I agree, but not a single dull moment.
Family Plot was Hitchcock's last film before he became too ill to work, and it's a cheeky romp of a thriller about a "psychic" who promises to find a rich woman's lost heir, her con man boyfriend who actually does the work, and a couple of kidnappers, one of which is that heir. In other words, the heir has many reasons NOT to be found, and no inkling they just want to hand him a fortune, rich ground on which to sow the seeds of misunderstandings and suspense. It's not serious enough to be one of the greats I suppose, but there's lots to love, especially the crazy car chase at the center of the film. As exciting as it is ridiculous.
Enjoyable, not as cruel as some of his earlier films.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
