Goofs

When telling the police about his intercom call, Jonathan says that he dialed the wrong number to accidentally reach the murderer, while in fact he called the correct number 333 for the apartment of his neighbor Hicks. So the phone number list near the intercom is flawed. See more »

Great Premise, Terrible Film
6 June 2001 | by sdiner82See all my reviews

A young building designer re-locates from N.Y. to L.A., moves into a posh apartment complex, and thinks he's is heaven. Until he encounters his ominous neighbors, spaced-out landlord, screams in the night, and a savagely bloody murder...A wonderful premise for a thriller is quickly demolished by a ridiculous, incoherent, nonsensical script that makes absolutely no sense at all. And the over-the-top denouement is laughable. A few eerie moments, a stylish production, and an appealingly valiant performance by Andrew McCarthy rescue this mystery-misfire from total disaster. Still, skip "The Courtyard" and watch "Rear Window" again...and again...Hitchcock, where art thou?
