“The fact that Jennfier Love Hewitt says no to something, speaks volumes for the film’s value, don’t ya think?” – Clint Morris

A great script – or in this case, a ‘good’ script – doesn’t always mean a good movie – as “I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer” so plainly illustrates.
Whilst Michael D.Weiss’s script is actually rather imaginative, and even manages to breath ‘some’ new life into an ostensibly dead series – nobody expected that, right? – By coming up with something fresh and ‘different’, he’s been let down by the other parties. There’s an ensemble that’s clearly only there to ‘eat’ not to ‘act’, and a budget that doesn’t allow for any shockingly fun death sequences – something the film really calls for. After all, what’s a good teen slasher film without a good decapitation or noose slip?
The reasonably witty script plays out like a lampoon – as in, the events of the previous two films have been put down to no more than Urban Legends – that ultimately liquefies into ‘same ol, same ol’ territory, by midway through. In a nutshell, it fixes on a group of teenagers – the girls, of course, get around for the most of the movie in nothing but tight fitting tank tops. Somewhat of a constant in the “I Know” movies – who find themselves harbouring a deep, dark secret – a friend, pretending to be gutted by another friend, playing the killer fisherman, is killed for real (by, obviously, the real fisherman), but knowing that the authorities won’t believe their story, they decide to just stay mum – and later are stalked and consequently, knocked off one-by-one by a mysterious figure with a hook, seemingly, the killer fisherman from the stories.
The film will keep die-hard teeny-horror fans interested – if only because it is the third instalment of a pretty popular film franchise, and many will simply be interested to see what they’ve done with it – but that doesn’t mean even the fans won’t be hoping Jennifer Love Hewitt – or even, for that matter, Muse Watson, who played the original killer fisherman! – make an appearance before the screen goes black. Which they don’t. The fact that Jennfier Love Hewitt says no to something, speaks volumes for the film’s value, don’t ya think?
