A rolling boil of sex and violence beneath the bland surfaces of suburban placidity.

Hitchcock's last (53rd) film is a post-modern, self-reflexive work, which deserves a more serious look and better grade than granted by many critics.

It's the perfect crime picture.

... full of allusions to past Hitchcock. A car is parked on Bates Avenue; a gas station man tells a cab driver it is dangerous to light a match; the kidnapers tell each other how danger makes them tingle; and the female kidnaper used a blonde wig.

It's not exactly top-tier Hitchcock, but it features enough good stuff to make it at least worth one viewing.

It's a movie that's haunted by death, with lengthy sequences played out in cemeteries.

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.

Hitch's swan song and a pretty good one.

Once you tap into the film's gentle satire of its characters and genre, its strengths become apparent.

While it's certainly not up to the standard of Hitchcock's great films, Family Plot is still good fun.
