I nearly wet myself in the first 15 minutes of this movie. This is HILARIOUS comedy. Much better than the first one, in my opinion.

"Scary Movie 2" is standard gross-out humor with a few original bits thrown in. That's not to say it isn't funny, but you have probably seen this kind of humor before in a hundred other movies.
The opening scene that parodies "The Exorcist" is hilarious and pretty much sets the tone for the rest of the movie. Other spoofs include "The Haunting," "What Lies Beneath," "Hollow Man," and "Charlie's Angels." The biggest problem with these latter movies is that it is hard to parody movies that weren't that good to begin with and still make it funny.
"Scary Movie 2," however, somehow manages to do this on a fairly constant basis, which is why I recommend it to fans of the emerging genre of juvenile R-rated humor. Oh, and by the way, the movie plays with an absolutely hilarious trailer for "American Pie 2" for those interested.

I went to see this movie without having even known it was being made. Only the first 10 minutes of the movie is reason enough to see it. Right away I could not stop laughing, I seriously thought I would pass out.
If you liked the first one, this one will make you wet your pants. Just thinking of this film makes me laugh now. SEE IT!!!!

One of the worst sequels I had ever sat though, which is not much of a shocker since the first "Scary Movie" wasn't funny either. (the first one had a few laughs, but it was also grossed)
In the first "Scary Movie," I had to scatch for laughs, In SM2, I had to scatch much deeper. In the second film, the gang is back and this time they ended up at a haunted manison. Grossed out toliet and sex jokes round out the movie.

This movie is horrible and not funny at all. All of the good scenes were on the commericals. The only thing funny about this movie is the exorcist parody with James Woods. All of the rest of the movie is crap and so boring. Stick with the original, this movie sucked.
Rating: ZERO stars

Well, to be honest, I hated the first one and only went to the sequel because it was playing at the right time. If you think this biases my review, then take it into account.
The first "Scary Movie" was an original parody, and I'll admit it was pretty funny at times. It made fun of mainstream slasher movies such as "Scream" and "I know what you did last summer". I can't stand the Wayans brothers, but they were really creative this time.
The sequel, however, was a really sad attempt at wringing every last cent out of the success of "Scary Movie". It was NOTHING like the first one except for the annoying gay jokes and bad acting. Rather than parody a couple cheesy slasher movies that everyone made fun of already, "Scary Movie 2" was a compilation of about 20 or 25 short parodies loosely tied together into some sort of plot.
The worst part is, in this one they didn't even parody HORROR movies! Among the list of movies I recognized (and I forgot or didn't recognize most of them I'm sure) were Hollow Man, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Titanic, and Charlie's Angels.
I had to sit through it, but hopefully I can save one of you the trouble. just... don't.
