More Info:
  • F. X. Feeney

    The Wayanses can be crude beyond crude, but they're so clever that their inventiveness takes the place of taste.

  • Michael O'Sullivan

    It's a lot more tightly focused than the first outing, and for fans of the demented comedy of Elliott and Cross, or the thespian chops of Woods (a last-minute replacement for an ailing Marlon Brando), it's worth putting up with humor that's the filmic equivalent of a big, spit-soaked raspberry.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • M.V. Moorhead

    Most of it is incredibly, gleefully crude and tasteless, but it is also good-natured and harmless, and there's a pretty good chance you'll find yourself laughing.

  • Robert K. Elder

    Scary Movie 2 had seven writers. Seven. That's one writer for every big laugh in its stealthy 82 minutes. More frightening: these jokes are worth waiting for.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Charles Savage

    It's a formula and hard to describe as good in any artistic sense, but the viewers who pay to see it -- and many, many people are going to -- will get exactly what they want.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    A pure Frankenstein flick -- ugly, profane, terror-inducing, clumsy, nasty, desperate, stupid, contemptible, horny and brought to life by schlocky, shoddy science and an electric wish to prove that its makers still matter.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Loren King

    Just a bunch of spotty sketches slapped together that will satisfy no one except the diehards.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Stephen Miller

    A satisfying hatchet job on the spooky -- or as the Wayans see it, kooky -- world of supernatural pictures.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    An act of nose-thumbing that never quite figures out how, or even where, to position its thumb.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Kevin Thomas

    All-out burlesque rather than spoof from the outset, the film becomes less and less amusing. Wayans has a wild zaniness that can be hilarious, but how many bodily function jokes, ultra-crude sexual innuendoes and quite a lot of men and women simply punching each other out can one movie endure?

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Scary Movie 2 has something for potheads and the potty-mouthed alike. Anyone looking for a true sequel, however, will be disappointed.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    This crude comedy delivers on the "No Shame, No Mercy" threats from the original. Unfortunately, it all adds up to "No Good."

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Robert Koehler

    Technically and comedically strained by the demands of its special effects-filled haunted house setting. Worse, the need to top the first pic's outlandish stunts is ghoulishly unfulfilled and terribly ironic.

    Variety Full Review
  • Lisa Alspector

    The movie occasionally makes an unexpectereference -- though with more desperation than wit.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Jack Mathews

    The Worst Comedy of the Year race heats up today with the release of Keenen Ivory Wayans' Scary Movie 2. This one is so bad, even Adam Sandler will be impressed.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Desperately unfunny.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    The whole thing reeks of sequelitis, with an emphasis on the rude and crude.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Shows about a third less craft than its all-too-lame predecessor, and it's only half as funny. If those are figures you can deal with, enter the theater at your own peril. Full Review
  • Stephen Hunter

    A pocket of infection on the skin of the American body cultural.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Kim Morgan

    Stinky, boring, aggressively unfunny picture.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Paula Nechak

    There's a vicious, crude nerve that snakes through this sequel and it leaves no group unscarred -- but unfortunately, women and the handicapped take most of the thrusts.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Isn't scary, funny-scary, or even just plain funny.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Dennis Lim

    The Wayans brothers' new bottom-feeder signals its utter exhaustion -- and barely veiled contempt for the audience.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Cody Clark

    Whenever the movie's not in the midst of a cinematic spoof it loses considerable steam.
