‘Haunted’ wears out only joke

Marlon Wayans wrings every last down-and-dirty giggle out of a single joke in “A Haunted House,” his return to “Scary Movie” territory, in truth if not by contract.

Malcolm (Wayans) calls in his thug cousin and pals to deal with the “demon” that moved in at the same time Kisha (Essence Atkins) did.

Naturally, the thug’s name is “Ray-Ray” (Affion Crockett, funny). Naturally, he’s overmatched.

Cedric the Entertainer is a foul-mouthed priest who figures it would be easier to find a new girlfriend than to exorcise Kisha.

Wayans hasn’t given himself much that’s new to play around with, protesting that “checking out” that noise downstairs “is what WHITE people do,” insisting that people of his race “RUN.”
