It's better than the second film...

As with Scary Movie parts one and two, you pays your money, you gets your laughs, and you won't remember a thing in a few months.

Fun, stupid stuff with no sense of a narrative arc or plot structure ... but hey, it made me laugh anyway.

This is just a stab in the dark, the wildest of guesses on my part, but I don't think Michael Jackson would recommend "Scary Movie 3."

Often in spectacular bad taste, but like its predecessors it made me laugh hard and often.

the film skewers a group very worthy of cinematic abuse and misuse, being what we playfully refer to as the stupid.

Zucker amps up the slapstick a little too much, resulting in headaches where belly laughs could've easily been harvested.

Zucker and company keep up such a frantic pace, the next laugh is never too far off.

The scariest thing about Scary Movie 3 is that it's actually pretty funny.

Yes, it's very, very stupid. But it's also full of hilariously inspired comedy.

When Scary Movie 3 hits, its belly laughs are loud and long, and it actually picks up steam in its second half.

A hit-or-miss affair, but the gags that connect really connect.

Ultimately a disposable movie that feeds off the pop culture of the moment, but for now -- for some generally funny comedy -- it's not a bad time at the movies.

No one goes to Scary Movie 3 expecting a work of genius. We go to be distracted for a while. It works on that level. Sometimes that is enough.

Leslie Neilsen reteams with Zucker as President Harris, and it's refreshing to see him in a wacky comedy spoof that is actually funny.

Rebounds nicely from its sophomore misfire, giddily inbreeding the plots of a half-dozen box office overachievers-from The Ring to 8 Mile -- until the result assumes a comically unstoppable life of its own.

At barely 80 minutes, it's just as long as it needs to be, and almost as funny.

Despite the sluggish third act, Scary Movie 3, for what it is - and that would be big, dumb fun - is worth shelling out the duckets for.

If your idea of a good time is trying not to roll in the aisles with laughter and risk making a fool of yourself, then Scary Movie 3 surprisingly fits the bills.
