Scary Movie 5 Review

What's Good:
Very few parody scenes are at-least worth watching.... by 'Very Few', we mean very very few!
What's Bad:
Many weird scenes which do not at all fit in the parody genre... 'Scary Movie 5' is the worst of the once upon a time, successful parody franchisee.
Verdict:
A critic rightly said it '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.'
Watch or Not:
Watch it if you want to forcibly spook yourself, and would love some unconventional plot at the cost of disappointing acts.

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 ...
Critic Score: 1/4

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.
Critic Score: 2.5/5

A film composed almost entirely of jokes that were much funnier when you read them on Twitter years ago.
Critic Score: D

Like so much of this whole series, the mere mention of a familiar pop culture figure or title is supposed to be hilarious.
Critic Score: 1/5

A hate crime against cinema, a ringing indictment of the depths commercialism will go to in search of the lowest common denominator.
Critic Score: .5/10

You know that friend of yours, the one who can't tell even the simplest joke? Watching him struggle for 85 minutes would still be funnier than this movie.

[A] numbingly inane if cheerfully up-to-the-minute new entry in a franchise presumed to have breathed its last seven years ago.

Put it this way, there's a spoof of "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" in which gorillas throw their feces at the wall to see if it sticks, and you can't help wondering if this is actual documentary footage of the script meetings.
Critic Score: 1/4

Spoofing movies ranging from Black Swan to Mama to Paranormal Activity, this installment of the profitable series is woefully, painfully unfunny.
