It still has problems. Everything I said still holds true. It's still too meta for its own good, and a bit too up its own tailpipe of mythology, but the plot is actually pretty clever, works for the movie, and works from a storytelling point of view. The big reveal is actually set up and dodged well during the movie itself...
I still would have taken things in a SLIGHTLY different, darker direction, but overall, it was a fun movie.
I really ought to revisit the first Scream movie, since I recall thinking it merely ok, if not outright disliking it, depending on my mood.
