Contains nothing to outrage or offend partisans of the original, yet neither does it stand to add much to their appreciation.

Hitchcock probably wouldn't tell this story if he was making films today, and he certainly wouldn't tell it this way, with internal 'voices', back projection, minimal nudity and violence.

Van Sant clearly knows that if it ain't broke, don't fix it, and his own smooth touch is neatly sympathetic with his predecessor's.

The movie is an invaluable experiment in the theory of cinema, because it demonstrates that a shot-by-shot remake is pointless; genius apparently resides between or beneath the shots, or in chemistry that cannot be timed or counted.

The movie lacks the chutzpah to even be a travesty.

Vaughn and Heche bring energy and freshness to the parts originated by Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh. Heche is so good, in fact, and so frisky and watchable in her role, that after her grisly demise in the shower you miss her for a long time.

The film is polished when it should be edgy and impersonal when it should be seductive.

It remains the most structurally elegant and sneakily playful of thrillers!

This is a lifeless, workmanlike project; all tension has been leeched away. Also, it's in color.

Van Sant has cranked up the realism about 20 points, but somehow what he achieves for the effort is a larger sense of banality!

So much of Van Sant's 'new' version of the classic remains the same that you sit there shaking your head, mumbling, why, oh, why?
