Trivia

Due to the movie Kazaam (1996) being relatively unknown by the French audience, and despite the fact that Michael Jordan's performance wasn't panned by the critics, the infamous reference to Shaquille O'Neal's acting was changed in the French version: when Carmen Electra's character is asked by the killer what her favorite scary movie is, she replies Space Jam (1996). When told that the film is not a horror movie, she replies, "Yeah, well, you've never seen Michael Jordan act." See more »

One of the funniest spoofs ever
7 July 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Scary Movie is now (it was a little while ago it was Me, Myself & Irene) my favorite comedy of the year. This film gives another word to the spoof/comedy genre, and even though it doesn't make a breakthrough like Airplane!, it is still very, very funny. Sure it's not for everyone, but for those who have seen all the scary movies parodied in this film (example- Scream, Scream 2, I Know What You Did Last Summer, The Matrix, The Sixth Sense, The Blair Witch Project, Halloween, The Shining, etc) and can enjoy a good comedy, this film is definitely for you.

But the plot is unexplainable, but the jokes are. The spoof follows in the Wayans bros. tradition (this film is directed by Keenan Ivory Wayans, written by Shawn and Marlon Wayans, produced by all three, and starring all three) of they're last spoof- Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood. Jokes include a guy who acts very gay but isn't (Shawn Wayans) a pot head (Marlon Wayans) and some other characters (Carmen Electra's cameo is my favorite). Also, the references to movies but not parodies are still funny. Very sick, very crude, very funny. The funniest film of the year. A+
