A mysterious killer video tape is circulating around. One look at this tape and you have seven days left to live. News Reporter Cindy Campbell (Faris) witnesses this video tape and tries to work out a way to prevent her death. But this is not the only mystery to appear. Crop circles have been appearing in the local farm of Tom (Sheen) and George (Rex). With help from Aunt Shaneequa (Latifah), Cindy suspects that the aliens may be linked with the killer tape and must now work out both mysteries before it's the end of the world. Written by Film_Fan

The first of two Scary Movies to parody a slasher film remake, as it with the Cindy and Tabitha confrontation parodies The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake of 2003, the fifth Scary Movie with the Jody and Kendra cabin sequence parodies the Evil Dead remake of 2013. See more »

Cindy: I can't believe you let that happen.
George: I know, I'm sorry. I screwed up.
Cindy: Listen, we can still save him. The answer to the tape, to your crop circles, is at a lighthouse. Oh, you think I'm crazy, don't you?
George: Of course I do.

David Zucker!
22 June 2005 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

First Aiplane and Naked Gun - now this!

You can see that it is a Zucker quality. Though I like the fist two movies, I must say this is the best one. This movie contains the least "potty- humor" and is sort of... classy.

Everybody in the cast does a great job, and I was really impressed by Charlie Sheen, but the star in the picture is of course Leslie Nielsen. He is a veteran and a master of comedy. He doesn't need to make funny faces or anything to be funny. He's just him.

I can honestly say, I didn't waste those 85 SEK for the ticket (85 SEK is about 11-12 US dollars).
