Scary Movie 4 > Wiki


Some comedy is like a scalpel; theScary Movieseries is a hand grenade, spewing bodily fluids and big-breasted women in all directions as they lampoon the latest horror. InScary Movie 4's case, the main targets areWar of the Worlds, The Village, The Grudge, Saw, and Tom Cruise jumping all over Oprah's couch (the scariest of the lot). Along the way, potshots get taken at non-horror fare likeBrokeback MountainandMillion Dollar Baby, as well as obvious targets like Michael Jackson and George W. Bush, among others. Anna Faris (Lost in Translation) and Regina Hall (The Honeymooners) return as the central characters wandering through a crazy quilt of horror scenarios, joined by Craig Bierko (Cinderella Man) doing a dead-on parody of Cruise at his most manic. Cameos include everyone from Charlie Sheen to Shaquille O'Neal to Carmen Electra. Some of it's funny, some of it's not, but there's a generally buoyant zaniness that comes from director David Zucker, one of the creators ofAirplane!, which started the whole firehose-of-jokes aesthetic.--Bret Fetzer

First off, I have to mention how excited I was to see the 4th film of scary movie!!!! I was looking forward to seeing it, but I have to say- at the end of the movie I found myself feeling slightly disappointed. Don't get me wrong, it's an OK film, but it sadly lacked the comedy of the other 3 films. I was very pleased to see Brenda back; however, not even she could bring this up to the standards of the others.    It felt as if each scene was rushed and just randomly placed together- …

Pros: Some good laughs.     Cons: Zero Plot and some jokes do not work.     The Bottom Line: For fans of the series only.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot.
