Date Movie is a 2006 spoof of romantic comedies directed and written by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, two of the writers of the first Scary Movie.

 Date Movie Movie Review at Hollywood Video
Date Movie is pretty terrible, not because it's so awful to sit through, but because of how much better it could've been in more competent hands.
Even for a movie as broad as this, the filmmakers push too hard, which results in too many drawn-out, embarrassingly unfunny skits (an interminable send-up of When Harry Met Sally's deli/orgasm scene is particularly dreadful).
And, as if there weren't enough movies within their chosen genre to lampoon, the guys throw in references to The Lord of the Rings, Kill Bill, and Dodgeball, slapping an even thicker coat of desperation onto the proceedings.

 Date Movie Review :: Hollywood.com
Date Movie is as crude, tasteless and cheap as a movie the Farrelly brothers might’ve made during adolescence.
Date Movie doesn’t have a story as much as it does a series of miss-or-really-miss spoofs of date movies and cultural hodgepodge; the thin “story” is just enough to keep the film from being a series of vignettes.
Date Movie's trailer brags, “From two of the six writers of Scary Movie...” After seeing it you can’t help but muse, “It took two writers for that movie?!” The writers in question are Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, who also co-directed.

Date Movie isn't quite as successful in keeping the gags at the same pace they came in the Scary Movies, but it will certainly satisfy those with a taste for tasteless humor.
Throughout the movie, Julie runs into obstacles that hinder her marriage to the bachelor (yeah, she won the contest, after of course, the bachelor got rid of the other contestants by blowing them away with a shotgun).

 Date Movie (2006): Reviews
In Date Movie, the hormones, anxiety, and princess jealousy that fuel the majority of Hollywood love stories are made so excessive that the romance itself is revealed to be...every bit as big a crock as it usually is.
Date Movie has enough laughs to make rambunctious dudes hoot and holler, but not nearly enough to ensure the happy ending it promises.

Her limited success in movies is based on what happened in "American Pie," where she had the funniest two lines, the second of which ("Same my name..."), was an ad-lib.
I compare "Date Movie" to "Airplane!", the film that remains the standard by all such kitchen sink comedies need to be judged, and the obvious difference is that with "Airplane!" just knowing the genre is enough to get all of the jokes in the movie.
As we all know, the movie was made by two of the six writers of the "Scary Movie" movies, Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, and the nicest thing to say would be that the other four writers can proudly point to NOT having worked on "Date Movie" when they cover their resumes in job interviews.

 Movie Review - Date Movie - www.ericdsnider.com - The Official Website of Eric D. Snider
This would-be spoof of romantic comedies, written and directed by two of the "Scary Movie" writers (Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer), falls prey to the misconception -- common in modern American humor -- that to make reference to something is the same thing as parodying it.
In fact, I counted 20 films directly referenced or spoofed in "Date Movie," and eight of them have nothing to do with the genre allegedly being mocked.
Alyson Hannigan is a joy to watch in anything, and the opening scene, in which she exuberantly dances around Manhattan in her latex fatsuit to the strains of "My Milkshake," may not be terribly funny, but it is energetic and oddly endearing.

 Date Movie Review - FilmFocus.Co.UK
A quick visit to a date doctor named Hitch, followed by an Extreme Pimping and she's good to go for her meeting with eligible bachelor Grant Funkyerdoder.
Would that it maintain its hilarity throughout - although the funniest scenes stretched over an entire movie might cause incidences of death through laughing - for the film struggles mightily and is so unrelenting in its humour that, by the time you're done laughing at one joke another punch-line has been missed.
Julia Jones - apparently an amalgam of Julia Roberts and Bridget Jones - is, for all the juvenile toilet humour, actually a flawlessly-written twist on the rom-com heroine and Hannigan truly sinks her teeth into the role.

 Date Movie (2006) - Starring Alyson Hannigan, Adam Campbell, Fred Willard, Jennifer Coolidge, Eddie Griffin
Friedberg and Seltzer also have fun with some of the genre’s sillier conventions, like the “slow-motion entrance.” Says Seltzer: “There are all those movies that have a scene in which a woman emerges from a pool in slow motion, and no one ever makes reference to the strangeness of that reduced speed.
So, in DATE MOVIE, we have our character wield a jack hammer, eat bananas and jump on a trampoline — everything that would be great to see a gorgeous woman do in slow motion.
Of all the movies and television shows roasted by DATE MOVE, only “The Bachelor” can claim to have its own host in on the joke.

 Date Movie - Review - Moviefone
First off, NONE of the humor was original simply because the writers had taken the original jokes from the other movies and turned it into some gross gag joke.
All of the hopeful "laughs" in this movie just made me (and the others watching it with me) say "EW!" I'm not even kidding, there was not one hint of amusment or laughter coming from any of us.
Sorry, but this movie is not even worth enough to go down into the Hall of Movie Shame.

 Date Movie Movie Review
From two of the six writers of “Scary Movie” to nine out of 10 moviegoers left disappointed, “Date Movie” was much hyped as a “laugh out loud until you cry” side-splitter.
In this spoof of romantic comedies, “Date Movie” presents us with Julia Jones, the down on her luck protagonist who has grown to massive proportions due to a loveless era of her life.
Along the way, she meets a cast of look-alike characters that avid movie watchers would recognize from recent romantic comedies: Hitch, Napoleon Dynamite, The Wedding Planner, Meet the Fockers, etc…Herein lies the problem.
