Trivia: The movie is riddled with side conversations about whether or not a sequel can be as good or better than the original. This is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the movie itself, since people believed that a sequel to "Scream" wouldn't be as funny or successful. However, most people didn't completely 'get' one line when the movie first came out. During the frat party, the second "Star Wars" film is mentioned in this argument, saying that it had better writing. The reply to that was, "Doesn't count; it was not a sequel, it was part of a trilogy." This was once again a reference to Scream 2, since it too was part of a pre-planned trilogy (when Kevin Williamson sent Scream to studios, he also sent along outline scripts for the next two movies).
Trivia: Courtney Cox Arquette also plays Monica in the hit TV series 'Friends'. Did anyone notice how two of the actors she stars along with in that series are mentioned in the film? These are Jenifer Aniston (who plays Rachel) and David Schwimmer (who plays Ross) Watch out for both of them.
Trivia: In the scene where Cici Cooper, the sober sister, is watching TV in the house she says to her friend on the phone that Sarah and Bailey broke up - obviously talking about a TV series. She must mean Bailey and Sarah from the series "Party of Five" where Neve Campbell plays a significant role.
Trivia: When Cici and her friend are talking on the phone about 'Party of Five',they are insulting the character of Sarah and commenting "That girl needs to get her shit together". These lines were written for Jennifer Love Hewitt, who plays Sarah Reeves and was originally supposed to play Cici, and weren't changed when Sarah Michelle Gellar was brought in instead.
