Before I Go To Sleep is a twisted stalker movie which will leave you feeling frustrated and angry…that you wasted the time and money on this movie. I’m giving it a D. As in Don’t bother seeing it. While the movie had star power- Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman, it couldn’t get past the poor writing. I spent the drive home discussing how I’d have done things differently and made the movie better.
Nicole Kidman plays an amnesiac who forgets the last 20 years of her life each night while she sleeps. Basically she wakes up a blank slate. As she frantically tries to remember her life and her past, we see things aren’t always what they seem. The best part for most guys is that we do see Nicole’s naked behind but as my husband said… it wasn’t that great.
Seriously, the amnesia wife is much funnier in 50 First Dates and Fatal Attraction is a tough stalker movie to live up to. Before I Go To Sleep isn’t funny and while the suspense and twists keep you guessing, after the movie, they make you wonder… why bother… why did the characters bother and why did I bother to see the movie. Even if you were an amnesiac, you still won’t be able to get the time or money back from this movie!
It's all about the movies...
