    Ruthe Stein San Francisco Chronicle

    The desperation TV stars must feel to be on the big screen is the only explanation for Edie Falco and Elisha Cuthbert's appearance in The Quiet, a creepy family drama that reeks of pretentiousness. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Trapped between edgy art flick and exploitation psychothriller, The Quiet manages to be neither, and manages to be pretty awful in the bargain. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    A screamingly bad melodrama whose message seems to be that people who think they're talking to a deaf person admit things they wouldn't admit to themselves. Silence, please. show more

    This ludicrously plotted drama of incestuous sexual abuse is only partially redeemed by its strong performances. show more

    Rick Groen The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Characters already too wicked to be credible start doing stuff simply too stupid to be believed, with no help from a cast way too overmatched to be useful. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    A movie of good intentions and awful results. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    A repugnant little indie black comedy, poorly acted in hideous-looking digital video, guaranteed to send audiences fleeing for the nearest shower. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    Too confused to provide any thrills, even indecent ones. show more
