    Isn't it amazing to see just how low some people will stoop if you pay them enough?

    Jokes from Scary Movie 3 are recycled ad nauseam.

    Scary Movie 4 concludes by satirizing Cruise's couch-jumping orgy on "Oprah." Funny, but nowhere near as hilarious as the real thing.

    Part sketch-comedy cartoon, part Cracked magazine spoof, installment four is the most scornfully made yet.

    Worse than Scary Movies 1 through 3… And they were terrible.

    So lazy it's downright boring, something not even a naked Leslie Nielson (!) can salvage.

    A stupid movie which is only mildly amusing, and only mildly amusing every 10 minutes. Leslie Nielsen has less screen time to Scary Movie 3A stupid movie which is only mildly amusing, and only mildly amusing every 10 minutes. Leslie Nielsen has less screen time to Scary Movie 3 which is always a bad sign. The acting is terrible, the special effects are terrible, the plot is terrible but the jokes are alright.

    Anna Faris leave this franchise now so it can be so bad it will stop making movies. As unoriginal as expected and silly, stupid and offensive.Anna Faris leave this franchise now so it can be so bad it will stop making movies. As unoriginal as expected and silly, stupid and offensive. I will always wonder why this franchise is making money at all. It has everything bad from all four movies. I do not think the series will ever be good again. I give this movie 24%. Full Review »
