No Dream House For Rachel Weisz.

Not to torture a metaphor, but The Wrap suggests this film could have been built upon a more sound foundation:

When a movie with an A-list cast like Daniel Craig, Naomi Watts and Rachel Weisz, under the direction of Oscar nominee Jim Sheridan (“In America,” “My Left Foot”), doesn’t get screened for the press, the assumption is that the studio has a colossal stinker on its hands.

But if the makers of “Dream House” had been willing to knock down a few walls and get back to the foundation, they might have really had something. The premise and the execution hold a lot of promise, but the film’s climactic reveal will be incredibly obvious to anyone paying even the slightest amount of attention.
