Wilson of The Daily Rotation wrote, "The Scary Movie franchise was pretty good at the start. It’s actually what helped lift Anna Faris’ career to what she has now. Even when the Wayans dropped out, Faris stuck with the Scary Movie franchise all the way though the fourth, which was fairly awful itself. After that, she decided to call it quits with the franchise and move on to less embarrassing roles. When you lose the one constant throughout a series, it can’t be good."
