A college professor sets out to prove the existence of an afterlife. He promises some of his students an automatic "A" if they will spend the weekend at a haunted house. They soon discover they're in store for a wild weekend when the ghost comes out to play.
Comedy Horror - It's a very silly, stupid, gross and sexually explicit movie that's
designed to appeal mainly to young males. Adults should avoid this
movie at all costs :-) If you saw the first one, this one's more of
PROFANITY: Non-stop extremely strong profanity throughout. SEX/NUDITY: Very strong and graphic sexual content, plus some male nudity. VIOLENCE: Minor stuff played for laughs. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some marijuana smoking shown. ACTION: No true action, but lots of activity to keep the pace fast. COMEDY: Lots of laughs, if you like this type of silly, gross humor.

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic
Review Average "Unfortunately, the elements of Scary Movie 2 that
work are dwarfed by those that fail. The picture is characterized by long
laugh-less stretches - death to a film virtually devoid of plot and
Review Poor "Gone is the surprise, the laughter of disbelief that made
"Scary Movie" such a vacation from civility. In its place is a
procession of whoppers that thud to the floor with a metronome's regularity,
making 75 minutes feel like a life sentence."

Review Average "Parodies are always a hit-or-miss affairs: The trick is to
keep lobbing those gags so fast and furious that viewers forget the ones that
miss the mark. Given their track record, the prospect of further SCARY Wayans
sequels isn't scary at all.''

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
We were only able to collect 35 moviegoer opinions. This age group simply will not fill out our questionnaires.
The teens that would actually fill out our questionnaire indicated that they LOVED "Scary Movie 2" since a very large percentage rated it "Fantastic." As usual, there were some who didn't care much for it, but no one hated it.
The other age groups had so few opinions they probably aren't too helpful. Surprisingly the few adults actually gave the movie very high marks.
Publisher Comments: (before opinions collected)
If you liked the first Scary Movie, you'll probably enjoy this one. It's simply more of the same silly, stupid, gross jokes. I have to admit, even though this certainly isn't the type of movie I generally like, I did find some enjoyment in this teen male comedy. It try's a lot of jokes and quite a few of them are actually funny, even to a non-teen like me.
