Epic Movie (2007) (part 6 of 11)
Peter comes out of his daydream, convinced he’d make a lousy hero. The beaverbot reminds them that this is their destiny, and they weren’t brought together by chance. “Look at the clues, they’re all around you!” Don’t wait for a Usual Suspects-type reveal of all sorts of story elements hidden around Tumnus’ apartment. It’s not coming. Instead, Lucy notices a picture of the Last Supper. A close-up shows all four of the orphans are in the painting, standing right behind Jesus. This is a neat trick, because in the long shot, it’s just the regular painting—Jesus is alone at the vanishing point, just like everybody learned in whichever college class they mentioned that in.
Meanwhile, Kal Penn has slipped off, probably in search of another Superman Returns reference.
Lucy asks what it means, and one of the Apostles in the painting comes to life and answers that they’re all related—brothers and sisters. He adds an exasperated, “For Christ’s sake!” This causes Jesus to roll his eyes. According to my research, the talking Apostle is Judas, and please don’t ask me why I bothered to look that up.
