Silly and trite
19 November 2002 | by (Salem, Va.) – See all my reviews

I too have seen Supernatural very recently and I found it to be silly and trite. I kept telling myself that this wasn't Carole Lombard that I was watching as I couldn't believe she would do such a horrible movie. Alas, it was she and it was also Randolph Scott hamming it up in too many scenes. But, unlike another critic of this movie at this site I did not see Robert Montgomery anywhere in this movie.

Give credit where credit is due and withold it when it isn't due. Robert Montgomery was nowhere near this abomination of a movie.
