    I found the record scratch in the narrative when she got robbed in the motel by her newly-made "friends" and how she got robbed. Perhaps she was spiraling out of control? But, either way, given that I also saw her as so meticulous, it seemed like a ridiculously shallow slip-up for her to make. It irked me, almost as if out of character/flow.

    Rosammund Pike took you into her character's psyche, which was the crux of the film. She blew that role out of the water.

    Ben Affleck was forgettable. His role was weak, his character making no lasting impression. He basically got swallowed, overshadowed, by the power that Pike brought to the screen. I really don't think he owned that character, in any real way.

    she was meticulous, but also used to an affluent/upper middle class life, and didn't really have the street smarts necessary to anticipate that kind of thing.

    @chickpea which one is yout hero? The animated character or the sick-bitch?

    I was admiring her too until i realized that she has done this before.

    Also it was a good reminder to me as to the punishment having to fit the crime and that there are two sides to every story.

    Get a few famous actors if you want to sell it. That seems to work all the time.

    Edit -

    I was half expecting Jennifer and Arctic to have watched the movie and liked it. Pinky swear.



    ^ Agreed Arctic agreed. I don't recall the names but I know I have seen one or two movies like that before.
    Re: the bolded

    @riva, @Jennifer -- I haven't seen the movie, and don't intend to, so I personally don't mind spoilers if you need spoiler tags to answer me...but does this movie (or the female lead)
    bear any resemblance to Body Heat (William Hurt / Kathleen Turner) ?

    I don't know. I actually never have seen that movie (although I'm well acquainted with those two actors).

    EDIT: I read the description on Wiki and Body Heat had so many characters it seemed a little confusing to track. There are pieces that are similar but not really what happens in that movie at all. In Gone Girl, the active cast seems smaller. The gist is that a man's wife goes missing; our perspective is that he is innocent, but then little things start happening that suggest maybe he might have actually killed her.... and things move forward from there.

    I thought the movie was alright. I thought it was too predictable to recommend it, though. They gave all the answers every step of the way while poorly trying to convince you otherwise.
