I try to give Friedberg and Seltzer the benefit of the doubt. I'm a sucker for a good spoof movie and these guys HAVE put out some good ones in the past. I got enjoyment from the first four Scary Movies. Yes, even 4 had its moments. By this point though it's obvious that the duo of filmmakers are just beating a dead horse. They played their hand and have nothing left to show - Superfast! is just another nail in their already-laid-out coffin.
Against my better judgement I've seen almost every spoof these guys have done. If you know anything about the directors then you should know what you're getting yourself into with this movie. I had no expectations, and the movie still managed to disappoint. It's certainly not the worst movie they've done - it's a step up from the utter sh*tpile known as The Starving Games and certainly more watchable than Disaster Movie, Vampires Suck, and Meet the Spartans. The problem is that this movie had potential. It really did. Superfast! acts as a spoof not only of the Fast & Furious franchise but of action movie clichés in general. The jokes that can come from that are endless, and the beginning of the movie gave a few chuckles and showed a hint of promise. But as the movie goes on it becomes more and more clear that these spoofers think toilet jokes and cheap gross-out gags are funnier than genuine satire.
I'll give credit where credit is due: The casting in this movie was good. Especially the Vin Diesel caricature and the cartel kingpin. It looked like the actors were having fun and doing the best they could do with the material they had. It's unfortunate that their talents were wasted here because they definitely have a sense of good comedic timing and decent acting chops in general.
That's about as far as the positives go. The awkward "humor" is just cringeworthy and uncomfortable. The toilet humor got old decades ago. A good amount of these jokes wouldn't go by well in an Elementary School let alone on the big screen. Superfast! is filled to the brim with moments that leave you thinking, who in the hell thought that was funny? Who thought making this film would be a good idea? And most importantly, why are these talentless hacks still making movies?
