Product Description

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.

One of the best movies of the year. Unlike Scary Movie (or Epic Movie, or Meet the Spartans, etc.) disconnectedly jumping from reference to reference with no real creativity involved, this parody has it's own thing going on more like Spaceballs. This makes it clearly better than the other movies you would associate with this genre. An hilarious film, definitely worth watching. I saw it for free, then went and bought this Blu-ray because this is the type of movie the world needs more of.

I know why it is rated poorly on imdb - the same reason Kung-Pow is, most of the comedy is just written off by people looking at it rather than watching so are not prepared for how cleverly composed this is.

HASH(0x9b3a83d8) out of 5 stars LET'S GO TROJANS March 17 2012
By The Movie Guy - Published on
Format: Blu-ray
The movie is primarily a spoof of "Troy" but tosses in some other film bits for good measure. Will Sasso stars as the blue collar Awesomest Maximus, legendary general of Troy. His wife, Hottessa (Kristanna Loken) is the princess. Her brother is named Orlando instead of Paris (Gary Lundy) who is gay. He absconds with Ellen of Troy (Sophia Monk) in order to make the King of Greece jealous. Ian Ziering plays Testiclees in the manner of Brad Pitt. His incestuous mother looks like Angelina Jolie from "Alexander." I think you get the idea of the satire.

When the movie is not spoofing other movies, the humor is overly sexual. When you divide National Lampoon films into classics and not so classics, this falls below the line. If you enjoyed the film "Your Highness" you might try this one too.

F-bomb, sex, nudity (background strippers mostly, no stars)

HASH(0x9b2dfac8) out of 5 stars GREATEST SPOOF EVER!!!!! Oct. 27 2012
By JOCKIN ON MY NUTZ - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
if you are a lover of parodies and you see this title your probably thinking oh great another spoof about warriors and greece, but awesomest maximus by far rocks the others. it is so original and its produced by national lampoons rather than leslie neilson so you totally get a new feeling to it, also unlike other spoofs this has no advertising no annoying repeating things or stupid lame jokes made by the characters, i watch this movie over and over again. i am very suprised it was not advertised as much as other spoofs are so you have to get lucky to find it. i totally recommend this film for anyone and ignore the ppl that gave it low ratings cuz they dont know a good comedy when they see one. its a BUY you wont regret. YA DAWG!!!!

This movie puts forth the same humor that originally made national lampoon so great in the beginning. I can't even look at the Dvd case without giggling.

HASH(0x9bb2ac30) out of 5 stars Some Funny Stuff for a Change from National Lampoon Sept. 7 2012
By Nick Howes - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Having seen some of the many movies that have National Lampoon above the title, it's refreshing to see one that actually has some funny moments. It's inconsistent in delivery, exceptionally crude (duh!), with language, topless girls (that's a good thing!), and is far from the worst. A parody of modern sword-and-sandal A-movies like Troy, Alexander, 300, and Gladiator, it throws out as many gags as it can. Much better than the similar sword-and-sandals parodies. I was surprised.

HASH(0x9b2dfb10) out of 5 stars Unfunniest Maximus Nov. 3 2014
By Richardson - Published on
Format: Blu-ray
this is a shockingly bad movie... the ONLY thing that kept me watching, wasn't hope it would get to a merely kind of bad level, but the semi regular nudity. This is like a softcore porn flick that has incredibly low production value and an intentionally bad script linking bits of semi nude and beautiful women. Will Sasso is wasted in this mess.... I can't recommend to anybody.... this truly gets my lowest rating.
