Goofs

When they are driving through town, the POV is from the back seat where Tyler is sitting. Becca is in the passenger seat, and has her camera on Pop Pop who is driving. We can see through the windshield that they are going down a steep hill in town, lined with houses. Becca swings her camera around to the front and now the POV is from her camera, but they instantaneously switch to going uphill, and the houses are different and mixed with shops. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Mom: At the end of high school, I fell in love with a substitute English teacher. It was quite a scandal. Corin didn't start out a bad guy, though. We were together about 10 years and we had two kids. And then he fell in love with someone in a Starbucks, and moved to Palo Alto, California. Kind of severed relations with the three of us. My parents, if I were defending them, which I'm not, had said, back in the day, that he had an "impatient eye."They didn't like him. Week I left, things...

Not as good as everyone seems to think it is.
13 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

With unlikeable children as protagonists and cheap jump scares, The Visit serves as less of a comeback for Shyamalan and more of a reminder as to why I haven't seen any of his movies in theaters since Lady in the Water (yikes to that one too, by the way).

While this movie follows Shyamalans traditional game-changing-twist-at-the-end formula with an attempt to balance in a sentimental dramatic storyline as well (in the style of The Sixth Sense and The Village), the jump scares and irritating dialogue (why does the boy decide to say pop stars names instead of swearing? Why is this girl so pretentious and irritating?) undermine it in the end.
