National Lampoon's The Legend of Awesomest Maximus Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: From the director of Revenge of the Nerds comes this outrageous sword and sandals spoof that's got more laughs than Gladiator, hotter bods than Troy, and an army of 301! Horny King Looney of Troy (Rip Torn, Men in Black) sends slacker general Awesomest Maximus (Will Sasso, The Three Stooges) to maintain peace with rival King Erotic of Greece. But when Prince Orlando, who's more into fashion than fighting, steals the King's wife Ellen (Sophie Monk, Date Movie) to be his BFF, it's war! Will Awesomest live up to his godly destiny? Can he defeat the mighty warrior Testiclees (Ian Ziering, Beverly Hills 90210)? Can he light a fire under his gold-digging wife Hotessa (Kristanna Loken, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines)? Join the ultimate toga party for this savagely funny farce that takes comedy to the Maximus.

Review: This movie is the latest in the long line of campy National Lampoon comedies.  Honestly, I want to love them, I grew up on National Lampoon, but often they fall short these days.  This one actually does have some great moments and laughs.    The inclusion of Kristanna Loken is rather funny, since I still just see her as the female terminator.  Will Sasso does have great delivery and timing and has his appeal.  This one is worth the watch.

Interest Range: Comedy
