This movie is very much like Scary Movie. Either you laugh at all the silliness and jokes at other movies' expense, or you sit there frustrated thinking it is far too stupid to be funny. Remember, this movie was meant to be a joke!
That aside, there are hundreds of references to other films, some subtle, most not. There is a take on Grease's "Greased Lightning" which had me rolling in my seat, and at one point, Chucky makes a cameo appearance. This movie had a lot of stupid moments, but I would have to say it works as a whole. You have to be prepared for yet-another farcical Scream parody, if you go in expecting the finely-tuned humour of Billy Crystal or Woody Allen, you will be sorely disappointed.
Watch the background for many, many film references. The obvious slapstick gags sometimes overshadow the more humourous background references, some of which actually give this film second viewing possibilities. You will definitely not see all of the jokes this movie has to offer in one viewing (of course, many of you will not be able to stomach watching it a second time).
As with any parody, many of the jokes are predictable and somewhat lame. There are a lot of scatological references (expected), even some scenes pretty well ripped-off from Scary Movie (the entire first sequence), but there are some original bits which tip the scale in it's favour.
I gave it a 6 which is probably very generous, however I went in expecting a childish display of visual gags and got exactly what I expected. I think it was the "Greased Lightning" bit which pushed this from a 5 to a 6, it is one of those memorable moments in a comedy which when you think back on, always seems to make you chuckle.
