The A.V. Club - Nathan Rabin
Undiscriminating comedy fans hungering for the High School High of superhero parodies need look no further.

Variety - Dennis Harvey
Given the abysmal quality of recent spoof pics, it's saying something that Superhero Movie provides a fairly steady stream of midsized laughs -- and even the 40% or so of gags that just lie there aren't actively painful.

Boston Globe - Ty Burr
How can you tell the target age for Superhero Movie is exactly 13 1/2 years? Because most of the jokes are Internet-related.

Los Angeles Times - Unnamed
The very act of writing critically about Superhero Movie inspires something of an existential crisis -- no one likely to turn out for it is reading this review, and anybody reading this review is probably not inclined to see it under any circumstances.

The Hollywood Reporter - Frank Scheck
By-the-numbers screen parody fails to resurrect an increasingly tired genre.
