Scary Movie 4
Film Review
Reviewed By
1 out of 5

The tired format limps on here with Scary Movie 3 director David Zucker returning - but now well past his Airplane! prime. The intersecting parodies include the Saw films, The Grudge, War of the Worlds and The Village with nods to Million Dollar Baby and Brokeback Mountain thrown in for good measure alongside pop culture references to Oprah and Michael Jackson. Anna Faris gamely plays the naive, accident-prone Cindy Campbell for the fourth time, in a fatigued franchise that is still recycling the most ancient slapstick and toilet gags. Witless, obvious and completely devoid of anything remotely funny, even the most undemanding audience will find little to laugh at in this practically unwatchable dud aimed (presumably) at the post-pub DVD rental market.

Plot Summary

Horror spoof starring Anna Faris and Regina Hall that includes send-ups of Saw, The Grudge, The War of the Worlds and The Village.
