The screenplay, by director Jonathan Darby and Jane Rusconi, might have prompted Lange to fly way over the top. Thankfully, she reins in her performance sufficiently to save the melodrama from becoming just another Whatever Happended To Baby Jane? lampoon.

Hush is gussied up by its classy distaff cast members, but remains trashy all the same.

The only way that a story this insipid could be any good would be if it was a very campy black comedy.

[A] trashy, overwrought thriller.

Jessica Lange establishes a spark of interest in this psychological thriller with her giggly demonic performance. But the film never adds up to anything more than an elaborate tease.

The screenplay borders on the hilarious, at times, with a couple eliciting guffaws.

If only TriStar had hushed writer-director Jonathan Darby when he made the pitch for this insulting thriller.

Cast opposite Oscar-winner Jessica Lange, Paltrow makes abundantly clear her ability to compete with one of the best actresses in the business.

Given how terrible Hush is, it should be more fun to watch.

A mystery without surprises, a thriller without thrills. It's too bad, really, because the movie has a few strong points.

Only Nina Foch, as the wheelchair bound granny hidden away among nuns, shows any flair for taking this into the campy domain in which it might have flourished.

Hush has three very simple problems: it's incredibly dumb, it's incredibly boring, and it's incredibly predictable (at least up to the stupefying ending).

Hush is the kind of movie where you walk in, watch the first 10 minutes, know exactly where it's going, and hope devoutly that you're wrong.

It is to scary movies what Sesame Street's 'the Count' is to vampires.
