Scream 2

Stupidity: Ghostface ambushes Sidney and her friend with the two detectives protecting her while in the car. Ghostface busts out of the driver window, and slashes the throat of the driver detective and then assaults his partner, kicking the crap out of him. Ghostface is obviously going with the intent to kill and has a weapon. He just killed one of the detectives and threw the other in the street in front of the car. When Ghostface jumps in the car to take off, the living detective, beaten, jumps up with his gun trained on Ghostface. But rather than do anything smart, he just yells at the killer, the cop killer, to freeze and get out of the running car that he's standing in front of. He just saw the guy kill his own partner and knows he is intending to kill the girls in the back. His gun is pointed at Ghostface who is about to drive over him, but he just yells at him instead of shooting.

Stupidity: Gale and Dewey review Joel's footage. Joel is technically a professional cameraman working for a local network affiliate. Inexperienced, but he's still working with a professional camera, he has his own van...and yet the footage the two are watching is of poor quality; it would have been unusable for the TV station. The killer's footage, shot with inferior equipment and under more trying circumstances, is the same quality if not better. (01:17:00)

Stupidity: Sidney and Hallie run away as soon as they escape the cop car, when Sidney could've easily grabbed the cop's gun off the hood and shot the supposedly incapacitated killer, or at least held them at gunpoint and removed their mask. (01:30:50)

Stupidity: The campus is on lockdown, police has been roaming the premises, but the killer can just turn on the lights of theater building, turn up the speakers, and nobody except the main characters shows up for it.

Sammo

Stupidity: When the Jada Pinkett and her boyfriend are outside the theater, they are part of a long line. They get their tickets at 9:50, but when they enter the movie, which is in a one-night only sneak preview event, is already running. The event in general is completely absurd especially for a premiere, since everyone in the audience acts like savages (but they shut up Maureen the moment she says something). It is also a movie based on a gruesome tragedy with real people killed barely a couple years before, where they hand stabby props.

Scream 2 mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Hallie takes the remote control off the top of the TV to turn it on. But later when they return in front of the TV to watch the news report, the remote is back on the top of the set. Also, the position of the video console which is also on top of the TV has changed, the position of the clothing on the chair next to the television has repositioned and lastly, the items on the window sill behind the TV set have completely changed. (00:12:20 - 00:13:40)

Mickey: Oh come on Randy, with all due respect, the killer obvious patterned himself after two serial killers who were immortalized on film.
Guy 2: Thank you!
Film Teacher: So, you're saying that someone is trying to make a real life sequel?
Randy: Stab 2? Why would anyone want to do that? Sequels suck!
