|Scary Movie [HD]||—||—||—|
Buenavista Scary Movie (Blu-ray)This hilarious, must-see comedy smash places Carmen Electra (TV's "Battlebots", Marlon Wayans ("Senseless", Jon Abrahams ("Boiler Room," "The Faculty"), and some of today's hottest young stars in a wickedly funny send-up of today's most popular horror movies! A familiar-looking group of teenagers find themselves being stalked by a more-than-vaguely recognizable masked killer! As the victims begin to pile up and the laughspile on, none of your favorite scary movies escape the razor-sharp satire of this outrageously funny parody! With Shannon Elizabeth, Shawn Wayans, and Cheri Oteri adding sidesplitting performances, there's nothing to fear in this scary movie ... unless you're afraid of laughing too much.
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
I just don't get it? This movie is stupidity. How come someone would want to produce this type of film? Not funny at all.Published 25 days ago by c-A=S-s=y
This is a much appreciated addition to inventory of things that make my life as easy as one would like to have it. Read morePublished 27 days ago by Victor Taitt
It might be personal but I didn't see any artistic merit or a more-than-commonplace story line and so my interest waned shortly after the movie began.Published 28 days ago by Adolph Menendez
