This series is the best of the recent batch of movie spoofs, and is a master class in comedy if you compare it to the terrible Meet The Spartans, Date Movie and Epic Movie.
SCARY MOVIE 2000
This is the best of the Quadrilogy, that has many belly laughs and funny characters, Doofy being the best!
The film brilliantly lampoons Scream's opening sequence, and I know What You Did Last Summer. Most of the gags hit a bulls eye, but the ones that miss the mark don't really matter as you know there will be another joke any second.
One of the best spoof movies of the decade.
SCARY MOVIE 2 2001
The quick of the mark sequel, is not a patch on the first movie, in place's it seems desperate to get a laugh even using a swearing Parrot as a last resort.
Most of the Jokes miss the mark, but a few do score a bulls eye, the best being the James Woods Amityville/Excorcist gag at the start of the film.
Scary Movie 3 2003
The Zucker brother takes over the series, but it seems the brothers have lost there spark since Aireplane and The Naked Gun. This film is a slight improvement on the second film as it spoofs The Ring, Signs and even 8 Mile.
But it's nowhere as good as the first!
SCARY MOVIE 4 2005
Again the Zucker brothers Spoof recent horror movies, and this time the movie is even more scatter shot in it's approach. As it sets it's targets on SAW, War OF The Worlds, The Grudge and the Village. Some of the Jokes are desperate, but now and again you can see sparks of insparation. The Tom Cruse on the sofa gag has to be the best.
This is the second best film in the quadrilogy, but let's hope it's the last.
A mixed bag, but for this value for money, you can't really complain.
Well worth paying out for, for a few good Laughs.
