    Synopsis


    Fatal Attraction
    "Fatal attraction" has become a household term for love turned to murderous obsession, thanks to the success of Adrian Lyne's 1987 movie. Dan (Michael Douglas) is a family man whose one-night affair with Alex (Glenn Close) turns into a nightmare when she insists on continuing the relationship, claiming to be carrying his baby. Alex systematically terrorizes Dan, even temporarily kidnapping his daughter, in her attempts to win back his affection. Douglas' besieged family man guiltily tries to preserve his marriage and family from the consequences of his own indiscretion. Close's performance as the love-struck psycho-siren remains her signature role: She conveys the buried feminist message of the film in her challenge to Dan to take responsibility for his sexual behavior. Though many critics acknowlegded the film's striking similarities to Clint Eastwood's 1971 film Play Misty for Me, Fatal Attraction spawned numerous other movies about middle-class families besieged by a lone psychotic intent on infiltrating and destroying the fabric of the family unit, including The Stepfather (1987), Pacific Heights (1990), The Hand That Rocks the Cradle (1992), and Fear (1996). ~ Laura Abraham, Rovi

      The most overrated thriller ever made!

      Despite the A list stars (especially the scene-stealing Glenn Close) and intriguing plot elements (such as the story being set into motion due to the wrong decision the protagonist makes), when all is said and done, this is no better than your average slasher flick. There is obviously the slasher-inspired finale, which itself is matched in its absurdity by the equally jaw-dropping reactions of the wife (Anne Archer) in the aftermath. Even more damaging, though, is how unsympathetic the philandering husband (Michael Douglas) is. Unlike Clint in Play Misty for Me (and like the male protagonists in Poison Ivy & Swimfan), Douglas basically encourages his 'nemesis' every step of the way, despite the fact that there is nothing to indicate why he would throw everything he's shared with his spouse away.

      I remember when the film came out. Film goers were talking about it. Of course, the memorable lines & scenes. To me it has lost a bit of it’s edge over the passage of 21 years. Well acted by the 3 principles. 1 THING I HAVE ALWAYS HATED ABOUT IT & STILL BOTHERS ME TODAY. What was the deal with the kid Ellen's hair? I THOUGHT IT WAS A GIRL BUT WITH THAT BOYS HAIR CUT? A boy named Ellen? Some good extras on the DVD. Having the laser disc of the film I had already scene the “original ending” to the film. At the height of Michael's successful film streak in the 1980’s. With the purchase of this DVD I now have the 3 roles of Glenn's I like, besides this 1 "Air Force One" & "101 Dalmatians". ‘Don’t ignore it” JUST IGNORE THE KID’S HAIR CUT.

      I had this movie confused with Basic Instinct. When I finally figured out they were different movies, I give Basic Instinct a slight edge. Fatal Attraction portrays a psychotic woman bent on getting a married man who spent one weekend with her. Well done movie, all in all.

      Great acting and a good, suspenseful movie. Just don't watch it with a psycho girlfriend as it might give her ideas.
