  1. Like its two predecessors, Scary Movie 3 is a hit-or-miss affair, but the gags that connect really connect.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. A bucket of crap, but at well under 90 minutes it's a small bucket, and half the crap is amusing.

    Results here are just middling funny, with no truly memorable high points and a sum impact that goes poof!
  6. Ends up committing the spoof genre's worst crime: becoming a tired parody of itself.

    The movie is fantastic, has no real plot, but the humor is spot on, never a dull moment.

This sequel also manages to be much more entertaining than that awful first sequel, but it feels messy at times and the pacing is all over the place. Overall, it is an improvement over Scary Movie 2 and is entertaining at times, but the humour is still hit-and-miss. Expand
