If you've seen Scary Movie 3 then you pretty much know what to expect in this fourth installment. Directed by David Zucker (of “Airplane!” and “Naked Gun” fame) and scripted by Craig Mazin and Jim Abrahams, meaning the Wayans Brothers (directors of Scary Movie 1 & 2) are now a distant memory. The film is your basic "spoof" film with parodies of "The Grudge", "War of the Worlds", "Saw", "The Village", and not so scary movies "Million Dollar Baby", and "Brokeback Mountain". If you liked any of the other Scay Movie films (most importantly 3) then this one should be enjoyable for you, if not you will probably just want to skip it altogether. Mostly a lot of chuckels with some good laughs, the humor tends to vary from sight gags to the overuse of "Gross-out" humor. The film is short too, at just over an hour long (80 minutes I think.) I won't go into any details about my favorite parts because it wouldn't leave much to see if you watch it.
However, I will allow two spoilers, There is a very speacil appearence of Scott DeVos in the film, otherwise know as Zoltar. Also the only "Scary" part of Scary Movie 4 is seeing Leslie Nielsen's naked butt (which gets an amazing amount of screen time) fortunately the film makes up for that by showing off Carmen Electra's squisheys in a nice corset.
Anyway, Scary Movie 4 contains mostly stuff you've seen before and at only 80 Minutes long I wouldn't reccomend paying full admission. So if you're thinking about seeing it, I say wait for an early bird speacil or for home rental. And that's my 2 cents.
I give Scary Movie 4 - two and a half Slinus heads.

"Oh Adult Swim! Why! We loved each other once. But now . . . Now you give me Saved by the bell!?!? I thought we had something together! Something Speacil and wonderful. A place full of wonderful shows, old and new. Shows with brilliant minds and fresh talent. Now, what once was a viewing pleasure of midnight on [AS] now feels like 7AM on TBS. If I wanted to watch a bunch of no talent retarted kids with horrid acting skills I would tune in on Friday nights and watch Tommy and Tara. Now what once was a television exploding with beautiful comedy and action animation has been dulled with an eire and deafening sound of silence as my thumb removes it's self from the power button on my remote control. Now sitting alone in my cold dark room, staring at my dark, black, icey television screen. I can almost feel the warm loving rays of entertaing animation radiation that once embraced my body on a nightly basis, now just a memory, still linger in the air. Now all I have left is this DARK, HEARTLESS, ROOM. Cold and Alone! What happened to you Adult Swim? I'm not sure if I can ever forgive you. I not sure if things will ever be the same ... for you .... for us. I guess all I can do now is pray. And hope. And whenever midnight rolls along I can always put in a Futurama DVD or play some strip solitare and try and wait out what may be the most agonizing 30 minutes of my life. With every second that will pass, my heart will pound harder. With every minute that will pass, my sweat will grow colder. And somewhere between insainity and the festering bowels of my Adult Swim free mind will be the haunting laughter of Screech lauging at my torment! Well nuts to you Dustin Diamond, there's still a chance this could all be a cruel and horrible joke gone wrong! . . . But I'm only kidding myself. The end is near . . . for quality entertainment on [AS], it all starts with one show and I'm afraid Adult Swim will not be saved by the bell. . . . Oh and congradulations on making the cover of Animation Magazine, very nice!"

Overall, if you like stupid movies then you'll like the Benchwarmers. And that's my 2 cents.
I give it 3 and half Slinus heads.
