Very watchable and compelling.

But.

The plot holes and general not feeling right got on my tits.
Apart from the blood group question (I started a non spoiler thread on Chat) - shock horror- husband doesn't know wife's blood type; there was her going to hospital covered in blood and then remaining covered in blood for hours or days afterwards. Being wheeled into a room full of maybe 12 FBI agents to talk them through her 'kidnapping, captivity and rape'- where she held court and dictated the show. (maybe hospital bed, shower after examination and treatment, maybe a one to one with a specialist rape councillor would be the reality?).

Then she makes it all the way home covered in blood too!

Also assuming in the book that 'Amazing Amy' plot line was supposed to explain her psychopathic tendencies - it fucked her up forever...?

Also I'm assuming that throwing away all the different pens from the car was because she'd used them to fake the diary?

The stalker guy - is he supposed to be this side of nice to make you realise he's not the crazy she made him out to be? I thought he was a bit on the fence and not a 'loser' enough to convince she would have dumped him - rich intelligent, accomplished, erm.. Attractive, has a beautiful house.

And the cat - is he just a casual observer grin

Will read book but I think the film should 'stand' as is

Also she was bashed around the head with enough force to leave that huge pool of blood. Surely one of those FBI agents will have realised or checked for the injury?

I've read the book, but not seen the film. Surely the film can't be worse!

One of the detectives does see through her lies though, or in the book she does, but he stops helping her after Amy becomes pregnant.

The film is much worse.

I know that's nearly impossible but it's true.

What about the couple who robbed her - I get she changed her look after she ran away, but when she was found it had global coverage and all she had were a few extra highlights. Surely they'd have put 2 and 2 together afterwards!

The thing about going home covered in blood pissed me off too as it just would not happen!

Also did the wine bottle, erm, how do I put this...did it pot the pink or pot the brown? grin

And Afflecks GF with the "cum on me tits" as Amy put it - at the vigil did she actually expect him not to gush about his missing wife?! Did she think she was gonna get a big romantic gesture?!

Type into YouTube "Gone Girl Honest Trailer", very funny video!
