Good but overlong...and loses some of its momentum as the film progresses.
19 January 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Where Sinners Meet" is an enjoyable film. However, the movie seems to lose a bit of steam about midway through it and that is why I give it a mediocre score of 6, even though it's a wildly original story--a story created by A.A. Milne--the creator of Winnie the Pooh! The film begins with two lovers racing to Dover so they can elope and run off to the continent. After all, the husband to be already has a wife--so haste is very important. However, their car develops problems and they are forced to seek refuge at a hotel...or manor home--they aren't sure what the place is. However, the two soon start to wonder if the car really was broken and if perhaps this all wasn't arranged by their host--a very strange eccentric indeed. There are LOTS of surprises in store--particularly when they find that there is another couple staying there under identical circumstances. What's next? See the film.

Had the film been wrapped up quicker and not been drug out so much, I would have scored this one an 8. The acting is nice and the story very good. And, despite dragging later, it is still worth your time. Not brilliant but nice.
