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

Spoof movie with a myriad of unimaginative gags
19 May 2006 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

This third chapter deals about Cindy(Anna Faris)who must to protect a kid and relates with his brother,a white rapper(Simon Rex)and the father(Charlie Sheen).Besides investigate strange crop circles and eerie videotapes and shunning an Alian invaders with the intervention of the stupidest President(Leslie Nielsen).

Cindy is back ,this time to save America from a plot Alien invasion for world domination.She thwart the plans and saves the kid from a ghostly creature.From the start to the ending the humor and the laughters are innumerable. Lots of gags and sketch,some of them funny but movie lacks the freshness of the first and second installment. This is a hilarious parody,surrealist,extreme spoof and gross out though less than its predecessors but also is intelligent and bold. As always the cinematographic references are numerous and provide silly laughs from start to finish,the amusement is guess what films result to be ,thus : ¨Sings¨and ¨The ring¨ specially but also ¨8 miles¨¨The others¨with a ironic gag of Michael Jackson,and with a President(a deadpan Nielsen) similar to ¨Air Force One¨. The picture contains loads of fun here and there and a passel of cameo appearances as Pamela Anderson,Jenny McCarthy,Queen Latifah,Eddie Griffin and rappers,JA Rule,Master P,Method man. The movie is directed by David Zucker,he along with his brother Jerry Zucker and Jim Abrahams are famous American satirists(ZAZ),they are directors and writers with successful work and long time collaborators,making their own comedy troupe(The Kentucky Fried). The motion picture will like to lunatic humor and absurd comedy enthusiastic.
