I went in to this movie not expecting much, buy at least hoped it would spoof horror movies... it doesn't. Most of the movie was wasted on slapstick humor that just wasn't funny... oh wow he got hit with a frying pan.... how original. Don't spend a penny on this movie... we could hear the people around us talk about walking out and thought about it too!!!! It was unoriginal and god awful...

Being a HUGE fan of the Scary Movies of years past, I was expecting side splitting parody at its finest.
The movie got a running go a couple of times and then just kinda fizzled.
Frankly, I think that i was holding this addition to the series to a higher standard of parodic, slapstick comedy based upon my previous experience with the "Scary Movie" franchise. I still watch the older ones and laugh hysterically. Not really excited about seeing this one for a second, third or thirtieth time.
Also, I believe that it may be an "age thing". The younger people in the audience (you don't know HOW BAD I HATE saying that phrase) were laughing like a did watching e previous installments. Eh....maybe I'm just getting old...

Not worth the price of the movie ticket... more of a Redbox price. The other Scary Movies are funnier and better played out.
Really thought it would be better, first disappointment... killing off Charlie thought there would of been more of his acting in the film. Maybe he would of made the movie better.. Who knows but I would not waste the money...

I went expecting to see the same level of humor as 3 and 4, but it fell way short. Except for a couple of scenes that had me chuckling, the movie was a big let-down.

If you can't guess from the the title this movie was horrible. I laughed a total of 4 times and I'm a pretty cheesy person. This franchise has just gone down hill without the Wayans Brothers. It was a miserable experience with an absolutely disconnected story line. I was not expecting a well put together comedy. I get the point and purpose of the movie series. I'm a huge fan of the first three. But Scary Movie 5 and its writers, actors, and producers need to learn what made the first movies so much fun. I'm still trying to figure out why Black Swan was considered "scary." Please don't waste your time and money. If so, you've been warned.
