Most of the critics seemed to have hated this movie.
Most of the critics probably hated the original, too. But again,
maybe, Iím too easily amused, or maybe itís just that Iím
expecting to get what Iím paying for, and for that I can usually
seem to enjoy a movie more than the average critic. Sure, sometimes
I get surprised, sometimes the end movie doesnít live up to even
half the hype the film had gotten, and sometimes the movie just ends
up totally sucking, but I can find humor in most things and for
"Scary Movie 2", well, I found humor in most things, all
except the basketball sequence. I got exactly what I expected and
that left me with a great movie-going experience.
Scary Movie 2
A Movie Review
"Scary Movie 2" opens with us getting to see Hell
House. In Hell House weíve got a girl possessed, much like
"The Exorcist," and we are quickly reminded that Scary
Movie is about poking fun at other movies. The opening scene gives
us a spinning head, a girl peeing enough to refill the oceans, and a
great vomit scene. And the movie takes on a funny journey from
The underlying story for "Scary Movie 2" is that the
college professor tricks six students to spend the weekend in a
haunted house. The professor and his assistant want the kids to
bring out the ghosts so that they can document life after death. You
can figure that for the good professor, well, things donít go that
well, and what we get is sight gag after sound gag after drug gag
after boob gag Ė just what you want and expect.
Multiple movies get poked at, included "Mission: Impossible
2," complete with doves, "Charlieís Angels,"
complete with slow, flying through the air scenes, and tattoos on
friendís backs ala "Dude, Whereís My Car?" You also
get poking fun at Monicaís blue dress, The Weakest Link, and a
foul-mouthed parrot. Who doesnít like a foul-mouthed parrot?
Going into the movie any more deeply is like trying to analyze,
well, the original "Scary Movie." It is just something
that doesnít need to be done. All you really need to know is that
in paying your money for "Scary Movie 2" you will get
exactly what you expect. If you hated the first one and havenít
had a brain transplant since, stay away, but if you were one of the
millions of folks who laughed your ass off, well, "Scary Movie
2" just continues the laughs where they left off. Donít try
to analyze it, just enjoy the humor for what it is and move on. Itís
4 stars out of 5 for "Scary Movie 2."
Thatís it for this one! Iím The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
