  1. What enriches the recipe is that no one is quite as cagey as they seem. Colin is officially thuggish, but he's a blinkered romantic. Archie is a mama's boy, Meredith is gay, Mal is impotent, and Peanut wears dentures.

    The best reason to see 44 Inch Chest is simply to behold some of the finest actors working today, especially Winstone -- who can embody winsomeness and menace in one sweaty, unkempt glance -- and the woefully underemployed Dillane.
  3. 60
    A very strange, often terrible affair that is nevertheless mesmerizing, in a limited way.
  4. It's an interesting spectacle, but not enough to carry a movie.
  5. 50
    Think of 44 Inch Chest as a piece of chamber music and you can compensate for the thinness of its story and the lack of visual distinction.

    44 Inch Chest gets by on the quality of its performances.
  7. 25
    There's a difference between exposing misogyny and crassly exploiting it.
