You know the writers are in trouble when they have to rely upon Hathaway's mother and Franco's grandmother to help out in the audience. All in all the show was mediocre, but not a disaster.

Marshall Fine | Posted 05.25.2011 | Entertainment
Marshall Fine

The Tourist is more like steerage than coach, a tarted-up piece of product that's flat and witless. Hopefully, Henckel von Donnersmarck will go back to making his own films and put Hollywood in his rearview mirror.
