After reshoots and multiple delays, mystery thriller The Woman in the Window has finally released on Netflix - to overwhelmingly bad reviews. Based on the book of the same name by A.J. Finn and adapted for the screen by Tracy Letts, The Woman in the Window has a score of 29% on Rotten Tomatoes as of the time of writing.

The Woman in the Window stars Amy Adams as Dr. Anna Fox, a child psychologist who has become confined within the walls of her New York home by her crippling agoraphobia. Anna's only escape comes from watching her neighbors and monitoring their lives. This hobby proves dangerous when Anna witnesses the murder of her new neighbor, Jane Russell, through the windows of the house across the street. Things only become more complicated when she reports the murder to the police and it's revealed that Jane Russell is not only alive, but is a completely different woman from the Jane Russell that Anna met.

Originally set for theatrical release in October 2019, The Woman in the Window underwent rewrites and reshoots after test screenings returned poor reactions from audience members. It later underwent further editing and pick-ups after changing hands in Disney's acquisition of 20th Century Fox, and its new May 2020 release date was scuppered by the coronavirus pandemic. Netflix picked up the distribution rights in August 2020, and The Woman in the Window released on the streaming platform on May 14, 2021. Was it worth the wait? Not according to these reviews.
