Comments– The reason I rented The Cottage from Netflix was because it had a story that sounded a bit like The Collector. What I got was a british comedy that was boring at times, took forever to get to the main storyline, and very “meh”. Bridgette was VERY bored with this one, but still gave it a 4 (the way she talked about it, I expected it to receive a 2 at best). It was well-enough acted, and the story was interesting, it was just too long in the making, and the hour and a half seemed to last a lot longer. It had promise, but didn’t deliver on any of it. The story is this: two brothers kidnap a strip club owners daughter in hopes of getting a 100,00 pound (in british currency, not weight) ransom. But, about 45 minutes into the movie, seemingly out of nowhere, someone else starts hunting them. It was made out to be a horror movie from the Netflix description, but it is definitely a black comedy (or dark comedy, whichever you prefer). When it is funny, it is very funny, but there is too much “boring” floating around this one. Disappointing.
