Overview

Spoof series torch-bearer and Airplane! mastermind David Zucker steps back into the captain's chair for yet another round of cinematic shenanigans in the latest installment of the Scary Movie franchise, this time mocking such frightful blockbusters as Saw, War of the Worlds, The Village, and The Grudge. An alien invasion threatens to wipe out the entire human race, but not if Cindy Campbell (Anna Faris) and her nymphomaniac pal, Brenda Meeks (Regina Hall), have any say in the matter. With the clock counting down for all of humankind and the extraterrestrial invasion about to begin, the fearless but slightly dunderheaded heroines are joined by a series of celebrity guests including Dr. Phil, Carmen Electra, Chris Elliott, Shaquille O'Neal, and, of course, Leslie Nielsen in ensuring that the planet remains free of the alien menace and prepared for yet another installment in the over-the-top, pop-culture-deflating satire series. Although two versions of this film officially exist (a PG-13 one and an "Unrated and Uncensored" one -- evidently they skipped the R version), the unrated cut only reportedly features about three extra minutes of screen time, devoted to jiggling and bouncing breast implants.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
For the fourth installment of the Scary Movie franchise, the reins were handed over to the famed Zucker Bros., who just so happen to pull off a more consistently funny exercise in absurdist humor than their previous so-so third entry. Once again, the duo play their hand with far less vulgarity and the movie is more teen-friendly than the first two entries, which is very much a part of why the film hit so big (40 million dollars on opening weekend is indeed a large opening for any kind of comedy). For the most part, their lampooning works across the board, with shot-for-shot recreations of blockbusters gone by setting the scene for predictably wild sight gags and witty wordplay. With gags hitting the audience at least every two minutes, the flick manages to keep its steam going right up until its riotous finale, featuring a parody of Tom Cruise and Oprah that really shouldn't work, but does, thanks to the filmmakers' willingness to push the gags to the point of ridiculous lunacy. Best intended for audiences not afraid to work out their funny bones for a breezy hour and a half, Scary Movie 4 is an infectious and infantile horror romp that doesn't stop, which for its target audience, is just what the doctor ordered.
