Funny Movies...But They Fall Short!

"Scary Movie 2 did not live up to all its hipe. I have 2 major complaints with this movie, keeping in mind that I loved the original. First, the length of the movie, which is a very short 74 minutes (approximately). I couldn't believe it was over so soon. When I watched the deleted scenes, most of them could have been left in the movie and most were funnier than what was in the movie. My second problem follows those lines. The movie was not all that funny. The first 15 minutes are absolutely great but it's all down hill from there. Of course there are a few more laughable scenes (espically those with the deformed hand). Most of the supposed comedy later in the movie is sexual humor but very dry at that. Overall, I would recommend you to rent Scary Movie 2 before buying it because you might be disappointed, even if you liked the original Scary Movie. If they make another one, I hope they read some of these comments. Senseless is an alright movie. I didn't care for it as much as Scary Movie 2 but it has its laughable parts. Marlon Wayans plays a struggling college student working several jobs to make ends meet. He's also trying to win an entry-level job at a Wall Street firm. In order to make a few extra bucks, he agrees to be a medical test subject and takes a drug that is supposed to amplify all of his senses. Sure enough, the results of the drug are humerous and it is played well. Though, the writing falls short in comedy; even with David Spade as Wayans's enemy, the movie is never more than sporadically funny."
