Woman In The House Across The Street Viewers Distracted By Plot Hole

Woman In The House Across The Street Viewers Distracted By Plot Hole

The Netflix series stars Kristen Bell as a child psychologist who's life is rocked by a personal tragedy

Viewers of Netflix's The Woman in the House Across the Street From the Girl in the Window keep getting distracted by a seemingly particular plot hole. Check the trailer out below:

Aside from having a stupidly long title that the marketing team must be laughing about because everyone's talking about it... the parody thriller follows Anna (Kristen Bell, who is also one of the show’s executive producers) who witnesses a brutal murder across the road from her.

Anna becomes suspicious of everyone around her, as she tries to piece together what really happened.

Her suspicions, however, are shared by fans of the show, who are more concerned about a broken mailbox along with a handyman named Buell (Cameron Britton).

In Anna's building is a broken mailbox and for multiple episodes, people can't work out why it's taking so long to fix it.


“The most disturbing thing about THE WOMAN IN THE HOUSE ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE GIRL IN THE WINDOW is the mailbox never getting fixed,” one viewer wrote.

Another added: "I know the movie is a parody but it bothers me so much that every single day Buell is fixing that damn mailbox.”

A third tweeted: "The scene where Douglas says they hired Buell to fix the mailbox and Anna says 'it still isn’t fixed!' sent me into orbit.

"Yeah, that’s comedy babe."

Someone else commented: "It was all over the place, had that man at the mailbox on every scene how long it takes to fix a mailbox."


Another said 'the mailbox repair man who is just endlessly repairing the same mailbox for no apparent reason' is 'maybe my favourite thing' about the series.

The premise of the show appears to poke fun at recent psychological thrillers such as The Girl on the Train and the more the recent The Woman in the Window, starring Amy Adams. 

Well, the official synopsis reads: “For heartbroken Anna (Kristen Bell), every day is the same. She sits with her wine, staring out the window, watching life go by without her. 

“But when a handsome neighbor (Tom Riley) and his adorable daughter (Samsara Yett) move in across the street, Anna starts to see a light at the end of the tunnel. 

“That is until she witnesses a gruesome murder... Or did she?”

If you're looking to watch the show, the full first season is available to watch on Netflix now.
