Its just funny that there are critics, who probably didnt know the twist beforehand, who still dissed Marion's role/performance after their first viewing. I wonder what the explanation for their "tainted" view is.
And there are other critics who praised Marion who didn't know the twist(Richard Roeper being a case in point).
