Scary Movie 2 (2001)



Critic Consensus: Instead of being funny, this gross-out sequel plays like a sloppy, rushed-out product.

Movie Info

This sequel to a box-office sleeper hit that spoofed teen slasher flicks takes its cues from haunted house and possession films, particularly The Haunting (1999) and The Exorcist (1973). Although many of the first film's main characters were homicide victims, Marlon Wayans, Shawn Wayans, and Anna Faris return anyway to "re-possess" their roles for this follow-up in which four students are invited by their professor (Tim Curry) to his haunted mansion, Hell House, for a weekend sleep-deprivation … More

It shows no understanding of or insight into the genre it's attempting to parody, nor indeed of cinema in general.

Scary Movie 2 isn't scary, funny-scary, or even just plain funny.

Dumb humor, insults and gallons of bodily fluids.

Common Sense Media

The screenwriters take desperate measures with so much lame sex jokes, body flashes, and disgusting bathroom humor.

Scarily awful -- this spoof horror franchise needs a stake driven through its heart, and quick...

Perhaps if you send them a stamped, self-addressed envelope they'll tell us why this was thought to be funny.

Audience Reviews for Scary Movie 2

What is most awful about this crass, disgusting and vulgar atrocity of a sequel - written by a thousand incompetent writers - is not that it thinks that a bad horror movie like The Haunting should be spoofed, but that it doesn't manage the most important: to be funny.

Absolutely terrible. A complete remake rather than a sequel with the same jokes and situations around a different not very well thought out story. It's dumb that they kept the same characters who died in the last movie and simply not something I'd watch again.

I remember thinking Scary Movie 2 was absolutely hilarious when I was fifteen. And I still find it funny enough to watch without getting bored, even though the biggest gags don't seem quite as amusing anymore and the jokes that miss are absolutely horrible. The humor is incredibly broad, crude, and childish, as everything is lampooned and referenced from Charlie's Angels to The Matrix to The Exorcist to Nike commercials. I think this is still the best entry in the spoof movie "renaissance" that the original Scary Movie spawned....for whatever that's worth.
