No spoof is left unturned in director and parody-meister David Zucker's SCARY MOVIE 4, the latest installment in the popular horror-cum-humor series. Among several returnees from previous films, Anna Faris reprises her role as Cindy Campbell, the eternally unlucky and hilariously clumsy heroine. In a send-up of 2004's THE GRUDGE, Campbell is assigned as full-time nurse to a mysterious old lady in a house haunted by the ghost of a small boy. In a takeoff of 2005's WAR OF THE WORLDS, next door lives Tom Ryan (Craig Bierko), a divorced dock worker somewhat in charge of his two kids, who is called into action as Alien TriPods (remove the "Tr" for a hint at the inspiration for their invention) seek to destroy Earth. The two meet and quickly fall in love. Joined by Cindy's ever-present sidekick, the flirtatious Brenda Meeks (Regina Hall), the protagonists must save the planet from aliens and solve the mystery of the ghostly boy. One of the stops along the way includes a sharp lampooning of THE VILLAGE, complete with appearances from SCARY MOVIE veterans Carmen Electra and Chris Elliot, and other cinematic spoofs, including BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN, MILLION DOLLAR BABY, and SAW. The satirical wit extends beyond the movies, containing personal jabs both self-inflicted (Charlie Sheen, Shaquille O'Neal, and Dr. Phil) and not (Mike Tyson, Michael Jackson, and George W. Bush). Ultimately, there is more than enough funniness to sate the SCARY MOVIE or slapstick comedy fan's appetite.

I have seen all the scary movie, movies. I saw this one in theaters a while back, it wasn't so funny. At least it wasn't as vulgar as the first two. This one is meant for teens, and people who hve seen the movies, "The Village", "Saw 2", "The Grudge", "Brokeback Mountain", and "War of the worlds". It has some funny moments, but I don't think the Unrated Version would be too bad considering that the movie is only PG-13, and most Unrated PG-13 movies aren't that bad. I think that this movie could have been much funnier if they didn't try to make it gross humor. Some people liked this movie but I was dissapointed. I reccomend renting it first and if you like the movie buy it, that's all. It isn't too, too bad for pre- teens, or teens, but parents might want to watch it first before letting the little ones seeing this movie.
we all know it not adapt for a kid but for an adult go for it it's a comedy it'll make u laugh a few times. It was not as funny as past movies but if your following it since the first scary movie i would wacth it but i wouldn't but it again
I have seen the first 3 of the Scary movie series and have to say that 4 was also very funny. It spoofs alot of other movies very well. My husband and my teenaged son also loved it. Good family night movie if you have teenagers and everyone just wants to laugh and not be to serious that night.
This has to be one of the funniest sequels yet. It kept me well entertained. It offered a delightful change, in the sense, that despite the seriousness of the world around us, you're able to sit back, relax, and laugh yourself silly, for an hour and a half, and not worry about anything else. I wish all movies could make me feel as good as this one did. I wait in anticipation, for Scary Movie 5. Please tell me they're making one.
