What could possibly be more irreverent, funnier and, well, scarier than SCARY MOVIE 3? SCARY MOVIE 4, of course! It’s about to ignite, insult and induce uncontrollable laughter in audiences everywhere! Writer/director David Zucker and writers Craig Mazin (who also serves as a producer) and Jim Abrahams have re-teamed to push the limits of comedy in this latest instalment of the wildly successful franchise. No block-buster movie or pop culture icon is safe from their zany humor: “War of the Worlds,” “The Grudge,” “The Village,” “Saw,” “Saw II,” “Million Dollar Baby,” “Brokeback Mountain” and more are all mercilessly spoofed with hilarious results.
This time around, the ever-naïve Cindy Campbell (Anna Faris), seeking a career in home healthcare, finds work with a creepy old lady (Cloris Leachman) in an even creepier old house haunted by a ghostly presence. Throw in a good-looking guy next door and the threat of aliens intent on global domination and Cindy’s instantly up to the top of her extremely blond head in danger. Our fearless heroine catapults into action once again struggling to decipher ominous messages from the beyond, looking for love in some very weird places and trying to save the world from mass destruction. As she struggles to discover life-saving answers, Cindy encounters horrific plane crashes, bodacious blind girls, village idiots, dishevelled rappers, kinky contraptions, psycho survivalists, alien sphincters and even Oprah! It’s a relentless movie theatre invasion of non-stop, fall-on-the-floor-laughing jokes.
The cast of SCARY MOVIE 4 includes Anna Faris as fledgling home healthcare worker, Cindy Campbell, Craig Bierko as Cindy’s love interest - the handsome, dumb-as-a-sack-of-hammers, Tom Ryan, Regina Hall as Cindy’s best friend, the savvy and outrageously promiscuous Brenda, Leslie Nielsen as the President of the United States, Bill Pullman as Henry, the stern leader of “the village,” Molly Shannon as Tom Ryan’s very ticked-off ex-wife, Chris Elliott as “the village” idiot and Carmen Electra as blind-villager Holly. The film also features Dr. Phil, Shaquille O’Neal, Michael Madsen, Cloris Leachman, Anthony Anderson, Kevin Hart, Chris Williams, Alonzo Bodden, David Attell, D-Ray, Chingy, Lil’ Jon, Young BloodZ and Fabolous. The movie is produced by Robert K. Weiss (SCARY MOVIE 3, all three “Naked Gun” movies, “The Blues Brothers,” and “Kentucky Fried Movie”).
