I don't Catherine Zeta Jones believable in her role, and I found the audience torture part a little dragged out. It did trick me though - best not to know anything at all about what is going to happen before you go so you'll enjoy that part. It's been done before though.

Rich in complex layers, twists and turns that require your full attention, which is a pleasure to do. Many issues are accurately revealed: depression, loyalty, pharmaceutical sales reps, consultant fees, greed, avarice, sociopaths, blind sexual love, self-preservation, and ultimate redemption. The nuances of this film cannot be fully anticipated. Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum, Jude Law, Catherine Zeta-Jones are all excellent! A standout—an intelligent movie that challenge your innate thoughts and emotions. The only weakness was the wife of Jude Law. She portrayed a wife that would easily dump her supposed love. A woman that cares only for herself and lacking loyalty to her man. Do such people exists, of course. But why would Law come back? Very minor complaint, overall a fabulous experience!

We liked it.
Characters developed in a way that kept us wondering well into the film before revealing the twist.
The only thing that would have made the evening more enjoyable would be if 'Die Hard' wasn't playing (loudly) in the next theater.

I heard this compared to Fatal Attraction. Geez! Although it has a great cast, the script doesn't have any real edge to it other than the actual murder scene.

if you must, just wait for it on DVD. The twist is about the only intersting 5 mins of this film.
