June 24, 2006
Though it's obvious after five minutes that this is a complete no-no, the cinema equivalent of a bellyflop, it exercises a perverse fascination
January 1, 2000
[A] stunningly turgid mess.

Both Miss Taylor and Miss Novak, as larger-than-life silver-screen rivals of a certain age, get all wound up for some fancy, high-toned tongue-lashings, but the material isn't up to their power.

March 23, 2011
For all her prolificacy, Agatha Christie relied too often on one particular plot twist, and as soon as you recognize her old favorite here, the film loses all interest.
November 2, 2015
The Christie plot ends up so drastically foreshortened that you'd swear a reel must have been misplaced, although the sluggish direction of Guy Hamilton doesn't make one anxious to see it restored.

For the more hard-line Christie aficionados, Hamilton's film is likely to be just a little too casual in its adaptation. For the less discriminating, it's a blast.

March 26, 2009
A nostalgic throwback to the genteel British murder mystery pix of the 1950s.
January 29, 2004
The Mirror Crack'd is a thoroughly enjoyable Agatha Christie mystery.
March 23, 2011
The good lines make Mirror more fun to watch than it has any right to be.
September 18, 2003
Watching Novak and Taylor lay into each other verbally is a treat. Whether that should be what you come away with from a Miss Marple movie is another consideration.

March 23, 2011
[A] classic murder mystery drama.
March 23, 2011
The big-name cast is a great, nostalgic throwback to the 1950s, when its players' names -- Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson, Kim Novak, Tony Curtis -- graced giant theater marquees.
