Peter Travers: 'Scream 4' Doesn't Hold Up to the Original 'Scream'

The first 'Scream' movie in 11 years is too cute and overly repetitive

By |

Peter Travers says that Scream 4, the first movie in the Scream series in 11 years, is overly repetitive and too cute about its meta jokes. While it does have a few clever ideas involving social networking and a cast of cute girls including Kristen Bell and True Blood's Anna Paquin, it just doesn't come close to the quality and novelty of the original Scream movie by Wes Craven from 1996.
