Let’s be serious here, the Scary Movie franchise is one that probably should have ended around the third installment, and don’t even get me started on all of the other companion movies that are attached to it (Epic Movie, Superhero Movie, etc.). However, a lot of people seem to still like them, and fair is fair. Having been a fan of the first three Scary Movies, I knew that when the trailer for 5 was released nearly over a year ago, I needed to give it a chance. I really wish I hadn’t bothered. I’m still mad at myself for wasting money on this disaster.
I love stupid humour as much as the next person, but even the jokes in this movie that were clearly meant to get a cheap laugh flat-out sucked. They weren’t funny. Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen’s cameos were incredibly unoriginal and pretty much used the same jokes that are made about them every second day in the tabloids. Also, every time Ashley Tisdale was on screen, it just felt like she was trying way too hard. “Look at me! Look at me! I’m a woman and I have boobs now and I don’t work at the Tipton Hotel and hang out with Zack and Cody anymore!”
Something weird I found about this movie was the amount of creepy little kids all throughout it. And it’s not like they were in it to be scary, but more so to make really grotesque gestures that no little kid should probably ever do. It wasn’t funny; it just came off as cheap and disgusting.
I really want to find something positive to say about this movie, I really do, but I just can’t. It’s not funny and, at times, it comes off as almost boring. Seriously, don’t waste your money or your time.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMDZ8M47j0I]
