Goofs

(at around 1h 5 mins) When Sidney goes through the door that leads to nowhere, she holds on and grips the wall frame. She could not have closed the door from her location because it was almost fully open and out of reach (though some viewers have claimed she could have used her foot). See more »

Quotes

Sidney: It's happening again.
Mr. Prescott: Cotton had a lot of enemies, Sid. The police aren't saying it's related to us.
Sidney: Do you ever think about her?
Mr. Prescott: Your Mom?
Sidney: None of this would've happened if she hadn't... if she hadn't... Why'd she have so many secrets, Dad?
Mr. Prescott: Listen, I think, maybe, it's time that you came home. I'm worried about you, kid. Out here all by yourself, you don't go anywhere, you don't see anyone. The only people you talk to don't even know your real name. It's as if you don't exist.
Sidney: That's the idea....

Welcome to the final act!
10 February 2000 | by Elliot-7See 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!
