The star and the more overwrought aspects of the plot are mainstream but the philosophical implications will not appeal to those who prefer easily digestible cinematic portions. It's also true that the more deeply one considers the movie's themes and structure, the less sense it makes.

A supernatural thriller that keeps your attention while failing to hold you in its grip.

Pay real money to see this feeble fiasco only if you're in the mood for "Groundhog Day" without the laughs.

The real horror here is watching Sandra Bullock drop her big Miss Congeniality smile to A-C-T! She does this by not smiling. What happened to the range she showed in "Crash" and "Infamous?"
