Scream 2

Scream 2 ★★★

It's telling that all the best moments are direct references to the events of the first film. It says less about the effect of movie violence on society than it thinks it does; it says less about the nature of movie sequels than it thinks it does; it says less about the slasher sub-genre than it thinks it does. Unlike the original, the meta-commentary here is entirely self-contained. It thinks it's clever, but it's not much more than forgettable fun.
