More Info:
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Like its two predecessors, Scary Movie 3 is a hit-or-miss affair, but the gags that connect really connect.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Kevin Thomas

    It is consistently entertaining and frequently hilarious, the violence of the slapstick so cartoonish that it does not spoil the fun.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    Thanks to director Zucker, this is by far the best installment yet -- there's less bathroom humor and more "Airplane!"-type lunacy.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Jack Mathews

    The jokes come in endless flurries, and if they're working - even at a ratio of 1 in 4 - you're laughing more than you're not. The Zucker-Proft team simply has a higher batting average than the Wayans.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Scary Movie 3 is a veritable time capsule of of-this-moment kitsch, schlock and bad taste. And it's funny, too.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Sean Axmaker

    Where the Wayanses flogged every last chuckle from their belabored ideas, Zucker spring-loads his gags and lets them fly in rapid-fire succession. Not everything hits the target, but he tosses so many of them off with a wink and a grin that they catch you by surprise.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    The franchise, which had begun to run out of steam in Part 2, has been given a shot of adrenaline with the replacement of the Wayans Brothers as the prime creative forces by Hollywood's original spoof-meister, David Zucker.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Kevin Carr

    Overall, the whole isn’t as funny as some of the parts. While some scenes had me laughing hysterically, others had me looking at my watch and feeling like I was in the middle of a “Saturday Night Live” sketch that was just going on waaaaaay too long.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • David Ng

    Vigorously date- and time-stamped, Scary Movie 3 boasts a cultural half-life of about five seconds, but for those seeking a return on their weekly multiplex pilgrimages, this movie is The One.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Teresa Wiltz

    It's outrageous. It's obnoxious. It's offensive. And yes, it's also really, really, really funny. Or, at least, it is for the first 40 minutes or so.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Robert K. Elder

    Plot doesn't matter much here, as Scary Movie 3 exists solely to reference and lampoon other movies, in this case "The Ring," "Signs " and "8 Mile."

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Jonathan Foreman

    Although Scary Movie 3 boasts the same relaxed attitude to racial and sexual humor, some of the same eye for movieland ridiculousness, along with the usual cameos (Pamela Anderson and Simon Cowell), it lacks a single explosive, roll-on-the-floor gag, and too often repeats and belabors jokes that are merely OK.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Mike Clark

    The time might be right for the Scary movies to quit on top, even though, alas, there are no term limits for sequels.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    Notably Wayansless. It's also notably devoid of a point of view.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Jason Anderson

    The decision to overhaul the Scary Movie franchise by sending up such non-horror titles as "8 Mile" and "The Matrix Reloaded" also pays dividends.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    Sneaks in the occasional child-molestation or bestiality joke, but otherwise seems content to cannibalize the broad slapstick of Zucker's halcyon days with Jerry Zucker and Jim Abrahams.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Gregory Weinkauf

    A bucket of crap, but at well under 90 minutes it's a small bucket, and half the crap is amusing.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Dennis Harvey

    Results here are just middling funny, with no truly memorable high points and a sum impact that goes poof!

    Variety Full Review
  • Kim Morgan

    One of the funniest things in Scary Movie 3 is Pamela Anderson. She makes us laugh. And not just at her (though she's game to poke fun at her image) but with her.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    Ends up committing the spoof genre's worst crime: becoming a tired parody of itself.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Chris Hewitt

    it is intermittently very funny.

    Empire Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    As in the late-period works of Mel Brooks, the very structure of the film feels irreparably fatigued.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    The average issue of Mad magazine contains significantly smarter movie satire, because Mad goes for the vulnerable elements and Scary Movie 3 just wants to quote and kid.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    Films like this are the definition of "critic proof"; if the casting, synopsis and very concept don't deter you, you'll probably find it very funny.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    After the first few minutes, viewers will get the feeling they just emerged from a 14-month coma. Even the non-movie jokes focus on last year's news.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    If there's one thing this motion picture proves, it's that "The Naked Gun 33 1/3" wasn't the final insult from a founding ZAZ (Zucker/Abrams/Zucker) member; this is.
