Negative—The opening scene is a woman in very revealing underwear. What did it have to do with the movie? Oh absolutely nothing. I don’t remember anything else very morally objectionable. But even from a secular standpoint, no one could like this movie. It was weird, random, and disconnected. It was a murder mystery, with every weird thing added in.

Negative—My friends and I went to go see this movie one night on a spur of the moment kind of thing because the other movie we had intended to see was sold out, and I would not recommend this movie to anyone!! The movie was not necessarily offensive in its morals.

There was hardly any bad language, however there was some frontal nudity of a woman in the first scene. I just did not like the movie because the plot was not very developed and there were very random illogical happenings throughout the entire film. I left the theater feeling disappointed that I had spent my money on this film.

…marginally entertaining [but] can’t even be compared to the classic Charade…

…a jumbled, irritating mess of a movie…

…[There is a surprising] “absence of foul language with only one s-word and a few exclamatory profanities…
