Goofs

(at around 57 mins) When Sid is practicing in the theatre as Cassandra, she lowers her veil around her head and overlapping in front of her as she says, "Save to speak the truth." When the shot goes wide she is still lowering her arms. She is also looking straight ahead in the closeup yet her head is tilted left and downward in the far shot. See more »

Good Enough!
21 February 2001 | by famousgir1See all my reviews

Well, i did prefer the first Scream BUT that's not to say Scream 2 wasn't good. Yet again it had good performances and the killers in the film turned out to be quite suprising. It was a good sequel anyway. 10/10 Might i just add that Wes Craven is a BRILLIANT director and Kevin Williamson is indeed a great writer.
