The picture above from 'Scary Movie 4' should tell you everything you need to know about the 'Scary Movie' franchise at this point. By the end there weren't enough horror movies to parody, so they started taking on any major movies (including 'Brokeback Mountain'), and were basically doing what Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer did with their spin-off parodies (which started with 'Date Movie' and'Epic Movie'). The franchise and parody films in general wore out their welcome, so perhaps it'll be a breath of fresh air when 'Scary Movie 5' hits theaters January 11, 2013.
