Scary Movie 3
Scary Movie 3: 4 out of 10.
The peak of the satirical parody mountain was reached in 1988 with the release of The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!. Airplane was good, but The Naked Gun was better. All future efforts in this genre were to be measured against this true comedic masterpiece.
The Scary Movie franchise is one such follower that falls well short of The Naked Gun bar. Scary Movie 3, in fact, shares the same director, but it suffers from a pathetic score on the laugh-per-minute chart. The Naked Gun scores well off the chart when it comes to laughs-per-minute but Scary Movie 3 got me to laugh three, maybe four times the entire 84 minutes. That sucks.
What's really scary is the fact Scary Movie 4 is now in pre-production. Considering the original Scary Movie was pretty decent, Scary Movie 2 was half as good and Scary Movie 3 was pretty bad, I'm betting Scary Movie 4 is a complete disaster in the vein of The Master of Disguise. Now that's a frightful thought.
