Trivia

Crazy Credits

At the end of the credits, there is a brief scene in which "Doofy" breaks up with his vacuum cleaner but then decides to have one last go of it. See more »

Alternate Versions

Theatrical release includes a scene where Brenda is in a movie theater watching Shakespeare in Love and says of Gwyneth Paltrow: "Brad Pitt's ex-girlfriend is a real freak. She dressed up like a man." After the initial release, producer Harvey Weinstein allegedly changed his mind about the joke, feeling that it was disrespectful to Paltrow and requested its removal future versions of the picture. On all home-video and foreign releases the offending line has been redubbed to "She's about to get it on with Shakespeare. She dressing like a man." See more »

User Reviews

 
Comedy classic, discard the negativity
22 May 2016 | by Horror-yoSee all my reviews

This is Scary Movie. Like, THE Scary Movie. The movie that made fun of horror movies, aptly and plainly named "Scary Movie". The film that's had an entire generation crack up and still, today, reference its many hilarious moments as modern day lore. The time is 2000. The crack of the new millennium and an entire people fed up with the blatancy of contemporary horror, with all its predictability and sameness, what with the countless modern slashers coming out at the time and what not. Along comes this film, a Wayans brothers' production, with a style of humor that is so comically exaggerated and contagious lots of scenes remain references today. I really can't think of another explanation that the people putting this down are just prudes who can't take a fun ride every once in a while and just are incapable of seeing this for what it is, because it most certainly works fantastically at what it does.
