We didn't feel the need to check out what the general public thought of Scary Movie 3 and Scary Movie 4. They looked awful, we hadn't heard a single decent thing about either movie... plus, we kind of had to watch the movies for the blog.
Rotten Tomatoes still came in handy though, for my own amusement. Whenever I watch a terrible movie, I like to read the reviews on the site. Partly, because I like reading bad movies get ripped to shreds, but mostly because I'm fascinated by people who defend these movies. The reviews for these two movies didn't disappoint.
I generally reserve reviews that positive to movies that contain no more than zero nutshots. Let me stress "generally." I'm sure there are plenty of tastefully done nutshots done out there. I can't say I've seen every movie on this list, but of the ones I did see, I can say that there is plenty of hilariously inspired comedy to be found on that list, but very few nutshots.
Please let me know if I'm forgetting any.
Benefit of the doubt, I'll say it's the first one and that I agree with this statement.
Except for that part where it's claimed that Scary Movie 3 is "actually funny."
I guess I'm just confused by the statement because I never thought that society could be split up in that way: people who think Mother Teresa commemorative bobbleheads are funny and people who don't.
If you've spent even a fraction of your time dissecting this one-sentence review, then Scary Movie 3 is definitely not for you.
Interesting. Critics liked Scary Movie 4 slightly more than they liked its predecessor. However, the audience, I guess, started to have it with the Scary Movie franchise and looked at it slightly less favorably.
Again, maybe this is just a difference of opinion, but I kind of have to disagree.
It was a very slow 83 minutes. And when it was over, I scoffed at the idea of watching the deleted scenes.
- Scary Movie 3 — and not Scary Movie 2 or the first Scary Movie — came close to absolutely killing the Scary Movie franchise, and
- Scary Movie 4 — which, in my opinion, is pretty indistinguishable from Scary Movie 3 — undid all of that damage caused by its predecessor, making the franchise workable once again.
While this person claims that Scary Movie 4 is five times as funny as Scary Movie 3, it should be noted that 0.08 is five times more than 0.016, but neither number are very high. So saying that one movie is five times as funny as another doesn't really mean much if the original is barely funny at all.
I'd like to also point out that five times zero happens to be zero, so that means even less.
Clearly, it doesn't matter what I think, because they're apparently going to keep making these movies.
Unfortunately, readers, you'll have to wait another nine months for this film to come out. A good way to pass the time would be to vote in this week's fight between Theodore Roosevelt and Baxter Harris.
