Trivia

According to Tori Spelling, her character, Alex Monday, was originally one of the leads. However, after refusing to do a scene where she had to be topless, Dimension Studios cut her out of more than half the movie. After that, her role was simply known as a "cameo", even though she was originally in 3/4 of the film. See more »

Goofs

When Alex chases "Huey", he throws furniture at her and then drops a chandelier on her. A dummy of her can briefly be seen before the chandelier smashes into her. See more »

No Mercy. No Shame. No...Plot?
4 July 2001 | by (CT) – See all my reviews

Despite the grotesque humor of the first Scary Movie, I have to say that I liked it, and was interested to see what the Wayans could conjure up for the sequel. As it turns out, not much. (*no spoilers*)

So these kids are put in a haunted house for a class. Okay. After that, the plot goes no where. It is never explained WHY they are there--the beginning is simply followed by random puns and gross humor. The jokes were good for a quick laugh, but they weren't much when you thought about it later. And I found myself revisiting the same jokes that were used in the first Scary Movie far too frequently. The fact that the cast is nearly the same didn't help.

I'll give them one thing--the opening sequence was pretty funny. There were new actors involved (James Woods, Natasha Lyonne, etc.), and some great spoofs on the Exorcist. But when it came right down to it, the movie lacked a good plot, decent actors (Tori Spelling? come on), and most of all, a healthy amount of humor for what was advertised. I'm glad I knew the guy at the ticket counter and got in for free--my $8.50 will go to better use.
