One-line Reviews (29)

I found the actors did a fine job of it, but the predictable plot it let down greatly.

For the story line mostly being people talking (think "Clerks", but serious), its really compelling to hear them piece together clues of a mystery and attempt to outwit Niki, who's basically a real-life super-villain (or a hero) to their worlds.

I gave the film an 8/10 as it was thoroughly enjoyable and above an average(good) 7.

It's pretty tough to keep things in a movie such as this both unpredictable and believable.

Returning to the couch more comfy that a warm hug from mother Theresa I plunged into the abyss of boring dialogue pro lapsing the many thoughts of sleeping.

In rest all talking and nothing happens.

Overall, the movie was boring.

So boring I nearly cut my wrists for it to be over .

Psychotic Bimbo Plays Pointless Practical Jokes on Moronic Gullible Ex's .

**********Two moronic ex's of psycho bimbo meet in bar (Boring Moron and Lesbian Moron) where psycho bimbo has arranged to meet some of her ex's, they babble on about how nuts psycho bimbo is till Moronic Ex No 3 turns up (Jazz Moron), they all swap boring stories about psycho bimbo and the latest news that psycho bimbo murdered somebody.

If you understand that the practice of making that, people talking for the length of a movie, is the hardest thing to make entertaining, then just know I was fully entertained by this film.

If your looking for a calm, predictable thriller to watch, this is the movie for you.

"Sexy Evil Genius" is a Comedy/Drama with snappy dialog that moves quickly from scene to scene and keeps one guessing as to the what led up to the opening moments of the film.

I know what the filmmakers were trying to accomplish by adding the flashback scenes, but it did muck up the plot and create some confusion.

And it's vastly entertaining.

" Shoot, even "Gilligan's Island" was more entertaining!

Amazing script & a highly entertaining execution.

Tl;dr If you like intelligent mind f***ing movies/books/animation you'll definitely recommend this to a friend despite the slow start.

Story progress, though interesting between different flash backs, was too predictable and annoyingly senseless.

Her wit and her charm, along with the fact that she is as Seth Green says in the movie a "sexy evil Genius" creates a plot that becomes wild and unpredictable (in a good way).

If you suffer from insomnia this is the cure for you !

**********There you go I have just saved you 88 minutes of your life by reading this instead of watching this desperately boring movie that tries hard to pretend to be a suspense but is more like watching paint dry in a lunatic asylum...

The second: Even absent a billion dollar budget, CGI, 3-D, spectacular shoot-outs, or gratuitous nude scenes, a decent script, coupled with impressive acting is, as always been, damn entertaining.

I found fascinating the gradual working out of the individual back stories and how they feed into the equally gradual build-up to what she's been planning.

BORING .

Brilliant, cerebral, funny, engaging; fine acting, fine script.

That being said; I found the plot intriguing, the acting exquisite and the actors engaging.

engrossing film...

A Total Waste of Time .
