    Is this Seltzer and Friedberg?

    Yes, yes it is...

    Would we consider doing Seltzer and Friedberg as a HitW? We could dissect why their brand of movie just doesn't fucking work.

    It makes me sad that Alison Brie has anything to do with this.
    (Unless that isn't her in the Avatar thing, but I think it is. No IMDB though)

    That would mean we'd have to watch them though.

    I really don't think it was her.

    I think a Seltzer/Friedberg HitW would have to be of the original Scary Movie, no?

    Why? That was at somewhat decent. At least compared to what came next.

    That's true. What do you think was their worst? I'd go Disaster Movie.

    So it's not just a clever name...

    Their movies are all generally terrible. Meet the Spartans. Epic Movie. Date Movie. Disaster Movie. Vampires Suck!

    They all apparently think if they reference something in pop culture, it's hilarious. The Half in the Bag guys had a brilliant take on it...

    "Oh look, The Incredible Hulk just stepped on Paris Hilton... And she said "that's hot.""

    That's a bingo! At least as far as RT goes:

    Disaster Movie: 1%, 1.8/10
    Meet the Spartans: 2%, 1.9/10
    Vampires Suck: 4%, 2.2/10
    Epic Movie: 2%, 2.3/10
    Date Movie: 7%, 2.5/10

    They were just the screenwriters on Scary Movie 1 and 3, so I don't think those count.

    I think the last one I saw of theirs was Date Movie, but that was on a CAM bootleg, which means it was when it first came out.

    Is this like one of those Scary Movie type projects? Because if it is I'm not even watching the trailer.

    No. It's actually a documentary about famine. Why else would I say "it will make you sad?"

    Well but if it was... then I'd really... Oh forget it.

    I'm pretty sure that is her.
    The Avatar part, she says "Ok but just the tip"

    I really think you're wrong. I feel like if it was her, there would be at least some buzz about it. When I google "alison brie starving games" I only get 3 results. One of them is an exchange on reddit where someone asks if it's her in the Avatar part and someone else says no.

    I suppose an unfunny joke that makes no sense is right at home in this thread. :(

    I have no idea what's going on right now. But I'm okay with that.

    You know exactly what's going on. Liddy started a thread about a movie, Abs mistakenly identified one of the stars as Alison Brie, and I made a horrid joke about you using reddit as a news source.
