The Stepford Wives
When the story started to build some pace, it actually turned out to be quite good. I was convinced that the sheriff was dodgy from the beginning, but i thought he would have had a much larger role in the storyline and i was just waiting for that old fashioned out of place mansion to come back into play.
To me, probably the most positive point to make about the film, would be the fact that i found it so hard to work out the storyline and all the twists. Even when the women in the garden started to malfunction due to the alcohol, or at least that's what i thought happened.
The style and 'feel' changed so much during the movie, it really kept you on your feet trying to understand the story, if any one fell asleep during the more horror style scene, i expect they would have thought it was a completely different movie.
If you overlook the boring beginning of the movie, it was in fact very good, it was funny in allot of places, for example the mention of black people in Stepford, it was also tense and it had a great storyline.
