The set-up isn't a bad one and in some ways this film reminded me of 'The Hand That Rocks The Cradle', but despite an intriguing set-up the film doesn't contain much in the way of audience involvement.

Completely unimaginative directing, poor editing and very predictable.

His commitment to his characters and willingness to get wild makes him one of the most exciting and worthwhile actors to watch in my opinion; even if he outputs a good amount of stinkers.

He seemed bored and overwhelmed by the female leads.

Had I played this at 1.5x faster speed, it may have been more enjoyable.

) and quite slow.

And its been done SO many times in the past -- someone mentioned "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle" but I just saw a black variation on this last year (can't recall the title, very boring) with a rich black couple who hire a surrogate.

With a slow start, the film becomes interesting after a while and becomes unexpected in a good way.

The "surprise" ending was predictable and pure BS.

Rehashed confusion .

This movie was pretty decent and enjoyable for most of it.

Of course, there are variations to the plot and story line, however, this is a newer version that attempts (and fails) to deliver an original story with a few more Sub Plots going on but at a VERY..SLOW.....

I was bored to death, almost fall asleep and in the end I was mad because I paid to watch it.

The script is unoriginal, bland, clunky, unsubtle and tedious.

Besides a rather bland performance from Cage, who wasn't asked to do much anyway, this movie is a rehash of similar plots before.

This was a 'Lifetime' drama meant for bored people needing a boost in the afternoon.

What it does have is solid acting by excellent actors (including Cage) and a fascinating story where you are ever quite sure which way the film will go.

An empty shell of a movie.

Engaging at best .

From the trailer to the end credits, I left a lamp on during the viewing so the suspense wouldn't be too intense.

Though expectations shouldn't be as high as the film could have been more filled, though the ending was left unpredictable.

The acting was sub par, the story, well, Boring.

It's not badly done, the acting is fine, it's just that the story line is so trite.

The film is surprisingly successful in juggling the odd tandem of a suspenseful crime story while maintaining an equal focus on the pregnancy theme.

The tempo picks up slightly towards the end, but by this point I'd already lost interest in the story (mainly down to the drawn-out first half of the picture where next to nothing actually happens).

For the viewer who is capable of wearing two hats (one for an entertaining thriller and one for a socially relevant topic) and is forgiving of one major blunder in screen writing, "Inconceivable" may result in an engaging film experience.

The pace of this film was *very* slow.

Don't waste your time unless you like predictable movies.

Slow, poorly directed, stilted acting.

A mostly dull uninteresting film with little in the way of surprises .

In the end, its not very good, and is much too slow and long to be enjoyed in that way either.

The camera work by Brandon Cox was exemplary with some stunning visual choices, especially with the uses of reflections on glass and mirrors.

One could easily have considered this a good watch except for the fact that the scenario has been done to death, which tends to make it all too predictable.

I like slow burning domestic thrillers with a crazy spurned partner-come- stalker and I found this movie ticked all the boxes, while remaining believable and not over the top.

The movie's pacing was really slow and I think some parts of it was unnecessary.

Don't waste your time.

This movie is beyond dull, and awful, and badly directed, with a story and performance of a movie worthy of Foxlife.

Don't waste your time .

Too Slow to Keep you on the Edge of your Seat .

The film becomes a bit too predictable and doesn't keep you guessing like a thriller should.

If the audience was left to wonder who was telling the truth, maybe it would have had more stakes and been kind of intriguing as a dumb thriller.

To that end, the film is flimsy, predictable and disingenuous in its delivery.

Dull, predictable and badly directed .

Leaving Las Vegas was a pure to the core drama, not this unspeakable, predictable elderly story.

Waste of time .

The only positive thing I have to say is that Nicky Whelan is stunning, but how does that help this bore of a movie?

Predictable except for one moment at the end, which was the only saving element in the plot line.

I think this movie is certainly worth the watch.

Suspenseful & Intense.

It's a silly movie with a banal and predictable story that deserves no attention.

Dont waste your time.

It's the sort of flick that stay at home mommies like to watch when they're bored senseless.

However pleasantly surprised with the all round decent acting however the film moves at such a slow pace by the middle you lose interest.

The plot was so obvious and predictable.

But on its own terms, it holds up reasonably well, especially in 2017, when so many films this year have been flat out unwatchable.

Another boring movie in the same, super rich, super stupid, pretty people genre.

There was some unexpected parts, and I think Gina and Nic did a wonderful job acting...

Completely predictable plot.

It had something that made me kept watching, but perhaps that was simply the misleading reviews that had me waiting for something worth watching.
