Scary Movie 4 is so lazy it's downright boring, something not even a naked Leslie Nielsen (!) can salvage.

Even [Anna Faris] must recognize that the series has turned into the cinematic equivalent of a flat bicycle tyre -- it starts off with lots of air in it, but can quickly go flat when punctured.

Some hearty laughs, but there's also a lot of effluence-based humor to wade through.

This time out, what's scary is how boring and unimaginative the series has become.

If you've had a hard week, it provides a healthy dose of whatever.

The film quickly abandons biting sarcasm in favor of gumming you to a sloppy, slow death.

This movie getting a PG-13 rating is really scary

David Zucker, who once had one of the most supple comic touches in the business, has turned into the chowderhead who keeps elbowing you in the ribs asking, 'Get it? Get it?'

Common Sense Media

The first moments, drawn from Saw, feature the two least professional and most engaging performers: Dr. Phil and Shaq are chained in the basement and their escape depends on Shaq making free throws, which he cannot do, er, to save his life.

Every scene looks like it was thrown together in two sloppy takes.

Who doesn't like a good Charlie Sheen / Viagra gag? I mean, besides Heidi Fleiss...

The law of diminishing returns is in full effect here -- there are a couple of inspired gags but most fall embarrassingly flat.

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

The humor is mostly flat and obvious, but Anna Faris' ability to maintain a straight face as well as her dignity under the most demeaning of circumstances continues to impress.

There's possibly nothing sadder in the world of cinema than a comedy trying this hard for laughs.

The cleverness dies slowly in this horror spoof ... reaching bottom with a bevy of bathroom jokes and the offal appearance of Leslie Nielsen as a dithering, Bush-league president.

I can take a gross movie as well as anyone, but seeing Leslie Nielsen naked in "Scary Movie 4" pretty much set the limit.
