These gags are hardly the height of inspiration, but it could be that people laugh at them because they're not as pathetic as a character having a penis jabbed through his head like an ice pick.

The Wayans brothers just want to make us laugh... And for the first 20 minutes, they do. After that the gag-rate plummets, and it's a long haul to the credits.

The kind of thing that leads to sleepless nights -- from severely bruised rib cages.

There's energy and glee in the movie, as if the Wayans brothers were still little boys, desperately working to out-gross each other. Naughty little boys and girls everywhere, even those who have officially grown up, will appreciate their commitment.

Scary Movie might not be a classic, but it's a solid satire of contemporary slasher films that I had a good time with.

I laughed some at Scary Movie, but I came away from it feeling dirty.

This movie will only frighten you with its crudeness.

Ends up being less funny than its primary target, the already-self-satirizing Scream series.

Scary 1 is a funny slasher while Scary 2 switches to the supernatural. Scary 3 is faintly X-Files-ish and Scary 4 is distinctly sci-fi. They're so clever.

The appeal seems to lie less in laughter than in respect for the filmmakers' irreverence as viewers sit back and think, "I can't believe they showed that!"

Is it gross? Yes. Is it tasteless? Yes. And you can say the very same thing about the films that Scary Movie parodies.

If you're hoping to forget your troubles for 90 minutes, Scary Movie certainly does the job.
December 6, 2005
Does its spoofing with a blunt instrument instead of a scalpel, and it's engineered to appeal to the lowest instincts of its targeted adolescent audiences.

Scary Movie's humor is definitely in the gutter.
September 30, 2005
The humor in this movie is based on the concept that if enough jokes are fired off in a row, some of them will make you laugh. The concept works.
