Scary Movie isn't the highest brow comedy you'll see all year but it does have its funny moments. There are some scenes that will make you want to turn your head and run from the theatre and others that will have you rolling in the isles. Taking its main lead from the Scream movies, it makes fun of everything from The Blair Witch Project to I Know What You Did Last Summer. Here's the plot: a small-town high school is terrorized by a hooded killer with a mask inspired by the tormented visage of Edvard Munch's famous "Scream" painting. The film focuses on three couples, principally Cindy (Faris) and Bobby (Abrahams), intent on persuading her to go all the way. Shannon Elizabeth's Buffy and Lochlyn Monroe's Greg are the glamourous pair and Shawn Wayans and his girlfriend Brenda (Hall) are very funny. There are some very good moments in this film, some of the situations are hilarious and others downright disturbing, but if you can handle it make sure to stick around till the end of the credits.
