Stupid, But Not As Much As The Films It's Parodying
Yes, this film dumb. Yes, it has many flaws. And yes, Cedric the Entertainer is annoying as hell in it. So, you may be wondering why exactly I'm giving it 10 stars? Because it succeeded at what it was trying to do. It was so nice to see the Paranormal Activity series (which was never scary to begin with, in my opinion) taken to the simple joke of "If they were black, this film would have ended in two minutes."
Sure, the reason they use keep them in the house is a poor one to say the least, but it kept me laughing pretty much the whole way through, save a few dry spots where the actors started to try too hard. Just be glad it was done the Wayans and not Seltzerberg.
