    "The Truth About Charlie" 10/25

    Regina ('Reggie') Lambert meets the charming Joshua Peters while vacationing in Martinique, just as she contemplates ending her whirlwind marriage to the enigmatic Charlie. But upon her return to Paris, she finds that both her apartment and her bank account have been emptied and that her husband has been mysteriously murdered. A trio of his old cohorts has begun shadowing her in hopes of answering their own questions about Charlie. Joshua is in Paris now, too and is ready to offer any help he can. However, the more Reggie learns the more she must find out to fill in the missing pieces of this puzzle and to protect herself from ever-increasing danger. Joshua lays a growing claim on her affection, even as disturbing information about him surfaces and undermines her trust. Hard-edged Commandant Dominique thinks Reggie herself is the most likely suspect. The attention of a straight-laced embassy official makes Reggie's situation even more complicated. But all she can do is carry on with the knowledge that in life, as in love, nothing is ever as simple as it seems.

    It seems very odd. I might see it.

    I saw a trailer for it the other day too.
    It did look interesting but I think this will be more of a rental than a theatre visit for me if I do see it.

    Of all the movies opening this week, it would be my pick if I had to see one. But I won't.

    From the Salt Lake Tribune:

    The thrill-free thriller "The Truth About Charlie" ranks as the second most unnecessary remake of 2002, behind "Mr. Deeds" but ahead of "Red Dragon" and "The Time Machine."
    "The Truth About Charlie" is an arty remake of "Charade," Stanley Donen's 1963 spy caper where Audrey Hepburn dodged bad guys through Paris while trying to figure out what side Cary Grant was on. (Of course, being Cary Grant, he was on the good side.) Director Jonathan Demme's remake slams the oven door on Donen's soufflŽ, sinking the thing faster than a stone thrown in the Seine.
    The rest of the article can be read there. 1-1/2 stars out of 4.

    Hmmm, I didn't know this was a remake.
    I suddenly no longer wish to see it.

    I can understand Red Dragon being remade, just so the three films have all been made with Hopkins as Lector.

    I might try and get the original.
    Give me Cary Grant over Maky Mark any day.
