Roger Ebert But is the movie about marriage, or sex, or murder, or the murder plot, or what? I'm not sure. It deals all those cards, and fate shuffles them. You may not like it if you insist on counting the deck after the game and coming up with 52. But if you get 51 and are amused by how the missing card was made to vanish, this may be a movie to your liking.
Jason Anderson Intriguing, well-played but somewhat stilted in its attempt to evoke both Douglas Sirk’s sumptuous melodramas and Alfred Hitchcock’s more light-hearted thrillers, the result has the same air of retro-fetishism as Todd Haynes’ Far From Heaven and Peyton Reed’s Down With Love.
James Berardinelli Married Life has enough plot twists and moments of high tension to keep the viewer engaged, but the main points of interest are the characters.
Tomatometer Witty but uneven.
