Lets be honest the Scary Movie franchise was good for the first 2 and the third was tolerable for having such A list stars and a good mix of old style Airplane! humor. However now we’re up to Scary Movie 5 that is trying hard to reboot the series but comes up short. The main issue with this film is that it has to shoehorn a horror film in as the main parody plot device, this time the target was Paranormal Activity. This whole franchise was founded on mocking 90s horror and even the whole horror genre is now stale thanks to crap like Paranormal Activity or Toture Porn directed by one note hack himself James Wan. The point is when the basis is built on shaky schlock the parody has to over compensate to the point of sheer cartoony sticky gags. Honestly had this not been a Scary Movie film but a straight up new parody film, the story might have worked a tad bit better if it wasn’t trying to overcompensate so much with rapid fire prat falls and jokes that mostly fall totally flat.
