Drowning in dissapointment

Being a big fan of fairy tales, especially their relevance to our modern lives, I thought that the perfect film for me had come into existence.

At a rundown apartment complex a mundane, bored with life handy man stumbles across a water nymph trying to save humanity from its own ignorance.
After convincing him she is more than just a nut job he attempts to get her back home,... read more

so-so plot, but great acting + great sce

no, unlike typical M. Night Shyamalan's films, this doesnt really have any 'twists'

yes, the story is far-fetched, and every part of the plot just falls exactly in place - as you'd expect in a bed-time story

yes, it mixes a real-life enviroment (an apartment complex in present-day) with mythical creatures and fantasy and legends - usually NOT a good mixture (example, ... read more

After growing accustomed to the style of M. Night Shyamalan and his twisted endings, some may not appreciate the straightforward fantastical story presented in Lady in the Water. I was one of those people as the storyline was less than appealing and seemed to drag on with the ultimate resolve being very ordinary. It seems the magical run of M. Night Shyamalan and his stories have finally come back... read more

"Lady in the Water" (2006)

“FIRST IMPRESSIONS

Right before this movie started, I said to myself, "Let's get this over with." I knew it was going to be bad… but I didn't think this bad! This was damn near intolerable!

The plot is that Cleveland, an apartment complex handyman, finds a mysterious woman (named Story) in the pool, discovers that she's an entity from an old bedtime story, and has to use clues from the tale to help her get home.

First of all, the dialogue in this movie is hideously bad, especially from Story herself!

But it was Cleveland's asking around for information that constantly aggravated me. He's making himself sound insane, but no one ever questions him! And it's just ludicrous how the group of people he assembles just goes along with it, no questions asked” read more

"5.7. M. NIGHT SHYAMALAN MARATON Shyamalanin kuittailu kriitikoille on hulvatonta ja älykästä. Muuten ihmisten tulisi muistaa, että satuihin uskominen ja Tittelituu-maan etsiminen on tärkeämpää kuin oikea elämä, koska muuten maailma tuhoutuu. Jälleen kerran aivan uskomattoman vammainen elokuva paskan elokuvataiteen mestarilta. "

50 Most Hated Movies Ever Made (51 movies items)

"The Movie: M. Night Shyamalan branches out by making a kid-friendly fantasy based on the bedtime stories he made up for his children. Why It Was Hated: Never mind the muddled narrative and wet world-building. Shyamalan earned the biggest wrath for casting himself as a visionary writer whose work will save the world. Not on this evidence. Typical Online Review: "Don't even get me started with "Lady in the Water". That was one of the worst excuses of a movie I've ever watched! You could have don"

Movie Diary 2012 (551 movies items)

"16.2. Todellinen narsismin elokuvallinen huipentuma. Shyamalania vituttaa hänen elokuvilleen kohdistettu kritiikki, joten hän tekee kriittistä katsojaa henkilökohtaisesti loukkaavan valkokangasmasturbaation ja maksimoi tyydytyksensä tappamalla kusipäisen kriitikkohahmonsa nolostuttavan "tragikoomisella" tavalla. Bryce Dallas Howard pelasti ihanuudellaan salaisen paheeni The Villagen hieman typerältä juoneltaan, muttei tällä kertaa pääse edes yrittämään samaa, ja Paul Giamatti on "
