Romantic Thriller Drama - Fans of Tom Cruise are the only audience likely to enjoy this
suspenseless remake of the Spanish thriller Abre los Ojos.
Fans of the original film will not enjoy this tension- and style-
free update. Sexual content makes the film inappropriate for
PROFANITY: Frequent use of strong profanity. SEX/NUDITY: Nudity, one rough sex scene, sex talk. VIOLENCE: A smothering with a pillow; a man is beaten. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Lots of alcohol. ACTION: A car crash. COMEDY: Some comic dialogue.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
We collected 169 moviegoer opinions. WOW, what a surprise. Most moviegoers did not enjoy "Vanilla Sky." It is extremely rare to see a movie receive so many very low opinions. I would recommend that you read all that we provide for this movie before deciding to see it. From these opinions I would say your chances of enjoying this movie are very low, UNLESS your taste in movies runs close to that of movie critics, who enjoyed "Vanilla Sky," as did a few of our moviegoers.
The one main complaint was that the story was very confusing. You couldn't tell what was going on. This same thing is what the moviegoers who rated this movie high, said they liked about the movie. So, if you enjoy strange storylines that make you think and try to figure out what's going on, you will probably enjoy "Vanilla Sky."
