Armando B (au) wrote: It's a fun involving concept, but it tends to weaken in the mote you think about it. The dialogue seems a bit out of place for high school, but otherwise this is a great movie, good concept and intense and exciting. So for that being said I give this movie with a good performance from Joseph Gordon Levitt, I give "Brick"a C.

John D (ru) wrote: An exceedingly average movie, but not a painful one to sit through. I don't think Joshua Jackson is capable of acting for a moment in his life, but thankfully Donald Sutherland saves the film to at least make it average. There is just nothing worth noting about the plot since it has been done before and better many times. As usual, Flixster's synopsis is inaccurate and not very correct.

Chris O (nl) wrote: One can call this a film only by virtue of the fact that it was shot with a CAMERA. This finger-shaking, overbaked mess contains some of the most over-written, sign-posty dialogue ever created. And Toni Collette is ABYSMAL. I don't know what the attraction was to this work, either in stage or film form, except that there are probably so many miserable and unhappily married people out there that they find themselves transfixed by this, as if it's the relationship version of a train-wreck. Sure, if you like long-winded meditations on the nature of monogamy and you don't have time to read a self-help book about it, sit through this. If you want to watch an actual dramatic movie that holds your attention for any other reason, avoid this AT ALL COSTS.
Jared B (es) wrote: This is garbage. It takes the classic story and pads it with mind numbingly stupid plot elements and annoying dialogue. And the makeup effects, while detailed and unique, make the characters look rat like and hardly charming. Kids might like the bright colours and goofy noises, but adults would be better served just watching the 22 minute cartoon with Boris Karloff.

Matt G (gb) wrote: There's a comfort in watching a movie in which you know nothing bad is ever gonna happen. But what puts this one in an upper level of re-watchability is its unexpectedly great dialogue...I could watch Reynolds and dat stache quip all day long. Delightful and endlessly fun 70s pulp, full of fun car stuff and heaping amounts of LOL stupidity.

Brandon W (kr) wrote: I enjoyed Matchstick Men, it focused more on the characters then the con which really succeed for me. It would've not worked if the characters were boring, but the acting and the writing was great, Nicolas Gage is awesome for being bonkers, and also being a lovable and sane dad. Sam Rockwell and Alison Lohman are great too and weren't overshadowed by Nicolas Cage. For the ending, I think it's a hit or miss for every viewer that sees this, people would think that it ruined the whole movie, or it shocked people, making it more fresh than it was. I'm more towards the hit side, I can understand why people would go towards the miss, but for me, it's a hit. I'm glad that I saw it, go see it if your a Nicolas Cage or a Ridley Scott fan.
Jesse O (nl) wrote: I do not know if this review will be very long, but I'll see what I can do. This isn't your typical 'evil babysitter' movie, which is really just a variation of the 'evil caretaker' subgenre that we, honestly, as far as I can tell, we don't get many movies from. In many ways it's also a home invasion thriller, though the film does throw in some small little twists so it's not so straightforward of a movie. The plot is pretty simple, Emelie, the sitter, and this man she knows, who is never named, kidnap and kill the real babysitter so Emelie can pretend to be her. She's basically doing this to find the perfect kid for her to kidnap and raise as her after her own baby died in an accident, that was her own fault, but an accident nonetheless. To find out who's the perfect kid for her, she does these tests, if they can even be called that, which are pretty fucked up. Well one of them is pretty fucked up. What I liked about the movie isn't the fact that it's realistic or anything of the sort, but the story itself is far more believable than just another movie where all the sitter wants to do is kill the family for no real reason whatsoever. I can buy a mother, who's also unable to conceive another child, being so emotionally distraught at the death of child that she would go to the extreme of pretending to be someone else in order to kidnap a child she can call her own. Like I can buy that far more than other films that share similarities to this. The film does go, like I mentioned, to some pretty dark places. The darkest scene would definitely have to be the one where Emelie shows the kids a sex tape of their parents. It was obviously shot in a way where the kids were probably watching something else, but just the idea that Emelie would do this makes her far more detestable and devious than if she had something far more straightforward like I don't even know honestly. But it does work in creating this really effective villain, a villain who's intellectually more manipulative than she is physically threatening. It also helps when you have Sarah Bolger doing such a great job with her character. It's not like I think she's one of the elite actresses out there working right now, she may be at a later point, but she's really fucking good in the role and she adds so much to the character. But, again, this is a role that's more about the smaller details about the character and what makes her tick and not necessarily about her being this Jason Voorhees-type, though the ending makes her look like that. Though, in this case, I can understand that she would live through what happened, since it wasn't that bad. So yea, I thought this was quite a good movie. I wouldn't go as far as to say that it's really good, but as far as a believable horror film, one that taps into some pretty universal themes, particularly for those who are parents, this is a good movie with an excellent performance from Sarah Bolger. I'd definitely recommend if it ever hits Netflix or if you have a free Redbox rental.
