  • Ernest Hardy

    It's very funny and - at times - even witty in a crude, drunken frat-boy-with-an-epiphany kind of way. Full Review
  • Kevin Thomas

    While undeniably silly and violent in a cartoon-like manner, is by and large a hilarious skewering of the clichés of teen pix.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Is it funny? Yes, it is.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Jami Bernard

    The jokes are wild, raunchy, surreal and dead-on.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Bob Graham

    The scary thing about this spoof of '90s teen horror movies is how funny it is.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    Deadly funny.

    San Francisco Examiner Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    The whole thing wobbles, like the garish, trashy, sexy shoes the young folks are wearing this summer on their way (in droves) to movie theaters, intent on abandoning themselves to pleasurable mindlessness.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Luke Y. Thompson

    Actually quite amusing, thanks mainly to a script that keeps the gags flying so fast that even though so many of them are bad, they're quickly followed by something new, and occasionally something good.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Joe Leydon

    Manages an impressively huge score in the hit-or-miss gag ratio.

    Variety Full Review
  • Lisa Alspector

    Political incorrectness, gross-out humor, references for their own sake, and some real wit are distributed over the 85 minutes with an unusually consistent sense of timing and proportion, and the tone is just right.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Kevin Maynard

    A raunchy, scattershot, but often hilarious spoof.

    Mr. Showbiz Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    Gross, sophomoric, offensive, nasty, cheap and mean -- and so funny again and again that you plumb near forget all that's reprehensible about it.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Does serve up an inspired gag every once in a while.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Jonathan Foreman

    The gleeful teen-horror spoof that proves that the Farrelly brothers have no monopoly on outrageous, politically incorrect comedy.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Its grossness knows no bounds, and you'd have to be dead not to laugh.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Jay Carr

    The question facing the target audience for Scary Movie is whether the funny bits will be enough of a payoff for sitting through the tedious stuff between them.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    If you're amused by jokes involving male genitals, female pubic hair, flatulence and dismemberment, it should be a big hit.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • J. Rentilly

    Offers, on a drop-by-drop basis, more semen than a Ron Jeremy flick.

    TNT RoughCut Full Review
  • Chris Kaltenbach

    It's easy to be offensive in a movie; it's much harder to be funny. Which is why Scary Movie emerges as such a waste; when you're so good at the latter, why keep falling back on the former?

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Stephen Miller

    Surprisingly cohesive.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Robert Horton

    Destined to be remembered not for its laugh-per-minute ratio, but for breaking a barrier of crudeness in mainstream movies. Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    Some of the funny stuff is actually funny, some of it is funny and yucky, but most of it is just stupid.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Michael Atkinson

    A big, stupid bull with bodacious tits, but that's not to say it doesn't dish out some lite hardy-hars.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Marc Caro

    Usually what you're laughing at is ugliness, and that leaves a foul taste long before the 85 minutes have expired.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Might have been funnier if it had been put together with more care.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    Did I laugh? Yeah, I did, half a dozen times. Not a great percentage for a film with something close to 300 quote-unquote jokes.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Rita Kempley

    The only thing that's truly scary about the movie is the escalating vulgarity of the latest in a string of skanky comedies by filmmakers determined to out-gross the other.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    Maybe I'm just too old to appreciate the startling sight of a phallus jammed into someone's ear.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Other (Specify)

    There are a number of funny and unexpected moments in the film, but they are ultimately swamped by the mean-spirited tone and increasingly over-the-top raunch and drug humor.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Charles Taylor

    I walked out of Scary Movie feeling as if I'd been whacked around with a two-by-four for an hour and a half. Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    I'd rather have a testicular nail-gun mishap than sit through this migraine-inducing train wreck of a film one more time.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • F. X. Feeney

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

    L.A. Weekly 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.

    New Times (L.A.) Full Review
  • 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
  • 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
  • Loren King

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

    Boston Globe 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
  • Stephen Miller

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

    TV Guide Magazine 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
  • 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
  • Cody Clark

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

    Mr. Showbiz 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
  • Lisa Alspector

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

    Chicago Reader 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
  • 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
  • Stephen Hunter

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

    Washington 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
  • 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.
