I know it is the 4th installment in the series. And I know the first 3 were not very good either but this one was bad, really bad. So bad I fast forwarded a few scenes.
Take key scenes from Saw, War of the Worlds, The Village, The Grudge, Brokeback Mountain and Million Dollar Baby. Add juvenile bathroom humor (is that redundant?) and you have Scary Movie 4. That seems to be the formula for the entire series so I was not surprised, but Anna Faris usually saves the movies. This time not even the hilarious comedienne can make this worth a watch.
I have seen this series being compared to Airplane and Naked Gun - it is NOTHING like them! Those were parodies but original in their own way. Sure they took elements from other movies but they did not "sample" (to use a music term) from those films.
I love horror movies and love spoofs but this one is a dud. Go watch Scream, Young Frankenstein or the ultimate slasher spoof - Student Bodies.
I love a good spoof and thoroughly enjoyed Scary Movie and Scary Movie 3. One thing that USUALLY makes this series of movies so good is that many of the same characters keep making repeat appearances- even if they have "died" in a previous movie. But for me this 4th Scary Movie was just not as funny. Maybe it's getting old... At any rate, I didn't find the "borrowed" scenes from horror films (including, The Grudge, War of the Worlds and The Village) to be very well done this time and the storyline was not as good as in previous movies- it seemed more like a bunch of individual scenes squashed together rather than a coherent story. I also found much of the humor to be raw and even more juvenile than usual (more along the lines of Scary Movie 2)- like the overabundance of bathroom type humor that is carried WAY too far.
Scary Movie 4 was well..Just another Scary Movie installment, It was Great! I saw my self laughing non stop on alot of the parody's of hollywoods main stream films, such as "War of the Worlds" "Saw 2" "The Village" "The Grudge"
Scary movie 4 manages to squeeze together all these movies into one, mixing the stories of these films into one hysterical movie. The gags are simply outrageous, the filmmakers really pushed the limit on this film. This film is definately a must see! and lastly at the end of the film before rolling the credits its pokes fun of the Tom Cruize Oprah incident where he was scene jumping on her couch on her show...But this is Scary Movie 4, the parody was INSANE!!! soo funny really you will catch your self laughing hysterically if you love comedy and love to laugh.
The first two scary movies were really good. Atleast better than 3 and 4 because the Wayans brothers played a large part in them. I thought Charlie Sheen might have a larger role in 4th as compared to the 3rd, but you see him for no longer than a minute.
Pros- Some very funny humor, some of the same actors as in previous scary movies, made fun of recent pop culture and political events, somewhat entertaining.
Cons- Potty humor, strange plot, a few parts were extremelly funny, but that was it.
Definitely worth seeing if you like this series or you can find a good deal on the movie, otherwise save your money for something you may have more interest in.
Yep, too much of a good thing is definitely bad!
With so much expected of this movie after watching the first three, I was seriously disappointed. Too much focus on spoofing the latest Tom Cruise movie, War of The Worlds and The Village.
The lead actor, Craig Bierko, is about as dry and uninteresting as he was as the jazz playing boyfriend of Carrie's in Sex and The City. Definitely not funny!
I can honestly say I only laughed 3 times during the whole movie and I'm one who finds humor in most things. It's not even as though there were stupid-funny moments in Scary Movie 4, and honestly I expected more from the unrated version.
In my honest opinion, stick with Scary Movie 1, 2, and 3. Don't ruin the memory of the trilogy with the 4th!
