Trivia

Jump to: Cameo (1)
Anthony Anderson's character, Mahalik, turned out so popular in test screenings, additional scenes for him were quickly written and shot while the film was already in post-production.
Anna Faris (Cindy) and Regina Hall (Brenda) are the only two to appear in four of the five Scary Movie films.
Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer were briefly in talks to write and direct the movie after the Wayans Brothers left the franchise. However, Friedberg and Seltzer wanted to make the movie chiefly a parody of Star Wars, Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings, whose working title was reported as "Scary Movie 3: Episode I: Lord of the Brooms." Ultimately, Harvey Weinstein preferred to keep the series parodying horror films, and so Friedberg and Seltzer's script went unused.
The "And twins!" sequence is a parody of a 2003 ad campaign by Coors Light beer. Diane Klimaszewski and Elaine Klimaszewski reprise their roles as the Coors Light Twins from the ads.
At one point, Kevin Smith was attached to write the script.
In the trailer, a scene is shown with the oracle threatening her husband with a frying pan. This was not shown in the theatrical version.
Some additional scenes, extensively including spoofs of The Matrix Reloaded (2003), were removed from the final film. They included a scene where Cindy fights a large number of Tabithas, similar to the Burly Brawl scene in The Matrix Reloaded (2003) and Orpheus "prophesizing." The removal of those scenes is also the reason of Queen Latifah never appearing in the final movie dressed as Neo from The Matrix Reloaded (2003), although she appears dressed up that way in the movie's promotions and poster.
A lengthy alternative ending was shot but later scrapped. That ending included spoofs of A Beautiful Mind (2001), Hulk (2003), and especially The Matrix Reloaded (2003).
In the beginning of the movie, the scene where Pamela Anderson and Jenny McCarthy are discussing what happens on the tape, McCarthy's character mentions something going on on a boat and a car. She is referring to Anderson's and Tommy Lee's famous "private" video that got leaked online.
Charlie Sheen's first parody movie since Hot Shots! Part Deux (1993).
Jenny McCarthy appears in Scary Movie 3 (2003) after turning down a role in the original Scary Movie (2000) to appear in Scream 3 (2000).

When Cindy is searching about Morton Lighthouse, there are several pop-ups that appear on the screen, but one is not an ad. It says "This may sound overly simplified... but high interest rates eventually cause low interest rates... and conversely... low interest rates eventually lead to high interest rates," with a yellow background.

In the scene where Eddie Griffin is trying to watch the Lakers game, Queen Latifah tells him the Lakers will win by twelve. This mostly likely refers to the February 1, 2003 game against the Utah Jazz, which resulted in a 99-87 win for the Lakers at home.

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

The scene where president (Leslie Nielsen) opens the door and says "I wanted to say, good luck, we're all counting on you" is referring to the cockpit scene of the movie Airplane (1980) where Leslie Nielsen says the same thing.
