    Surprised and Shocked

    I happened across this movie this evening while going through my HBO channels and decided to give it a watch. Jamie Lee Curtis playing a psycho is pretty convincing. I liked this character for her because it worked. I did miss the first 10 minutes, but the rest of it, I felt, was very good! Yes, somewhat predictable, but still a good movie all in all. Prior to this, I'd never heard of this movie, and am thinking now of purchasing it.

    Jamie Lee gets to be baaaaad

    After having played so many 'nice girl' types in movies for a long time, it's not surprising that Jamie Lee Curtis thought it would be good fun to be bad. She's actually more than bad in this turkey, she's utterly despicable, and we never really find out why. She leaves her husband and three small children but we never know the reason. Some darkness in her childhood is alluded to but it's still not a compelling explanation for her behavior. When she comes back to reclaim her family, she goes from a bit neurotic to majorly psychotic in no time flat and it just doesn't make sense. There are a couple of visually arresting moments, but the 'thrills' are predictable and tepid, and the characters mere cardboard cut-outs. Only the oldest son, Kes, is somewhat interesting as the troubled, conflicted pawn in the game, although he too doesn't come across like a real person. The ending is a yawn and the whole proceedings reeks of low-budget and no inspiration. Cobbled together and lacking in humor, charm, or creativity, this one is, in my humble opinion, a complete waste of time.
