If you've seen Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer, then you know the entire plot of Scary Movie. That's okay, though, because this is a parody, and it helps to know the story in order to be able to get the jokes. No, the biggest surprise here is not the story as much as the amount of full-frontal male nudity. Really, in addition to all the dick jokes (and the ass jokes and fart jokes), there's a couple of shots of the male member, one of which is erect and used as a weapon. Scary Movie somehow ended up with an R rating, which in a sense is groundbreaking; perhaps our ratings board is loosening up after all.

But is it funny? That's the most important question, and the answer to that is yes. In the vein of Airplane!, with a dash of the Farrelly brothers, Scary Movie keeps throwing jokes at you one after another. The law of averages says some of them have to hit, and enough of them do to keep the movie entertaining. Unlike the makers of Airplane!, however, the Wayans brothers aren't making this movie out of a love of the genre, and unlike the Farrelly brothers, they don't make fun of retarded people with any sort of respect, so the humor throughout feels a lot uglier. Still, there are enough funny scenes in Scary Movie to make the viewing experience worthwhile. Special credit must go to Lochlyn Munro as Greg, the over-the-top jock, who steals the movie up until the time he's gotta die.--Andy Spletzer

3.0 out of 5 stars Intéressant & amusant Aug. 4 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
J'ai trouvé ce film assez intéressant et surtout drole. À mon idée ça ne fait pas partie d'un film d'horreur. C'est un moyen, pour moi, de me détendre.

3.0 out of 5 stars a few very funny moments,but not enough (2.75/5) Oct. 3 2007
By falcon
Format:DVD
i remember watching this movie when it first came out,and thinking it
was a scream.but,after just watching it again today,i have a different
opinion.sure,there are a few very funny parts,but for the most part,i
just found the movie silly.it definitely is not for anyone easily
offended,that's for sure.this certainly isn't the worst movie i've ever
seen,and as a spoof,it's OK.it certainly does lampoon a few horror
movie and even some non horror movie,with varying degrees of
success.ironically it almost works better as a horror movie than a
spoof,in my mind.it is certainly watchable and not boring.it just isn't
as funny as i originally remembered it.for me,Scary movie is about a
2.75/5

4.0 out of 5 stars A true gem!! June 29 2004
Format:DVD
Not a five-star film... that's for special movies. But you need to see this!! Yes, the humor is kind of overdone/over the top and/or truly sick at times, but that just adds to it. There are so many films being parodied you lose track, but you almost NEVER stop laughing. This is one worth owning, seriously!

3.0 out of 5 stars sick..... June 27 2004
Format:DVD
i thought it was very crude and disgusting, but kinda funny in a way. like, for example, i don't think that a guy shoving his penis through another guy's ear or someone taking a pic of a guys small penis is funny. but i think that a woman trying to get through a whole in a garage door is funny, lol. but i guess it was alright. i give it 3-1/2 stars

1.0 out of 5 stars Comedy & Horror Will Never Mix............ June 15 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Scary Movie is basically a lame parody of Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer. Like the manufactuer's description, if youv'e seen Scream and I Know What You Did, then you know the whole movie. There are a few funny jokes, especailly at the beggining with Carmen Electra, but the movie gets weirder as it continues.Basically the only reason someone would ever buy this crap would be either they really hated the two originals or just really, really like them.The killer, who some call Smiley due to his smiling scream mask at Halloween, however, is alright at playing Mr. Ghostface. So in otherwords, this movie is low in the Spaceballs level. Please, watch the originals if you want a good slaher flick. Or go get a comedy like Mr. Deeds or Anger Management. Comedy and Horror just don't mix.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious movie June 12 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Scary Movie is a hilarious movie, starring Anna Faris as Cindy, and my favorite character, the stoner Shorty. The movie begins, with a hilarious scene, which is the perfect parody of Scream's first scene. For example, Drew answers the killers question of what's your favorite scary movie by saying Kazaam, the one where Shaq plays a genie. There are many other hilarious moments and one liners, like when the murder hides from our heroine Cindy behind a couch. However, there are some extremely sick parts, like when Ray goes into the bathroom, but don't let the few parts like that stop you from seeing this hilarious movie, but I do suggest that if you haven't Scream, you might want to see that first.
