The Scary Movie series didn’t start well and has been getting worse ever since, with its only conceivable merit being the dedication of star Anna Feris to the trademark gross-out ‘humour’. Even Faris seems to have realised this is one horse that can’t take much more flogging, and is not attached to the upcoming fifth entry. The movie’s plot, if you’ll excuse the implications of credibility that word implies, has been leaked by an extras casting call and, surprise surprise, it sounds like the series’ steady decline from underwhelming to abominable is continuing apace:
The story in Scary Movie 5 involves the dance world, with a snooty, aloof, imperious, and oversexed French director of a dance company named Pierre putting on a huge production. Jody, a Caucasian late-20’s mother of two and her late-20’s African American friend Kendra are both vying for the lead in the production. Jody’s extremely controlling former dancer mother is determined that Jody will have the brilliant career that eluded her. The highly skilled mid-30’s Diva veteran dancer with the company, Heather Daltry, gets cut from the production and goes berserk.
Soooooo… yeah. Way to be topical, Scary Movie, you’re only two years late for a Black Swan parody.[via First Showing]
