I know how you’ve all been waiting on pins and needles for this moment, and praise Allah it’s finally here.  That’s right, the official Disaster Movie plot synopsis!

"In DISASTER MOVIE, the filmmaking team behind the [s]hits "Scary Movie," "Date Movie," "Epic Movie" and "Meet The Spartans" this time puts its unique, inimitable stamp on one of the biggest and most bloated movie genres of all time – the disaster film.

DISASTER MOVIE follows the comic misadventures of a group of ridiculously attractive twenty-somethings during one fateful night as they try to make their way to safety while every known natural disaster and catastrophic event – asteroids, twisters, earthquakes, the works – hits the city and their path as they try to solve a series of mysteries to end the rampant destruction.

Taking aim at everything and everyone, from "Indiana Jones" [Not a disaster movie] and "Iron Man" [Also not a disaster movie] to Amy Winehouse [A disaster, maybe, but clearly not a movie] and High School Musical [Only a disaster if your male child is obsessed with it], DISASTER MOVIE lampoons the blockbuster movie, pop culture icons and public figures along the way as Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer satirize everything as only they can.

If by “satirize” you mean take things that were funny to begin with and make them unfunny and filled with totally unrelated pop culture references, then yes, I’m sure that’s what they’ll do.  Who are these guys?  I’m not sure they’re actual people so much as a biblical plague.  Seriously, I would drink 10 gallons of lamb’s blood if God would smite them.  That’s how it works, right?  I can’t remember, I stopped going to church after one of the snakes bit pa.
