Goofs

When Sidney, Dewey and Gale meet Martha, Gale does not know who she is. 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 »

YOU! Like I'm ever going to win an award playing YOU!-Parker Posey in Scream 3
28 December 2003 | by briabbaSee all my reviews

Welcome back Neve, David and my personal favorite, Courteney, to one of the best horror series ever to hit the big screen. All three are back and are in top form. As a huge FRIENDS fan, it's always fun to see the non-Monica, Gale Weathers, and to see another side of Cox-Arquette's talent.

The finale in the Scream trilogy, and while perhaps not the scariest of the three, it is certainly the most funny. That is thanks largely to the brilliant casting of the satiric roles belonging to Parker Posey and Jenny McCarthy.

Parker Posey playing Courteney Cox Arquette's "Gale" in the movie Stab 3 within this movie, Scream 3, was a stroke of genius. For those not familiar with Posey's work I strongly recommend checking out "The House Of Yes."

Another welcome attribute to this third and final (?) chapter in the series is the way in which they tie up the loose ends and allow certain characters a sense of closure.

You definitely need to view these 3 in order, but it's all scary fun!
