Critic's Review Heading

USA Today Full Review
Average Deception is not the cool, noirish thriller it tries to be. Despite a cast that includes double-crossers Hugh Jackman and Ewan McGregor and Michelle Williams caught in the middle, the film is a yawn.

OPINION GRAPH

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

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 34 moviegoers:
TEENS:The two teens loved it.
ADULTS:Only about a third of the males truly enjoyed "Deception" rating it "Very Good" or higher. Most rated it as "Good/Average," which is decent but certainly not great. Unfortunately, quite a large percentage rated it as only being "Fair." The female reviews are a little better, but not by much. About half rated it "Very Good," which indicates above average, but more of the ladies rated it low to very low. I can't recommended "Deception" at full theater ticket prices. If you want to see it, a matinee may be a good option otherwise this one looks like a decent rental later.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
"Are you free tonight?”

A simple enough question, but how Jonathan McQuarry (EWAN McGREGOR) answers it will change his life forever. A corporate auditor adrift in a sea of New York's power elite, Jonathan's work is his entire life. But a chance meeting with Wyatt Bose (HUGH JACKMAN), a charismatic corporate lawyer, introduces Jonathan to a decadent playground for Manhattan's executive upper crust. For these power brokers, whose eighteen-hour workdays leave no time for a personal life, there's "The List” – a sex club, of sorts, where the right cell-phone number and four simple words ("Are you free tonight?”) can lead to an evening's sexual fulfillment.

It's a world of "intimacy without intricacy,” as Jonathan's first conquest (or vice versa) explains to him, and through The List Jonathan discovers a side of himself that he didn't know existed. But an affair with a ravishing and mysterious stranger known to Jonathan only by her first initial ‘S' (MICHELLE WILLIAMS), will expose him to yet another world he never imagined – one of betrayal, treachery and murder.
