The climax is so implausible we stop caring and start scratching our heads!

The screenplay stretches the viewer's credulity far beyond the breaking point, asking us to accept dozens of absurd contrivances and coincidences.

This is a sloppily made film, imitative of the smoother made The Parallax View.

Arlington Road is a movie trying so hard for intelligence, quality and deeper meanings, you can almost sense the strain under the celluloid.

So filled with moronic intentions and illogical ideas that, had there been any truth to them, might have led audiences to believe that we live in the Twilight Zone.

It never really gets inside us, mostly due to its overheated direction and endless Hitchcockian references.

The machinations and manipulations built into the story it spins are simply too obvious to be taken to heart.
