I was very skeptical of this film, in prime part because of my distain of the Wayans Brothers who in MHO have always been short on talent and long on wind. Scary Movie did not change my opinion. Though it had its moments (and thats all they were, moments!) it was the most ignorant thing I've seen since Star Wars Ep. 1: The Phantom Menace. It began quite well, actually. But it soon fizzeled out and became a drawn-out SNL skit... and the worst possible one at that. I do not have a problem with spoofing horror films. But, I prefer references to those in which they spoof, not hard-nosed purgery! And Scary Movie was nothing more then widely accepted purgery! An insult! I loved Pandamonium and Splatter High, but the major differance is painstakingly clear when one watches them. They refer to their source material. They do not RIP OFF SCENE FOR SCENE and word for word that in which they spoof. Scary Movie did just that, over and over and over. Adding a few sex jokes to the dialogue doesn't make it original, it doesn't make it 'your own'. Purgery by any other word (spoof?) is still purgery. Dimention Films and the Wayans Brothers should be sued! So what if Dimention made the Scream films. Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven should be raising holly hell over this shit! The Scary Movie DVD has a repulsive, and offensive little behind the scene featurette that quite frankly pissed me off. Here we have a horde of low brow, no-talented brothers trashing Scream, I Know and Urban Legend calling them "stupid." How interesting, considering the crap they made. Can Scary Movie be classified as anything but "stupid?" No. And, consider also that it took six morons to write it. Count that, 6! Six guys sat down with the scripts to Scream, I Know and Urban Legend and fucked them up! Wow, I'll bet having a conversation with these guys is about as stimulating as playing patty-cake with a downs-syndrome child. By so blatently trashing their source material, they left themselves open to ridicule. In fact, the writers of Urban Legend, I Know and Scream should have gotten writting credit on Scary Movie, hell most of the scenes were lifted directly from the scorce films! Hell, the title isn't even original as it was the original title of Scream. As a horror fan I was highly offended by these assholes. I am frankly sick and god-damn tired of everyone trashing the horror genre... then making a living off it! And now were going to be treated to Scary Movie 2. Yeah, I'm so looking forward to this. ------------------ -David "Didn't they tell you Kirsty, the rules of the fairy tale have changed.
