Megan Voorhees is possessed and two priests, Father McFeely and Father Harris, must drive the demon out, but the exorcism doesnt go as planned. A year later, survivors Cindy Campbell, Ray Wilkins, and Shorty and Brenda Meeks, are at college, trying to forget the incidents that occurred last Halloween. Cindy is falling for Buddy, who loves to give wedgies, and Ray is still confused about his sexuality. Professor Oldman and his paralyzed assistant, Dwight, have decided to do a research study at Hell House, the house where the bad exorcism took place, and disguise it as a sleep disorder study. Chaos starts as soon as Cindy arrives and meets the creepy caretaker with the funny hand. But the house has some deep dark secrets that the group has to solve, even if they are scary or disgusting.

Memo to the Wayans Brothers: That scraping sound you're hearing? It's thebottom of the barrel. Actually, I'm sure you've been hearing that sound fora year now, so it's time to give it up.I'm not convinced that the Wayans Brothers have truly understood parodysince the fleetingly amusing "Don't Be a Menace..." A good first rule ofparody, you see, is that you shouldn't parody something that was already aparody to begin with. The original Scary Movie broke that rule, mocking thealready self-referential Scream movies. And the people loved Scary Movieandfor despite being as memorable as glass of water, it still had its moments.A good second rule for parody is not to mock things that were alreadyhorrible, trashy bombs to begin with. Well, Scary Movie 2 is a mock-up ofthe "recent" slate of "haunted house" movies. But nobody liked House ofHaunted Hill or The Haunting. They were just bad movies. But in thisdistinctly sorry sequel, the Wayans Brothers manage to make the awful evenworse. There aren't more than half a dozen chuckles in the movie and withthe failed jokes coming pell-mell, this movie becomes painful to sitthrough.The movie opens with a brief play on The Exorcist with James Woods in theMax von Sydow role. Marlon Brando was originally going to play the part.ButWoods is fine. Certainly better than anything else in the movie. But thatscene is over quickly. It's a year after the first Scary Movie and Shorty(Marlon Wayans), Ray (Shawn Wayans), and Cindy (Anna Faris) are in college.There's a joke at the expense of Save the Last Dance that isn't so bad. Butthen the movie quickly goes into its "plot." A psychology professor (TimCurry) has assembled a group of students to go to a haunted house for somekind of study. The house has a knocker shaped like huge testicles. It isn'tfunny. And neither is anything inside the house.Once everybody is assembled we meet the two disabled characters that themovie will laugh at for the next hour. Chris Elliot plays Hanson, acaretaker with a stupid accent and one baby hand. And David Cross (of Mr.Show) plays Curry's double jointed assistant. Neither character is funny,but they're both plenty annoying. Rounding out the cast we have 90210 alumsTori Spelling and Kathleen Robertson. Neither has any background and theirlinks to the main plot and the characters from the first movie are tenuous.They're just there. As is Christopher Masterson, always reliable on Malcolmin the Middle, totally stranded by awful writing here. Night Court'sRichardMoll appears briefly as the least scary, least funny, least interestingvillain in the history of cinema (why'd they even bother?).The characters run around in circles and they make jokes that aren't funnyto begin with and get even worse with repetition. A pea soup barfingcontestin The Exorcist scene is only worth a chuckle at first and then after it'sgone on for a minute it's just mind-boggling. Or a trash-talking parrot. Iguess it's funny the first couple times, but by the time it does a "WeakestLink" joke, you realize that it's just past its expiration date. There's anamusing take on Hannibal. The Charlie's Angels joke is good for anotherchuckle. And... I'm trying to think of other positive moments. But it'sjusttoo tough.The film is badly directed by Keenan Ivory Wayans, but the editing might beits most embarrassing technical feature. What can you say about a moviethatruns 82 minutes and still feels like it's laden with too many pregnantpauses. The movie could have been much tighter. That wouldn't have made anyof the jokes funnier, but it would have cut ten minutes off themess.The other alternative is that the three editors were just working with whatthe actors gave them and they couldn't find any takes that were better.Every performance is awkward and the movie feels badly improvised. Youwatchthe actors and you can see them waiting for their next lines of dialogue orfor the next not-amusing prop to come into play. The best of the acting isgrating (Elliot and Cross), but Masterson, Spelling, both Wayans Brothers,Faris, and Regina Hall are frequently shockingly bad. I let Curry andRobertson off the hook because he is totally wasted, while she was alwaysmyfavorite 90210 girl and I firmly believe that given the right material, shecould probably act.When I saw the movie, nobody laughed. Sure, there were titters for thefirstfifteen minutes -- anticipatory good humor, if you will. But the main bodyof the movie, the haunted house scenes, played to total silence. Nobodyseemed grossed out. Nobody seemed offended. And certainly nobody seemedamused. Should have kept that "No Sequels" promise, boys. This one's a 1/10bomb.

I'll first admit that I absolutely hated the first "Scary Movie," I thoughtit was just plain gross and not funny at all, with the exception of a coupleof moments. So with the first film in mind I went in with very lowexpectations for "Scary Movie 2" and well, let's just say they weren't met. For reasons never explained, (probably because that meant the Wayansbrother might have to come up with an actual story) some of the cast membersare back in the sequel, whether they died or not is obviously not aproblem. Instead of spoofing horror movies, like in the first one, the sequel spoofsmany horror flicks, among them are "Hollow Man" and "The Haunting," but forwhat seems to be no reason, the Nike commercials, "Save The Last Dance" and"Charlie's Angels." But unlike the first film, in which the scenes at least seemed to gotogether, many scenes seem to be just poorly shot and put together in asloppy package that was quickly rushed to theaters so it could make a lot ofmoney like the first one did. Like I said before I didn't care at all for the first one, but this sequelis just plain terrible. I give it -** out of 4 stars.

I am ashamed to admit it, but this was funny. I am in my 30's, but I stillthought it was great. It is crude, base and lacking in any class, but funnyas heck. Talented cast and funny spoofs. The people that were critical ofthis movie need to lighten up. Cross and Elliot are beyond funny and KeenanIvory Wayans shows that he still has his finger on the pulse of what isfunny. Let me get this straight, people paid to see this so they could seethe trailer for "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back"? This was much funnier thanthat Kevin Smith piece of nonsense.

I watched the first one and absolutely loved it so I thought I'd givethe second one a go. I knew that it wasn't going to be as good as thefirst one but I wasn't disappointed. Faris' performance was yet againfunny and believable. I hadn't seen any of the films that they werespoofing so I didn't really know much about the story-line butnevertheless it was funny as! My favourite character was definitelyShorty (although I thought he died in the first one?!) but the guy withthe funny hand weirded me out... Overall I would say that Scary Movie 2is a funny film with a clever cast. Like the first one if you don'tlike the sexual/toilet humour, give this one a miss. I would give it8.5/10 and say that it is suitable for anyone 13+.
severin-3 (22 May 2013)
this is easily the worst movie IÂ´ve seen in decades, and believe me I had myshare. everytime you think it canÂ´t get any worse it runs an extra-mile toshow how degenerated "humour" can get. this is definetly not a question oftaste, itÂ´s one of character, and I sure donÂ´t want to sit next to a guy wholikes THAT. 85 minutes wasted on feces, vomit, urine etcetc...thanks,wayans.

Funny how a true way to really waste money, Funny more like why should ilaugh. Ive seen some bad comedy remakes of old movies from spyhard tomafia.I cant even state that the acting was even at the otch of O.K. in fact itseemed at times improv was used but in a unfunny manor. Me and fellowcolleges waited, ready to unload with laughter yet we watched that film asthough we where reading subtitles. There are some parts that do shine tothelight of funny its always good Chris elliot in a movie he has that oddballouttake that make you just giggle by looking at him. I was expecting morefrom the wayans brothers yet the only funny thing out there mouths was whenshawn wayans told his girlfriend " baby get my vasoline wheres myvasoline".The bird had no pressence there as if they through him in just to cut 20minutes of the movie cause they ran out of ideas. Overall would i see itagain only if someone had it on and i had nothing to do.

I didn't think this film was going to be this awful . Part 1 made funof slasher movies like "Scream" and "I Know What You Did Last Summer"but this time we get parodies from movies like The Exorcist and someHaunted House flicks. Even though I liked that they parodied a crappy movie like "TheHaunting" I was still disappointed and extremely offended by this. It'sjust the same jokes we got in the first one but grosser, lamer, andjust not funny anymore. This movie was just too much for me and I'mused to it at times but to see it again in a sequel not only makes itlook unoriginal but it also makes the people who wrote this look verylazy and dumb. Its like they came up with the idea to set the movie ina Haunted House and they decided to throw in some disgusting jokes andthat's it, the script is done.I couldn't wait til it was over because I couldn't stand anymore ofthis horrid and sexually perverse sequel.0 out of 10Rated R-Strong Sexual Gross Humor, Pervasive Language, Drug Use.
ikramerica (20 May 2013)
I thought the first one was really bad. It had funny parts, but was so allover the map and gross, I would never watch it again. With thatunderstanding, I WON'T SEE THIS ONE!Duh!All these people saying: I thought the first one was bad, but man, this isworse...Why in GOD'S name did you bother to go see it, and on opening night yet!Itnever ceases to amaze me the shear number of people who will see a badmovieknowing going in it will suck, and then complain aboutit.Spend your money on something else. By seeing this movie, YOU makeHollywood make them. I work there. I know.You vote with your dollars, not your opinions. Studios don't care what youthink, they just care if you pay. So, if the movie is bad, in the middle,ASK FOR YOUR MONEY BACK. Many theaters will actually refund the money, orat least exchange your ticket for another movie.I have done this twice. The Mod Squad was so boring I asked for my moneyback. They agreed and gave it to me! Another film I can't even recall wasso bad, I asked to exchange my ticket for a film that was just about tostart. I didn't just theater hop, because then the wrong movie getscredit.I asked them to void my ticket and give me a new one for the new movie.They did it, gladly.Why would they do this you ask? How much a theater pays to show the movieis determined AFTER the movie has been showing for a few weeks. Soundsstrange, I know, but theaters pay the bigger bucks only when they earn thebigger bucks. If you ask for a refund, this gives them ammo against thestudios, and the studios listen!But if you just complain here, well, the studios don't really care. Wordofmouth is not expected on these movies. It's a big first weekend, amediocresecond weekend, one good foreign weekend, and then to video. The onlyaffect you can have is NOT GIVING THEM THE GOOD OPENING.Only you can prevent Scary Movie 3, because, they are already inpre-production, and if this movie makes any money at all, SM3 will be outina year. That's a fact.

If you loved 'Scary Movie' you will probably only like 'Scary Movie 2'.If you hated the first film, you will hate this one even more. Onestupid sex related joke after another makes a film that is so much amatter of taste it is sort of impossible to review. The film spoofsfilms such as 'The Haunting', 'The Exorcist', 'Hollow Man', 'Hannibal',even 'Titanic' and a sports commercial (a pretty funny sequence). Someof them work, most of them don't, although I am ashamed to say that Iwas smiling pretty much.So if you are normally able to enjoy films like 'Hot Shots!', 'TheNaked Gun' and the original 'Scary Movie' you must be able to like thisone. Prepare for a little more sex and language though.
CanEHdian Pride (18 May 2013)
i am not a hoity-toity critic, I am an immature man who enjoys brainlesscomedy. Yes, it is brainless, but it is just plain not funny. It wasembarrassingly bad. I have nothing else to add, but I need a fourth line. Gorent "So I Married an Axe-Murderer" instead.
blacklaetherglove (18 May 2013)
I keep tuning in at about the scene where the girls all tear theirclothes off and change into different outfits. I think it was based onCharlies Angels or something.. Anyway, the end part that I have seentakes place in a generic dungeon, and there's a mad scientist doingsomething bad. People get electrocuted in that cartoony way where theirhair gets blown black, and their faces and covered in soot. In oneversion (it is censored in a few different ways), there is a scene thatshows the inside of one character's head, and there's a little dudegetting stoned inside. I liked that moment, only because it wasdifferent than every other time I had seen the movie. This is somethingyou tune into & keep watching because you have already seen every moviein HBO's current lineup. While the other Scary Movies parodycontemporary horror films, this one seems aimed more at the "YoungFrankenstein"s of the movie world: Mel Brook's vision of horror.Perhaps because I am in no way a Mel Brooks fan (I've tried....hatedthem all...), this movie is not something I have ever enjoyed.
Francisco Huerta (18 May 2013)
Let me first issue an apology:It's impossible not to watch this film with a couple of simple mindedfriends, in a full theatre, and not choke on your popcorn with laughter. Ifyou are, say, between 18 and 35, like stupid comedies, are in that specialmood, and don't care much about your self image, boy, this is the film foryou. I was looking to laugh, and I got a movie in which I couldn't stop laughing.So that means the movie works, right?Well. It's like a chiclet. At first it tastes great, but chew on it hard,and the taste is gone. First of all (the apology has ended, BTW), I am SUREI saw a censored version of the movie, since there was a huge gap betweenthe professors' death and the kids trying to get out of the haunted house.Second (and I cannot stress it enough), how come the directors are so keenin showing us the drug addict as the cool guy? I mean, kids are going towatch this movie one way or the other (rental, anyone?) and I can onlyimagine what they'll think when they see that the dopey guy even gets thegirl at the end. Do we really need a drug-glorifying culture nowadays?Sheesh... I have known friends who regularly use drugs, and they ended upisolated and alienated. Nothing at all what is shown on thefilms.The story, as it is to be expected, stinks. No continuity, jumps from sceneto scene, lots of jokes that simply don't work (the whole skeleton thing isstupid), and way too many counterculture references. Which will only help todate the thing. Which will make future viewing difficult or impossible.Which makes this movie appeal to future generation lessen alot.Which might not be a bad thing, after all.
TheShadow22 (16 May 2013)
I think many people who walked out of the theater after seeing Scary Movie2were a bit disappointed. It stars some of the same actors of the first,(Shorty and Cindy) and contains the same jokes as the first. But not likethe first. There were a few moments in the movie that were funny, butwhenit comes to the first movie...it's worse.
lawals (16 May 2013)
Obviously whoever was responsible for writing the Chinese Zodiac never sawthis year. I have come to know 2001 as year of the sequel. All Jokingaside, Scary Movie 2 was pretty bad. Sill as gross as the first, it had abad script. Still we can't obstruct other peoples' First Amendment rights. Need I say more?
MovieTycoon_7 (15 May 2013)
How low can you go. I understand the need to make money but i mean thismovie sucks. This movie is so bad. You wish you had not of seen it. me andmy friend still claim to not have seen it. And if anyone asks us, we willsay no, we haven't. And don't listen to anyone else because if they saysomething like, dont listen to the critics, well do. I wish Ihad.
dragonsmycat (15 May 2013)
Making spoofs is second nature now, where this film delivers is the wayin which it uses some very clever scenarios to produce some hystericalmoments. Films such as Haunted house and 13 Ghosts are brilliantlymimicked to the point where I would rather watch this than theoriginals. Where this differs to other spoof films is that it doesn'treally solely on 'gags'. There are some truly original moments whichwill have you holding your sides and are much funnier than some of thespoofs. If you liked American Pie and Airplane! Then I highly recommendthis movie as it pokes humour at the clichÃ© American scripts at at thetime. My favourite moment? A very awkward situation around the dinnertable!
Punk19 (13 May 2013)
Okay so they made this after that crappy first one. The only reason Imainly watched this anyways was because Tim Curry was in it. He evenacted horribly. This movie, although sometimes funny, didn't makesince. Oh a ghost is haunting a mansion and 6 young college people aredrafted in to lets say do an experiment. I'd say this is the stupidestmovie sequel in the history of movies. And that's taking it nicely.They never should of made these stupid Scary Movies. Heck they don'teven deserve the title. A Funny Movie or A Horrible Movie is more likeit. They even took stuff from other movies. Once again this movie andit's sequels don't deserve a place on the shelves.
ThrillRide89 (13 May 2013)
Warning: ****SPOILERS**** Don't read if you haven't seenit.I've seen this movie about 20 times and i never stop laughing at someofthe parts, especially when watching it with other people. sure its kindofweird that the characters from the first are suddenly alive, but thatswhatis so unrealistic,since the movie is so unrealistic its like anything canhappen. one of my favorite parts is the exorcist seen in the beginning, ithought the exorcist was a good movie and it creeped me out, but thismoviemade me see what could be funny in scary movies. i think they spoofed theexorcist seen really good, especially all that throwing up, which icrackedup in! and i thought that the actors did a better job on this one thanthefirst one, and some were really funny like Brenda and Shorty! the partwhenu see his brains on drugs was really funny. i cant wait until the 3rd onecomes out!
WALLACEKJ (11 May 2013)
I know everyone is entitled to their opinion and reading some of the otherreviews some of you really liked this film. But I must say except for averyfew scenes, this movie really is unwatchable. I laughed only a couple oftimes. The rest of the time I was just astonished that anyone making thisfilm thought any of the scenes they were doing were funny. It was justgross many times and some scenes went on too long. So do you self a favorand dont see this movie!
shaman4 (11 May 2013)
so far this movie has been universally panned, so i feel that someone maybeshould defend it. i usually hate "stupid" comedies that the masses seem toworship, but i love this movie. first of all, i'm a horror movie fan, sogetting some of the references tend to help. second of all, i'm also a fanof tim curry, david cross, and james woods so i appreciated their roles.but above all i thought the movie was funny as hell, i was entertained theentire time. i mean, why don't critics find this funny, is there some kindof prerequisite where if you're a critic you have to see yourself as being"above" some lowbrow or sick humor? anyway, if you're a fan of sick humor,horror films, the wayans brothers, or anyone in the cast, you will mostlikely enjoy this movie.
