DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Thriller Horror Sci-Fi - This is a period film that begins as a straightforward thriller then ends as a much weirder, more science fiction/fantasy film. Those looking for something easier to follow won't find it here. The film's dark themes make it inappropriate for younger children.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good This movie kept me involved and intrigued, and for that I'm grateful. I'm beginning to wonder whether, in some situations, absurdity might not be a strength.

USA Today Full Review
Below Average This story spins off in ridiculous directions, with forces from other dimensions and zombie-like characters come into play.

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 95 moviegoers:
OUCH! These are the worst reviews I believe I've seen in years. It has always amazed me how some people can rate a movie Fantastic while others rate it Terrible, but this is certainly one of those movies. I would say your probability of enjoying "The Box" is very low.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
What if someone gave you a box containing a button that, if pushed, would bring you a million dollars…but simultaneously take the life of someone you don't know? Would you do it? And what would be the consequences?

The year is 1976. Norma Lewis (CAMERON DIAZ) is a teacher at a private high school and her husband, Arthur (JAMES MARSDEN), is an engineer working at NASA. They are, by all accounts, an average couple living a normal life in the suburbs with their young son…until a mysterious man with a horribly disfigured face appears on their doorstep (FRANK LANGELLA) and presents them with a life-altering proposition: the box.

With only 24 hours to make their choice, Norma and Arthur face a momentous moral dilemma. They soon discover that the ramifications of this decision are beyond their control and extend far beyond their own fortune and fate.
