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.
