Product Description

In the tradition of "Airplane!" and the "Naked Gun" series comes this spoof of the horror genre. Featuring parodies of "Scream" and other popular movies, this film follows a group of teens being stalked by a serial killer.

Amazon.com

If you've seen Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer, then you know the entire plot of Scary Movie. That's okay, though, because this is a parody, and it helps to know the story in order to be able to get the jokes. No, the biggest surprise here is not the story as much as the amount of full-frontal male nudity. Really, in addition to all the dick jokes (and the ass jokes and fart jokes), there's a couple of shots of the male member, one of which is erect and used as a weapon. Scary Movie somehow ended up with an R rating, which in a sense is groundbreaking; perhaps our ratings board is loosening up after all.

But is it funny? That's the most important question, and the answer to that is yes. In the vein of Airplane!, with a dash of the Farrelly brothers, Scary Movie keeps throwing jokes at you one after another. The law of averages says some of them have to hit, and enough of them do to keep the movie entertaining. Unlike the makers of Airplane!, however, the Wayans brothers aren't making this movie out of a love of the genre, and unlike the Farrelly brothers, they don't make fun of retarded people with any sort of respect, so the humor throughout feels a lot uglier. Still, there are enough funny scenes in Scary Movie to make the viewing experience worthwhile. Special credit must go to Lochlyn Munro as Greg, the over-the-top jock, who steals the movie up until the time he's gotta die.--Andy Spletzer

Scary Movie turned out what I thought it to be (a halirious movie with people getting killed off in wacky ways and silly parodies of recent horror movies) and what I didn't think it to be (showing ...ahem... small full frontal male nudity, and a major major gross scene). The Wayans have majorly beat the "There's Something About Mary" creators with the most gross-out jokes ever displayed in a movie. Anyway, Scary Movie was a good funny movie. The acting, for a parody, was great. And even though it followed Scream by every scene almost, there were other movies parodied and mentioned. For example: I Know What You Did Last Summer, The Matrix, American Pie, The Blair Witch Project, Amistad, Shakespeare in Love, Friday the 13th, and I even caught something that dealt with The Exorcist. And how they copied Tatum's death scene was hilarious. If I say anymore, I will give out what plot here is to the movie, so I'm going to stop. Go check it out!

Scary Movie was of the best comedies of 2000. With spoofs from movies like Scream, I Know What You Did Last Summer, Blair Witch, and The Matrix, this film will be loved by all. The sexual content of the film makes it even funnier. (Not very explicit, shows very little).
In the opening scene with Carmen Electra, you know this movie will be great. Shawn and Marlon Wayans did a great job putting together this film and they got the greatest cast. The whole over-all plot with Doofy is absoleutly hilarious and you'll be laughing out loud at the end of this brilliant movie.
So, be sure to catch Scary Movie. Anybody and everybody will enjoy this spoof. Buy this DVD and enjoy.
HAPPY VIEWING!

Hey, Scary Movie wasn't so much of a scary movie afterall. Instead, it is one helluva roller-coaster parody of the recent box-office hits like Matrix and the likes of Scream that promises to bring you a ceaseless 1 and 1/2 hour of nauseous, dizzying, raucous laughter.
Scary Movie not only spoofs hits like Sixth Sense and I Know What You Did Last Summer, it also pokes fun at racism and bimbo-hood, albeit done in the light of humor.
To really enjoy Scary Movie, you'd have to dispose yourself of all reason and rationale and laugh it all down, with some popcorn and coke of course(just make sure not to choke on it while guffawing away). The plot may be thin, but it sure is the one of the funniest movie I have ever seen. Those in hope of a really frightening premise would be sorely disappointed, though.
In all, Scary Movie is the epitome of parodies and brings sexual jokes to newer heights of enjoyment. Way to go!

In this day and age I like to watch movies that help me forget about all the problems of the world and just laugh. This is one of them. It truly shows how moronic the slasher films are. Maybe they went a bit excessive on the bathroom humor but that can be overlooked. I rarely stopped laughing from start to finish and now own this movie and have watched it several times. I recommend this movie to lift your spirits when you are feeling down because beleive me, you will laugh.

This a very funny film which spoofs other horror flix (most notably Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer). If you've not seen those two, I recommend checking them out beforehand that way you get all of the highly-exaggerated and over-the-top references :)

Well, Scary Movie 4 may have a chance, but 2 and 3 did nothing to come close to the hilarity that the first in the series brought (other than the opening scene of 2 where James Woods tries to excersise the hell house...hilarious) This film is more on the lines of Scream and I Know What you did Last Summer and it has almost the identical plot, but what makes it so funny is that is shows you the stupidity in the overly serious tone these horror films take. Scary Movie makes fun of the typical Scary Movie, and it works...I mean, look what it has to work with. Anna Farris is your heroine, and this is her movie...the movie she was meant to star in. The Waynes brothers are also BIG reasons to watch this film, other than hottie Shannon Elizabeth! With Marlyn playing the crack adict who gets high with the killer and Shawn playing the sexually confused jock they have the most memerable charactors in the film. The funniest scene is when they spoof The Blair WItch Project. Everyone was laughing so loud I had to watch it again by myself to hear what the chic was saying. With funny scene after funny scene Scary Movie should be at the top of your DVD pile because for some reason it never gets old.

Scary movie is a fun movie worth a buy or rent. It's a great movie to watch with your friends at a party. It's a spoof off horror movies, mainly I know what you did last summer and Scream. But it also mocks the Blair Witch Project and the Matrix briefly. If you watched Scream and I know what you did last summer, you'll probably enjoy the jokes better. But, the first time I saw it, I hadn't seen either but still found it hilarious. There's not really much more to say besides it's an absolutely hilarious movie that will deliver plenty of nonstop laughter. This movie throughout delivers a constant amount of laughter and afterwards, you'll be telling your friends about the great jokes.
