We gave it a C-

Hard to believe they’re only now getting around to this: Producers of Scary Movie and Airplane! set their spoof sights on comic-book blockbusters, tapping Drake Bell (Drake & Josh) to star as Rick Riker, a high schooler who gets bitten by a genetically altered dragonfly and becomes, um, Dragonfly. As Rick’s uncle Albert, expect Leslie Nielsen to once again prove himself this genre’s king. (March 28)
