  • The latest installment of the slick, highly profitable parody franchise.

  • It's supposed to be funny, but you'd have an easier time reading a zombie's pulse than you would finding a single good laugh ...

  • For the art-house crowd, who may, I suppose, stumble drunk into the wrong theater after too much Chardonnay, there are nods to Black Swan and 127 Hours.

    Apr 13, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • A film composed almost entirely of jokes that were much funnier when you read them on Twitter years ago.

    Apr 12, 2013 | Rating: D | Full Review…
  • Like so much of this whole series, the mere mention of a familiar pop culture figure or title is supposed to be hilarious.

  • Scary Movie 5 must be some kind of psychological experiment. Perhaps the filmmakers sat in a lab, rubbing their temples while wondering aloud how awful they could make a movie and still score at the box office.

    Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan steal the film. If only they starred in it, rather than just be in it for 2 or 3 scenes, then the film might have been better. Scary Movie franchise isn't as good as the Naked Gun or Hot Shot comedy franchises. I kind of missed Anna Farris here. Ashley Tisdale is no Anna Farris. The film did have a few funny moments, but not a lot.

    It's like every other Scary Movie before, completely dumb and full of nonsense. Charlie Sheen and Snoop Dogg were the two people that stood out for me in this film and its a shame they weren't in it a lot longer as I may have given it more stars. Definitely should be the last one, they've run out of ideas.

    Scary Movie 5 - This may be one of the worst spoof movies I have ever seen! It takes everything that was ever good or just decent about the other "Scary Movie" films and breaks the back of the franchise. It is dead dead dead. Hardly a laugh comes from this film at all. I will say that it is more clever than the hideous "30 Nights of Paranormal Activity with the Devil Inside the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" that came out earlier this year and attempted to make you laugh. I've seen worse films, but this is one of the worst this year by far. It's unfunny, crude, rude, and completely ridiculous. "Scary Movie 5" is not quite as bad as I think the second film is, but there is nothing good about this film besides a few gags here and there that made me chuckle and save me from killing myself out of boredom. This is a terrible film!

    Unbearably awful, Scary Movie V is a steaming pile of shit. Primarily the film parodies Mama and Paranormal Activity, but there are also parodies of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Inception, Black Swan, and Evil Dead. However, none of the parodies are done very well and the production value is atrociously bad. And the acting (if it can be called that) is terrible at best. Scary Movie V isn't so much a movie as a bunch of garbage thrown onto a screen.
