S. Solomonsaid on Tuesday, October 14, 2014 5:38:18 AMWhile entertaining, Gone Girl has some really implausible elements After discovering all those new gizmos in his sister's locked shed (How did the wife get in there anyway? ) why doesn't Affleck dump them? Amy, a writer of a children's series,constructs an elaborate plan to frame her husband for her faked murder, and also successfully covers up the murder of her wealthy friend. It's not believable that a crime victim would drive to her house instead of calling the local police and then transported to a hospital. And the diligent police detective is unable to investigate her activities because of the FBI taking over. Give me a break. His high priced attorney mentions his crack investigators, but we never see them .i 2 1/2 stars of 4.

Mikesaid on Friday, October 10, 2014 8:10:40 AMThis is not a terrible movie per se, but I was disappointed with it. My opinion of it is pretty much the same as my opinion of Gillian Flynn's novel. i just found it too implausible and it's hard to feel any sympathy for any of the characters. The biggest flaw is the horribly miscast Neil Patrick Harris as the rich playboy. There are just too many problems with this movie for me to recommend it. I would give this movie a "C".
