruise, J-Lo, and "Brangelina."
In Friedberg and Seltzer's Sparta, men greet men with a kiss and women with a special handshake. Marching off to war, these heroic 13 warriors skip along, singing "I Will Survive." Their Leonidas battles a "happy-footed" penguin; the hunchback sandman who betrays the Spartans turns out to be Paris Hilton; and the set of "Deal or No Deal" magically appears, replete with the models and their suitcases.blog comments powered by Disqus
