3:13 Banana for a weapon.
5:51 “Oh, you mean, Uncle Escobar!”
7:38 Dawson failing not to laugh on his cameo is fabulous.
11:08 Gail Hailstorm.
19:03 I like the guy saying he was fine, not necessary.
28:36 It’s a nice fountain outside the school to sit on, I never went to a school with a fountain.
32:47 Throwing the vase, haha.
35:19 “You’re behind the couch.”
40:58 Incredible that Wassup is such a cultural phenomenon.
43:13 They’ve referenced the movie they’re spoofing within the movie? Is that allowed?
44:46 “But, you know, shit happens.”
57:33 Yep, this is why I don’t go to the cinema!
1:01:52 I love it when people can’t wink.
1:04:37 Fish tank bong.
1:10:05 Gotta say, this is does just make me want to watch Scream again.
1:13:47 “Watching TV shows doesn’t create psycho killers, cancelling TV shows does.”
1:19:57 Didn’t see either of those twists coming.


After ditching the last movie, we ended up with the original intention of watching Scary Movie. It’s better for trying to spoof only one or two films, funny where it needs to be, a bit dated in places but actually comes up with its own great twist at the end that I didn’t see coming.

Rating: 2 / 5
