Alternate Versions

A bootleg work-print version circulating after the film's theatrical release contained extra footage not present on the DVD. Here are some of the differences:
  • The work-print has been panned and scanned from the Super-35 negative (you can tell because when Gail shoots the boy behind her, you see the crash pad he lands on)
  • When Cindy, Buffy and Brenda are arriving at school there's a extended talk scene, where's Buffy tells that she saw in the newspaper a horrible picture of Drew died wearing clothes that doesn't match
  • In the work-print, just before Doofy tells the crowd of reporters that "Gail swallows", he asks if anyone wants to smell his finger
  • A short sequence in the work-print sees a hungry Shorty in the cafeteria saying, "I wonder what they have for lunch?" He then looks at the menus which say "Same old shit"
  • Brenda's dialogue about Gwyneth Paltrow, where she says "Brad Pitt's ex-girlfriend is a real freak, she dressed up like a man" was present in the work-print
  • The sequence with Drew's boyfriend was different in the work-print. The boyfriend was different, and the editing was slightly altered in comparison to the DVD
  • "Bobby's Lesson", one of the deleted scenes on the DVD, was integrated into the movie in the work-print
  • The black news reporter in the van speaks with his original voice; he is dubbed for most of his lines in the official release. He doesn't say "reporting live for Black TV", but instead says "reporting live for B.E.T."
  • The Budweiser advert parody was not in the work-print
  • More sexual jokes about Cindy's mom were made just before Cindy comes to see the principal in the work-print. At one point, the Sheriff gets on the table and thrusts into it, pretending to be having sex, and as Cindy walks in the principal says something along the lines of "well, thanks for clearing up my back problem, Sheriff."
  • Just after this, a little more dialogue between Doofy and the principal was present in the work-print
  • The scene where the killer phones someone and asks what their favorite scary movie is wasn't in the work-print
  • Buffy's death was more gory in the work-print, including her intestines being pulled out and her head talking after it is dumped in Lost & Found
  • When Cindy asks Bobby about a PG-13 relationship, when she opens her night gown she has has six nipples
  • Cindy's scream at the end was longer in the work-print and the shot just cuts to black so we don't see her get run over
  • When the man on the roof kills himself, after Cindy screams, "What are you waiting for, huh?!", the work-print loses a cutaway to the man saying to himself, "What am I waiting for?" before he jumps off

One of the funniest spoofs ever
7 July 2000 | by Quinoa1984See all my reviews

Scary Movie is now (it was a little while ago it was Me, Myself & Irene) my favorite comedy of the year. This film gives another word to the spoof/comedy genre, and even though it doesn't make a breakthrough like Airplane!, it is still very, very funny. Sure it's not for everyone, but for those who have seen all the scary movies parodied in this film (example- Scream, Scream 2, I Know What You Did Last Summer, The Matrix, The Sixth Sense, The Blair Witch Project, Halloween, The Shining, etc) and can enjoy a good comedy, this film is definitely for you.

But the plot is unexplainable, but the jokes are. The spoof follows in the Wayans bros. tradition (this film is directed by Keenan Ivory Wayans, written by Shawn and Marlon Wayans, produced by all three, and starring all three) of they're last spoof- Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood. Jokes include a guy who acts very gay but isn't (Shawn Wayans) a pot head (Marlon Wayans) and some other characters (Carmen Electra's cameo is my favorite). Also, the references to movies but not parodies are still funny. Very sick, very crude, very funny. The funniest film of the year. A+
