This is what a tax write-off looks like folks. While the "Scary Movie" franchise to date has been mind-bogglingly successful, with the last entry earning $90 million at the box office, for this latest installment (without series lead Anna Faris) it seems the Weinsteins have lost all interest is producing another hit, and mostly just want to keep the brand going. Cheap, featuring a bunch of no names along with cameos from the likes of Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan and Katt Williams who will be using the paycheques to pay any past or future lawyers fees, the new trailer for "Scary Movie 5" shows how low the bar the go.

This is what a tax write-off looks like, folks. While the "Scary Movie" franchise to date has been mind-bogglingly successful, with the last entry earning $90 million at the box office, for this latest installment (without series lead Anna Faris) it seems the Weinsteins have lost all interest is producing another hit, and mostly just want to keep the brand going. Cheap, featuring a bunch of no-names, along with cameos from the likes of Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan and Katt Williams who will be using the paycheques to pay any past or future lawyers fees, the new trailer for "Scary Movie 5" shows how low the bar can go.

So, who is the target of parody this time? "Recent" movies like "Inception" and "Black Swan," the "Paranormal Activity" franchise, because no one has ever thought of making fun of them, and lots of physical comedy too, with pans falling on somone's head being the height of comedy. We never expected anything halfway decent out of this, but we're still surprised at how shoddy and shitty it is. Again, all we can say is that there must be some kind of advantageous accounting reason this got made at all.

"Scary Movie 5" hits on April 12th. Watch below.
