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

If you're hoping to forget your troubles for 90 minutes, Scary Movie certainly does the job.

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.

This is Dumb American Comedy at its best and well worth 90 minutes of your time.

Scary Movie is sporadically hilarious, and worth seeing for that...

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.

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.

One of the most appallingly hysterical movies of all time.
October 30, 2001
The jokes are frequent but dumb. It's a fun no-brainer night out.

How to review a critic-proof movie.

I am certain someone can make this movie into a credible drinking game...go with a bunch of friends, don't hope for a new watershed in satire, and you'll have an OK time.

There's something exhilarating about a movie that cheerfully defies all respectable standards -- and does it with such wild gusto.
January 1, 2000
Practically guaranteed to make you laugh until you're ashamed of yourself.

The satire is sharp and knowing.

Among today's rude, crude and gleefully non-PC comedies, Scary Movie can be so funny it's scary.
