Very funny but eventually tiring satire of the teenage horror film genre; the Wayans brothers have produced their most financially successful comedy yet with this film that parodies the Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer films, among others, with biting sarcasm. Some of the jokes really work, some of them really don’t, but it is thanks to a very funny performance by Anna Faris (standing in for the Jennifer Love Hewitts and Neve Campbells of the world) that makes it worth watching.
