Lots of twists in this one. Well done but the base story of the two people trying to be detectives gets a little grating.
love agatha christie
A faithful, but dry and drawn out adaptation of Agatha Christie's novel. Good for an evening of pop-tarts, hot chocolate, and mystery, not necessarily much cinema to admire.
Although the movie has merit for fans of Francesca Annis or Connie Booth, it has not stood the test of time... E.G... lines like "I say! You were so frightfully plucky!"
Incredibly faithful adaptation of Christie's novel... unfortunately, it is also incredibly drawn out... It might actually have benefited by trimming down some of the Christie's text. As for the mystery plot, has some interesting twists and turns, but it is fairly contrived overall (for instance, there is no reason why the dying man would utter those particular words - they are nothing more than a McGuffin to get the plot moving forward). This contrivance is not the filmmaker's fault but the original Christie novel, which stretched plausibility from the beginning. Still, interesting and entertaining. Highly recommended for Christie fans, solid recommendation for mystery fans, but only a mild recommendation for all others...
Brew some tea and curl up by the fire for murder, intrigue, and madcap upper-class high jinks in Agatha Christie's Why Didn't They Ask Evans?
Can't stand the Tommy and Tuppence series.gah.
I did not really like this movie.
An enjoyable British murder mystery with low production values and good actors. Francesca Annis and James Warwick make a great comedic pair here as well as the Tommy & Tuppence mysteries.
