You Either Love It Or You Hate It!
on 18 January 2004
'Scary Movie' is one of those films that you either love or hate and in turn your opinion of it depends on your taste in comedy. If you like dirty, gross humour then this film is perfect and you should get it. However if you are not so keen on this humour, then this is not the film for you.
The storyline is basically about a group of teenages who are still guilt-ridden from their car crash where they murdered a man and now, one year later, they are being chased by a crazed masked man with a hook, who seems content on killing them one by one.
If you have seen such films as Scream, I Know What you Did Last Summer, Blair Witch Project and The Sixth Sense then you have a head start in this film and you will understand the jokes much better, because Scary Movie has just taken bits from all of these film, and made them funny.
This film is an absolute treat for anyone who likes 'dirty' comedy because thats basically what most of the jokes are. If you are buying this under the impression that it is scary (i know the title is misleading) then i must just warn you that it is not scary, mainly because you spend half the time laughing and when somthing remotely scary happens, it just isn't believeable. Not that this is at all a bad thing because this film is about laughs. If we wanted to see a scary flick we would watch Scream or The Exorcist and if we wanted to watch somthing amazingly funny, we would watch this film.
