Scream 3

The last installment of the tongue-in-cheek (but still scary) horror trilogy finds Sidney Prescott again battling a crazed killer -- only this time it's on the set of Stab, a movie-within-a-movie based on the original Woodsboro murders. Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox), Dewey Riley (David Arquette) and the rest of the Scream gang appear, alongside new characters played by Parker Posey, Jenny McCarthy and more.

Fulfills its modest ambitions by delivering a glib slasher spoof for the mall crowd.
Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle  full review
 
The result is the usual fragmentary mixture of jolts and jokes, knife-wielding maniacs and red herrings.
Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail  full review
 
You're bound to scream -- perhaps real loud -- but it may be out of impatient dismay as much as Pavlovian reaction.
Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle  full review
 
Despite the various surprise cameos and cute twists, it takes itself too seriously and adheres too strictly to its formula to avoid becoming what it parodies.
Mark Caro, Chicago Tribune
 
Unfortunately, there's nothing here that even the most inexperienced horror film fan would call innovative, and the predictable result is a movie that pales in comparison with its predecessors.
James Berardinelli, ReelViews  full review
 
[Wraps] up the trilogy in satisfying fashion.
Steve Murray, Atlanta Journal-Constitution  full review
 
Holds up the honor of the franchise nicely.
Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com  full review
 
New-kid-on-the-block screenwriter Ethan Kruger acquits himself admirably in filling tapped-out creator Kevin Williamson's big, black boots.
Gemma Files, Film.com
 
What began as mildly entertaining reflexivity has degenerated into a mindless barrage of illogical hooey, herrings as red as stop signs, cardboard characters, tepid jokes about movies as life, etc.
Michael Atkinson, Mr. Showbiz
 
Genuinely scary and also highly amusing.
Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times  full review
 
The only thing the movie kills with any decisiveness is your time.
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly  full review
 
Funny and brisk.
Elvis Mitchell, New York Times  full review
