    Vince Vaughn is so laughable it's his best comedy since "Swingers". This is a pointless remake that is below all other remakes, not only is it guilty of being a shot for shot copy of the Hitchcock classic taking no artistic chances with the material to steer in another direction whether or not it's good but i'd rather see that than the exact same movie the came out in the 60's and theVince Vaughn is so laughable it's his best comedy since "Swingers".

    Just, see the original. It's better. Marion was weird in this one, and it just seemed duller. Maybe, knowing this is a preserved classic makes the original a whole lot better.

    The movie is an invaluable experiment in the theory of cinema, because it demonstrates that a shot-by-shot remake is pointless; genius apparently resides between or beneath the shots, or in chemistry that cannot be timed or counted.

    The movie doesn't stink. The performances are good, potentially great, especially Vince Vaughn as Norman Bates.
  3. In the shock department, the ante has been upped, way up, and a mere kitchen knife through a shower curtain just doesn't cut it any more.
