Storyline

Living quietly in the small village of King's Abbot, sleuth Hercule Poirot becomes involved in the murder of successful industrialist Roger Ackroyd. The number of potential killers is almost as great as the population of the village itself. As Poirot investigates he sees that there might be a connection to the suicide of a local woman, and the death the previous year of her husband. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

Quotes

Roger Ackroyd: Look, I might as well tell you this, Poirot. I've been, well, in love with Dorothy Ferrars for years. She telephoned me yesterday, very upset, wanted to see me. She broke down completely. She told me everything: her hatred of that brute of a husband, her growing feelings for me, and the dreadful means she'd taken to - poison! Murder... cold-blooded murder!

User Reviews

 
This movie is AWFUL!

Read the book! It is so much better. The movie does not even begin to reflect the complexities that Christie contained in her novel. Not to mention, HUGE plot twists are treated in a mundane way and many events are altered, discarded, or invented. Also, the character development in the movie lacks what the novel can provide. In a word, it SUCKS! While I realize that this is a movie website, if you are going to make a movie based on a mystery novel, you should probably at least attempt to maintain the integrity of the original work. Otherwise, just rob the general theme, give the people new names, and pass it off as your own. This movie is the reason why my professors always told me "always read the book, never watch the movie!"
