Goofs

(at around 55 mins) Bob (an allegedly avid coin collector) is inspecting a penny with a magnifying glass. He is pinching the front and back of the coin in his fingers. Any amateur coin collector would never touch the face of a coin as it will tarnish and devalue it. It would be held by pinching around the rim only. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Bob Anderson: [as narrator] I fled him down the nights and down the days. I fled him down the arches of the years. I fled him down the labyrinthine ways of my own mind. And in the mist of tears, I hid from him, and under running laughter.

Incredibly Dull And Shallow Movie
3 October 2014 | by HorrorOverEverythingSee all my reviews

I'm a huge Stephen King fan, the man is a genius when it comes to books. When it comes to his books becoming movies, not so much though. Don't get me wrong, some Stephan King books have translated into film's quite well, however "The Good Marriage" is not one of those.

I'll start off by saying I did not read the story that this film is based on. I'm not sure if the movie does it justice or not, I hope not though. The entire thing was just so slow and not entertaining at all. The story is very basic and really hardly goes anywhere. The acting is also pretty bad, some of the delivered lines were cringeworthy.

I really don't have much good to say about this film other than the last 15 minutes was alright. I really feel bad bashing it, because I wanted to like this movie. Just had a really really really hard time finding something to like about it.

3/10
