Must be Kidding
14 August 2004 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Margot Kidder and Michael Sarrazin give fine performances as innocent bystanders who become investigators, caught up in a robbery and murder with international implications. Margot is great from the start. Sarrazin starts off cartoon-like but quickly grows into the role of an expert investigative journalist who becomes part of the story he is investigating.

The plot is fine thriller material too, but unfortunately, the film covers too much too quickly and as a result is deeply flawed. It's as if a fine four hour thriller was chopped in writing or in editing to fit in an hour or so, leaving nothing but the clichés of the medium. There is nothing that Kidder can do to save this chop job of a film.
