It's a far cry from the hilarious, edgy antics of Scary Movie, but it has about as much going for it as the first sequel.

Faris is left to pathetically flail for laughs by getting, you guessed it, bonked on the head. First, she gets hit with a baseball and then (spoiler alert!) she's drilled with a football.

Even at 75-ish minutes, the thing practically limps to the finish line, desperately tossing random gags up on the screen.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

Watching the movie is quite a bit like reading a slightly out-of-date Mad magazine or, I guess I should say, quite a bit like I remember Mad as a seventh-grader.

The entire film is predicated on turgid slapstick bits that simply congratulate viewers for having seen a handful of recent studio blockbusters.

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.

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?

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

For those of you happy with paying to see more of the usual, Scary Movie 4 delivers a few decent laughs.

The gags are hit-and-miss, and regardless of their success, they categorically go on too long.

Movie Eye

...a cockeyed collection of watered-down, lowbrow parodies that have all the revered spark of a joy buzzer jolting an arthritic patient during a spontaneous handshake.

A lazy little product of mediocrity that will be woefully outdated in the next year...

Scary Movie 4's biggest challenge is trying to stay relevant and original, and these writers could never be accused of being original

I really hate to admit this, but the film made me laugh on several occasions.

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

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