Scary Movie 4 (2006) was originally supposed to spoof superhero movies. Later, the studio released Superhero Movie (2008) as a spin-off of the "Scary Movie" franchise. The studio planned another spin-off, under the title "Sci-Fi Movie," but dropped it. See more »
As Tom walks out on the porch you can see a vase with some sticks in it in the background. The sticks' positions differ between the shots. See more »
I went into this film a little hesitantly...How can there possibly be a fourth Scary Movie that still keeps its humour? Well, it was (half) possible. Although the overall structure isn't as tight as the other three, the jokes are often still 'fresh' and there's a lot of slapstick, which, although predictable, is still funny! Anna Faris (Cindi), as always, is still on top form, as is Regina Hall (Brenda) and together, they deliver some fantastic comedy.
If you're looking for a new, original comedy, perhaps this isn't for you. However, if you're a fan of Scary Movie 1, 2 and 3, then how could you boycott this one?! Go for it, even if it's only 80 minutes for a laff and a haff!
