By the time you get to see the fourth incarnation of any movie franchise, you should be pretty sure what you're in for %u2013 and this one is true to its brand. It's corny, mischievous and more than a tad tacky in places.

A film with more chuckles then guffaws, hopefully the producers will settle on better movies to make fun of next time around.

Has the fourth of any film series ever worked? This does! It's a franchise that could keep on scaring up the spoofs and mixed metaphors till the cows come home to roost.

There is a certain slapdash energy and heedless silliness to the proceedings that is somewhat engaging, certainly more so than the hateful likes of Date Movie.

This franchise will never make the history books, but, you know, if they have to keep coming, this is probably the best of the lot, with more laughs than you might expect.

Scary Movie 4 is a fun time out at the pictures, but the genre has become so unnecessarily vicious over the last few years, and has lost its way so desperately, that you end up feeling rather guilty for laughing at it.
| Original Score: 3/5

Who doesn't like a good Charlie Sheen / Viagra gag? I mean, besides Heidi Fleiss...

I can take a gross movie as well as anyone, but seeing Leslie Nielsen naked in "Scary Movie 4" pretty much set the limit.

More disposable than a five-day-old Good News razor, David Zucker's Scary Movie 4 is strictly a movie for the moment.

You know exactly what you're going to get, and you get it. Is that so wrong?

The jokes miss more than they hit, but there are a lot of them, and when they work, it's gold.

Cheap laughs are better than no laughs at all.

There's a kinda/sorta plot going on here that strings together a bunch of gags, which work more often than not.

Spoofing on surprisingly solid footing for a third sequel, Scary Movie 4 continues the shift from horror to slap-shtick that director David Zucker began with No. 3 in 2003.
| Original Score: 3/4

For what it's worth, Scary Movie 4 probably is the best entry in this strangely resilient series.

If you enjoyed any of the previous Scary Movies this one will likely appeal to you. The humor is broad, but much of it hits.
