Scary Movie 3 Reviews

June 23, 2008
Just middling funny, with no truly memorable high points and a sum impact that goes poof! before you've left the parking garage.
February 9, 2006
Zucker's slapstick may have the satiric delicacy of a chainsaw lobotomy, but it hasn't harmed the franchise.
November 5, 2003
Zucker and company keep up such a frantic pace, the next laugh is never too far off.
October 30, 2003
Too often even Scary Movie 3's cleverest bits degenerate from affectionate satire into mere imitation of their sources.
October 29, 2003
A hit-or-miss affair, but the gags that connect really connect.

October 28, 2003
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.
October 27, 2003
... this genre is pretty much dead.
October 24, 2003
[David] Zucker's film ultimately comes up short because he doesn't seem to want to slow down as he gets older.
October 24, 2003
If you haven't been a regular fixture at the multiplex, or don't spend all your time in front of the tube surfing hip-hop videos on MTV2, then you're not in on the joke, and if you're not in on the joke, you might want to skip this one.
October 24, 2003
A sequel funnier than its predecessors.

October 24, 2003
It's all been there, razzed that, with long flat valleys stretching beneath the comic peaks.

October 24, 2003
It's last year's satire, wearing this year's clothes.

There are a few laughs in Scary Movie 3, but most of the content is hopelessly dated.

October 24, 2003
The Naked Gun 33 1/3 wasn't the final insult from a founding ZAZ (Zucker/Abrams/Zucker) member; this is.

October 24, 2003
Scary Movie 3 is a veritable time capsule of of-this-moment kitsch, schlock and bad taste. And it's funny, too.

Plays like 80 minutes of Naked Gun rejects.

Mediocre spoof.

October 24, 2003
Despite one of the year's best trailers, this horror-film spoof is as laugh-challenged as the woeful first sequel.

It has the tasteless thing going on but no film can succeed on vomit alone.

If you don't think Mother Teresa commemorative bobbleheads are funny, this movie is definitely not for you.

October 24, 2003
The movie is filled with famous and semi-famous faces, although only two of them work for their laughs and get them.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
October 24, 2003
The last 15 minutes of this movie feel as sleepy and uninspired as the last 30 of any recent episode of Saturday Night Live. But the movie has given up long before that.

There are worse comedies, but few more pointless.

October 24, 2003
An old-hat mixture of obvious parody and exaggerated bad taste.

The funniest and possibly sickest entry yet.

October 24, 2003
New director, new writers, same old shtick.
October 23, 2003
[David Zucker] still has the eye, ear and metabolism of a hyperactive child weaned entirely on candy bars and educated by Mad Magazine.

Consistently entertaining and frequently hilarious.

October 23, 2003
Although it's a definite improvement over the last movie, Scary Movie 3 feels like 20 minutes of material spread over an hour and a half.

October 23, 2003
Under Mr. Zucker's direction, Scary Movie 3 ends up being neither the lowball spoof its predecessors were, nor the sort of madcap farce for which Mr. Zucker is famous.
Full Review | Original Score: C
October 23, 2003
Crass, crude and sledgehammer- subtle. Yet, you can't help giggling yourself stupid, even at the more obvious sight gags.

October 23, 2003
It's the ideal comedy for 12-year-old boys of every age and gender.
October 23, 2003
The laughs are so far apart and offer so few comic calories that it might be time to stick a fork in the franchise.

Scary Movie 3 blows more opportunities than the post-season Braves.
