Critic Consensus: Due to obvious plot twists and foreshadowing, The Glass House fails to thrill. By the end, it degenerates into ludicrousness.

News & Interviews for The Glass House
Critic Reviews for The Glass House
Wesley Strick, the screenwriter, is my hero. I admire anyone who's figured out how to do as little work as he does and still make a good living.
One look at Terry and Erin's home, and you can sense director Daniel Sackheim gearing up for a tsunami of hogwash.
Has so much potential and structure to become an excellent thriller yet it doesn't deliver.
...the screenplay...doesn't contain an ounce of subtlety or even intelligence.
All told, Ruby is responsible for more deaths than the villain. What a spunky little heroine.
Audience Reviews for The Glass House
An orphaned teen and her brother live with a sinister family friend after their parents die.
Aside from the sheer joy of watching Stellan Skarsgard be bad, there is nothing unique or new about this thriller, which is as predictable as it is lame. Leelee Sobieski is a boring heroine, and Diane Lane is woefully underused.
Overall, I have very little to say about this film because the film has very little to say.
Decent good movie but not a great one sorry. Basically same idea as other movies with different actors...
Trust can be as transparent as glass. When Ruby Baker's parents are killed in a car accident, her and her brother, Rhett, must travel to Malibu, to live with Terrence and Erin Glass, their former neighbors. At first, Ruby and Rhett are comfortable and happy. Ruby is making new friends at school and Rhett is getting more video games and flashy toys then he could possibly know what to do with! But, when Ruby speaks to her family's estate lawyer, he tells her that her parents have left her and Rhett $4 million. Suddenly, Ruby begins to notice odd behavior from Terry and Erin.
what a dumbass stupid movie
