A decade from now, Wheatley’s "Rebecca" will have faded from the memory, entirely eclipsed by Hitchcock’s interpretation.
Although missing opportunities to present a memorable production, this doesn’t demand much from its audience and, in the process, delivers something unsettling.
The film suffers from an overly-familiar narrative – other films have told with greater power similar stories of lost, self-destructive souls.
Geraldine Viswanathan is the reason to see this by-the-numbers rom-com.
This movie is passable popcorn entertainment – a two-hour distraction that won’t stand the test of time but was never intended to.
A period piece likely to find more appeal among the Masterpiece Theater/art-house crowd than those in search of something less conventional.
More successful when focusing on the unlikely romance between its stars than the silly and underwhelming murder mystery.

Not enough to expand the movie’s appeal beyond the narrow demographic of fans representing its target audience.
A solid throwaway B-movie that probably thinks it has more to say than it actually does but is entertaining nonetheless.
