Movie Scary Movie (2000)

20180516:
I've seen bits and pieces of this movie before, perhaps on several occasions. In particular, as I watched the movie today, I recognized most of the scenes towards the end: Danny and Cindy make love, Danny reveals himself, Cindy fights the masked killer, and Cindy realizes that Doofy is the killer.

Cindy Campbell (Anna Faris)

The plot is primarily structured around horror films Scream (1996) and I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997).

Overall, while only being familiar with Scream (and not IKWYDLS), I was able to enjoy the movie as it poked fun at horror films.

Netflix determined the movie for me as a 95% match. I decided to give the movie neither a thumbs up nor a thumbs down.

Bobby Loomis (Jon Abrahams)

References Kazaam with Shaq.
Ha. "Then turn to page 54"
Why would she open the door?
Hahahaha. Grabs the banana.
The theme to Dawson's Creek plays and James Van Der Beek (who plays Dawson on Dawson's Creek) shows up. "Wrong set."

Buffy Gilmore (Shannon Elizabeth)

Hahahahaha. "Would you settle for PG-13?" She flashes him and it's disgustingly hairy.
Haha. "I said a dollar, bitch."
Similar to Forrest Gump, "Run, bitch, run!"
Hahaha. "I love when you play with my ass." Punchline.
Huh. They play on his being gay but he also shows signs of being straight.
"I Know What You Did Last Summer"
Haha. The second note.

Doofy Gilmore (Dave Sheridan)

"Miss Fellatio"
She runs the razor across her face, including her strands of hair, but it doesn't cut them.
The camera hits her face.
Parody of the Budweiser Whassup ad campaign!
Oh. Information leaked.
Haha. Her ridiculous run.
Haha. "Hey Gail. Gail swallows."

Brenda Meeks (Regina Hall)

"The police have asked us to give you the following safety tips: Stay in well lit areas, never travel alone whenever possible, ALWAYS wipe front to back, and remember, never EVER believe someone when they tell you that shaving your pubic hair will rid you of crab infestation." - Miss Mann to all the girls in the locker room.
"Come in, dear. Have a seat. Take off your bra if you like." - Miss Mann to Cindy.
OMG. Miss Mann's balls.
Ouch. Breaks her leg.
Uh. Still talking?

Shorty Meeks (Marlon Wayans)

Wow. "What are you waiting for!?!"
Haha. "Take it Brandon, take it."
Parodies The Blair Witch Project.
Hahaha. All that runny mucous runny out her nose.
The trailer is a sequel to Amistad and references Titanic (1997).
Eww. WTF. It went in one ear and out the other.
They list a bunch of movies she's ruined by talking.

Ray Wilkins (Shawn Wayans)

Tries to go through the doggie door, just like in Scream.
Their tongues get tied.
"I see dead people." The Sixth Sense.
Uh. Just make sure she doesn't bite.
Lol. Yeah... (Tootsie Roll)
References The Exorcist (1973) (Cindy's sounds).
Wow. That orgasm.

Gail Hailstorm (Cheri Oteri)

Cindy Campbell: Why are you doing this?
Bobby: Why? Why? You hear that, Ray. I think she wants a motive.
Bobby: Did Scream have a plot?
Ray: No.
Bobby: Did I Know What You Did Last Summer make any sense? Don't think so. And what about the sequel? What the hell was with that fat, white Jamaican kid?
Ray: Oh, I want to kill that motherfucker.
Cindy Campbell: It was bad casting, Bobby.

Sheriff Burke (Kurt Fuller)

Cindy Campbell: You guys are psychos! You've watched too many TV shows!
Ray: No! Watching TV shows doesn't create psycho killers. Canceling TV shows does!
[while stabbing Bobby]
Ray: I mean the Wayans Brothers was a good show, man! It was a good show, but we've never even got a final episode!
Smile. Their death position.

Parody of The Matrix

References The Matrix (1999). (jump, suspension, kick)
Another references to The Matrix. (Bullet dodge)
