That's obviously not a good reason, but in retrospect, some really bad movies are funny when thought about later.
I've had chuckles about how bad Epic Movie was, but this Maybe it was the fact that half the audience was laughing at these awful jokes, or the fact that this stupid monstrosity was even green lighted, but after this ended I felt drained of my life. No movie has ever made me feel this way.
The jokes all feel like ones that 9 year old boys would find hysterical, where everyone else would just hate them. Other than spoof jokes, every other joke is one involving pain. There were dozens of crotch hits and back breaks.
There are also many gross out, vomit, sneezing, and boil bursting jokes. There was one joke that had me mildly chuckling, but then they killed the joke by over explaining it. It didn't need to be explained, a monkey could understand it.
Repetitiveness was the only word that comes to mind when watching this. King Leonidas knocks a messenger in the hole, then his two men. Okay, not funny, but at least it's over After the credits seem to be over, deleted scenes are shown simply to make the movie more than 70 minutes.
During the deleted scenes, Dane Cook, George W.

Bush, Tom Cruise, and Ellen Degeneres are also knocked in the hole. The joke is done 10 times over. The two extremely untalented writers of this mess want to include every movie possible, and mention every celebrity they can, and include any show they can cram in. There are 3 instances of celebrity panels judging the Spartans in this, and it's not like it was a running joke either.

It was just lack of ideas. Much of the celebrity humor was just the celebrities pointing out their character traits. Reality shows and game shows are also parodied. Seeing as how Spartans is their seventh produced spoof, one wonders what stone is left to be turned by Friedberg and Seltzer.
Spartans is basically one extended gay joke, territory that itself inarguably set itself up for. From their abs to their costumes or lack thereof and even their battle formations, Spartans skewers the ancient Spartans and brands Leonidas as a "war-mongering latent homosexual" an actual lyric in a song used in the film.
But this " is gay" idea was played out by the time had left theaters; the "It's Raining Men" music video parody of that spread online last year did a far better and shorter job of pointing out the obvious than Spartans ever does. It just isn't funny. There are a couple of chuckle-inducing moments, but for the most part Meet the Spartans is painfully boring.
But then that might suggest that the idea of making yet another spoof has merit. Hollywood needs to stop making spoofs. There have been too many of them lately and almost all are terrible.
