The movie per se, if I don't look at the inconsistencies, won't be really that bad, and one can afford to watch it, after putting the brain in some locker. But if the brain functions, one would start asking questions.
Why, Louise, supposed to be not only in love, but even secretly married, would flirt with all and sundry ? In fact whose daughter was Louise? It was mentioned that she wasn't the professor's real daughter, does it mean she was his step-daughter ? In that case she would have been complicit in the crime (which could explain her flirting), but that wasn't brought out. In fact, how could all the victim fail to recognize the murderer ? There can be no circumstances, under which one could say that they have not seen the person, at the scene of the original incident which prompted these crimes, and in their guilty conscience, that would have been permanently etched.
The thriller (attempt at) had been through forced creation of situations. Naturally considering the physique of the murderer and the murdered/ attempted, the strangling, even through a rope, would have been difficult and the poison, could have been sourced through Louise, I don't see how else.. The murderer wasn't a chemist, nor probably the other one, on which the fingers were pointed, probably was. Louise wasn't only a senior chemistry student, but had a free access to the lab.
Even in the end, just to put the audience on edge, the phone wasn't picked up. With the murders taking place, one after other, won't one ?
These are only some of the glaring inconsistencies. If I start listing all, it would take up all the space.
On the positive side, there are quite a few catchy songs, and the comedy sequences, some of them, are believable situational, and thankfully, without loud acting by either Eddie or June.
