SCENE 13 of Scream 3
Length: 3mins 57secs
Primary Characters: Detective Kincaid, Gale Weathers, Dewey Riley, Sidney Prescott
Pop Culture References:
- Kiss Me Deadly and Murders in the Rue Morgue (posters on Kincaid's wall)
I love that Kincaid (or, ya know, the set decorator) has a newspaper clipping on the wall headlined "A 'Nice Vice'". I can only imagine that it's a puff piece about himself that he hangs on the wall in prize position near posters for old scary movies like Kiss Me Deadly and Murders in the Rue Morgue.
|"Who knows more about Maureen Prescott than her own mother?"|
Er, considering you just admitted that Sidney once identified the wrong killer in court and that it's documented Sidney didn't know her mother's scandalous past before Tatum went all Richard Gere on her, you're probably not gonna get much out of her.
Also: 2000 was a popular time for baggy dress shirts, wasn't it? Christ, even I had some at the time. They were my "formal" look. LOLOLOLhate.
|"Do you wanna have this conversation with a polygraph?"|
|"Was that a threat, Detective?"|
|"When it's a threat, you'll know it."|
|"Was that a threat?"|
|Boys, boys, let's compare our gun calibres later!"|
Also: It was a complete accident that I paused the video on that moment with Courteney's face doing... whatever the hell it is it's doing. I'm not sure what it is, but you never can tell these days with her face.
Sid making a superstar entry into the LAPD station, of course.
The music in this reunion scene between Sid and Dewey, as well as Sid and Gale directly afterwards in Kincaid's office, is really terrible. It's thick like syrup like everybody on the production forgot where they were and decided to make it into a scene from a TV movie about a kidnapped girl being returned to her mother 20 years later. Or something. What would I know?
So apparently Neve Campbell is on Grey's Anatomy now? Or she was? I'm not sure. Anyway, she gave an interview where she discussed working about with Patrick Dempsey and it just reminds me how strange is seems now for the man to have been cast in Scream 3.
Did you have fun reuniting with Patrick Dempsey, having done a Scream movie together?
CAMPBELL: Yeah, it was really fun! I hadn’t seen him since Scream, so it had been at least a decade. He’s a great guy. They’ve been on that show for nine years, so they definitely know what they’re doing. It was fun to be around a group who have been working together for so long.
Any chance of there being a Scream 5?
CAMPBELL: We’ll see. I’m not sure they’re going to make it, to be honest. If that were to come up again and they were to approach me, I’d have a chat with them about it.
I think in this scene, amongst some others, you can really tell Neve Campbell wasn't entirely with it on Scream 3. I don't mean "with it" in the sense that, say, Lindsay Lohan isn't with it anywhere anytime anymore, but "with it" in the sense that she probably didn't feel particularly inspired about making the film. Her role was already reduced significantly, almost to a supporting role for half the run time, and here she barely seems to raise a pulse as she finds out her mother is a significant part of the investigation. She was, however, totally "with it" in Scream 4 in case you're wondering.
Of course, upon seeing the photographs Sidney asks to go to the place they were taken. That means two things: a) more amazing Gale and Gale murder investigations, b) the worst cameo in the entire franchise. The worst everything in the entire franchise, actually. I shudder just thinking of it. We'll get to that next time though.
