Goofs

Towards the end of the movie, when Page is wearing the red wig, driving the 1960 Lincoln Continental with Gordon half-passed-out in the front seat, the interior shots show the car to be a 1961 or 1962 General Motors vehicle (you can tell by the vent window and dashboard). Then it becomes a 1960 Lincoln again when they show the outside shots, and when the car goes into the lake. The Lincoln has a perfect rectangle vent window at a 90 degree angle; the GM car has a teardrop shaped vent which is slanted back. See more »

Creepy....
23 August 2000 | by TeenieSee all my reviews

Geraldine Page gives a stellar performance as a whacked-out nutzo who delights in making compost out of her housekeepers and then stealing their money. Alas, along comes Ruth Gordon (at her snoopiest, sneakiest best) to investigate her friend's death, and then the gray hair flies. The scene in which these two senior citizens duke it out makes you see that adrenaline still pumps after age 60 (see Laurence Olivier and Gregory Peck in the climax of "The Boys from Brazil" if you don't believe me). Ruth Gordon's character reminds me of a sweet yet feisty grandma who wouldn't hesitate to deck you with a right hook if her words didn't get to you. I actually wanted to jump in there and help her kick butt since I liked her character so much. If you like the kind of film that startles you to attention, check this one out. It's very much worth a look.
