Scary Movie 3

scary movie 3I recently saw "Scary Movie 3" and I just wanted to puke in the theater. To me, the success of the trilogy proves that the moral values of society have eroded. In all three movies, the premise was to make a satire from specific scenes of horror movies. Dark humor and grossness replace the horror and fright in the reproductions of the scary scenes.

"Scary Movie 3" was directed by David Zucker and based on characters from the Wayans brothers. The Wayans brothers' slapstick comedy has adult and gross-out themes, and the plot of the movie is dumb and senseless (even the Farelly Brothers have a moral theme in "Shallow Hal!"). The average teen would be better off saving their money to buy a video game and watching a re-run of a Jerry Seinfeld episode. How difficult is it to create humor that everyone can enjoy?

There was an A-list of recognizable celebrities who made cameo appearances throughout the movie -- obviously the Wayans brothers have friends who assisted them with the movie. But what happened to their funny parts? Maybe they should watch "Zoolander" and see how to make a cameo appearance.

As I was watching this movie in the theater, I was yelling, screaming, and shaking my head in pure disgust of what was happening on the screen. I found out later though, that "Scary Movie 3" made $50 million its first weekend. Clearly, gross is profitable when marketing to teens. However, bad taste is bad taste no matter what celebrity is in the movie. "Scary Movie 3" was so bad that I wanted to ask for my money back.
