The Next Three Days

Crime Drama Romance


 

A married couple's life is turned upside down when the wife is accused of a murder.

"The Next Three Days" is an arrogant American remake of a first-rate French film. However, the elegance of the original is completely lost in translation. Absurd, implausible, boring and disconnected are words that come to mind to describe this pretentious mishmash. Actually, the leading man has about as much charisma as a lump of mash, and this is far from his best work. The leading lady is merely forgettable. As a couple... who cares? This supposed thriller feels as though it drags on for three days - please don't waste your time.
