Dial M For Murder has never been so disregarded as it was in this remake.

Don't know why anyone would remake a film that was so complete to begin with, but I guess it was bound to happen.

Michael (more wrinkles than Phyllis Diller) Douglas and Gwyneth (I'm in everything, anywhere, ever) Paltrow star in this remake of the Hitchcock classic, and it's all a big bore.

Not even going to go into it. It's lame. Video fare maybe. I spent $3 on it and wished I'd gone to McDonalds. Gwyneth ain't all that, sorry Ben, and Douglas needs to embrace his greyness.

I'm sure Gwyneth is capable of acting, I just haven't see her do it yet. As for Douglas, I kept forgetting which movie I was watching while he was on screen. He looked the same as he has in every movie he's ever done.

It was Gordon Gecko married to Emma.

Why does every artist in films have long hair and a six pack o'abs? Just wondering.
