Horrible, I hated it!!!
26 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of the worst films I can say I have ever seen in my lifetime!!!

The spoofs were corny and stupid and the movie was like an hour long.

The movie is like an hour of hell.

I hope they never make a movie this bad again!!!

I also would like to see a really good spoof movie in the future... i really enjoyed scary movie 1 and 2.

One way to solve the problem is to get the Wayans bros. back into spoofing too.

Overall .5 out of 10 (yes .5)

get ready for a horrible ride of spoofs!!
