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.

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.

Visible crew/equipment: If you look really close in the background as the killer throws Cici off the balcony, you can see someone sitting in a tree, wearing black, with a camera. (00:33:35)

Trivia: In Scream someone asks Sidney who would play her if they made a movie about her. She said "With my luck, probably Tori Spelling." Tori Spelling did play Sidney in Stab.

More trivia for Scream 2

Question: In the movie "Stab" it shows what is supposed to be reenacting Drew Barrymore's death and looks as if it is just like the one in the first film. But how could it be almost perfect if no one was there to see it?


Chosen answer: In real life, they'd have known there was a phone call involved. They would have known her boyfriend was killed. They could have easily pieced together that the killers played a cat and mouse game with the Drew Barrymore character. But that doesn't account for all the details. Anything else would be speculation. My speculation: Maybe Billy Loomis kept a diary.

And rumor has it that Stu didn't die that he may still be alive.
