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.

Would it be asking too much if the hit-and-miss jokes could maybe nudge an inch beyond the obvious?

It's scary that it took six people to write a movie this bad.
January 1, 2000
It's just crude, rude and socially unacceptable.
January 1, 2000
The first 10 minutes are its funniest, most inventive and best crafted. The Wayanses seemed to have stopped worrying about the quality of their work from that point on.

The jokes in Scary Movie do everything to signal their arrival except call ahead and book a hotel room.

This movie, too, will pass.
January 1, 2000
Usually what you're laughing at is ugliness.
January 1, 2000
A movie that keeps testing just how low it can go.
January 1, 2000
Like most gag-driven farces, it's a hit or miss affair.
January 1, 2000
Anything resembling taste, wit or political correctness is strictly prohibited.
January 1, 2000
This movie, by any name, would be as entertaining.
January 1, 2000
The Wayans have shown they have more talent than this.
January 1, 2000
Scary Movie is less than satisfactory.
January 1, 2000
Scary Movie is a good showcase for a talented, youthful cast, and the film is carried with aplomb by newcomer Faris, a fearless comedian and an appealing ingnue.
