I never fast-forward through movies, yet I really had to with this one, I couldn't bear to watch it as I didn't like the characters or the story at all.

One of Woody Allen's most accomplished films and different than those regular cheesy Hollywood crime flicks. The film is a debate with Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment, a philosophical thriller about class and infidelity. Allen argues that there is neither God, nor punishment, nor love to provide redemption. Highly recommended.

Another great Woody Allen movie. I wasn't overly impressed by the actors/acting but they were certainly adequate. The biggest positive was how this movie shifts from a drama to a thriller.

The "Fatal Attraction" of this generation. Suspenseful, creepy, surprising - all that.

Woody Allen continues to impress us as he creates a story about love and betrayal. Moreover, Allen successfully illustrates the aspect of fortune that alters our life.

Woody Allen channels Hitchcock and Albert Camus, fabulous, five stars

I felt like I was being led along to this pitiful dreary room that I didn't want to visit. I was very disappointed in what Woody Allen had created - it was overall creepy. Hated it.

Hey, let's remake Crimes and Misdemeanors with a younger, "hotter" cast, bad writing and acting, and no comedy!

I thought it was a good movie but would not rate it as high as some others. This is a well written movie but the main character is very creepy. It kept my attention but was nothing amazing. High marks for the twist in the ending.

as said "marvelous, sexy, and thrill"

This was one of Woody's best, there was no way you could have predicted the ending of the movie.

Tennis pro Chris Wilton takes a job as a tennis instructor and hits it off immediately with one of his students, wealthy young Tom Hewitt. Tom introduces Chris to his family and Chris falls quickly into a romance with Tom's sister Chloe. But despite the growing certainty that Chris and Chloe will marry, and the enormous professional and financial advantages that come Chris's way through his relationship with the delighted Hewitt family, Chris becomes increasingly intrigued and eventually romantically involved with Tom's fiancée, Nola Rice, a struggling American actress. Their passionate trysts leave Chris in danger of losing the wealth and position he has now come to enjoy. The only solution to the dilemma seems unthinkable...
