How can someone review a movie meant to be dumb and stupid in order to generate laughs? I guess one needs to lower one’s I.Q. just so one could relate to what he has seen with SCARY MOVIE 5.
Well, I have a twisted sense of humor and I like horror films made fun of. I also have the occasional fondness for raunchy comedy. “Scary Movie 5” has the horror film “MaMa” as the main driving force to generate laughs as well as “Paranormal Activity 4”. Funny references to “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”, “Black Swan”, “Evil Dead” and “Cabin in the Woods” were also made to generate laughter. Ashley Tisdale is kind of cute and Simon Rex is in familiar territory after the last two “Scary Movie’s”. Cameos from Katrina Bowden, Heather Locklear, Bow Wow, Usher, Molly Shannon and Snoop Dogg gave it a feeling of…WTF?!
I do have to admit that it had some moments that made me laugh, and any movie that makes fun of Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan do get some points. But this is easily the weakest movie in the “Scary Movie” franchise. It feels a little too old. If you see this from the stupid humor meter, it would score a 4 Out of 5, but as a movie it sadly only scores a weak 2 Out of 5 Stars.
