Everything that comes before is rote and by-the-book, from the groan-worthy innuendo-laden puns to the two-dimensional cookie-cutter characters, it's a color-by-numbers thriller that's flat.
Plays like a painfully stilted high school production of "Fatal Attraction."
There's a rhythm to these things, and screenwriter Chris Frisina has certainly watched his share of late-night cable TV thrillers.
"Careful What You Wish For" might have been a better film had the two leading ladies, McClure and Lucas, switched roles. But not that much better.
A film that tries to be both titillating and suspenseful but is neither.
This erotic noir is about as substantial as one of its female lead's string bikinis, but it's an enjoyable trifle nonetheless.
As a purported erotic thriller, it's neither particularly erotic nor remotely thrilling.
Nick Jonas stars in clichéd thriller with sex, language.
In the mood for a teen twist on a James Cain mystery, with a soupcon of T&A? You could do worse than this slick variation on 'Double Indemnity.' ... The cinematic equivalent to beach reading.
... stretches credibility before completely flying off the rails in the third act.
Careful What You Wish For is a cut-rate erotic thriller that's light on eroticism, and even lighter on thrills.
A teeny-bopper version of 'Double Indemnity' or 'Body Heat' [that] has the feel of a LifeTime movie with a bit more skin than the norm.
