Did You Know?

Trivia:
The cameraman played by Dan Joffre is called Kenny. Not only is this a reference to Scream, where the cameraman (W. Earl Brown) in the movie had the same name, but is also the last name of Francis Kenny, Scary Movie's cinematographer.

Goofs:
Continuity: When Miss Mann gives the safety tips, an African-American girl stands behind her. That girl puts an article of clothing on, but she stops and leaves it curled up around her neck. The shot changes to the girls, then back to Miss Mann. This takes about four seconds. When it gets back to Miss Mann, the girl in the background is fully clothed and is standing relaxed and listening to the speech.

Quotes:
Deputy Doofy: Mom said that when I wear this badge you're supposed to treat me like a man of the law.
Buffy Gilmore: Yeah, and Mom also said for you to stop sticking your dick in the vacuum cleaner!



User Review

Lighten up and enjoy!

Rating:

I'm not sure what the people who dumped on this film were expecting, but I found it entertaining. I am a fan of good horror and good satire, so I was able to recognize and appreciate the jokes.

True, this film relies a bit much on poddy humor, but at the same time, there is a cleverness in the way all the films being spoofed (and there are many) get twisted together and played with here. Some of the slapstick and sight gags do fall flat, but the movie is quick paced and the satire is fun. If you don't go in expecting Shakespeare, you'll enjoy it. And you might even get some Shakespeare.
