    One word sums up my feelings about this film and that is, “potential”.
    The story of the main character deserved more detail earlier than elicited. The plot wasn’t marinated long enough to flavor the meat of the thriller and the action of the film falls short of expectation.
    Despite another great performance by Octavia Spencer she couldn’t resuscitate the breathless work.
    Watch it free, or don’t bother.

    Upon a recent viewing of this campy family comedy I must admit I liked it more than I thought the first time I had rated it. Must be mellowing out with age.

    Superbly done homage to the classic Agatha Christie, Alfred Hitchcock whodunnit. 
    Daniel Craig delivers an Oscar worthy leading performance. This is a must see.

    Steve Martin as the dentist  is worth the time investment in this off-broadway horror-spoof turned movie.
