From the writers of Scary Movie comes this megaspoof of at least a dozen blockbusters that follows four orphans (Kal Penn, Adam Campbell, Faune A. Chambers and Jayma Mays) who visit a magic chocolate factory, where an enchanted wardrobe zaps them back to the land of Gnarnia. Along the way, they encounter an eccentric pirate and a group of student wizards, and must find a way to defeat the White Bitch of Gnarnia.

Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that plenty of teens will want to see this raunchy parody from the folks behind Date Movie. It frequently relies on sexual references and body functions for punchlines (though the old standby of good, clean, bopped-on-the-head slapstick gets a workout, too). Lots of crotch and breast gags; plenty of innuendo and big, cartoon-style violence. Some language (mostly "s--t" and "Goddamn"). While the main movie being spoofed is The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, there aren't any jokes based on the religious allegory underlying C.S. Lewis' plot. References to R-rated films like Snakes on a Plane and Borat may pique young viewers' curiosity to see them.
- Sexual Content
- Breast and crotch gags in profusion. Numerous shots of bikini-clad women, including a takeoff on Mystique from the X-Men movies (a bosomy mutant mainly clad in blue body paint and glued-on scales). She has sex (non-explicitly) with one of the heroes. Other characters shown in bed together (including four at once, male and female). Repeated jokes by fantasy figures (fauns and lion-men) about how their fathers "boinked" animals, resulting in their birth. The Witch enchants a victim by showing him her breasts (her back to us). Numerous double-entendres, suggestive character names, and suggestions of Willy Wonka's perversity.
- Bloodless, cartoon-style violence, with characters dismembered, smashed, pierced with arrows, shot, decapitated, stabbed, eviscerated, and de-tongued, as well as punched and kicked (in the groin, usually), though they rise up again unscathed.
- Many uses of "s--t," "Goddamn" several times (mostly said by a Samuel L. Jackson impersonator in place of "f--k"), and "bitch" a lot.
- Social Behavior
- It's great to see a racially diverse cast of leads, though it's also a joke at the same time (they're all secretly brothers and sisters). Otherwise, not much depth in the characters or storyline at all, though some of the personal-growth lessons from Chronicles of Narnia are present in an incidental way.
- Many specific movies, TV shows, and celebrities are spoofed.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- Repeated jokes about drinking, with bottles of liquor magically replacing the Turkish delight from Chronicles of Narnia. Characters, even the sober and sensible one, get utterly drunk in a pre-battle party.
