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

mindless fun

This movie will only frighten you with its crudeness.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
January 7, 2010
Ends up being less funny than its primary target, the already-self-satirizing Scream series.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
July 4, 2008
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!"

If you're hoping to forget your troubles for 90 minutes, Scary Movie certainly does the job.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
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.
Full Review | Original Score: D

Scary Movie's humor is definitely in the gutter.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
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.

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

Scary Movie is a sporadically hilarious parody of teen horror movies that too frequently seems half-baked.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
May 20, 2003
Make no mistake -- this one is lowbrow comedy all the way.
| Original Score: 2/4
February 8, 2003
[The Wayans'] approach, incorporating the crude humor that has become so popular of late, generates an unfortunate digression from the point.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 2, 2002
The air of desperation is emphasised by the insistence on padding out horror-movie gags with crude Farrelly-style humour.
October 30, 2002
This is Dumb American Comedy at its best and well worth 90 minutes of your time.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
September 10, 2002
Scary Movie is sporadically hilarious, and worth seeing for that...
August 2, 2002
I couldn't help wishing I were watching that obscure little children's fantasy instead. As I recall, it's a lot funnier and more frightening than Scary Movie.
June 5, 2002
By far director/actor Keenen Ivory Wayans' best parody effort to date, primarily because he here taps into a rejuvenated genre and is given access to broader subject matter with universal appeal.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
March 22, 2002
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.
