Five is more than enough.

Somehow the best scenes in the film are at the beginning with Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen.  The two most scandalized performers on the film stage today.  The two are featured in an acrobatic dance in their bed as the ghost floats down the hall near their room.  The next most effective scenes are the outtakes at the end.

The thread of a story somewhat revolves around Jody (Ashley Tisdale) and Dan (Simon Rex) and three lost children who join their family.  Pieces can be observed from a series of science fiction and horror films.  Jody is challenged by Kendra Brooks (Erica Ash) for the lead in Swan Lake as the dark side takes over.  

Snoop Dogg plays himself and that is, I guess comical.  The true comedy ended a few Scary Movies ago, Five just makes us suffer as we sit through this 80 minute farce of a farce.
