It shows no understanding of or insight into the genre it's attempting to parody, nor indeed of cinema in general.
October 29, 2001
Scary Movie 2 isn't scary, funny-scary, or even just plain funny.
September 10, 2001
If you haven't seen the target film, not only is it not funny, it becomes totally pointless.
July 16, 2001
An act of nose-thumbing that never quite figures out how, or even where, to position its thumb.
July 10, 2001
This time Wayans and company don't so much lampoon their targets as ineptly copy them.
July 6, 2001
It's a lot more tightly focused than the first outing.
July 6, 2001
If you took out all the jokes about bodily fluids, the movie could run five minutes instead of 83, and we could all go home.
July 6, 2001
The film never really regains the opening scene's momentum.
July 6, 2001
The inevitable sequel delivers the same schtick, but it's only fresh by half.
July 5, 2001
Well-made and directed with finesse by old pro Keenen Ivory Wayans.

This isn't a movie -- it's a vaudeville sketch aimed at the lowest common denominator.
July 5, 2001
A pocket of infection on the skin of the American body cultural.
July 5, 2001
Predictable but only occasionally amusing.
July 5, 2001
So remarkably shapeless you can imagine Shawn and Marlon hashing out scenes between presenters at last year's MTV Video Music Awards.
July 5, 2001
It shows no particular insight into the movies or cultural phenomena being mocked.
July 5, 2001
When did comedy become so lazy?
July 5, 2001
The picture wastes barely a second heading straight into the toilet.
July 5, 2001
Just a bunch of spotty sketches slapped together that will satisfy no one except the diehards.
July 4, 2001
Some will find this funny. Some people laugh themselves silly flushing the toilet over and over.
July 4, 2001
Watching Scary Movie 2 is like Chinese water torture -- you start dreading the next drip long before it drops.
