Critic Reviews for Mother, May I Sleep with Danger?

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4)

It's a bold choice to devote a solid minute of the running time to the famed "Macbeth" monologue including the line, "a tale told by an idiot full of sound and fury signifying nothing." Bold, and like the rest of the movie, a little too self-aware.

Mother's great feat is that it's a movie that manages to be both exploitative and progressive.

It's high camp, and whoever at the network green-lit it -- assuming, of course, they were in on the joke -- is brilliant.

The movie is much ado about nothing, feeling desperately thin and pointless. At first promising campy fun, it's soon simply mystifying, then misguided, gross and finally tiresome in its look-at-me-ness.

The monsters here serve as larger metaphors, but thankfully Danger's heavy-handed themes don't kill a fun campy Saturday movie night.

It's probably the most unnecessary and unwanted remake in film history and yet Franco plays it straight (ahem) and respectful.
