For the initiated, the third time's a charm. For everyone else, it's just a scream.

It's a pleasant surprise to note how good Scream 3 really is.

Variety
A crafty and well-crafted wrap-up that really does bring a satisfying sense of closure to the franchise.
70
But it IS enjoyable.
60
Time
Not so good is the absence of hip cross-references to the classic horror tropes.

Baltimore Sun
Even if Scream 3 lacks the punch and verve of the first two installments, it manages to wring some ironically metaphysical comedy from the movie-within-a-movie motif.

Entertainment Weekly
About the only thing the movie kills with any decisiveness is your time.

Chicago Sun-Times
Essentially an interlacing of irony and gotcha! Scenes.
30
Dallas Observer
It's time to run, screaming.

TNT RoughCut
First rule of a film trilogy: Part 3 sucks. See "The Godfather 3,"" Alien 3,"" Jaws 3." Even "Return of the Jedi" was just a rehash of "Star Wars" with muppets. Add Scream 3 to that trend.
