Interesting first (silent) movie from Renoir he realized so his wife could have the leading role of Catherine. The movie became an object of quarrel between Renoir and Dieudonné who directed this vehicle together and each played also a part in the movie. Was this a Renoir movie or one of Dieudonné, reducing Renoir to its pupil? The dispute became so heavy 2 versions exist, one cut by Renoir and one by Dieudonné. However the themes are so typically Renoir that I question the claim of the co-director. Like in so many other Renoir movies you see a picture of the relationships between masters and servants, with a clear sympathy for the servants and a great dislike for the hypocrisy of the ruling classes. Also the contradiction between order and disorder (major theme in the complete oeuvre of Renoir) is already present in this first attempt to make a movie.

Heather M (ag) wrote: There is no real reason that 'Everyman' was so popular with the ladies, but it made for a funny story. Poor Ben got himself into all kinds of trouble while trying to do the right thing and make money to pay for his fiancee's dream wedding.

Robert I (ag) wrote: This was the kind of film I really dug in high school. Know what? I haven't changed. I just don't watch movies like this anymore. And I freakin' miss them. A lovely film that may not have the edge of the book, but tons more heart. Kept me laughing and even sentimental. Kelly Macdonald... *loving sigh*

Derrick M (br) wrote: The people who reviewed this are idiots. Everyone is complaining it wasn't original and had so many cliches...that was the point. It wasn't supposed to be a groundbreaking horror flick. It was just putting together a bunch of other horror film cliches and making comedy out of it. They even comment on the lack of originality in the movie. This movie did a really good job of making comedy out of the cliches and that is what made this a movie worth watching.

Chri Elaine P (br) wrote: 4.1 stars. I liked this movie, and Mos Def is a decent rapper turned actor.

Tom S (jp) wrote: Gorgeous film about the corrupting influence of greed.

Valerie A (kr) wrote: I don't really like the story, but I love the song. It's 911's song "Love Sensation"

Mark T (it) wrote: Bad acting, naff special effects and a number of poor casting choices, not least of all Paul Telfer as Hercules who seems to have been cast merely because he looks good with his shirt off rather than any acting ability ! Hercules is not meant to be a pretty boy but a man's man !

Nathan C (nl) wrote: The Frightners is an all time classic with loads of potential and amazing expressions. Peter Jackson is actually better directing this than Lord of the Rings, Even though i loved The Lord of the Rings this hits over the checkpoint.I Liked All That Horror, Suspense, Acting and More.Score: 9/10

Lindsey P (ca) wrote: This is one of the funniest movies ever!

Wahida K (gb) wrote: This Movie was very highly rated, I guess because of the song. Agreed the song Jumma chumma de de was just Awesome but the Movie was DULL!

Zach M (ca) wrote: Half-decent Troma release with sexy girls shooting guns, saving people and having sex. What more do I need to say?

Scott C (it) wrote: I barely remember this. The main reason I wanted to see it was because of Catherine Mary Stewart of 'The Last Starfighter' fame. I seem to recall it being pretty stale.

John P (us) wrote: Amazing early ironic commercial satirical comedy.

Nick K (es) wrote: The core plot of Caroline believing that Steve was still married (simply because she refuses to listen to him) is extremely implausible. Otherwise, it's an OK movie.

David M (es) wrote: A 12 year break is obviously what this franchise needed as this movie holds the fun energetic vibe that the first 3 'Die Hard's are missing. Unlike the first 3, this film is an entertaining thrill ride that holds your attention from start to finish. It looks modern & fresh, the fight scenes are hard-core & the action is impressive - even if it is a bit outrageous.
