Shut Down Your Brain (Again) and Start Laughing With this Funny Franchise
The unemployed Cindy Campbell (Anna Farris) is hired to work in a
cursed house as caretaker of an old lady and meets the ghost of a boy.
Meanwhile, the teenager son Robbie and the young daughter Rachel of his
next door neighbor and crane operator Tom Ryan (Craig Bierko) are

As I have previously wrote, parody movies are always of the type 'love
or hate' it. I am not intellectual, I love cinema as culture, but also
as entertainment, so I like this genre. Further, when I see this type
of movie, I know exactly what I am going to see: scatological jokes,

This is the type of movie that you must shut down your brain and start
laughing. What I do not understand and really irritates me are the

David Zucker and with Leslie Nielsen and Anna Farris in the cast? An
art movie, with hidden messages, an epic, a classic or a film with
politically correct jokes? Honestly, if I did not like this genre, I
would never spend my time watching it. My vote is seven.
