Now like reality tv, I’m not really a fan of modern movies. Ever since the 2000s hit I’ve seen a huge decline in the quality of films made. It’s all about the benjamin’s which equals a decline in good productions. Therefore, I really don’t frequent the movie theaters (or watch movies in general) these days unless I see a really interesting preview, and even then the previews are normally deceptive because the film usually ends up sucking!
Well, I saw the preview or trailer for “A Haunted House,”starring Marlon Wayans and Essence Atkins and featuring Cedric the Entertainer, and I was very inclined to watch it. The Wayans brothers are normally very good with making great comedic films, like “White Chicks” and the parodies to “Scream,” called “Scarey Movie.” So I had a feeling that the movie would be good, and GUESS WHAT?! It was pretty hilarious! I and almost the whole theater, laughed so hard, that I cried through the beginning to the middle of the film. However, it did get a little boring when Cedric the Entertainer was introduced towards the end of the movie. Overall, if you love humor and/or you’re having a bad day and want to laugh until your ribs hurt, definitely go see the movie. Beware, that the film is rated R, meaning it contains some vulgarity and nudity. CHECK OUT THE TRAILER BELOW!
