It’s unbelievable that director Jim Sheridan (In the Name of the Father) and a cast including Daniel Craig, Naomi Watts and Rachel Weisz couldn’t put together a movie worth watching. Craig stars as an author who moves into his dream house with his wife (Weisz) and kids. But things are not as they seem, as evidenced by the strange looks they are getting from the neighbor across the street (Watts). The filmmakers probably wanted this to be something like The Sixth Sense or The Others, but the film reveals its big mysteries long after the viewer has figured things out—and the big mystery is a big dud. It’s hard to see somebody like Watts wasting her time in a useless role. I’m sure she thought she was signing on for something good given the director’s credentials. Hell, I thought I was in for something good given the director’s credentials. I was very, very wrong.
