Plays like 80 minutes of Naked Gun rejects.
| Original Score: 1/5

Best way to ensure a film isn't taken too seriously? Cast Leslie Nielsen of Naked Gun fame as president of the United States. That'll do the trick.

The movie is filled with famous and semi-famous faces, although only two of them work for their laughs and get them.

The Naked Gun 33 1/3 wasn't the final insult from a founding ZAZ (Zucker/Abrams/Zucker) member; this is.

But this is a movie that will primarily appeal to those who are young enough to get a kick out of the inherent subversiveness of any satire aimed at popular media, without caring too much whether any of the targets are actually hit.

... this genre is pretty much dead.

Current horror movies are so ironic, they parody themselves, which means they have beaten (and stabbed and eviscerated) Scary Movie 3 to the punch.
| Original Score: 2/4

The only thing scarier than the opening weekend box office of this horror spoof trequel is the body count of unfunny jokes.

Leave your brain in the foyer, and your taste in the toilets.

The flood of silly jokes will either make you laugh or they won't, but at least Zucker enlists the services of several veterans of this kind of nonsense.

If you aren't going to make the movie funny, you could at least make the title appropriate.

It's all been there, razzed that, with long flat valleys stretching beneath the comic peaks.

...that's three times the regurgitated chuckles since the original made the scene and ushered in this so-called unavoidable phenomenon that keep popping up like an annoying pimple on an adolescent girl's face.

On their own as little skits the horror spoof vignettes are funny enough, but as a 90 minute movie they just don't work.

Zucker's slapstick may have the satiric delicacy of a chainsaw lobotomy, but it hasn't harmed the franchise.

If you're looking for anything other than a parody clipshow, you won't find it.
| Original Score: 25/100

I don't expect Zucker to exhibit good taste, but he could have relied less on the predictably crude and crudely predictable.

Scary Movie 3 starts out so funny you'll be wishing you'd brought a respitory assistance apparatus... but then it continues.

Algumas gags funcionam, mas numa razão de cerca de 30%, eu diria. Portanto, talvez esta produção valha o preço do ingresso - isto é, caso você consiga 70% de desconto.

If you're a fan of the Scary Movie franchise, or of the ZAZ style, you should really check this one out.
