Much better than I expected.,
This review is from: Scary Movie 3 [DVD]  (DVD)
I saw Scary Movie 1 and 2 but didn't like either, particularly the original film. So I was not exactly looking forward to seeing this movie, but I am happy to say that it is much better with some really good moments in it.
It seems much less crude to me, though that may just be my imagination, and this helped a lot. The plot was quite clever and a lot of the jokes were good. Often in these films the jokes are more hit than miss. I saw 'Reposessed' and that was truly terrible, very embarassing and almost none of the jokes worked. I was expecting the same for 'Scary Movie 3' but happily it was not the case.
Leslie Nielsen appears in the film and is not too bad. Ever since the 'Naked Gun' movies he only seems to be in poor to average movies which is a shame as he can be really funny. He was very bad in 'Reposessed', probably his worst ever. Happily he doesn't have too big a part in this. When is he going to find a worthwhile film.
The bonus material was also worth seeing, including a completely different alternate ending. It genuinely was a totally different ending, drawing heavily on 'The Hulk' and 'The Matrix.'I prefered it to the ending used in the film. There were a couple of reasonable documentaries and some good outtakes.
I was really surprised how much I enjoyed this film, though it might partly have been because I was wasn't expecting much.
