Consensus: Sure to inspire a few chuckles, but not enough to compensate for the recycled material from its predecessors.

Watch (sober) at your peril.

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.

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.

What makes it to the screen feels pretty joyless.

Dennis Harvey

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.

Felix Vasquez Jr.
Cinema Crazed

A lazy little product of mediocrity that will be woefully outdated in the next year...

The jokes miss more than they hit, but there are a lot of them, and when they work, it's gold.

Scary Movie 4 is the second to be directed by Airplane! and The Naked Gun's David Zucker and possibly the funniest one yet.

Cole Smithey

High production values and seemingly endless celebrity cameos only moderately elevate the scattershot satire of the Scary Movie franchise.

Scary Movie 4 was a pathetic film. The storyline never matters in these movies, but this was not a good spoof, and mostly because they are just tryig too hard… More

Not anything monumental, but the best of the Scary Movie series. Grade: C
