James Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average "If your reason for seeing In the Cut is to watch America's sweetheart stripped bare, you'll get what you're looking for. On the other hand, if you're looking for a good movie, this one will disappoint.''

TV Guide Online Full Review
Average "Ryan is raw and remarkably good, but the film's real star is New York. Draped in post-9/11 anxiety and brimming with a free-floating fear, the city hasn't appeared this threatening since the '70s.''

Newsday Full Review
Average "What In the Cut probably needed was a narrator - which is usually the mark of a movie in trouble, but would have been a lifeline here. Ryan changes lanes with ease enough, although to call it a breakthrough would be to wax hyperbolic, because there's not enough heft here to penetrate a cheese sandwich."

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We were only able to collect 26 moviegoer opinions even though we had people collecting from several showings. Apparently lots of people had a feeling this wouldn't be a good movie and from these opinions they were certainly correct. Normally I would say that these few opinions don't provide a real accurate indication of what most people would think of the movie BUT, since these are by far the lowest opinions I have ever seen, and I've seen a LOT of opinions over the years, I would feel comfortable NOT RECOMMENDING THIS MOVIE TO ANYONE!

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
Fans of Meg Ryan's normal light romantic comedy films will undoubtedly be shocked by this dark, violent, sexually explicit adults-only thriller. However, fans of the thriller genre will also be unsatisfied with the slow pacing and the predictable mystery. The violent and sexual content will turn off the more squeamish viewers. It's difficult to imagine this film finding much support from any audience.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Frannie Avery (MEG RYAN) is a self-determined writing professor living alone in New York. Smart and reserved, Frannie has nevertheless allowed her study of street slang and detective novels to keep her at a safe distance from the gritty side of the city. But everything changes one night when, while meeting a student in a local bar, Frannie walks in on an intimate moment between a man and a woman. She is instantly paralyzed by the eros before her, and though she does not see the man's face, she cannot forget the tattoo on his wrist or his brazen stare.

Soon after, Frannie learns of a grisly murder near her apartment when, unexpectedly, a police detective insists on questioning her. The strangely familiar and alluring Detective Malloy (MARK RUFFALO) believes she may know something. At first, Malloy mystifies Frannie, and although she tries to keep him at a distance, Frannie becomes attracted. They meet for a drink, and Malloy offers to be anyone she wants him to be, a promise that frightens Frannie almost as much as the tattoo on his wrist. Even as Frannie's half-sister Pauline (JENNIFER JASON LEIGH) encourages her to continue the relationship, doubts linger, and Frannie has to fight the urge to run away as is her habit.

As the investigation continues, Frannie finds herself propelled further and further into both the increasingly gruesome murder case and an increasingly risky liaison with Malloy, who opens her up in ways she cannot fathom. When a masked assailant attacks her, it becomes clear that Frannie can no longer trust anyone. Not her intense young student Cornelius (SHARRIEFF PUGH), who is writing a paper about the "innocence" of serial killer John Wayne Gacy. Not her disquieting former lover John (KEVIN BACON) who follows her every move. And definitely not Malloy, who now rouses not only her deepest desires but her darkest suspicions about the danger encroaching around her.
