This isn't as absolutely bad as some reviewers are making it out to be. To call it the worst movie ever made just shows that a person hasn't watched a lot of movies. Having said that - no, it's not especially good either. There are a few cringe-worthy moments contained within its hour and a half (but, yes, it did seem longer) but for the most part it just kind of meanders slowly along, with very little emotion or passion being shown by either Kate Bosworth or Wes Bentley, who both seemed to have little interest in what they were doing.
They play a married couple (I don't remember any names being used for them.) As the movie opens they're in a car driving down a highway, and there's a young girl (their daughter, you assume) in the backseat. Suddenly there's a horrible accident and the next thing you know the man wakes up in a dim, sparsely furnished bedroom, remembering nothing and being looked after by the woman. From there it, well, just kind of meanders slowly along. You know that something isn't right. Something's off; something's weird. I took a guess as to what was happening - and I was wrong. The eventual revelation of what was going on did catch me by surprise, and that gains the movie a couple of points from me. The ending, however, is bizarre. I have to admit that I just didn't really understand how the movie ended.
Bosworth's performance was a kind of combination of Nicole Kidman (the look especially) and eventually it blends in some of Kathy Bates' character from Misery. Bentley himself just never picked up any steam in his performance as far as I was concerned.
This isn't as horrible as some people make it out to be. But it is weird - which is compelling for a while, but in the end you leave it disappointed. (4/10)
