Movie Info

While star Anna Faris returns for the third film in the Scary Movie series, the power behind the camera has shifted from the Wayans brothers to one of the Zucker brothers. The Zucker in question is David Zucker, and he's brought along his partner in movie-parody crime, Leslie Nielsen. This time around, aim is taken at such horror blockbusters as Signs and The Ring, while films of other genres, including Independence Day, 8 Mile, and The Matrix, are also lampooned. The plot finds Cindy (Faris) trying to help the president (Nielsen) thwart an alien attack while also facing crop circles and a mysterious video tape. In the spirit of the two Matrix sequels, Scary Movie 3 was shot back-to-back with Scary Movie 4. Queen Latifah, Charlie Sheen, and Eddie Griffin also star. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Scary Movie 3

  • Apr 06, 2015
    A more polished entry of the series, Scary Movie 3 boasts a more mature Anna Faris' protagonist Cindy Campbell into the franchise. Whilst it every so often references its ghetto american pie roots, the Wayans Brothers have fled the scene and that's probably for the best.

    David Zucker continues the Scary Movie series, began by the Wayans brothers, with a hilarious third installment. Mainly parodying The Ring and Signs, Cindy, now a newscaster in DC, must uncover the mystery behind a video tape that kills the viewer after seven days, and its connection to alien crop circles. There are also clever spoofs of The Lord of the Rings, 8 Mile, The Others, and The Matrix Reloaded. Featuring performances by Anna Faris, Charlie Sheen, Pamela Anderson, George Carlin, and Leslie Nielsen, the cast is full of great comedic talent. Additionally, Zucker keeps the comedy PG-13 by focusing more on broad, slapstick humor. But while it's full of laughs and is entertaining, overall Scary Movie 3 is a mediocre parody film.

    Scary Movie 3 is a hilarious film and is a good comedy, but the problem is that it just feels that now they are trying a little TOO hard to be stupid. The storyline is funny, and a great spoof. The cast is ok, the little boy and Charlie Sheen were hilarious, but Anna Farris is getting old. The jokes are great, but when I laughed I felt kind of stupid for laughing, is that wrong? Oh well, if you want a good spoof, watch this, if you actually wanna see a great spoof watch the first one.

    It was stupid most of the time, but I thought it was funny as hell.
