    This was by far the worst comedy I have seen. So incredibly painful to watch. The movie was way to hyped up and I was really disappointed. The scenes that are supposed to be funny need more editing as they just drag on. I spent half my time fast forwarding through it. Really pointless. We all know that it will end with a happy ending. So incredibly predicable. Who are this critics anyway that give it such a high score??? Expand

  1. Based on the novel by Ruth Rendell, the film could do well with audiences who have a taste for creepy films about murder in the suburbs.

    At 74, Chabrol is in full possession of his talent for elegant, understated filmmaking, though he's far from his disturbing films of the '50s and '60s.
  3. Chabrol sets us up, of course, which is half the fun, and the experience is a delight for lack of pomposity (his visual storytelling remains no-nonsense) as well as genre expertise.
