Epic Movie is a 2007 American parody film directed and written by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer and produced by Paul Schiff. It was the first film distributed by Regency Enterprises. It was made in a similar style to Date Movie, Friedberg and Seltzer's previous film, but as a spoof of the "Epic" style of films, hence the name. The film mostly references The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the Harry Potter films and Tim Burton's version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The song "Ms. New Booty" by Bubba Sparxxx gained commercial attention for being featured in Epic Movie. Though the film is widely considered to be one of the worst films in cinema history, it grossed $87 million US dollars at the box office, over four times its $20 million budget.

White Bitch: This crystal will finally put an end to the resistance. I will start a series of earthquakes that will collapse all of Gnarnia and grow a new continent where only I and my followers will live. Bink: Yo, Bitch, that's pretty much the plot of Superman Returns. White Bitch: Pretty much, yeah.
White Bitch: (holding crystal) Let's start things off with a bang, shall we? Edward: But you'll kill millions. White Bitch: Billions. Come on. Let me hear you say it. Edward: My family will stop you! White Bitch: WRONG!
