    Luckily, folks like Snoop and good sports like Sheen and, yes, Lohan, break up the monotony. Until, like an undead beastie, the boredom and dumb jokes come roaring back. show more

    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    This latest installment of the horror movie spoof franchise is mainly notable for its Charlie Sheen/Lindsay Lohan cameos. show more

    Scary Movie 5 is so massively un-enjoyable, a hate crime against cinema, a ringing indictment of the depths commercialism will go to in search of the lowest common denominator. show more

    Kyle Smith New York Post

    This is a horror movie that’s really a supposed comedy; she’s (Lohan) a supposed comedy actress who’s actually scary. show more

    Not that there’s all manner of comedy craftsmanship demanding study here, but the movie does seem to be a funny jumble of contradictory impulses. show more

    Scary Movie 5 comes up short in every way imaginable. show more

    Kim Newman Empire

    Lacking a single honest laugh, this is shoddy by comparison with the other Scary Movie sequels… which throws it in a pit with Transylmania, Breaking Wind and Stan Helsing. show more

    Neil Smith Total Film

    That every jibe lands woefully wide is no surprise, though we’ll give leading lady Ashley Tisdale credit for giving her all to a film that mercifully won’t be around long enough to do any lasting damage to her post-High School Musical career. show more

    SM5 tanked opening weekend, which may toll the knell for this property. show more

    Somehow, it actually looks cheaper than "Paranormal Activity." It's less funny, too. show more

    It\'s a Bit Torrent movie, not even a DVD movie... if you know what mean..

    Nothing funny about the movie! The only thing scary about the movie! Very disappointing!

    I took my wife and son to see iron man 3. But the showing was sold out and next was 1 hour away. So we decided to see scary 5. We loved the others. So I paid $33.00 for 3 tickets and $18.50 for popcorn sodas. For a total $ 51.50 to see the worst movie ever. Not one funny part at all. I want a refund

    I agree with most of the comments as it is not as good as the past ones. A little slow at times, but there were some parodies that I thought were so funny.

    A huge dissapointment. Faris was smart not to be in this installment. Scripting was terrible. Even the opening was weak compared to the others. There were only 3 others in the theatre and maybe 3 laughs during the entire movie!

    This is, by far, the worst movie I have ever seen! Took my children, ages 12, 14 and 17 to see it yesterday and I was embarrassed to be watching it with them for the idiotic sexual scenes that, even for a movie with no plot, didn\'t make any sense and were just embarrassing. That other viewers rated it Four Stars makes me wonder what kind of society we live in. For me and my kids, it gets four 0\'s and four thumbs down! What are the loons in California thinking??

    A haunted house is way better.
