Comedy - YA, Scary Movie

Scary Movie 5 (2013)

Released 2013 Rating (UK) 15
Source of story A tenuous relationship with the previous movies in the franchise
Writer/s Script David Zucker, Pat Proft
Director Malcolm D Lee, David Zucker
Starring Ashley Tisdale, Simon Rex, Gracie Whitton, Snoop Dogg, Shad Moss, Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan, Jerry O’Connell
Elevator Pitch The franchise continues to spoof current movies (of 2013) so the plot involves a couple who are looking after feral chldren in a house which is subject to psychic events while they are videoing everything with a hand held camera. Meanwhile the husband is working in ape intelligence, the apes are smarter than he is and the wife becomes a ballerina in a version of Swan Lake.
Content People lose limbs in a cabin in the woods, frantic events take place in the house, the wife becomes involved in a lesbian affair at the ballet school, the apes throw excrement. Quite a number of poor jokes. No nudity but some symbolism of lesbian sex.
A View Thankfully a very short film, and so far for me the least bad of the franchise I have seen. At least there is some continuity and Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan only appear before the opening titles. I admit to laughing a couple of times but I was a bit concerned that children were involved in what is quite a vulgar presentation.
