      Globe and Mail Rated: 2/4 Apr 12, 2002 Full Review Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle Rated: 3/5 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times Its deadpan humor is entertaining, up to a point, but that point is passed before the movie is quite at its halfway point, and then we're left watching increasingly desperate people who are trapped by one another's madness.

      Audience Member This movie was crazy. This cougar takes harassment to another level. This movie was crazy. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member The movie might have been bearable as purely a work of fiction. However, it was based on a murder committed by a pedophile, who seduced and killed the two victims. In fact, he assaulted the daughter at their final picnic before stabbing her through the heart. To have a movie portray this as not only a vehicle for a heroic young man as victim, but as a "dark comedy" is unconscionable. It would have worked much better as a close-to-the-facts drama. Surely the real story was strange enough. Horrible. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member A very crazy and unusual romp through '50s England. Take a look and be astonished at where the film takes viewers. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Read all reviews
