Some really good performances by Alice Faye and Don Ameche. The most enjoyable moments feature the brilliant comedian, Buster Keaton. Wish he had been in the picture more. I found it distracting that the film opens in 1913, yet the clothes were from the 1930s. It took me out of the picture. A poor choice in costuming.
This film is beautifully shot. If you're just looking for something visual, you'll enjoy this movie. If you're looking for a tight story and pace, you probably won't. It begins to really drag in the middle because not much happens to keep it moving. The thing that left me most baffled was Mom's decision to sacrifice herself AFTER they had already figured out what would keep the monster at bay until daylight. That being said, I'm a big Zoe Kazan fan. She's always a pleasure to watch, even if the film doesn't quite do her justice.
I didn't read the book, but I liked this movie overall. I've seen many people comment that GONE GIRL was much better, but I couldn't disagree more. I walked out of GONE GIRL feeling so cheated and duped that I was angry for days whenever anyone brought it up. Although this isn't a perfect film and most films aren't, Emily Blunt's performance was compelling and made the movie watchable from beginning to end. Look people, making a great movie is really, really hard. Make one, and you'll find you have far too many cooks in the kitchen to be served up something that melts in your mouth at the end. Still, I found this movie to be very satisfying, and I'm disappointed the critics gave it such low ratings.
