Having graduated college, the hapless Cindy Campbell has become a television News Anchorwoman. She is directed to investigate the mysterious crop circles on Tom Logan's farm, and discovers the eerie secret behind the death of a close friend. Along her journey, Cindy pays a visit to Orpheus, who explains to her that she is The One, and prophecizes that she must help the U.S. President to prevent a full scale alien invasion against the country.

After a disappointing sequel this Dimension Films film franchise comes back with a third installment promising more crude humor, an all-star cast, and the funniest spoofs since the original. 

The first thing you'll say after watching the film is "Who wasn't in this movie?". You have Queen Latifah as the Oracle from the Matrix, Pamela Anderson and Jenny McCarthy as schoolgirls, George Carlin as the architect of the Matrix, Simon Rex as a white rapper, Anthony Anderson as Simon's flamy cohort, etc. 

Parents will be pleasantly surprised by a lack of unnecessary sexual content which helped the film receive a PG-13 rating that should boost attendance among the under-25 demographic.

Another nice thing about the movie is the exclusion of the Wayan Brothers. Unfortunately the Wayan Brothers style of comedy doesn't really suit this type of movie. Most of their antics are relatively outlandish and unnecessary which really threw previous installments off on comical tangents. More or less this movie is a spoof where the parody is the focus of the situational comedy. The Wayan Brothers on the other hand use their comical talents to add a couple of laughs to the scenes inbetween the spoofs, but unfortunately the same comical reactions got played out after the first film.

Without the Wayan Brothers the movie really coalesces around the spoofs and provides solid entertainment for 90 minutes. If you have seen just a couple of  mainstream movies in the past year you'll probably find enough laughs to validate seeing this film.
