Not knowing who or why, the one thing they do know is if they fail to discreetly collaborate with one another - they will be solely responsible for facilitating the biggest crime in the city's history. Now they must race against the clock to make the choice of their lives - save the city - or save their daughter.

(jp) wrote: Well-directed with good performances and nice cinematography, However, it doesn't have any originality and it seems a little hasty.
(au) wrote: I enjoyed parts of it, jason scott is funny and is quiet a good actor. But the film is clichd and you could tell the ending of the film from the very start. But if your looking for a mindless film to pass the time this would be a good film to watch.
(ca) wrote: This movie's true strength may lie in the abilities of the actors to play their parts with feeling and skill, but the story line is also quite interesting if a bit strange. It has it's slow parts [and the "group therapy" sessions may bring about a laugh or two whether it's intentional or not], but it also has good emotional depth, is aesthetically pleasing, and, as formerly stated, the acting is great; it is definitely a movie worth watching.

(jp) wrote: A interesting early Spielberg film...ie before he made Jaws...and it isn't to bad but it's no masterpiece either.He clearly from the word go had a great sense of entertainment and knows how to make a movie and Goldy wasn't to bad either.Lacked the depth his later films have but still was a fun easy watch....a good solid film, worth a watch if nothing else is on television....
(kr) wrote: PRETTY POISON is a solid little film starring PSYCHO's Anthony Perkins. I had long been wanting to see Perkins in something other than the PSYCHO films, and he didn't disappoint at all in a role that is different from Norman Bates. The strength of PRETTY POISON is the chemistry that is shared by the film's two leads, Perkins and Tuesday Weld. As the plot goes on and becomes more intricate and twisted, it doesn't become the least bit difficult to follow, and Perkins and Weld help to keep the viewers' attention throughout. Their characters' relationship is a very odd one, and it comes off as quite interesting and is really quite memorable, mainly for how odd it actually is, but also because Perkins and Weld are extraordinary in their roles. Director Noel Black does a fine job of crafting this film, opting for a minimalist approach over something overblown and overdone. PRETTY POISON is a fairly low-key film, but it works here. It's excellently shot, with Black opting for more ordinary surroundings for his characters in an effort to show just how truly over-the-top they both are, even in spite of the grounded performances of Perkins and Weld, which only accentuates this point. PRETTY POISON is an excellent film, one of the best I've seen in a while.
