Movie Fans Left Flabbergasted By How Stunningly Awful ‘The Woman In The Window’ Is

Just because a movie experiences an arduous production or road to release doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a kiss of death. Just look at Mad Max: Fury Road: George Miller’s masterpiece wrapped filming in 2012 and didn’t hit theaters until 2015! The film was, quite obviously, shot in the middle of the desert. A-listers Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron infamously didn’t get along. And yet, when it was all said and done, Fury Road wound up being one of the greatest action films of all time.

The same, unfortunately, cannot be said about The Woman in the Window, the new Amy Adams-starring thriller on Netflix.

Originally scheduled to be released in October 2019 — essentially a lifetime ago — The Woman in the Window was delayed until the Spring of 2020 to undergo reshoots following poor test screenings. Obviously, once 2020, the film was further delayed and was eventually sold to Netflix.

While the rest cast is glitzy — in addition to Adams, The Woman in the Window also stars Academy Award winners Julianne Moore and Gary Oldman, in addition to Wyatt Russell — the appearances from Moore and Oldman are nothing more than glorified cameos.

As such, The Woman in the Window currently holds a 29% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes. Outlets like The Ringer are publishing pieces titled ‘The Woman in the Window Should Never Have Seen the Light of Day’. And Twitter… Twitter is doing what Twitter does best and is absolutely tearing the film to pieces.

I was super hungover on Saturday, so I took like 2ish hours to watch, and let me tell you — every single one of these tweets is accurate. The only The Woman in the Window can be enjoyed is by treating it as an “it’s so bad, it’s good” experience and laughing your way through it.
