  1. The whole thing reeks of sequelitis, with an emphasis on the rude and crude.
  2. The material has a definite "haven't-we-been over-this-before?" feel.
  3. 30
    The movie occasionally makes an unexpectereference -- though with more desperation than wit.
  4. The Worst Comedy of the Year race heats up today with the release of Keenen Ivory Wayans' Scary Movie 2. This one is so bad, even Adam Sandler will be impressed.
  5. Isn't scary, funny-scary, or even just plain funny.
  6. Scary Movie 2 has something for potheads and the potty-mouthed alike. Anyone looking for a true sequel, however, will be disappointed.
  7. 16
    Stinky, boring, aggressively unfunny picture.
  8. 20
    Shows about a third less craft than its all-too-lame predecessor, and it's only half as funny. If those are figures you can deal with, enter the theater at your own peril.
  9. There's a vicious, crude nerve that snakes through this sequel and it leaves no group unscarred -- but unfortunately, women and the handicapped take most of the thrusts.
  10. 30
    This crude comedy delivers on the "No Shame, No Mercy" threats from the original. Unfortunately, it all adds up to "No Good."

    30
    Technically and comedically strained by the demands of its special effects-filled haunted house setting. Worse, the need to top the first pic's outlandish stunts is ghoulishly unfulfilled and terribly ironic.
  12. 10
    The Wayans brothers' new bottom-feeder signals its utter exhaustion -- and barely veiled contempt for the audience.
  13. A pocket of infection on the skin of the American body cultural.

    "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.
