(nl) wrote: Very slow moving and not very scary. It has s few moments of creepiness and some adequate acting, but the direction is very pedestrian.
(gb) wrote: Well.. this movie was disturbing. The idea of the movie was interesting thou.. but to watch it again.. I don't know. The deaths were too disturbing. The synopsis tells it all. The movie was well played and the camera was really neat. The outcome was weird and I agree with those few people who's recenze I was reading that it was weird the movie didn't said much about those two little girls, the movie starts with.
(kr) wrote: 5.5/10. In spite of Guy Pearce's enigmatic performance, the film is too slow moving and strange to be successful. Lili Taylor is once again bland, but she does give a decent performance. I am supposed to care about some obsessed nutcase that carves the name of her idol with broken glass on her forehead? Don't thinkl so! Pearce does his own singing and is quite good.

(gb) wrote: The ultimate 'pick-me-up' movie, guaranteed to put a smile on your face. It's light-hearted cheeky British postcard humour at it's best and a must for any fans of great comedy. I would say it's in the top 3 of the Carry Ons also, along with Carry On Abroad and Carry On Doctor.

(ag) wrote: Meh. Enjoyed it thoroughly at the start but then felt it got a bit overly cheesy towards the end (why does every single one of these movies require a speech in front of an audience of spectators about how much you love the person that you've split up with in order to get them back?) Honestly, the last half an hour I didn't enjoy at all. Thankfully the early part of the film is very enjoyable.
