Review by Mil Peliculas
This last credit amazed me. These guys have good agents. Based on characters created by these guys (I added the stolen part). But it's true. How can you invent a character that is the same character as the creepy girl from The Ring for instance? It's the same friggin' girl, just doing wacky stuff. WHATEVER.
Let's talk about Scary Movie 3. Actually, not a lot to talk about. It's the Airplane!, Naked Gun, Top Secret guys taking a whack at the horror spoof genre this time, and they pull it off as good or better than the Wayans boys and whoever the other guys are. It's a pretty clever mixture of the latest horror hits, and an occasional hearken back to some older ones too.
Charlie Sheen plays the Mel Gibson character from Signs , dealing with an alien invasion that's connected to the mysterious videotape going around. The one that people watch and then get killed one week later.
What can you really say about this type of movie. If the jokes are funny, then it works. For my taste, there were too many slow spots, but there are enough laughs for me to recommend it.
