Dumb humor, insults and gallons of bodily fluids.

The screenwriters take desperate measures with so much lame sex jokes, body flashes, and disgusting bathroom humor.

Scarily awful -- this spoof horror franchise needs a stake driven through its heart, and quick...

Perhaps if you send them a stamped, self-addressed envelope they'll tell us why this was thought to be funny.

It shows no understanding of or insight into the genre it's attempting to parody, nor indeed of cinema in general.

We can only hope this excrement masquerading as humor will bury the gross-out genre once and for all.

Basically just a bunch of silly spoof scenes cobbled together around a thin premise, it allows the Wayans brothers to have fun in the way a group of kids might have fun with a video camcorder, except with a multi-million-dollar budget.

If you didn't like the first one, stay away, but if you got a few good chuckles out of it, you'll get more of the same with the sequel. I guess it's a matter of personal (bad) taste.

In a classic 'too many cooks' scenario, Scary Movie 2 never manages to put even the semblance of a plot together.

the opening 15 minutes was absolutely gut-wretchingly hysterical. I laughed more at this second film than I did at the first one...

The creators of Scary Movie 2 have forgotten one crucial fact about the horror genre--for every Scream 2 there are twenty Blair Witch 2s.

Shadows on the Wall
January 27, 2002
It's just terrible, with long stretches in which the sea of writers don't even try to insert any humour, followed by an attempted joke that doesn't work on any level.

January 7, 2002 does have one redeeming attribute: brevity.

That the first film's primary target/model was Scream and that this one's is The Haunting says everything about its creative bankruptcy.

Scary Movie 2 isn't scary, funny-scary, or even just plain funny.
October 28, 2001
The film had eleven writers. I don't see why it needed any. It's unstructured, plotless, and even the truly funny moments are merely juvenile stabs in the dark.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

More of the same...only less funny.

Filme producto de la excesiva comercialización que tuvo su predecesor

If you haven't seen the target film, not only is it not funny, it becomes totally pointless.

It's the wackiness of the whole thing that makes it work.
