...a seriously tedious suburban thriller that wastes the talents of its admittedly impressive cast...

Reel Film Reviews

It may not be the most glossy of films, but at least it tries to meet its audience's expectations.

Audience Reviews for Wicked


Leigh Ryan

Super Reviewer

Easily one of the most predictable thriller films, but Julia Stiles did a good job playing the troubled teenager with Elektra complex. Wicked is a combination of Stepford wives with Poison Ivy. The set design was pretty great though, it did a good job showing the supposedly perfect family with a touch of campiness.
