    It's very funny and - at times - even witty in a crude, drunken frat-boy-with-an-epiphany kind of way.
  2. The jokes are wild, raunchy, surreal and dead-on.
  3. 70
    Political incorrectness, gross-out humor, references for their own sake, and some real wit are distributed over the 85 minutes with an unusually consistent sense of timing and proportion, and the tone is just right.
  4. If you're amused by jokes involving male genitals, female pubic hair, flatulence and dismemberment, it should be a big hit.
  5. 38
    Usually what you're laughing at is ugliness, and that leaves a foul taste long before the 85 minutes have expired.
  6. 0
    I'd rather have a testicular nail-gun mishap than sit through this migraine-inducing train wreck of a film one more time.

    This is the funniest movie I have ever seen. I can't believe people disagree with that! I hope there is a 5th one.

    I'm a big fan of this Parody series and after watching the first four many times I can easily say this one is my favourite. 3 & 4 put up toughI'm a big fan of this Parody series and after watching the first four many times I can easily say this one is my favourite. 3 & 4 put up tough competition but at the end of the day this is where it all began and where we were introduced to the likes of Cindy & Brenda along with the rest of the gang. It's full of classic parodies and gags with Scream and IKWYDLS being the main ones, but overall it's a very funny parody that anyone can have a really good laugh with, and I highly recommend it!

    Scary Movie (2000) is the first film in the "Scary Movie" parody series that revolves around making fun of what was originally just horrorScary Movie (2000) is the first film in the "Scary Movie" parody series that revolves around making fun of what was originally just horror movies, but eventually by the time of the 3rd part, features other movies that were not horror. Scary Movie is a very memorable film to me, and really showed what a true spoof is. To me, this film is up there with Airplane! and Spaceballs. The film has non stop humor much like Naked Gun, while having characters that you actually care about and have some development. Directed and written by the Wayans brothers, who also act as main characters in the movie, this film received an R rating, as did the second film. However, 3-5 were directed by different people and received the PG-13 rating, giving them less freedom. Scary Movie was actually a box office hit, making a few hundred million dollars. Acting isn't too bad in this film, and you are constantly entertained. As a bonus, the main antagonist, Ghostface, taken from the popular 90's horror franchise Scream, has some very funny scenes where he interacts with other minor characters. All in all, this is a great spoof movie with an actual story, that is entertaining with decent cinematography and puns. Overall, I give thus film a 8/10. Expand

    Scary Movie has caught my guilty pleasure, its crude and raunchy but I admit that I laughed when I didn't want to. The funny as hell spoofsScary Movie has caught my guilty pleasure, its crude and raunchy but I admit that I laughed when I didn't want to. The funny as hell spoofs were eye catching and fun to cam. While the critics don't take the tamest of the series's pleasure, Scary Movie is a average blockbuster. When Anna Faris gave up her role in the worst of the Scary Movies- SC5, I was surpirsed how this excellent actor saved herself. Scary Movie might be a extreme- porn theatre film, it won my funny bone. Expand
