| An average horror/thriller flick
Mr. DeNiro, Bob, my future sugar daddy, the actors of all actors, what has happened? You're still great, but I mean, this was just too average and not in your league at all.

Sorry, I had to get that out. I'm very disappointed, everyone at my work told me that this was a great movie, and I wasn't that excited to tell the truth. These past few years we've released some "big surprise twist ending" movies: The Sixth Sense(good movie), The Others(pretty decent), Signs(Alright), and The Village(bad bad bad!). Now, not that I'm totally upset with this flick, I mean Dakota is becoming a fine actress. We have to admit, she is very talented for her age. She's very believable and cute to watch. But a lot of this movie leads up to nothing and has nothing to be excited or jumpy over. It has a story, but it wasn't delivered right. I mean, this is an A-cast: Robert DeNiro, Elizabeth Shue, and Amy Irving. I guess it just wasn't that interesting to me.

If you enjoy these surprise thrillers, you probably enjoy it. But if you've seen one surprise ending thriller, you've seen them all, right? I should take my own stupid advice.
