The spoofs keep rolling in as the Wayan Brothers step out of the way and let director David Zucker take over for the franchise. This time the jokes aren’t nearly as gross as they were in the first two films, but eventually the skits become as tedious they always do. The plot is a cute takeoff of recent box office hits The Ring and Signs, with the delightful  returning as a television reporter who discovers that a scary videotape is killing the people who watch it (the opening sequence with  and  as the overly breasty teenagers is the film’s best). Along with her telepathic son and cute, 8 Mile-wannabe boyfriend (), Faris investigates this phenomenon and its connection to the crop circles that were found outside the farm of a rural priest (). Most of the jokes make for terrific bits in a commercial, but strung altogether the effect wears you out and some of the jokes are so stale as to hardly produce a smile.
