Trivia

This is the third time Naomi Watts has been tied up and gagged on screen, the previous occasions being in Sleepwalkers: Eye of the Beholder (1998) and Funny Games (2007). In this film, she is tied up naked in a bathtub with her mouth sealed shut with duct tape, likely as a form of humiliation. See more »

Doug: Hey. It's going to be okay.
Richard: Just tell me we're doing the right thing.
Doug: No, sweetheart, I know you want to fix this. It's what you do. But we've tried. All right? We've been trying and look where it's gotten us.
[looking over at their son waiting in the car]
Doug: And I think the space is gonna be good for him. For all of us. Besides, it's a good school. He'll be home by the end of the summer.

TOOOOO Predictable!
18 November 2016 | by artieup-570-920707See all my reviews

It's crazy how bad movie production has become lately.. What is wrong writers and directors? This predictable movie stuff being produced now days is no excuse to blame on piracy or low sales.. It IS getting Ridiculous!

I practically sat there with my wife at the movies and could dam near predict almost half of what was going to happen past half way through the to the end.

Its a shame because this movie could have went so many other ways to give us something refreshing to look at.. but NO.. The laziness kicked in on this movie like many of the other crap being produced now..

It's getting bad!
