I thought it was okay enough. There was lots of stabbing and lots of jokes about how meta the whole thing is, so it was pretty much exactly what you'd expect. Or at least what I'd expect, as someone who hasn't seen the earlier movies since they first came out. I went in with low expectations and they were met. Mostly I wanted popcorn.
Alison Brie is cute in anything. And she's good at cussing.
I was sad every second that Courteney Cox was on screen and not being stabbed. I feel the same way about Cougar Town.

Shit, I felt the same way about Family Ties and Friends.

I'm pretty in the same boat as Mr. James199 (except for the irrational Courteney Cox hate). After Scream 3, there was no way I was going to expect this movie to be as good as the first one. All I wanted was some fun deaths and clever dialogue, and I got that, so I was happy.
Like with Scream 2, I thought Scream 4 was going along decently until the ending. The reveal was ludicrous and really brought the rest of the film down. The acting was pretty bad, although the girl from Heroes was actually great in her role as was McCauley's brother Rory.

I am kinda surprised that there isn't a thread about this already, but whatever. I liked it for what it was. It is not the Wrath of Khan or Empire that was promised by the studio, but it is a good fun film.
