    Jack MathewsNew York Daily News

    The star of this overachieving trifle is not Kidman, it's Paul Rudnick. The New York playwright and screenwriter ("In & Out") has taken a pair of dated watermarks from the '70s - Ira Levin's horror novel and its faithful 1975 movie adaptation - and turned them into a broad, feverishly fey parody. show more

    Because the entire audience knows what's going on, the filmmakers hope to distract viewers from storytelling weaknesses with an urgent sense of style. show more

    The 1975 movie tilted toward horror instead of comedy. Now here's a version that tilts the other way, and I like it a little better. show more
