Dull, unfunny misfire with a good surprise at the end.
Think about it: if you met someone who was constantly saying things like "I'm absolutely ravishing, where's the food?" or "does she have any relatives she might be related to?", would you laugh or would you just look in amazement, wondering what the hell is wrong with that idiot? The answer to that question will determine your reaction to "Trixie" as a comedy, since this misuse of well-known expressions and phrases is the movie's ONLY attempt at humor. It's a shame to find such an interesting actress as Emily Watson playing such an uninteresting character. There is also a mystery, and it's pretty tired, but it does offer one good surprise at the end, so I guess the movie earns a ** out of 4 rating.
