Critic Reviews

  1. Most of it is incredibly, gleefully crude and tasteless, but it is also good-natured and harmless, and there's a pretty good chance you'll find yourself laughing.
  2. It's a lot more tightly focused than the first outing, and for fans of the demented comedy of Elliott and Cross, or the thespian chops of Woods (a last-minute replacement for an ailing Marlon Brando), it's worth putting up with humor that's the filmic equivalent of a big, spit-soaked raspberry.
  3. 50
    It's a formula and hard to describe as good in any artistic sense, but the viewers who pay to see it -- and many, many people are going to -- will get exactly what they want.
  4. 50
    Just a bunch of spotty sketches slapped together that will satisfy no one except the diehards.
  5. An act of nose-thumbing that never quite figures out how, or even where, to position its thumb.
  6. A satisfying hatchet job on the spooky -- or as the Wayans see it, kooky -- world of supernatural pictures.
  7. A pure Frankenstein flick -- ugly, profane, terror-inducing, clumsy, nasty, desperate, stupid, contemptible, horny and brought to life by schlocky, shoddy science and an electric wish to prove that its makers still matter.
  8. Scary Movie 2 had seven writers. Seven. That's one writer for every big laugh in its stealthy 82 minutes. More frightening: these jokes are worth waiting for.

    Whenever the movie's not in the midst of a cinematic spoof it loses considerable steam.
  10. All-out burlesque rather than spoof from the outset, the film becomes less and less amusing. Wayans has a wild zaniness that can be hilarious, but how many bodily function jokes, ultra-crude sexual innuendoes and quite a lot of men and women simply punching each other out can one movie endure?

    "Scary movie 2" might have some few funny, comedic laughs to laugh on. But for me, nothing was funny. The whole thing was a pain in the ass.

    While the first one was funny, this one is just most times disgusting.
    Although I still like some parts of it. My favorite part of the film is the beginning making fun of The Exorcist.
