Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: Halle Berry and Robert Downey Jr being work colleagues, considering it's basically [[Film/XMen Storm]] working with Film/IronMan.


Added DiffLines:

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: ''Screen Rant'' [[https://screenrant.com/gothika-movie-bad-reviews-explained-reason/ examined]] how good a premise the movie had; a psychiatrist being admitted to her own hospital because she's unable tor remember the crime she committed. Unfortunately the plot gets very messy and has an unsatisfying resolution.
* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Despite the film's meandering plot and poor execution, it's agreed that Halle Berry gave it her all and delivered a very good performance as Miranda.


* CompleteMonster: [[MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate Dr. Douglas Grey]] and [[KillerCop Sheriff Bob Ryan]] are two {{sadist}}ic {{serial killer}}s and [[SerialRapist rapists]] who have destroyed countless lives for their depraved gratification. When Doug killed his first victim [[TeensAreMonsters when he was 15]], Ryan eagerly participated. They used the basement of a nearby cabin to keep their female victims alive for weeks, raping them repeatedly and filming it before finally killing them. They also used Doug's position as the [[PsychoPsychologist warden of a mental asylum]] to rape the inmates there, knowing that nobody would believe them. Doug and Ryan seemed to get off not only on the rapes but the power it gave them over their victims, with both noting that it made them [[AGodAmI feel like gods]].

to:

* SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments: Pete doing everything he can to help Miranda. Most telling is the scene where Ryan questions Miranda, only to then start yelling at her. Pete orders Ryan to back off and urges Miranda not to look when Ryan pulls out gruesome photos of Doug's dismembered body parts.
* TearJerker: Pete and Miranda's brief but tense argument, and his expression as he leaves the room.

* FridgeLogic: If a psychiatrist [[spoiler:suffered a mental breakdown and had to be committed, she'd hardly be committed to the same hospital she worked in. Particularly when it's a hospital for the criminally insane, with inmates/patients who no doubt harbour grudges against her]].
** When Miranda [[spoiler:wakes up in a cell after her murderous blackout]], Pete (RobertDowneyJr's character) tells her that he pulled some strings to have her [[spoiler:placed under his supervision]]. Otherwise, she would have ended up in another institution.
