Scary Movie 3 is great humor at first. This one spoofs "The Ring", "Signs", "The Matrix", "The Others" and "8 Mile". Its funny really but only the first time around. The second time you get a chuckle and the third time you probably won't care for some parts.
The movie begins with a rather clever spoof of "The Ring", letting you know what the main spoof of the movie is. The movie then goes off into Cindy (yes the same Cindy from the previous two films). She finds this mysterious tape and watches it and learns that she'll die in seven days. Not unusual for anyone who's seen "The Ring".
The film also focuses on a Pasture that's lost his faith since his wife died in a car accident of a friend who fell asleep behind the wheel (clearly from "Signs"). The crops circles and aliens are there as well.
The THIRD and final focus is on a young boy who wants to be a rapper and hopes to make it in the movie business someday (clearly 8 Mile).
The humor in the film can be to die for. Not so much language and drugs in every scene but as far as sexual humor goes, this film STILL has a lot of that, in case you're wondering. It says "PG-13" but if you've got younger kids keep them FAR FAR AWAY from this movie as a lot of the kiddies will be asking questions to the sexual jokes they don't (and more than likely won't) understand.
But as I said, watching the movie again and again shows that you'll quickly forget it. The humor is nice but a lot of it is incredibly stupid!Read more ›
"Scary Movie 3" uses "The Ring" and "Signs" as the main themes of the third installment. The beginning of the movie is exactly like the beginning of "The Ring" with Pamela Lee Anderson and Jenny McCarthy. It was pretty hilarious to watch, as also what the Scary Movies do is point out questionable and often, stupid, aspects of the movies that they are portraying.
Charlie Sheen and Simon Rex are two of the main characters in this movie, with the theme of "Signs". Sheen is an ex-priest living on a farm with his wanna-be rapper brother, Rex. Faris returns as the leading character in the film, as a news reporter. She represents Naomi Watts' character in "The Ring" who is a newspaper reporter trying to find out about the mystery of the videotape. Regina Hall also re-appears as Faris' good friend, who is now a teacher. There are cameos by Queen Latifah, George Carlin, Eddie Griffin, Denise Richards, and Leslie Nielson (Gun 1 1/2), are some of the actors/actresses that appear in the movie.
With ideas from "The Sixth Sense", Faris' nephew has an extrasensory sense that gives him the ability to see and know things that other people do not. Also, there is a part of the movie that uses "The Others". Rex's character portrays Eminem in "8 Mile", with a MC battle scene. It also uses ideas from "The Matrix Reloaded", with Queen Latifah as the Oracle and Eddie Griffin as Morpheus.Read more ›
The heavy targets are "signs" and "The Ring" with Charlie Sheen taking over the Mel Gibson role as the former minister. Leslie Nielsen plays the President in typical Airplane-esque fashion.
The jokes come rapid fire and there are a lot of sight gags and inside jokes that you might not get unless you saw the above movies.
Scary Movie 3 is a bit toned down than the first two movies and gets a PG13 rating for language and sexual content. Nothing too strong though. The opening sequence with former Playboy Playmates Pam Anderson & Jenny McArthy playing out the opening sequence from "The Ring" in dumb blonde fashion complete with their enhanced breasts in bras is a classic.
No classic, but good fun and several laugh out loud funny scenes.
