Roger Ebert Full Review
Good Faithful readers will notice that I have said almost nothing about the movie. That is because the movie entirely consists of plot twists and turns that cannot even be described without being revealed.

OPINION GRAPH

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

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 127 moviegoer opinions. These are some very mixed opinions. Fortunately, most of the opinions are pretty good, but with so many low to very low opinions you'll certainly want to be careful selecting this movie. I would suggest that you read the detailed moviegoer opinions to see what moviegoers liked and didn't like about this movie.

If you're male, your probability of truly enjoying "Wicker Park" is only about fifty fifty. That improves quite a bit if you're a teen. Older males mostly gave opinions that indicated the movie was pretty good to fair, but many gave very low opinions.

The opinions from the ladies were very similar to the guys. The teens enjoyed it very much and the opinions got worse as the age of the lady increased.

My suggestion? If you're a teen, this movie's for you and most of you will enjoy it. Older folks will want to decide how well they enjoy this type of movie before selecting to see it since only some adults enjoyed it.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
From the moment Matthew sees Lisa, nothing else matters. She walks past the window of the shop where he works in the Wicker Park section of Chicago, and he's immediately captivated; he follows her, they meet, and soon they fall deeply in love. Everything about their relationship seems perfect – until the day she disappears without a trace.

Two years later, Matt has built a new life for himself, but he's still haunted by her memory and the nagging torment of unanswered questions. Then he catches a quick glimpse of someone he thinks must be her in a bar…but is it? Thus begins a twisting, obsessive search for the woman who captured his heart years ago – and for someone who's playing with his mind right now. Intricately moving back and forth in time and revealing the story from varying perspectives, Matthew's search for the truth will lead him deeper into the mystery, with each discovery more deceiving than the next.

Obsession can go both ways, and Matthew discovers it's possible to love someone too much…
