Storyline

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

Trivia

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.

Goofs

(at around 24 mins) When Brenda pretends to have a seizure and she foams from the mouth, she wipes it off with her sleeve. In the next shot there is no foam on her sleeve. See more »

I liked it
8 May 2005 | by rbverhoefSee all my reviews

I can be short about 'Scary Movie 3'. If you liked the first two films, especially the first, there is a good chance you will like this one. It is directed by David Zucker, one of the three directors of the great 'Airplane!', the film that sort of invented the genre, and it shows. Here it spoofs films such as 'The Ring', 'Signs' and 'The Matrix' and from time to time I thought it was really funny.

But when I think something is funny doesn't mean anything with a film like this. 'Scary Movie 3' is a matter of taste. If you like 'The Naked Gun', 'Hot Shots' and 'Scary Movie' you like this one, if you hate them, you hate this one. The humor is silly and stupid, but in the right mood most people must be able to laugh. I know I did.
