However, others were less keen. "#TheWomanInTheWindow is decent enough for the first half but becomes beyond ridiculous and laughable in the third act that completely kills any momentum it still had," one viewer argued. "Despite Amy Adams great performance this was a very unsatisfying and strangely edited thriller. Hitchcock this is not."

Someone else echoed this, describing the film's ending as "so hilariously bonkers and maddening, you kinda gotta to see it to believe it."
