Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A witty, relaxed lark.
Fresh: A rolling boil of sex and violence beneath the bland surfaces of suburban placidity.
Fresh: Hitchcock has a deviously complicated tale to tell, and he's going to tell it with labyrinthine detail, and he's not going to cheat.
Fresh: It's a movie that's haunted by death, with lengthy sequences played out in cemeteries.
Funny, I was just thinking about this great movie...
and how it has been so long since I've seen it, and I run across it in iTunes. I must be psychic. ;-) This is one of Hitchcock's best. It has everything - comedy, suspense, action, and even a bit of romance. I'm a big Hitchcock fan, and this is one of my favorites!
Great End to Hitchcock's career
Alfred Hitchcock was one of the most innovative directors that ever lived, He showed us that you don't have to have blood and gore to create a good thriller. I think more directors should follow in his footsteps. This was a great movie that he made and was a perfect way to end his career, You must see it. It was suspensful and at some points funny. This movie goes into a top ten of hitchcock movies.
Not his best but still very good.
This is not my favorite Hitchcock film, but compared to movies being made today it is top notch. It is entertaining and fun to watch. What more do you want in a movie?
