Film / Scream 4

Go To

Scream 4 (2011) is the fourth film in the Scream franchise.

It's been over a decade since Sidney last defeated Ghostface and is now living a quiet life in Woodsboro. At the 15th anniversary of the original Woodsboro massacre, another killer surfaces to target not only Sidney, but a new generation of teenagers.

This was Wes Craven's final movie.

This film provides examples of:

  • 15 Minutes of Fame: Jill's motivation for the killings.
  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: Ghostface's knives have always parted flesh easily, but this film gets an exceptional example when a police officer is stabbed through the forehead nearly up to the hilt in a 'hard poke' stabbing motionnote . With some lucky angles the human skull can deflect BULLETS.
  • Actor Allusion:
    • Gale and Rebecca's conversation has Rebecca bring up how surprised she is that Gale and Dewey's marriage worked as well in real life as it did in the Stab movies. The actors who play Gale and Dewey, Courteney Cox and David Arquette, are married. Also becomes Harsher in Hindsight when one remembers that the two of them separated not long after filming on Scream 4 was wrapped — and that the main thrust of Dewey and Gale's story is that their marriage is falling apart.
    • The cop Hoss says "it sucks to be a cop in movies, unless you're Bruce Willis". His actor Adam Brody had starred alongside Bruce Willis in Cop Out - playing a cop again.
    • Kirby makes a joke about having "powers", clearly a nod to Hayden Panettiere's role in Heroes.
  • Anyone Can Die: The marketing has strongly teased the possibility of series regulars getting killed off. They don't, though all of them come close.
  • Ax-Crazy:
    • Jill Roberts. Perhaps more so than any of the previous Ghostfaces.
    • Chloe as well, considering that she brutally stabbed Rachel over talking too much during Stab 6.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: Jill and Charlie are the joint-killers that donned the Ghostface identity here, the latter for his love towards Jill, and the former to make herself a "sole-surviving hero", getting the fame that comes with the title. Jill soon proves that she's the dominant one, disposing of Charlie to fulfill her own plan.
  • Bittersweet Ending: Jill and Charlie's plans are foiled. However, all the new characters, save for Judy (and possibly Kirby), are dead. Sidney, Dewey, and Gale come out injured but still kicking, having survived yet another Ghostface killing spree. The media are convinced that Jill is a hero, and one wonders how Sidney is going to take having to tell the world that her own family member was playing them all like fiddles, and was committing the murders herself.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: Kirby (blonde), Jill (brunette) and Olivia (redhead).
  • Bloodier and Gorier: Some parts of the movie are far more gruesome than the original trilogy. Olivia gets a brutal and drawn out death, and her room is a bloody mess when Sidney finds it. Perkins gets stabbed in the head and walks around slowly dying. Kate gets a rather gruesome death too - stabbed in the throat through her letterbox.
  • Bond One-Liner: Given by Sidney to the killer.
    Sidney: You forgot the first rule of remakes, Jill: Don't fuck with the original.
  • Book-Ends: Given that Scream 4 was meant to be a start of a new trilogy, the following book-ends are unintentional although appropriate.
    • The film series begins and ends with a killing spree in Woodsboro.
    • Scream begins with a blonde girl answering horror movie questions to save her love interest. Fittingly enough, Scream 4 ends with a blonde girl answering horror movie questions to save her love interest. The blonde and her love interest die in both examples.
  • Boyish Short Hair: Kirby has very short hair, that's used to show her as a Ladette.
  • Bus Crash: Neil Prescott is said to have died in between this and the third film by producers.
  • The Can Kicked Him: Variation. Dewey gets clocked in the head with a bedpan.
  • Call-Back:
    • In the opening murder, Ghostface weaponizes the garage door against Jenny as a nod to Tatum's death in the original Scream.
    • Jill is given a forearm wound when escaping the killer, which mirrors Derek's in Scream 2.
    • Charlie is tied up and Kirby is forced to answer horror trivia to save his life - which Casey did for Steve in Scream. The framing and use of outdoor lights for the scene even echoes that original scene quite effectively.
    • Trevor climbs into Jill's bedroom window, which Billy did for Sidney in Scream. Sidney lampshades this somewhat.
    • When Jill and Charlie reveal their patsy, Trevor, he's in a closet, tied up the same way Sidney's father was in the original, even wearing a similar outfit (jeans, t-shirt, denim jacket.) Once again Lampshaded asking Sidney "Remind you of anything?"
    • The line "Jill, how does it feel to be a hero?" is a slight adjustment of the same line from Scream 2: "Sidney, how does it feel to be a hero?"
  • Cash Cow Franchise: invoked While Stab was entering this with the third installment (the first not based on real life murders), the fact that it got to 7 installments - one of which has time travel - shows it went down the "grab a quick buck" path rather easily.
  • Casting Gag:
    • Erik Knudsen not only was in the second chapter of the Saw saga (the fourth chapter of which is mocked in the the Stab openings), but also starred in the CBS TV show Jericho the lead of which was none other than Skeet Ulrich, who played Billy Loomis in the first Scream. Even more surprising or by sheer coincidence, his name in Scream 4 is named Robbie Mercer, which sounds a lot like the name of the character (Bobby Mercer) in Four Brothers who was played by Mark Wahlberg, the brother of Donnie Wahlberg, who played Knudsen's father in the second Saw film.
    • Deputy Perkins is played by Anthony Anderson - who starred in several of the Scary Movie films, which parody the Scream franchise.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Apparently Sidney and Detective Kincaid broke up, but this isn't mentioned.
  • Continuity Reboot: Parodied. The film satirizes reboots and remakes (much like the original films satirized slashers, sequels, and trilogies) complete with a cast of characters meant to be new versions of the original cast.
  • Dead Star Walking: In-universe examples (maybe). The Film Within a Film Stab 6 has Lucy Hale from Pretty Little Liars getting offed. It's then followed by Stab 7 showing Anna Paquin from True Blood suffering the same fate. And then in the 'real' scene, one of the two victims is played by Aimee Teegarden from Friday Night Lights.
  • Death by Sex:
    • Apparently, averted. The trailer states that "the rules have changed. Virgins can die now." In the trailer,note  this is then promptly used by Kirby for a Take That! at the girls sitting next to her:
      Kirby: Does that mean I'm not gonna live as long as these two?
    • The answer seems to be "Yes," but it's never definitely stated she gets it, except by Jill — who has a vested interest in her being dead, and who wasn't on the scene when it happened so it's likely she's only assuming it's such.
    • If Kirby actually died, it's a weird inversion — she died for not having sex (with the eventual murderer of all people, as a Moment Killer ruined their advances on each other).
    • This is played straight by Trevor, who is mentioned to have had sex with Jill (the killer!). This one is especially ironic, given that Trevor and Jill are Billy and Sidney expies, respectively, and Sidney survived having sex with Billy (also the killer) in the original.
  • Diabolus ex Nihilo: The motivation of Jill Roberts has nothing to do with Maureen or avenging previous killers, which was really all dealt with by the end of the trilogy. This killer's motivation? A lot more simple and selfish (see 15 Minutes of Fame above).
  • Distaff Counterpart: Kirby, for Randy from the original.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: The ending has Jill, the new version of Sidney in this copycat of the first film's murders (i.e. a remake of Scream), trying to kill and replace Sidney and claim her fame for herself. In other words, it's the remake defiling the original film and displacing it in the public eye. And Sidney is not happy.
    Sidney: You forgot the first rule of remakes, Jill. Don't fuck with the original.
  • Drinking Game: At the Stabathon, one of these is occurring.
  • Drives Like Crazy: Kirby's first moment on screen is breaking the speed limit in front of Dewey. He sighs "Kirby", implying this is a frequent occurrence.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Jill, especially in the scene where she's self-harming to make herself look like a victim of the killer.
  • Evil Plan: The events of the film were all planned out by Jill, who wanted to kill Sidney, frame Trevor, betray Charlie, and come out the Final Girl of the movie so that she could have the same fame and hero worship that Sidney got for surviving her first three ordeals. The Moral Event Horizon is crossed when she decides that, in order to be more convincing and sympathetic, she had to kill off her own mother, in addition to Sidney.
  • Final Girl:
    • Subverted and invoked. Charlie and Jill are the last of the new characters left standing but are also the killers, and their plan was to gain fame by making themselves the survivors of a killing spree. It is further invoked when Jill kills Charlie and stabs Sidney in an attempt to be the lone survivor; however, it then becomes a double subversion when Sidney survives the attack and kills Jill in the hospital.
    • With the fact that Charlie and Jill are the killers in mind, Kirby can be considered a straight/subverted example of this as she is the last of the innocent new characters to be targeted by Ghostface, but her fate is left ambiguous. It also helps that she is both virginal and smart, traits of a traditional final girl.
  • Foreshadowing:
    • At the afterparty, most of the gang are drinking alcohol. But Charlie is hitting a Red Bull, both to stay sober and to keep energetic while killing.
    • As a name, Jill is a remake of Billy, give or take a few letters. As a character, Jill is the remake version of Billy, give or take a few differences.
    • A lot of Ghostface's conversations with Sidney fall into this. In the first call, he taunts Sidney by asking her if she still thinks she's the star of Ghostface's new "movie". In the second call, he tells her how important family is.
    • Charlie tests Kirby's horror movie knowledge as preparation for a second, more deadly horror movie quiz.
    • When Trevor meets everyone else at Kirby's house, his clothing is similar to that of Neil Prescott when Neil is revealed as the scapegoat in the original film.
  • Gay Guy Dies First: Double Subverted in this film, which discusses the "Horror Movie Rules" in regards to which characters will die first. Robbie, who is himself implied to be gay, suggests that because of Positive Discrimination in more recent films, gay characters are actually far more likely than straight characters to survive to the end. He tries to invoke this when confronted by the killer, whose wordless reaction is basically "Are you for real, dude?", and kills him anyway.
  • Geeky Turn-On: Charlie and Kirby over the latter's impressive collection of horror movies.
  • Girls Are Really Scared of Horror Movies: Subverted. Kirby has a big DVD collection of horrors.
  • Groin Attack: Jill to Trevor. With a gunshot.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: The big twist is that Jill is the real killer as she wants to be famous just as Sydney was as the sole survivor of a murder spree. Ironically, the film's end indicates she does get her wish as she becomes famous all right once the truth of her spree comes out.
  • I Never Said It Was Poison: Dewey realizes that the supposed Final Girl, Jill, is the real killer because she mentions that she and Gale have "matching wounds". The details of the killer's assault on Gale had not been revealed to the public, so Jill would have no way of knowing unless she was the one who attacked Gale. While there is the possibility that the details of the crime got leaked and she heard about them, any news report must've aired, presumably, after Kirby got Jill from the house (since Kirby left before the attack) so the chances for that were minimal. Robby and Charlie were too freaked out from the attack, given that they believed their lives would go to shit thanks to the attack happening at an event THEY were throwing. They were right.
  • Impaled Palm: Ghostface stabs Olivia through the hand when he attacks her.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: A cop is stabbed in the forehead. And still lives long enough for some Black Comedy Famous Last Words.
  • In the Blood: The Roberts family. Both Sidney's half-brother Roman and first cousin Jill turn out to be psychopathic murderers.
  • Ironic Last Words: Of the dramatic variety. Kate's last words as she is killed by Ghostface is to say "Tell Jill I'm sorry." What she doesn't know is that Jill is Ghostface and is the one who killed her.
  • Kill and Replace: Jill's plot is to kill Sidney and take her fame as the Final Girl. On a metatextual level, her plan can also be seen as metaphor for remakes trying to do this to the original films.
  • The Lad-ette: Kirby, a brash, snarky, tomboyish horror buff who makes the first move on a timid boy she's into.
  • Made of Iron: Holy crap, Jill. The girl scratches herself, pulls out her hair, stabs herself in the shoulder, runs her face into a glass picture frame, and then throws herself through a glass coffee table. At the hospital she's still able to start up another rampage, nearly killing Sidney and Dewey. A defibrillator to the head only momentarily slows her down. It isn't until she shot directly in the heart that she stops. She's probably the toughest killer yet.
  • Matricide: The new Ghostface willingly kills her own mother to replicate the missing-mother motif that Sidney Prescott had to live with.
  • Moment Killer: Oh, Trevor, why did you interrupt the geek getting the girl?
  • During the climax, it is revealed that the killers were streaming their murder spree over the internet through hidden cameras in the hopes of getting famous. Jill specifically had seen how her cousin Sidney won 15 Minutes of Fame after surviving multiple killing sprees in the three prior films, and wanted a piece of the action for herself. Her Motive Rant even has her discussing building an online fanbase by posing as the heroic Final Girl.
  • Mythology Gag: The film also has several events (seen and/or referenced) that are Shout-Outs to previous films in the series. For example, Jenny's chase scene echoes both Sidney's first encounter with Ghostface in the original, and Tatum's death by garage door.
  • Near-Villain Victory: Jill nearly gets away with her plan, except a) Sidney survives her attack and b) she mentions how she and Gale have matching wounds, despite the fact that she should have no way of knowing that. In a way, she still wins... even though she dies, she achieves the fame she always wanted. The final shot in the movie is her corpse, with the faint sign of a smile on her lips as the news reporters describe her in glowing terms. This is before the truth will hit later that Jill was the one engineering the whole show. So she'll be famous alright, just not in the way she envisioned.
  • Never the Obvious Suspect: Played with. Because of the movie's remake theme, viewers would probably expect Trevor, the Billy Expy, to subvert his Red Herring role just like Billy did in the original Scream. However, one of the new rules of horror remakes is that "the unexpected is the new Cliché" since the audiences are familiar with the rules of the originals. Thus, Trevor ends up becoming one of the victims while the Randy and Sidney Expies, who would be victims in the original film, end up as the killers. In addition, the other obvious suspect, Judy, turns out to be one of the heroes.
  • Not Quite Dead: A rare heroic example — Sidney, who was presumed to have been killed, managed to survive after all. Wild Mass Guessing also claims that Kirby may have survived and just hiding.
  • Offhand Backhand: Sidney pulls one by casually turning and shooting an attacking Not Quite Dead Jill with a handgun.
  • Offing the Annoyance: Kristen Bell's character from Stab 7 who kills her friend for "talking too much".
  • Older Hero vs. Younger Villain: What ultimately the climax comes down to. Sidney is well into her late 30s at this point while Jill is likely at least 18-19. Granted, Sidney is more then experienced at dealing with Ghostface killers and gives Jill and Charlie a hard time when they're masked. The only reason Jill nearly wins is because she does manage to get a mortal blow on Sidney during the events at the house, who is too weakened to fight back when Jill comes to finish the job at the hospital when she finds that Sidney is still alive. It's only due to Jill's arrogance and Gale managing to stall her long enough that she loses in the end when Sidney zaps her with the defibulator pads. Finishing Jill with a gunshot for good measure.
  • Oh, Crap!: Gale and Dewey upon realizing that Jill is the killer.
  • Outlaw Couple: Charlie thought that he and Jill were this. Unfortunately for him, Jill was looking to play the Final Girl instead. Emphasis on Final.
  • Plot Armor: Discussed in regards to Sidney. She still has it.
  • Police Are Useless: Hoss and Perkins are nowhere to be found while Olivia is being stabbed to death. Really, any cop in this series not named Dewey is hopeless. They even note that police in horror films tend to be worthless, and die. They're right on both counts.
  • Polish the Turd: Parodied in the cast/crew section on the film's website, where all of the actors' bios are heavily glowing, praising their careers. When you read the one for David Arquette, however, you realize that the whole thing's a joke.
    David Arquette is an actor, writer, director and producer whose unique sensibility makes him one of the most versatile talents working in the entertainment industry today, able to segue from comedy to drama with extraordinary ease. This makes David Arquette extremely uncomfortable, because of the fact that he is writing this bio himself and it seems arrogant to boast about his incredible talents in such a way while also referring to himself in the third person.
  • Reality Ensues:
    • In the beginning of the film (after all the fake openings), Jennie tells Marnie that after the third "Stab" movie, Sidney threatened to sue the studio that made the films unless they stopped basing the movies around her and her encounters with Ghostface, so the next five films are fictional stories unrelated to her at all. Also, like any long-running film series, the sequels start to severely decline in quality.
    • As sheriff of Woodsboro, Dewey attempts to keep the lid on Marnie and Jennie's deaths to avoid panic. But when Gale confronts Dewey over the recent murders, she reveals that the details have been already leaked to the internet, not surprising since Woodsboro is a small town with several young citizens connected to social media.
    • After a cell phone and a bunch of bloodied copies of Sidney's book are found in her car, Dewey has to prevent Sidney from leaving out of protocol since this makes her a suspect, despite being a close friend of his and the least likely person to be Ghostface.
    • When the killings start, Sidney's book agent, Rebecca Walters, sees this as a great opportunity to milk Sidney's "wounded victim" image and drive up book sales. However, when she tells her idea to Sidney, who is desperately trying to get rid of that image of herself, and was just attacked by Ghostface, along with her younger cousin and her cousin's friend, Oliva, who ended up dying, Sidney fires Rebecca for her lack of empathy for the victims, as well as her lack of concern for Sidney's safety.
    • Officers Hoss and Perkins keep screwing around when they're supposed to be looking out for the killer, doing things like one of them pretending to be dead while the other is trying to talk to him about a possible break in. This leads to them failing to rescue Olivia from Ghostface and getting killed themselves.
    • When Robbie is attacked by Ghostface, he tries to escape from being killed by saying that he's gay, since horror remake rules say that gay characters can't be killed. Whether he's really gay or not, Ghostface doesn't give a shit and mortally wounds him, because an evil, psychotic killer isn't just going to stop because of some rules established by stupid movies. Plus, Robbie forgot the rule all good tropers know: rules can be broken.
    • Despite giving the killers serious ass-kickings in the last three movies, Sidney is unable to fight back against Jill when she attempts to strangle Sid in the hospital after being previously stabbed in the gut by her, which is a very serious injury in real life. Worse, Jill uses this to her advantage during their fight and Sid's only able to get the drop on Jill thanks to Gale, Judy, and Dewey's intervention and shocking her in the head with a defibrillator. Then, shooting the bitch in the heart.
  • Red Herring:
    • The movie likes to hint at Trevor due to the remake theme and his stealth skills. He really was just trying to protect Jill after all, which makes him closer to a remake of Derek rather than Billy. Too bad she didn't need protection.
    • The movie also briefly hints at Judy. Having a creepy "I remember you even if you don't remember me" conversation in a shadowy hallway ends up meaning nothing. To say nothing of her uncanny resemblance to the actress who played the first victim in the original Stab.
    • Robbie is a more minor example since he is the only character shown with a camera and Charlie claims that the remake Ghostface would be recording the murders and uploading them to the Internet.
    • The remake theme is this. At a first glance, it seems that the new characters are suspiciously similar substitutes to the originals in Scream. While some of the new characters do act as similar substitutions, some of the new characters are not. See the Suspiciously Similar Substitute entry below for more info.
  • Rewatch Bonus:
    • In the beginning of the movie, Kirby jokingly asks Jill to promise not to kill her. And Jill keeps her promise since Charlie backstabs Kirby instead.
    • On a second viewing, it's easy to figure out how Ghostface knew that Kirby and Jill were watching Shaun of the Dead despite hiding in Olivia's closet.
    • When rewatching Jill and Sidney's bonding scene, Jill's statement that she wouldn't have been able to handle the fame and attention that Sidney got as a survivor becomes incredibly ironic.
  • Remember the New Guy?:
    • Judy Hicks, the new deputy, was an old classmate of Sidney's back in high school and says that her and Sidney used to act in plays together, despite not seen nor mentioned in the very first film. Sidney lampshades that she does not remember meeting her at all.
    • Kate and Jill are Sidney's aunt and cousin respectively, on Maureen's side of the family. Her having a sister was never mentioned at all, especially in the third film (which delves into her past).
  • Sacrificial Lion: Kirby and, to some degree, Robbie and Charlie. Though in Kirby's case, she may be alive since unlike the other two they never confirmed she was dead. (On the DVD/Blu-ray commentary track Hayden Panettiere and Wes Craven confirm that Kirby's fate is indeed left unclear, a rarity for a series that likes to make sure we know who's Killed Off for Real. Craven subsequently Tweeted that he didn't think Kirby went to the great big cinema in the sky. See also Executive Meddling.)
  • Self-Deprecation: Jenny and Marnie talk about how Stab 5 had time travel, saying it was a horrible idea. Wes Craven had proposed time travel for one of the Nightmare On Elm Street sequels, but the studio rejected it.
  • Sequel Non-Entity: Detective Kincaid (Patrick Dempsey) is the only surviving cast member from the previous film not to return or even be mentioned despite having become chummy with Sid, Dewey and Gale at the end.
  • Shout-Out:
    • One of the characters is named after Anthony Perkins, who played Norman Bates in Psycho. In fact, the film has several Shout-Outs to Alfred Hitchcock: A character named Marnie, and at least two background references to Rear Window, for instance.
    • The scenes with Jenny and Marnie are given a Color Wash to become blue and red saturated, rather like Suspiria (1977), which is name dropped later as one of the movies Kirby owns.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Subverted like there's no tomorrow. Characters are thrown at us as being replacements for the characters of the original film, but most of the new characters die, the apparent Sidney replacement turns out to be the killer, and we even get a Billy replacement who is almost successfully framed for all the murders.
    • Initially, the movie plays this straight.
      • Jill: Sidney
      • Kirby and Olivia: Tatum
      • Trevor: Billy
      • Robbie: Kenny/Randy
      • Charlie: Randy
      • Judy: Dewey
      • Rebecca: Gale
    • Near the end, the movie reveals the true roles.
      • Kirby: Sidney/Casey
      • Olivia: Tatum
      • Jill: Billy
      • Robbie: Kenny/Randy
      • Charlie: Stu
      • Judy: Dewey
      • Rebecca: Gale
      • Trevor: Neil Prescott
      • Kate Roberts: Maureen Prescott
  • Show Within a Show:
  • Slashers Prefer Blondes: Two blondes Jenny and Marnie are killed off in the opening. Kirby is seen getting stabbed but Word of God is that she survived.
  • Those Two Guys: Deputies Anthony Perkins and Ross Hoss fall under this.
  • Too Dumb to Live:
    • Rebecca. After Ghostface appears on the hood of her car that she has locked herself in and reveals he cut the wires, he disappears when she tries to signal a car down. Instead of staying in the car and calling the cops to rescue her, she gets out of the car and runs for the parking garage exit. Take a guess as to how well that turns out.
    • Robbie may count as well, considering that he went walking outside, alone, drunk, when he knew there was a killer on the loose. Though he may have thought he was safe due to the rules started in the film class scene. Not really the case, though.
    • Perkins gets himself killed, along with Hoss, by choosing to joke around.
  • Trailers Always Spoil:
    • One trailer makes it look like they're spoiling Gale's death, but she survives yet again. It also makes it appear as if Ghostface is in Jill's closet. Not really the case, AT ALL. It did, however, spoil Robbie's death, Hoss' and Perkins's deaths, Rebecca's death, and Marnie's body crashing through the window.
    • Another trailer shows Ghostface attacking Olivia from her closet. And you can throw in Kate's death having been spoiled as well.
  • Trilogy Creep: Scream 3 was hyped up as the conclusion of a trilogy. This film instead focuses on satirising remakes and reboots. A second trilogy was planned, but the low Box Office numbers ensured it remains as a standalone film.
  • Unintentional Period Piece: invoked
    • Happens in-universe with Stab 6, which features Ghostface taunting victims through Facebook. Anna Paquin's character, after watching it, reacts with disgust, calling it a stupid attempt by some hack writer to prove that We're Still Relevant, Dammit!, to which Kristen Bell's character replies "I guess now it would be Twitter."
    • invoked The film also has some meta-commentary on this, with regards to how most of the "rules" from the slashers of the '80s (and, by extension, the original Scream trilogy, which riffed on them) are now Discredited Tropes in 2011.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Arguably Jill goes through this in the end after her plan falls apart and turns to Taking You with Me.
  • Where It All Began: Woodsboro.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Jill's self-mutilation in order to make people think she was a victim, and unlike the last time it was tried, it succeeds.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: Jill gets hit with a minor case of this. She believes the Stabathon was the fake-out ending, making the assault on the house the "real" ending. However, the Stabathon was such an obvious attempt to force a fake-out that it narratively only served as the halfway point of the movie. This means that Jill effectively went into the movie's second act, thinking it was the third.
  • Wrong Insult Offence: In Scream 4 when the killer calls Marnie he says she will die as "you're the Dumb Blonde with the big tits". She responds by saying she's a straight A student (she can't really argue the "big tits" part). She still gets killed though.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: The killer takes out Charlie once he serves his purpose.
  • You Need to Get Laid: Rebecca muses to herself that this is Sidney's real problem.


How well does it match the trope?
