Along comes Marlon Wayans to do in A Haunted House what he once did in Scary Movie. And do it much, much worse.

A movie that offends every moral sensibility but delivers few comedic rewards.

Does it even qualify as a movie? Why did it take two people to write and cost $2.5 million to make?

You might chuckle at Wayans huddled in the tub, frantically trying to scrub himself clean of something slightly more earthly-freaky than evil spirits. But watching him get it on with stuffed animals? Ick.

There are vague hints that the story is "really" about the difficulties and anxiety of commitment, but then one of many variations on a fart joke distracts from any actual idea.

If the opening gag in your R-rated movie is an extended flatulence joke you should reconsider whether you're qualified to make such a movie.

Harkens back to the initial days of the oughties spoof craze, when screenwriters actually lampooned film genres rather than whatever the hell happened to catch their eye on YouTube as they sought inspiration.

Disrespect is the name of the game for this flat, by-the-numbers Paranormal Activity spoof, which suggests that letting your girlfriend move in with you is pretty much tantamount to opening the gates of hell.

The craftsmanship here isn't just lacking, it's nonexistent, and the found-footage conceit is little more than a rickety structure to house an endless gauntlet of hackneyed jokes involving sex, flatulence, pot, and feces.

A frenetic and freewheeling satirical comedy that only sporadically scores a bull's-eye while aiming at easy targets.

This parody of Paranormal Activity and other found-footage horror films too often substitutes raunch for wit.

The homophobia that saturates [this film] is no mere joking around. It comes from a place of hate and [the filmmakers] must be held accountable.

Mean-spirited, badly made and unfunny is one set of disasters; adding in storytelling incompetence adds to the catastrophe.
