Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: An uneasy mix between Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and the The X-Files, and one not nearly as smart as either.

- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Friday, September 24, 2004

Fresh: Perhaps wisely leaves more questions than it answers and for the most part manages to maintain its suspense.

- Brian Lowry, Variety, Friday, September 24, 2004

Fresh: Such unabashed ludicrousness can be fun, in a brainless sort of way, especially when it's coupled with lots of sudden defibrillator jolts underscored by crashing cymbals.

- Carina Chocano, Los Angeles Times, Friday, September 24, 2004

3 stars

A very twilight zonish plot with an interesting combination of twists and turns. Not bad not great.

Julianne Moore is a mother who misses her dead son, which is normal ... until everyone she knows starts to tell her that she never had one. As the story shifts from psychological thriller into the unknown, the fantastic, well, it loses its way, but the actors are still good.

I remember this movie was engaging, but it gets way too ridiculous at the end.
