Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Watch (sober) at your peril."
‑ Anna Smith, Time Out
"Scary Movie 4 never takes you close to death by laughter, as the Naked Gun films did. But it's funny enough to turn the hands on your watch much more quickly than you can believe."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"By the time you get to see the fourth incarnation of any movie franchise, you should be pretty sure what you're in for %u2013 and this one is true to its brand. It's corny, mischievous and more than a tad tacky in places."
‑ Simon Weaving, Screenwize
"Despite an infusion of talent once associated with everything from Airplane to Hot Shots ... Scary Movie 4 feels ... far more tired and worn out that the films it spoofs ..."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"There are some laughs in this latest installment."
‑ Frank Lovece, Film Journal International
"What makes it to the screen feels pretty joyless."
‑ Keith Phipps, AV Club
"The even numbers don't favor the Scary Movie franchise. Inspiration ran dry for the Wayans Brothers in No. 2; now successors David Zucker & Co suffer gag fatigue following up their moderately improving efforts on the third installment."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
"A lazy little product of mediocrity that will be woefully outdated in the next year..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"In a quarter of a century who's even going to remember that Tom Cruise went on Oprah's show and made an ass of himself?"
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"Well, it's better than Scary Movie 3: Honey, I Sunk the Franchise."
‑ Kevin A. Ranson,
"The jokes miss more than they hit, but there are a lot of them, and when they work, it's gold."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, Village Voice
"Scary Movie 4 is the second to be directed by Airplane! and The Naked Gun's David Zucker and possibly the funniest one yet."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"High production values and seemingly endless celebrity cameos only moderately elevate the scattershot satire of the Scary Movie franchise."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"A low-brow comedy chock full of cheap laughs."
‑ Kam Williams, Richmond Post
"A film with more chuckles then guffaws, hopefully the producers will settle on better movies to make fun of next time around."
‑ Michael A. Smith, Nolan's Pop Culture Review
