Most of the X Meets Y formulas for the Seltzer and Friedberg are bizarre beyond belief, with the very few threads connecting them being that they were in the public's zeitgeist by the time the film was created. As The Nostalgia Critic eloquently asked: Disaster Movie was their only movie to bomb both critically and financially, and since then, their output has been far more sporadic. Happens quite a bit in these movies, although the male characters absolutely Would Hit a Girl.
The ending of Epic Movie. When it looks like Peter is going to lose, he just randomly finds the magic remote from Click in the grass, which, he of course helpfully tells the audienceis the remote from Click. Lisa in Disaster Movie, though the characters' grief doesn't last for very long.
Don't Explain the Joke: Every single reference will be explained flatly to the audience.
