I was very happy to discover this hidden gem on Quikfliks as I had not known of it before. I did find it 'irresistibly' suspenseful and I enjoyed the great shots of Melbourne. I'm a big fan of Susan Sarandon and felt that she had a very worthy support cast in this film.
This is a good movie and worth watching.
If you love suspense, Susan Sarandon and Sam Neil mixed with Australian accents.....you'll love this movie... unsure of who is the evil one and when you think you've got it all sorted, there's another twist!
Best movie I have seen in a long time!
Possibly the worst, most disjointed and horrible movie ever made. Avoid at all cost!
An interesting movie, with a good storyline, but thought it could have been made heaps better. Emily Blunt and Susan Sarandon excellent. A little disappointing for me.
Fairly weak plot. Okay acting, but quite hard to get into the story and identify with the characters. The extra twist at the end was hamfisted. This movie left us unsatisfied.
Thanks Alex H. for giving away the ending in your review, gees.
Enjoyable film with excellent performances. Could have been a bit more suspenseful.
Powerful movie, well acted by Susan Sarandon
Couldn't get involved with this at all.
ok Emily Blunt is HOT, even with the bung eye, the story is a bit absurd, i only watched cus it was set in Melbourne, although why that was is more of a mystery than the actual story, there is a twist but you'd be dumb not to see it coming and yes that is the girl from the snakes ad, should of put her in the editing suite
"chop it dad" 3 stars is being kind
strange, and hard to get into worth. Keeps you watching though! Not my favourite thriller, but worth a watch if you have nothing else to do.
This movie was goog but not great. Quite predictable.
very slow to get going, weak plot.
You know how the story is going to fold the minute the film starts.
We really enjoyed this film, good aussie movie, kind of messes with the mind, kept us guessing to the end.
Irresistable was a very good movie.Very well done. The two main actresses were excellent in their roles. Very believable. In all a good movie
Susan Sarandon was great as always, but it definitely didn't hold my attention - especially in the middle. Did have an interesting ending though.
Susan plays a great 'i'm crazy but i'm not crazy' part. This movie has its moments but is more than a little predictable. Not bad for a Sunday arvo watch though.
i loved this movie - very unpredictable - i would never have guessed the ending.
Very good actors very badly cast, it is long, slow, sententious and a chick flick in the worst possible sense of the term. The idea is good if simple and much of the photography is excellent, though the music and sound are extremely heavy handed. In a way it comes as a surprise that with so many things done so well it ended up as bad as it is.
Excellent movie. Not predictable at all. It has a twist.
Enjoyable aussie movie, predictable but still made me watch. But the ending....will there be another one?
Sloooooooooooow. Clever in parts. Reasonable acting.
Unusual not as great as I thought it was going to be though
An interesting Australian thriller. It kept me guessing what was going on, and I didn't see the full picture until the very end, which was great.
orright I suppose..an Aussie drama that is not too oreductable..the ending is the best bit if u can get thru the to it!! a 5/10..my wife gave it a 8/10..so it is watchable..
Solid performance by Susan Sarandon makes this movie worth a watch. Quite a good thriller.
Absolutely terrible despite all the great actors. Problem is a really clunky screenplay, which produces laughable 'scary' situations where Susan Sarandon puts on her best 'thinking' face....avoid.
Good twist but a little slow at times.
Excellent Australian film, which is too rare. Susan Sarandon is as good as ever and so was Emily Blunt. A definite must see for thriller fans.
Thought this movie seemed really poorly directed and acted. I usually like aussie movies, but this one did just not click with me.
Very deep plot with interesting twists in story line. Excellent local production for an Australian movie with a great cast.
This movie is sooo clichéd. Truly a piece of odious monotony. Overly sentimental, but at the same time silly and unbelievable. Emily Blunt is cute though!
This Australian film, set in Melbourne, portrays an intriguing relationship between a well adjusted couple. The arrival of an attractive female to the architects office in which the husbund works turns out to be the daughter of the artist wife. After some complications all ends well. The acting is superb!!!!
Well done....watch,u won't regret it
Unique, chilling, twisted... excellent.
I really enjoyed this movie. Great to see a good aussie movie.
Excellent performances, kept me watching. It fits in the genre with those others (SWF, THTRTC) but so what? Its a fine, creepy movie in its own right. 3 1/2 stars
Excellent! well worth it. Emily Blunt fantastic!
After reading the reviews of this movie I quickly added it to my queue but I was a little disappointed. Yes the twists were unexpected, but the whole film was a little weird most of the way through. OK for people who dont mind something abit strange but dont rush it to the top of your list.
I would class it as more of a thriller than a drama too.
I didn't enjoy this all that much it was very dissapointing that susan sarrandon didn't have an australian acsent but other then that i get the feeling like this movie has been made before. Not very origanal
Excellent. Kept you on the edge of your seat.
Predictable, depressing and just no fun at all.
I didn't make it all the way to the end of this one. Very amateur hour - it almost felt like a student film. The usually fantastic Susan Sarandon was seriously mis-cast. Maybe it got better in the end but I didn't stick around to find out.
This film got pretty rough treatment from reviewers but is better than that would lead you to expect.
Not bad for an Aussie flick. But it was very predictable.
Great watching, entertaining and totally non prodictable
Very entertaining, particularly liked Susan Sarandon's portrayal.
Really enjoyed this - surprised that it hasn't been more widely recognised/praised. The tension was terrific and the twist shocked me.
Great storyline with an interesting twist at the end. Susan Sarandon was excellent, but it was kind of weird to see her driving around Melbourne passing trams etc!!
found it kinda weird ,was ok
i enjoyed the movie even my daughter enjoyed it as well
Quite enjoyable. Though why filmakers feel the need to exaggerate aussie-isms I don't know. The accent was a bit cringe-worthy in places
Susan Sarandon plays her role magnificently yet it is one of those films that you want to shout at the main character - don't do that, don't go back to the house!
Okay you know it won't help because they can't hear you yet you become involved. The film envelopes you and takes you on a journey of intrigue, a journey of pain and curiosity, it's like the book you can't put down.
You're not sure what is going on and wonder why the main character wants to have anything more to do with the woman she accuses of trying to kill her.
You discover a world of obsession, a sense of drive and determination and a part expertly executed by Susan Sarandon, she takes neurosis to a new level and you are hooked.
Not a bad movie and not a good movie!! Could have been better but was watchable.Wrong Title for the movie for a start so you make up your own minds about it.
Good movie but disappointed with the ending as it's one of those that leaves you with a couple of scenarios that could happen.
Diabolical. I was almost moved to write to Susan Sarandon and ask what on earth has possessed her to make this awful bloody movie. Of particular amusement was the 'evil daughters' miraculous recovery from third degree burns with not a scar in sight!! I was so very disappointed indeed. Worst movie I have seen for some time.
Susan Sarandon and our Sam Neil make a great team in this movie.
not bad but seen it all before waste of susan sarandon's talent.
this was a great aussie suspense movie the initial plot led you one only
for everything to change in a thrilling ending . Blunt and saradon were supberb.
A reasonably predictable 'someone makes someone else look crazy' style thriller but there are some good plot twists and the acting is solid. Susan Sarandon is as always excellent but Sam Neill and Emily Blunt are also good. It's nice to see an Aussie movie that doesn't go out of its way to use every single stereotype about Australia you can cram into 90 minutes.
I don't know if it's just me but I didn't get the ending really. In fact, I felt they took the easy way out. I couldn't work out why the mystery daughter's best friend happended to be the same young actress playing the other daughter - that just confused me... Not involving enough.
I was bored, found myself watching the time go by on the DVD player.
This was such a twisted movie and it just makes you hate the young girl for what she does. The twist is at the end of the movie. Definitely one to watch.
Not bad but it was a bit weird seeing Sarandon running around in the streets of Melbourne. Took away the authenticity of the storyline
Entertaining movie, although I wouldn't really call it a thriller ... more a drama....
Well I thoroughy enjoyed it ! Not too scary movie that held the suspense and even I did not see the twist at the end coming. Great that is was set in Australia too.
I enjoyed watching irresistable.
What an awful waste of talent and resources: appalling script full of cliches and poor characterisation. Woeful direction despite the best efforts of the actors.
Great cast, great direction. Bit of mind game thriller type movie.
A bit slow, good in parts but dragged on a bit.
Great acting by Susan Sarandon as always however this affects the other b grade aussie actors you realise how terrible they are....all in all good story line and great twist at the end
Not sure about this one...worth a look if you like a predictable story
keeps you guessing till the end quite good
A great twist. Susan Sarandon was fabulous.
Very good acting and a neat twist to the plot
has some attention holding elements, but pretty similar to other thrillers like 'single white female' and hand that rocks the cradle'. was pretty obvious what was going on pretty early in the film.
Good solid cast; a couple of spooky moments, and an intriguing premise, until a particular scene between father and daughter gave away the plot. Still worth a look.
