I loved the movie. It was scary and fun. I loved the comedy. M. Night took some advice from Jaws by having comedy mixed in with the scariest parts. It is a classic in my book, and is probably the most fun I have had at the theater this year. It is the most scared I have ever been in the theater. I thought it was great that you actually cared about all of the characters. It is a 10 out of 10. Go see it, because you will love it. I will see it again soon.
