    Reader comments on The Door in the Floor

    Subject: Saw the movie for the 1st time on cable
    Date: Jul 27, 2006
    Sender: curbfaninkcPrevious

    I stumbled across this moive on cable and had my DVR record it- and what a treat it is.

    PROS: Where so many other movies based off books fail- see Kiss Kiss Bang Bang - this movie was translated well from the canvas onto the screen (with all the quirky humor scenes well in-tact). If you like well written films, with sublte surprises around every corner- you will love this film. This is the sort of movie you would ordinarily find casted my no-name actors, but at no extra charge you get an almost exclusive all-star cast featuring Jeff Bridges and Kim Basinger. I am reluctant to menton the gratuitous nude scnes with 2 of Hollywood's most beautiful women, because the movie is so great even without them (but the nude scens are hot). Thank you for making an original movie that did not leave me regretting the time I spent watching it (like so many blockbusters do these days).

    CONS: If you like to go to movies and be entertained without thinking too much, you will still enjoy this one, but you won't love it. Also, at a few times during the movie, the action appears to drag or become overly predictable. I admittingly did not have attnetion-span to watch it in one sitting, but still enjoyed the film nonetheless.
