I was trying to decide what to see this afternoon so I was looking up the reviews for this movie. Since 6th Sense, M. Night's movies have been bad to awful...and apparently this one doesn't change that trend. Rarely do you see Yahoo reviews where the Yahoo User average rating is lower than the Critics rating - this one is. Rarely do you see a Yahoo User average rating that is lower than "C" - this one is. Here's a typical review. I think I'll wait for the DVD:

I GOT my money back!!

Dang straight I did!! Not only did I GET my money back from the theatre but this is the first time I have EVER been compelled to write a review. The only possible way this film is getting any positive feedback here is the studio must hire interns to crank out phony on line reviews. This film is an example of irresponsible filmmaking. Weak story, poor acting and plot holes that are... just pathetic. Does anyone even question this guy or read his script before spending tens of millions on producing this garbage? It felt like some lame, pointless episode of the twilight zone. No, that would be an insult to Rod Serling. This guy has based an entire career on a one liner and a twist ending nearly ten years ago. Its been downhill ever since and he has now hit rock bottom. Yeah, I got my money back but I'll never get 90 minutes of my life back. Not even a rental.
