Meet the Spartans

Much was made of the gay subtext in last year’s 300. Honestly, though, what was the big deal? Actual Spartan warriors reportedly engaged in tons of sweaty man-love in between bouts of brutally killing stuff—it was the Spartan way. The gay jokes are as numerous as the sun-blotting Persian arrows in this harebrained spoof that features dance-offs, hot-in-the-’90s Carmen Electra, lots of bad topical jokes and an awesome former C-list television star: Kevin Sorbo. The film’s finest moment occurs when Captain (Sorbo) exclaims, “I’m gonna go Hercules on his ass.” Ugh.
