    The strapping Owen as a guy who can't handle himself and cutie-pie Aniston as a witchy woman? I don't think so. Talk about derailed. show more

    Jennifer Aniston brings a needed liveliness to Derailed, though not enough to go around. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Owen is all right as the harried husband whose relationship at home has turned frosty, but the essential heat between him and Aniston is missing. The actress succeeds in shedding her "Friends" persona, but there's something missing here, especially as things get knottier. show more

    James Siegel's best-selling thriller Derailed is a perfect commuter book that has become the most imperfect of movies. show more

    This flaccid psychological thriller keeps spoiling its own surprise by constantly signaling the big plot twist. show more

    Derailed has a great setup, a good middle passage and some convincing performances. Then it runs off the tracks. show more

    Allison Benedikt Chicago Tribune

    It's a cheap thrill, with twists that later seem evident and foreshadowing that often seems obvious, with a B-movie look and vibe reminiscent of the much tighter "Jagged Edge." show more

    Sexy, but also very suspenseful.

    Clive Owens is great in this film. The emotion that he showed in this suspense ---keep you on the edge of your seat................But the ending was done so beautiful, showing that Owens won and brought down the bad guy.................Hooray for him. Can wait to see he new movie international. Thank you, Grace, Brooklyn
