My wife, Sue, and I really enjoy these books. Unfortunately, the comedy didn't carry over into this movie—at least not for us. Sue wanted to leave after a half an hour, and Sue never wants to leave a movie. One interesting thing is that "women's night out" at the movies is really catching on, which is both fun and energizing. But this movie ain't no Devil Wears Prada.
There's a lot of terrific photography and pretty good acting, but this is a thriller and thrillers aren't supposed to drag. The script goes back and forth—sometimes very intelligent, sometimes kind of dopey. I'm okay with thrillers like this, but I think a lot of people will be somewhat disappointed. The scene at the Guggenheim might be worth the price of admission though.
