Title aside, Disaster Movie may be the first Airplane!-style parody that has no overriding concept beyond…skewering a bunch of recent hit films. It should have been called I Love the First Half of 2008. Since many of the targets (Cloverfield, Hancock, Kung Fu Panda) already have a cheeky self-consciousness, the comedy rarely seems more than a hasty patchwork of cheap-shot allusions. But a few arrows hit their marks. The movie is merciless sending up Juno’s self-satisfied hipster gobbledygook, and it’s quite funny to see Hannah Montana still promoting her tie-in products as she lies crushed and dying under a meteor.
