The review of this Movie prepared by Jack Bauer

This is a horrible remake of a classic movie about the young woman Marion Crane (Anne Heche) who steals some money from her boss and runs away and stops at the old run down Bates Motel to meet the young man who runs the hotel, Norman Bates (Vince Vaughn). Bates is ordered around by his crazy old mother who lives in the huge house next to the hotel and never comes out. Things start to go wrong when Marion is missing and can't be found by her friends and family the next day.
