Scary Movie 5 is the fifth installment in the Scary Movie franchise, released in 2013. The film parodies various horror movies and pop culture references, making it a comedy-horror movie. Directed by Malcolm D. Lee, the film boasts of an ensemble cast that includes Simon Rex, Ashley Tisdale, Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan, and Mike Tyson.

The movie opens with a parody of the Paranormal Activity series, where a couple, Dan (Simon Rex) and Jody (Ashley Tisdale), set up cameras in their house after bringing home their newborn baby. Strange things start happening, and the couple realizes that their house is haunted. Along with the help of their friends, they try to solve the mystery of the ghostly activities.

The plot of Scary Movie 5 is divided into various subplots that are parodies of different horror movies. In one of the subplots, a group of teenagers accidentally summon a demonic spirit through a ouija board, which results in chaos and destruction. In another subplot, Jody's brother, who is a ballet dancer, gets involved in a performance of Swan Lake, which is a parody of the movie Black Swan.

The movie also takes a dig at pop culture references, with Charlie Sheen playing the role of himself, poking fun at his wild lifestyle. Lindsay Lohan makes a guest appearance in the film, where she plays a character that is clearly a parody of her own troubled past.

The humor in Scary Movie 5 is slapstick and relies heavily on crude jokes, sexual humor, and toilet humor. The parodies are not subtle, and some of the jokes may seem too obvious or over-the-top.

One of the highlights of the film is the presence of Mike Tyson, who appears in a cameo role. Tyson plays himself in a parody of The Help, where he shows up as a servant to Jody's family.

The film's soundtrack includes songs from various genres, with some of the tracks offering a comedic twist. The movie's score, composed by James L. Venable, is also noteworthy and adds to the film's overall comedic feel.

Scary Movie 5 does not pretend to be anything other than a comedy-horror film, and it succeeds in delivering what it promises. The film is a fun watch for those who enjoy slapstick humor and are looking for a light-hearted comedy that does not take itself too seriously.

In conclusion, Scary Movie 5 may not be for everyone, but it is a movie that delivers on its promise of crude humor and horror movie parodies. With an ensemble cast that includes Simon Rex, Ashley Tisdale, Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan, and Mike Tyson, the film is a fun and entertaining watch. Fans of the Scary Movie franchise and those who enjoy comedies with a horror twist are sure to enjoy this movie.

Scary Movie 5 is a 2012 comedy. It has received poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 3.5 and a MetaScore of 11.
