...an early candidate for worst movie of the year...

Austin Chronicle

Ridiculously overwrought and sporting an unfriendly little subtext hinting that women with anxious libidos are to be studiously avoided at all costs -- especially when they carry sidearms.

The outdated, cliche-riddled direction is so inept and indifferent that it's hard to believe Twisted was lensed by the same Philip Kaufman who made The Right Stuff.

No edge, no sense of danger...Twisted is perhaps the tamest psychosexual thriller ever made.

San Francisco still belongs to 'Dirty' Harry Callahan. Twisted, this town ain't big enough for the two of you. Scram!

A suspense thriller without thrills or suspense.

Kaufman's personal touch is missing, as if he knew this thing wouldn't look good on a résumé.

You're not sure whether to take the film as a sophisticated parody, a surrealist prose poem, or an unusually dumb thriller.

The only surprise in this supposedly tricky thriller is that the script attracted this cast and director.

I vote we all chip in and get Ashley Judd singing lessons so she can re-join the Judd family on tour.

Twisted's tale could have done with a little bit of Joe Eszterhas flamboyance.

For a movie riddled with corpses, Twisted is pretty lifeless.

What a "Twisted" mess of a movie.

The Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
March 4, 2004
It's at once dumber and more entertaining than typical Judd-in-peril fare.

The best film in recent memory shot in San Francisco by a director who actually lives here and knows the lay of the land.

There's lots to like about it, but none of this ultimately matters when you come out of the movie feeling cheated.

A friend of mine who saw the movie before I did thought it should rate maybe one-and-a-half stars. I'm still trying to figure out what prompted his generosity.

Anybody who doesn't feel like they've seen this movie at least three times already, raise your hand.

It's almost inconceivable that the director of this total misfire is Philip Kaufman, the immense talent behind The Right Stuff and Henry & June.
