Robert De Niro and especially Dakota Fanning have earned some praise for their work in Hide and Seek, but critics have called the rest of the film derivative, illogical and somewhat silly.

A tawdry cocktail of red herrings, cheap psychology, and shameless horror-movie tropes.
The movie goes down the tubes in the last third.
[An] idiotic, yawn-a-minute thriller.
Follows no semblance of internal logic.
I think it's just so well made, so well photographed.
Through its first two-thirds, at least, Hide and Seek does a good enough job of piquing our curiosity that the movie's ultimate dumbness is more than a minor insult.
Older teens may enjoy; too creepy for kids.
The movie starts out as one thing and suddenly jumps the tracks into something else. Then there's the question of credibility that this abrupt switch invites.
This movie has more red herrings than an Agatha Christie novel combined with the aquarium downtown. The real question is, 'How did this stinker attract such a big name cast?'
Shameless in its appropriation of incidents and atmosphere from earlier horror movies, with De Niro giving one of the emptier performances of his latter-day career.
The best way to tell when things are getting bleak is to check Dakota Fanning's face. When she starts to look like a poached egg, that's when you better hide.
The 'surprise' ending in Hide and Seek is not only unreasonable, but also downright unoriginal.
Not bad little thriller let down by a dingy twist at the end. Dakota is a little understated here, but can see why by the end.
Not the best movie ever, but enjoyed it.
Hide and Seek is a predictable and mediocre thriller that not even the good performances by Robert De Niro and Dakota Fanning can salvage. The film had a good idea, but it quickly falls apart, and becomes a tired film that tries too hard to deliver the thrills. For me, a good thriller film has got to be effortless in delivering a top-notch story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Though Hide and Seek starts off good enough to keep you interested, the director doesn't know where to take this story and give us, the viewer an exciting climax. Hide and Seek is simply a mediocre thriller that doesn't try to thrill you. This film is quite uninspired with an ineffective overused formula to create its thrills and tension. What's really surprising is that the good cast that director John Polson directs can't save the film from being a dud. I felt that the film started off well enough, but then it ventured into too similar territory of ideas that have been explored in previous films. I felt that the overused, cliché elements killed this film, and made it quite boring. A good cast is wasted here, and there's nothing going on that really kept me interested in this film. I didn't like the film, and felt it was very mediocre, and this is the perfect example of how a movie that uses old clichéd ideas to create a "new" thriller can turn out, it turns bad. Hide and Seek is boring, uninspired and dull. What could have been a good film is ruined by a bad script and overused ideas.
Unexpected twists and exceptional performances. Creepy and cleverly written. A must see!
i guessed the ending... yeah, when the movie is completely dependent on the ending like this (saw movies) and you predict the ending, it has nothing going for it.
