Scream 3

Stupidity: For Sarah's murder to work, a lot of coincidences and unpredictable, convenient behaviour from the victim have to happen; she has to Miss the security guard and not hear them, she has to seek shelter of all places right in the costume room full of effigies of the killer, where the killer himself happens to be posing, she has to be completely inefficient at calling help with her cell phone.

Stupidity: Scream is always considered a parody of the genre; many deaths are grounded in reality, but the one at Jennifer's house it just isn't, since for that to happen the killer needed to know that one of the guests he scared out of the house would have to go inside the kitchen (a different room, further inside) to look at the remaining page, be unaware of the gas and light something to see it, instead of bringing it outside or using a portable flashlight like it happened earlier. None of that was predictable.

Stupidity: The killer manages to surprise Stone talking to him on the phone in the middle of the night without Stone managing to hear him; he was outside the trailer with the open door. (00:42:00)

Continuity mistake: When Sidney is first going into the house for the end of the movie it is clear that she is not wearing the vest underneath her clothes and as she is walking around or when she is rolling on the ground fighting with her half brother you see her bellybutton but then she has the vest on and it goes over the belly button

More quotes from Scream 3

Trivia: Kevin Williamson (who had written the first two films, as well as the fourth) had an entirely different plot in mind, which he had outlined and given to the studio, only for it to be passed on. His original concept had the killers in the film be members of a "Stab" (the film-within-the-film) fan-club, who orchestrated the murders in order to gain fame and become heirs to Sidney Prescott's status as the soul-survivor. Aspects of this unused original story treatment were re-written into the fourth film, which features a killer whose motivation is fame and becoming the soul-survivor.

Question: How does Roman find Sidney's info for the crisis hotline? We never see him use Dewey's phone and I don't think it's possible he attacked Neil because Sidney would've found out about it.

Answer: Just because we never see Roman use Dewey's phone does not mean that Roman could not have used it to trace Sid. Also just because we never see Roman attack Neil does not mean he didn't. Though the phone way is more likely.
