The Scary Movie franchise has gone Police Academy on us. It’s the same format, which is fun, but something is missing. It’s tried to pop in a few references there but it doesn’t cut it the way the others do (admittedly, there have been 4 of them already).
If you’re a diehard fan, then you will love more of the same but I was a little disappointed that the two headliners Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan were only present for a very short time. Like a really short time! However, I did like their performances and felt that they were quite the pair to take the mickey.
That said, Rex and Tisdale as the gorgeous couple under the spell of the paranormal did a good job with the material they had. It follows their journey in their somewhat haunted house with loads of references to our other favourite movies and Ben Cornish as our favourite Leonardo Di Caprio from Inception is a really good choice. I searched everywhere to see if these guys were related and they turned up as number 17 and 18 on IMDBs list of look-alikes. Check it out and I am sure you’ll find some others in there that you thought were the one person!
Make sure you stay until the credits of this movie because the bloopers are truly the funniest part of the film! You can tell they had fun and that a lot of it was left on the cutting room floor, I wonder if they chose the best bits in the end?
Scary Movie is scarily unfunny, but the diehard fans might disagree. In cinemas now.
