"Meet the Spartans" (Blu-ray)

movie-meet-the-spartans.jpgSynopsis

In this spoof of 300, King Leonidas (Maguire) of Sparta has an Australian accent and dental braces.

He raises an army that goes out to meet King Xerxes (Davitian) of Persia. King Xerxes, whom Leonidas says looks like the fat guy in Borat, demands that Leonidas bow before him and turn Sparta over to Persia, or he will "shish kebob his ass."

The result: mayhem a la The Naked Gun comedy style.
