The comic situations, veering from sly satire of middle class American concerns to broad Chevy Chase-style slapstick, are generally pretty funny.

A fine and imaginatively made movie, if a little overlong.

Kershner only grapples fleetingly with either idea and largely settles for a pedestrian, talk-heavy mystery.

It’s a real shame that such a great Annette Bening performance has ended up in such a dispiriting film...

Murder on the Orient Express

6

A film which largely does what it says on the tin and does so with enough overall style and charm to make it hard to resent.

It’s a bad melodrama that’s paradoxically well worth watching due to some truly great moments of cinema.

A well-crafted and involving thriller, albeit not quite a perfect one.
