The various elements of the script are realistically portrayed and spares no effort in conveying the full weight of emotional impact upon the viewer.
The self inflicted psychological onslaught is merciless and perhaps even dangerous, but the debate of the therapeutic efficacies of such an approach to emotional purging and self healing is better left to professionals.
the happy ending is finally and arduously achieved and the writer meets her deadline with a "killer" script.
P.S. Brittany M, you are sorely missed!
Now to the bones of the movie:
What a mess! Messy script. Messy characters with lack of any kind of development. Messy ending. The scariest thing about this movie is how Brittany Murphy floats through the entire film with perpetual "duck lips" since she never closes her mouth, wide, unblinking eyes and jerky movements. She genuinely looks frail and terrible, which would make sense since, sadly, this was to be her last film. Her character could have been played by an animatronic robot since there is very little dialogue or any other "emotion" other than the, "I'm-perpetually-mouth-breathing-and-looking-alarmed-for-no-reason-whatsoever" type of 'acting'. The script is bare, the acting is lackluster and there is no character development at all, this makes me not care about what happens to any of the them throughout the movie. None of the characters are likable. The ending will leave you scratching your head and cursing at the TV because it is so confusing and ambiguous. In conclusion, there is really nothing "artful" or "clever" about this film and if I didn't know any better, I would have thought I was watching a Lifetime movie.
