By the time you get to see the fourth incarnation of any movie franchise, you should be pretty sure what you're in for %u2013 and this one is true to its brand. It's corny, mischievous and more than a tad tacky in places.

A lazy little product of mediocrity that will be woefully outdated in the next year...

High production values and seemingly endless celebrity cameos only moderately elevate the scattershot satire of the Scary Movie franchise.

Despite an infusion of talent once associated with everything from Airplane to Hot Shots ... Scary Movie 4 feels ... far more tired and worn out that the films it spoofs ...

In a quarter of a century who's even going to remember that Tom Cruise went on Oprah's show and made an ass of himself?

A film with more chuckles then guffaws, hopefully the producers will settle on better movies to make fun of next time around.

...there's simply no denying that these movies (and parodies in general, it would seem) have long-since outlived their usefulness.

Has the fourth of any film series ever worked? This does! It's a franchise that could keep on scaring up the spoofs and mixed metaphors till the cows come home to roost.

It hits a few broad targets and misses many more, leaving the door open to continue the series indefinitely.

There is a certain slapdash energy and heedless silliness to the proceedings that is somewhat engaging, certainly more so than the hateful likes of Date Movie.

Nada mais é do que uma colagem de referências que se julga inteligente apenas por ser capaz de recriar cenas conhecidas de outras produções.

The humor is supposed to come from the recognition that another movie or entertainment world incident from the pages of Us Weekly is having fun poked at it.

This franchise will never make the history books, but, you know, if they have to keep coming, this is probably the best of the lot, with more laughs than you might expect.

Scary Movie 4 is a fun time out at the pictures, but the genre has become so unnecessarily vicious over the last few years, and has lost its way so desperately, that you end up feeling rather guilty for laughing at it.

Too much potty humor -- and not enough inspired comedy -- sink this fourth installment in the SM franchise.
