I don't know why people think it's a comedy or an homage to B movies. The directing and subject seem way too close to Shyamalan's usual directing and subjects to openly be a joke (or the man is joking about his entire filmography). The "What? Nooooo" is bad but I think it's just bad acting (which isn't that much far from what would have been proper acting). I rather enjoyed the movie for what it was. In find comfort in the fact that Roger Ebert took it seriously too.
