Quotes

[first lines]
Mom: At the end of high school, I fell in love with a substitute English teacher. It was quite a scandal. Corin didn't start out a bad guy, though. We were together about 10 years and we had two kids. And then he fell in love with someone in a Starbucks, and moved to Palo Alto, California. Kind of severed relations with the three of us. My parents, if I were defending them, which I'm not, had said, back in the day, that he had an "impatient eye."They didn't like him. Week I left, things...

M. Night Shyamalan tricked me again - TERRIBLE MOVIE
12 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The 7/10 rating for this movie is very misleading, its more of a 2/10 rating. Its funny, a bit or horror, a bit thriller all with a PG-13 rating. This movie is fun for teenagers but the story was boring. The acting was just OK. M. Night Shyamalan will never make a movie as good as the sixth sense again and the qualities of his movies is quickly going downhill.He does a good job of attracting the teenage crowd that is easily entertained. If you are looking for a good thriller, horror or just a movie with a good story steer clear of this movie. Please don't waste your money on this nonsense.
