NOTE:
The following is an unedited version of our final review that may contain spelling, grammatical, and/or factual errors. This film was not screened in advance for reviewers.
QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: A man must contend with paranormal events when he moves into a woman's house with her kids in this parody of recent horror films.
PLOT:
A year after his possessed girlfriend, Kisha (ESSENCE ATKINS), was left for dead in a car accident he suffered along with his brother, Ray-Ray (AFFION CROCKETT), Malcolm Johnson (MARLON WAYANS) has gotten on with his life. He's moved into a nice neighborhood with his girlfriend, Megan (JAIME PRESSLY), and her two kids, moody teenager Becky (ASHLEY RICKARDS) and her younger brother Wyatt (STEELE STEBBINS). It's not long, however, before things start going bump in the night, and day.

After having sex with a creepy female doll, Malcolm can't seem to get rid of the apparently possessed object; Becky becomes obsessed with a small wooden box, and Wyatt seems to have a ghost friend named Tony, all while Megan is oblivious to all of that. Desperate, Malcolm turns to a number of people for help, starting with his neighbor Miguel (GABRIEL IGLESIAS).

When that doesn't work, he seeks out fallen priest Father Williams (CEDRIC THE ENTERTAINER), professor Wilde (RICK OVERTON), and eventually the married psychic investigator team of Ned (HAYES MACARTHUR)and Noreen (MISSI PYLE), all while dealing with continued paranormal activity and the development of Becky ending up possessed.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
