The Wayans brothers give way to slapstick master David Zucker for this third installment of the horror spoof series. But don't expect Zucker to stick just to horror this time, as everything from Lord of the Rings to Eight Mile is up for skewering.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that, as usual, the MPAA gives a PG-13 rating to material in a comedy that would get an R-rating in a drama. The movie is heavy on exaggerated cartoon violence (decapitations, knifings, comically brutal fights, zombies, and phony scares). The film's comic sensibilities rely on potty humor (pooping, peeing, farting, vomiting, snot), sexual innuendo and suggestive visuals (dogs copulating, large jiggling breasts, bare butts), and low-brow parody (racial stereotypes, a pedophile priest, people with disabilities). There are fewer obscenities than in the earlier films, but still plenty of "s--t," "ass," "bitch," and an occasional "f--k." Drinking, drug use, and smoking are occasional, intended as over-the-top humor.

Sexual Content

Very explicit for a PG-13. No actual sexual activity other than some slobbery kisses and shots of dogs copulating, but innuendo along with sexual language, jokes, and leering are frequent. Opening sequence pays "homage" to the voluptuous breasts of Pamela Sue Anderson and Jenny McCarthy. There is implied off-camera molestation, a comic sequence of someone having sexual intercourse with a chair, and references to menstruation, oral sex, masturbation, and Internet sex tapes.


Slapstick throughout. Characters (including one hapless little boy who is continuously battered ) are decapitated, hit by cars and falling objects, knocked out, crash through windows, shot at, kicked in the groin, and attacked by corpses and zombies. There are fist fights, brawls, gun battles, knifings, bloody bodies, appalling seizures, and chainsaws.


Very strong language for a PG-13. Primary obscenities are "s--t," "ass," "a--hole," "bitch," "damn," "f--k," "ho," and one use of the "N" word. Lots of on-camera "comic" vulgarity (vomiting, snot, poop, peeing) and sexual jokes (i.e., "Your period starts in 3...2..." and "It's so hard..."). Schoolchildren listen to a sexual discussion.

Social Behavior

Some racial humor. There are jokes about drinking, smoking, drugs, sex, race, drunk driving, pedophile priests, gang shootings, barfing, menstruation, testicular cancer, bestiality, and people with disabilities.


The Coors Light twins appear. Yahtzee, Blockbuster, Webster's Dictionary.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Two dogs are shown smoking marijuana. Lots of beer drinking and some drunkenness at parties and a rap concert. Characters smoke, one very heavily. Reference to a birth in which the mother was drunk and using crystal meth.
