2.0 out of 5 stars The other version of Scary MoVie, August 23, 2013
This review is from: 30 Nights Of Paranormal Activity With The Devil Inside The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (Amazon Instant Video)
Someone was saying they thought this movie was way better than Scary MoVie (5) so I figured I would check it out as Scary Movie 5 I thought had decent bits, but still came off as the worst in the series. This one here had such potential with the very opening scene of a skittles parody. I had seen that on Youtube before, but I thought if that is the opening scene, what's to follow will be awesome. Unfortunately, it wasn't. After about the first 30 minutes, the funnier stuff just started going down hill. There is a couple of laughs, for me particularity the urination scene, but then the rest of the jokes where just typical stupid slap stick PG 13 gags mixed in with a whole heap of WTF moments that borderlined on slight humorous to just plain dumb.

Will we ever see the likes of a truly great parody film like those of the past, from Jim Abraham and the Zucker Brothers or the genius of Mel Brooks? Or do we just accept that only one those guys is still making parody films, and sitting back letting someone else do most of the work? When will parody films shine bright again? I have not given up all hope. But this movie can only be described as the typical ones of late not by the creators of all the "(insert title here) movie" apart from the Scary Movie franchise. It's better than the "(insert title here) Movie" but does not hold a candle to classics like Airplane, Spaceballs, Hot Shots, Naked Gun etc..
