Careful What You Wish For Reviews

June 24, 2016
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.
June 10, 2016
Plays like a painfully stilted high school production of "Fatal Attraction."

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.
June 9, 2016
This erotic noir is about as substantial as one of its female lead's string bikinis, but it's an enjoyable trifle nonetheless.

Recycles the plots of a long list of movies as diverse as Body Heat and the Jennifer Lopez flop The Boy Next Door, with just a pinch of The Postman Always Rings Twice.

Jonas is incapable of making simple facial expressions, let alone evincing existential dread.
June 8, 2016
It boosts the filmmakers' case if you've never seen a thriller before.
June 8, 2016
If a movie's going to insist on its audience watching two people have an illicit fling for the better part of an hour, that couple needs to be a lot more charismatic.

Careful What You Wish For is a well-paced 91 minutes, with enough tortuous trysting the night away to kick off summer vacation at the lake.
