However, earlier in the film, Dewey and Gale discuss how Gale lived with him in Woodsboro until after he recovered from the injuries he sustained at Windsor College. Therefore, Gale would no doubt have met Martha, a close friend of Dewey's, already. Martha even tells them: "We miss you in Woodsboro, guys." See more »

Welcome to the final act!
10 February 2000 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Scream 3 will not disappoint fans of the first two unless your expectations are unrealistically high. All the Scream movies follow a pattern - one of the criticisms I read of Scream 3 was that it was a Xerox copy of the first two - but all sequels are basically remakes of previous films that preceeded it e.g. the Bond series. The success of the Scream films is that Craven and Williamson (and now Scream 3 scribe Kreuger) have blended the ingredients differently each time - you'll definitely enjoy the "Hollywood" flavour of this one!
