Obviously, I just loved the fact that they turned to the dry-witted humor genre, as opposed to the first 2 installments of "Scary Movie," which at times were funny, but were never clever enough to be considered hilarious in my opinion. They figured out in number 3 that less of the potty talk and more of the sarcastic, making-fun-of-other-films talk is the way to go.
Based around "The Ring," "Signs," "8 Mile," and "Matrix Reloaded," it is hard to keep from laughing, beginning with the opening scene, which mirrors "The Ring" perfectly.
This film watches the details. It is obvious the writers, producers, and directors watched the movies they were making fun of. I saw a lot more hard work in "Scary Movie 3" than the other two. It seemed like someone smart and responsible finally took over a movie series that has so much potential. This could revolutionize the industry because there are always new movies to go off on. There could be a "Scary Movie 15" in twelve years, and as long as the same style was used as in this film, it would be just as effective because it would have a completely different field of films to create parody from.
People complain that there is no point of this movie, that it's just stupid. These people are missing the point. It doesn't matter if it has a plot, or a surprise ending, or great special effects. The point is that "Scary Movie 3" takes four films that take themselves very seriously, and puts them into a satire, that truly works. This movie can be corny in scenes because of its nature; it's not taking itself SERIOUSLY! At all! Like the Sci-Fi Channel classic TV show "Mystery Science Theater 3000," or FOX's "The Simpsons" and "Family Guy," this is comedy for the ages, and if you appreciate good humor, watch this one as soon as possible. But please, watch at least "The Ring" and "Signs" first, because the ability to relate exactly what is going on makes it that much funnier.
