Like a lot of mediocre movies it's not about much more than the immediate emotional response it's trying to generate. The filmmakers realize this and make an effort to shoe horn some themes in ... it just makes an already muddled movie even more muddled.

It may be a mediocre thriller, but it's a nice drama about rekindling the spark in a dying marriage. If you don't buy that, consider it a 110-minute fashion show, with more clothing changes than Project Runway.

Although aspects of Premonition tantalize, other elements frustrate, and that makes for an uneasy final result.

Movies obsessed with keeping us guessing can miss out on providing reasons to keep us caring.

One reality Bullock unfortunately can't change is the ineluctable trudge toward the appallingly boneheaded ending.

As Premonition zigzags toward its solution it loses its head completely, packing a risible final reel with left-field religious disquisitions and heartfelt warnings against infidelity.

Pay real money to see this feeble fiasco only if you're in the mood for Groundhog Day without the laughs.

This film wants to be a twisty thriller but ends up something of a misogynistic mess which leaves its leading lady stranded.

Ohmigod - ya feel that? That rumbling in your ribs, that hiccup in your heart, that frigidness in your frontal lobe. It's a premonition that the act of buying a ticket to "Premonition" will result in tragedy.

"I don't know what to fight for," a tortured Bullock tells her local priest. My suggestion would be better scripts. A couple more like this one and I can see "Speed 3" on the horizon!

I just returned from the immediate future, like two minutes from now, and I have a strong feeling I'm about to give this movie a big thumbs down.

The script and direction are so humorless that the film becomes unintentionally funny, and, perhaps inevitably, the story falls apart once we know what's really going on.

Damn if the movie doesn't work hard, through not working hard at all, at setting some sort of record for dreary ridiculousness.

By the time the requisite, and somewhat silly twist end comes around, we as an audience no longer care.

Just a rehashed 'Twilight Zone' plot stretched over 90 minutes while Sandra Bullock stumbles around working on her 'baffled' face.

Screenwriter Bill Kelly has some wild ideas for this mental time bomb, but he has problems organizing the thrills and the chills in the correct order for maximum unease.

Here's a Premonition for you: This ill-conceived thriller isn't going to do anything for Sandra Bullock's career.

If the director seems to show Sandra no mercy as she's instructed to run around breathlessly for two hours in circles through the past, present and future in no particular order, imagine the even greater toll this movie takes on the exasperated audience.
