Scary Movie 4 (2006) – His Review October 21, 2006

Dir. David Zucker

Starring Anna Faris, Anthony Anderson, Bill Pullman, Molly Shannon

Scary Movie was a fairly bland experience. Scary Movie 2 I liked a lot. Scary Movie 3 had some good ideas, but lacked in execution.

So.. how does number 4 square up against it’s predecessors? Well, if you’re a fan of the series and their style, and you have seen the movies that it spoofs this time around (Saw, War of the Worlds, The Village, The Grudge, etc), you may laugh.. oh maybe a dozen times. If you’re not really a fan I suggest you skip it.

I like spoofs in general, and stupid jokes can be really liberating, but in this case it’s like watching a clown punching himself in the nuts for an hour and a half. It’s painful to watch in the same way that Robin Hood: Men in Tights was – like you’re attending the funeral of a few careers. Well, the folks in that one survived fairly well after all, so I do hope Zucker and company can come back with some new, fresh ideas. Like an actual stand-alone movie perhaps?

It’s one of those “everything funny is in the trailer”-movies.

Yeah, agree with Third Opinion.
