Perfect Misery
8 November 2008 | by guilfisher-1See all my reviews

For this film was so bad that it must have been made on a budget of one dollar. Script is so predictable and trite and done a thousand and one times in other films. This one had no creative input, including most of the acting. To this viewer, Teri Garr and Hector Elizondo stole the movie with their presence. They made a terrific couple of sleuths looking for the clues.

The clues were provided by an array of bad actors. Namely Kathleen Quinn, who just forever seems bored with every role she plays. In this she sleep walks most of the time and has as much energy as a dead leaf. Alex McArthur plays her husband and sneers through most of the film to tell us he's the bad guy. Then here's the French tart, played by Lydie Denier, who I think is supposed to be sexy to us. But with her skinny body there's much to be desired. She too looks like a bimbo without a country. Anne Ramsay as the sister fares well as does Charles Martin Smith and Rex Lin. Everyone else should feel embarrassed in having appeared in this garbage.
