June 29, 2016
As a purported erotic thriller, it's neither particularly erotic nor remotely thrilling.

Everything that comes before is rote and by-the-book, from the groan-worthy innuendo-laden puns to the two-dimensional cookie-cutter characters, it's a color-by-numbers thriller that's flat.

Nick Jonas stars in clichéd thriller with sex, language.

June 19, 2016
In the mood for a teen twist on a James Cain mystery, with a soupcon of T&A? You could do worse than this slick variation on 'Double Indemnity.' ... The cinematic equivalent to beach reading.

There's a rhythm to these things, and screenwriter Chris Frisina has certainly watched his share of late-night cable TV thrillers.

"Careful What You Wish For" might have been a better film had the two leading ladies, McClure and Lucas, switched roles. But not that much better.

A film that tries to be both titillating and suspenseful but is neither.
