Thin Ice Reviews

Reel Film Reviews

Thin Ice's troubled production history - the film was famously taken away from director Jill Sprecher and re-edited following its Sundance premiere - can't quite dampen what is, for the most part, an entertaining little comedy/thriller...

The characters are endearingly flawed, the set-up is mischievously appealing and the story is endlessly surprising. The humour is black, the resolution audacious.

In the vein of Fargo and A Simple Plan, Thin Ice is a delicious black crime comedy that melts before our eyes

It builds suspense slowly and surely as things begin to come apart for Kinnear, but it eventually grows tiresome and the twist ending is still a bit hard to swallow.

...the film that has made its way into theaters is no disgrace to any of the names in the credits. Still, it would be very interesting to see the movie that the Sprechers intended to make.

The movie's gently snowbound Midwestern setting blunts some of the story's harsher edges, and the characters mostly feel real.

The only things differentiating Thin Ice from Fargo? A lack of Midwestern accents and entertainment value.

Sprecher and her co-writer sister Karen seem to have gone through a card file of used ideas to cobble together this black comedy.

An amusingly nerve-wracking trek into the snow and out onto the ice with those funny folks in the land of "you betcha."

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

It's convoluted and clever, and on that score it works quite nicely. But if you're looking for something substantial beyond this, you're looking for a different movie.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

A climactic twist tries to make the movie that preceded it more interesting in retrospect than it was while it unfolded, but the plot is too implausible -- too unbelievable, really -- to be clever.

Thin Ice is choppy, its tone jumps, it has an unnecessary voice-over, and one wonders about the easy, sappy ending. One also wonders what the original movie was like before it fell through the thin ice of manipulation.

Reeling Reviews

Writer sisters Karen and Jill (who also directs) Sprecher look to the "Fargo" playbook for their twisty modern noir, and while much of it feels awfully familiar, a great cast and third act twist raise it above similar wannabes...

As a caustic comedy, "Thin Ice" resides just slightly south of "Fargo."

At one point you're looking at the screen going, "This makes no sense!" Then after a long conclusionary explanation, you shake your head and say, "I'm still not sure that made much sense."
