Sweet Revenge Review

Supposedly a black comedy, Sweet Revenge gives us Helena Bonham Carter, Sam Niell, and Kristin Scott Thomas in an asinine homage to Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train, with Carter and Neill playing a "game" to drive a nuisance in each other's life over the edge. The comedy is certainly lost with rare exception here, with much of the film playing out while you sit back in your chair, just waiting for some inevitable spin to make it worthwhile in the end. Too bad, there isn't one.

Aka The Revengers' Comedies.
