Agatha Christie - Marple: By the Pricking of My Thumbs Reviews

Page 1 of 1
June 27, 2013
Where to start? There's just too much wrong about this adaptation of Christie's crime novel.
Why include Jane Marple in a Tommy and Tuppence story? Why portray Tuppence as a frustrated hag with a drinking problem? Why change the time it is originally set in? And even if one finds all these alterations necessary, why then make so many mistakes in continuity? And why is it that all characters are as flat as cardboard and the actors perform as crudely as if they'd never been on the screen before? So many questions...
This production is, all in all, a waste of money and time and everyone who's looking for a nice evening with Christie's characters should avoid this take on "By the Pricking of my Thumbs" like the plague - you'll get more out of it if someone hits you over the head with the DVD case.
