When we last saw Chucky (voice of Brad Dourif), the murderous, carrot-topped doll possessed by the evil soul of a serial killer, he was doing the nasty with his plastic lady-love, Tiffany (voice of Jennifer Tilly), ending THE BRIDE OF CHUCKY with the promise of Chucky's spawn. This third sequel in the popular "Child's Play" franchise finally makes good on that frightful promise. Chucky and Tiffany have had a child, but unbeknownst to either and for reasons never made entirely clear he's been living as an orphan in London, forced to sleep in a cage and exploited like no one since the Elephant Man by evil ventriloquist Psychs (Keith-Lee Castle). The child, whom Psychs refers to simply as "Sh*thead," is a gruesome-looking thing, all big blue eyes and sharp piranha teeth. But he's a gentle soul, tormented by extremely violent nightmares and the pain of knowing nothing about his birth parents; all he has to go on is the "Made in Japan" stamp on his inside wrist. One afternoon, while watching Access Hollywood, "Sh*thead" catches a segment about "Chucky Goes Psycho," a new movie based on an urban legend about a pair of possessed dolls responsible for a string of brutal killings. When "Sh*thead" sees the "Made in Japan" brand on the arm of the prop "Chucky" doll which turns out to be the real thing he knows he's found his daddy. Meanwhile, in Hollywood, the film's star, one-time Oscar nominee Jennifer Tilly (cheerfully playing herself), now reduced to appearing in killer-doll movies, is ready to do whatever it takes to win the role of the Virgin Mary in rapper-turned-director Redman's (also playing himself) version of the life of Christ. Just as they're about to close the deal, Chuck, Tiffany and their newfound child arrive on the scene with a bizarre plan to impregnate Tilly with Chucky's sperm. It's been a long time since there was anything scary about Chucky; he's been a figure of fun rather than fear for most of his 16-year career, so it doesn't really matter that the film makes no great sense. The jokes are lame, but the good-natured Tilly gamely goes with the flow and the effects are actually quite good. In the end it's simply another Chucky movie whether that's a recommendation or a warning is entirely up to you.
