Another way it fails is being a spoof movie in 2016 because this is one that also focuses on pop culture references and there are so many godawful ones here. We get so many topical references like Kim Kardashian's "scandalous" photoshoot, Whiplash, The Weekend, Bill Cosby, Magic Mike, Osama Bin Laden (The most topical of them all.), Black Lives Matter and even a reference to a Vine meme. Scary Movie may have had moments that haven't stood the test of time, but at least the things they were satirizing were relevant at the time. The majority of these references were dated on arrival. They even make references to random movies just because like The Book of Eli, the show Empire and movies with Cuba Gooding Jr. and I call these references because that's what they are. They aren't jokes, they are just references to things that exist.
Then there's the gross-out which is also quite frequent with stuff like a disgusting looking bellybutton, shit jokes and an unrealistically long prosthetic cock. It even fails at making its gross-out gross as I was just rolling my eyes at them more than anything. Let's also not forget how predictable some of these jokes are. At the very beginning there was this joke where the lead actress was trying to open a door and I kept saying to myself out loud "It's a pull door, it's a pull door, it's a pull door, it's a pull door."
Then there's this one character that I hated and that was this white girl character that acts like she's black. I loathed every moment she was in and I just wanted something bad to happen to her. It never happened. Nothing cathartic happened to her. No slapstick, no misery or her being put out of her misery for that matter. All that happened was her getting rewarded with countless sex throughout the whole thing.
And another thing, I don't think I've ever seen a movie that went so out of its way to offend everyone, but does it in the worst way. Not only does it go for the cheapest stereotypes possible, but it also manages to insult the intelligence of everyone that's watching and pretty much makes every character look like idiots. Even though I wish more comedies would take risks these days instead of playing it safe, this is not the way to do it.
There were even a couple things that happened to me while watching this. There were at least a couple moments where I paused the fucker out of disbelief. I just couldn't believe what was just said. I was that shocked by those moments. Then there was another moment which led me to pause the movie. See, the TV was on in the background and when I noticed that a classic episode of The Simpsons was on, I paused this abortion immediately to take a break and watch something that's actually funny. Also in case you're wondering the episode was Homer Goes to College.
I guess this isn't really a positive, but riffing my way through this movie did help me get through it at times. These are just a few of these quips I made.
"Ooh, I wish I could find a man the size of this to satisfy me... This shit better be gluten-free."
It's not. Please die.
"Who wrote this, a third grader?"
*Raises finger* Nah, too easy.
"If it wasn't for Denzel Washington, Flight would've been a fucking Soul Plane!"
Don't reference movies that are probably funnier than you.
Other than that, this movie didn't really give me much. As far as spoof movies go, this is one of the worst ones I've ever seen. I even feel like I'm being to generous with my rating and feel like it deserves a 1/10, but I still think it had a few too many OK/decent jokes for me to justify that rating. It's still an abomination though and is the epitome of what is wrong with spoofs nowadays.
