History has never been so... hysterical! Prepare to fight for honor, fight for glory, and fight back tears of laughter watching this gut-busting spoof comedy that skewers pop culture's biggest icons. In Meet the Spartans... more », the heroic Leonidas, armed with nothing but leather underwear and a cape, leads a ragtag group of 13 - count'em, 13! - warriors to defend their homeland against the invading Persians, whose ranks include Ghost Rider, Rocky Balboa, the Transformers, and a hunchbacked Paris Hilton. You won't find a funnier Greek war film even if you live to see 300!« less
You could buy it... but I'm sure you can find a cheaper COAS

All that needs to be said. Complete trash. I'm not sure at what point, pop-culture references became funny just by themselves. I guy dressed up like Sanjaya from American Idol pops out of nowhere and they kick him into a pit. Then the 3 person American Idol panel. Britney Spears and K-fed.
There's no setup. There's no nothing. If this is what has come of hollywood spoof comedies... I'm done... and now that we've seen a long string of these comedic failures pour out into the theatres and people actually pay for them... legitimizing them... we'll probably see more. It's a sad day in Hollywood.
Thousands of scripts are written every year that should be funded and produced before trash like this. When a supposed comedy does nothing but make this viewer angry... it's awful.
Everyone should be offended that cheap, brainless, here's a pop-culture reference and here's another type movies are being produced like MEET THE SPARTANS. We deserve better from people who are making millions hand over fist and can only come up with DATE MOVIE, EPIC MOVIE, LITTLE MAN, WHITE CHICKS and MEET THE SPARTANS."
Possibly The Worst Movie Ever

"This movie just sucks. In one word - horrible! Not even remotely funny. It is sad when a director feels that he has to explain each joke. Do NOT waste your time!"
Absolutely the Best Spoof movie I have ever seen!

"Obviously some of these reviewers have no sense of hummer! I have watched this movie five times or more and each time I am in pain from convulsing laughter! People - get a sense of hummer! This movie is GRATE! Can wait for the sequel or pre prequel or whatever! "
Jokes were hit and miss

"MTS started out great. Some of the jokes had me literally LOL, which rarely happens with movies anymore. At other times, the jokes lingered far too long. The pit of death (american idol), top model, and deal or no deal sequences seem out of place (even for a parody) and last far too long. In fact, any of the modern-day inclusions only hurt the movie. The movie was strongest when the jokes were centered around 300. I cracked up when Leonidas was sparring with his son. I guess my biggest complaint was the ongoing gay joke. That might have worked 20 years ago. It's not a complaint from a tolerance perspective, it's just that we've seen it done before... too many times. I also didn't care for the wife (the actress or the character which was nothing like the one in 300)."
Pit of Death?

"I'll have to admit, watching this movie the first time, there were some quick laughs, and it caught my attention. Sometimes, I feel the jokes were drawn out way too long, and that's a shame. If I were a 14 or 15 year old, I'd probably give this all 5 stars. This definitely isn't a movie in which you can watch over and over again. When you're bored, or strung out from the job, or the weekly grind is just too much and you want to let loose for a brief moment, go ahead. Otherwise, this movie is dime a dozen, in the ranks of The Comebacks, Epic Movie, etc etc etc."
