Consensus: With miscast stars, a ludicrous plot and an obvious twist, Derailed embodies its name all too aptly.

Yet another in the seemingly endless line of stupid, generic thrillers that Hollywood foists upon the movie-going public.

[Derailed has] a ludicrous script whose twists and turns are laughably obvious or just plain laughable.

Someone had to work extra hard to make a movie this bad with two likeable leads like Mr. Owen and Ms. Aniston. I can't figure out why.

As long as Clive Owen is on his own, solving problems and planning revenge, Derailed is a reasonably gripping thriller.

Talent is involved everywhere in Derailed, and it all gets trashed in the final reel for the sake of teasing and then appeasing a bored November audience.

Ebert & Roeper

It has a great look, a couple of genuinely terrifying turns and a surprise or two that I didn't see coming. This is a flawed but stylish and entertaining thriller.

They Never Saw It Coming, teases the poster for Derailed, and you have to wonder if blindness is now a prerequisite for Hollywood characters.

One of those forgettable efforts that's neither bad enough to completely dismiss nor good enough to wholly recommend.
