Jeremy N (it) wrote: I get the sense that there was some greater social commentary and some sort of satirical slant to this film, but it was as pulseless as it's subject matter and by and large just plain BORING. The greater allegory the director was aiming for was lost in a clever premise and lackluster production/acting/writing.Meh.

Seth P (mx) wrote: To start off, yes this movie is very very explicit, which is why it caught my eye... So instead of analyzing I will jump right into it... For me the biggest thing for a movie is cinematography. An audience has to see what is being show, they have to see it in a certain way to convey the message of the story, and the audience has to see the actors they came to see. For this movie its biggest drawback is its cinematography. The film wanted to look a certain way (Grindhouse'ish... or dark gritty) but kind of fails. The film would have been better if it were shot clean, somewhat bright, and easy to see (kind of like 'American Psycho'), so you can see the violence and vice, as is you have to squint to see scene that are important to the plot...I am not saying this movie should copy from other movies, I am rather say that a movie should learn from others and adapt to new and innovative ways. For a movie like this rather than being story driven, it is based more on its harsh grimy imagery. If it fails to frame shots with adequate lighting to see what is going on then something is wrong and a movie is no longer a movie.The psychotic serial kill vibe was beat to death... when the film had to one up its self and virtually turn to the audience and say "he's a psycho, he will kill anyone, because he is a psycho, and crazy, did we mention he was crazy" the tension is lost and the character looses creativity, subtlety is bliss, build tension, slowly elaborate and make the audience see for themselves rather than throwing them into a whirlpool of insanity... It wasnt a completely bad script, the main character is shown to have flaws (the flashbacks were more interesting that where he is presently). The setting was interesting, even though it was on the verge of off putting since it is so hard to attach oneself to these characters... The seedy vibe of the movie was good but was laid on too thick (when the cleanest and calmest part of the film takes place in an 'Adult Book Shop' as it is getting robbed, then the tone is a bit over baring, which will turn off even the sickest of crowds. I was surprised to see both Tony Todd and Gunnar Hansen (both horror legendary actors)... The gore was accurate and looked very realistic. The nudity was nonchalant, and on the verge of overwhelming (if you have seen this movie, you have to admit there was nudity where nudity didnt need to be shown). The ending wasnt really surprising, it seemed like a cop out. Rather than explaining how everything falls into place and where characters are, it just jumps over that, no clarification on what happened, who's dead, was culminated from the numerous high profile murders... it just ends at an awkward point... Its kind of a let down, and makes me want to watch a better serial killer movie, like 'Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer'...
Jane L (us) wrote: I remember my parents wanted to see this so I ended up watching KICKING AND SCREAMING with them when I was seven. It sucked then and sucks now. Will Ferrell is overacting and yelling to the max, and the script is terribly unfunny. It's pointlessly cruel with unlikable characters, and it's about as alienating as a film can get. Avoid.
RaraRafIqah F (gb) wrote: Another classic Molly Ringwald movie. However, as compared to her other movies like The Breakfast Club, this movie was lacking in my opinion. The storyline wasn't really great but Molly Ringwald's acting was indeed top class. Overall, still a good movie but not great compared to her other movies.

Timothy K (de) wrote: Like every other Esther Williams film, the same plot form is recycled. This time around it's mildly entertaining. Other than the thrilling and exciting looking choreographed water performances, the film lacks sensible characters. The whole debate of which man for her to end up with is ridiculous. Her choices are poor and seem to be made for all the wrong reasons.
