It took 13 movies but I finally found a Hitchcock movie I dislike (although I thought The Birds and Marnie were average). I'm so saddened. The tone is all over the place! The first 25 minutes is a comedy where the dialogue is delivered fast and witty. Then after that it goes from Hitchcock at his darkest back to comedy back to dark. It would work if 1. It was a light comedy like Charade. 2. It's a serious thriller. 3. If it's a dark comedy and has a Dr. Strangelove-like tone. Also, they revealed the murderer 30 minutes into the movie. There's all suspense thrown out the window. Instead of following the characters until the reveal, the characters are playing catch up with the audience. We should never be two steps ahead of the characters. Instead of me being the edge of my seat until the end, I'm tapping my foot for 90 minutes waiting for the characters to found out the information I already know! It has the typical Hitchcock flare so I can't call it terrible, but there's way too much problems with the story and the tone for me to call it "Good" especially when it's made by the man who made Vertigo and Psycho! 4/10
