Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"I found the movie reasonably absorbing from moment to moment."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"Belabored and muddled movie, whose dreamy visual style and daring sexual material can't elide glaring inconsistencies in tone, plot and logic."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"Weak plot with grisly middle; should've been NC-17."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Like a long-lost relic from an earlier period best forgotten."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"Too self-consciously arty and irregularly paced."
‑ Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies
"[T]he character that Meg Ryan is playing so well here is so compelling. I think it's a wonderful performance that the movie is worth seeing for that."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"When In The Cut is good, it is very good."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"A failed thriller, if a thriller it was intended to be. But it is a great success as... a study of female sexual psychology in a world of hypermasculine violence."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"... a curious mistake rather than a disaster"
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"É uma pena constatar que, afinal de contas, Meg Ryan tirou a roupa por um filme que, ironicamente, também se encontra despido. Neste caso, de méritos artísticos."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"More of an intriguing project than a satisfying experience."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"It's not for everyone, but I couldn't take my eyes away."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"Should a movie be penalized for failing to be something it never tried or aspired to be? Perhaps the marketing is to blame, or the hype surrounding Meg Ryan's nudity."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"...would've been a whole lot better if it had been about 30 minutes shorter, but as it is, it's a barely passable thriller."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"A flaccid thriller as lifeless as the film's many decapitated corpses."
‑ Kent Turner,
