    A thriller that's very good until the relatively absurd ending.

    This is essentially a dumber and more sexist remake of Play Misty for Me; the main female characters are relatively undimensioned and most of their being derives from their relationship to the male character, Dan Gallagher has an affair for no evident reason at all and is presented as the victim rather than (at least) the author of his own misfortune, and Alex (who with a slight retelling would be the tragic hero of the piece) has to be presented…

    Fatal Attraction

    Well, what am I supposed to do? You won't answer my calls, you change your number. I mean, I'm not gonna be ignored, Dan!

    Like Gone Girl except the "psycho bitch" dies at the end, and the audience could rejoice knowing that Dan Gallagher could be happy again with his family because he learnt his lesson, alright!…

    "This has got to stop."- Dan Gallagher

    Fatal Attraction is underrated Thriller that stars Michael Douglas, Glenn Close, and Anne Archer. All three of them deliver in spades, but it was Douglas who impressed me most despite being the only one of the three who wasn't nominated for an Oscar. I thought he brilliantly portrayed his character throughout. I also really enjoyed the story. I don't see how anyone can see this film and ever think about cheating on their…

    Well made erotic thriller trash. I don't mean trash in too negative a fashion, though. The story has a very pulpy thriller feel, with the woman wronged by an awful man who she ends up going insane over. It's filled with very over the top attempts at portraying that psychotic break that are very entertaining on a smaller visceral level. Yet, Michael Douglas and Glenn Close do such a fantastic job of portraying both character archetypes that one can't help…

    Not very responsible, is it? I know it was the '80s, but damn.

    If your wife is 80's Anne Archer, why would you cheat on her?

    Again, If your wife is 80's Anne Archer, why would you cheat on her?

    Douglas just can't keep it in his pants in Fatal Attraction, a very dated 1980's film that doesn't know if it wants to be a soap opera or a psychological thriller. The movie finally makes the choice in the third act and then we're really cookin'.

    FA is worth seeing once for Glenn…

    Extremely iffy in its character psychology and morality, functions only really as pure thriller nowadays. Works particularly well because of the genuine chemistry between Douglas and Close in the first half hour. Close's character doesn't really hold up to scrutiny, but she does terrific work in pure genre territory.

    low for the first half hour, then grows suspenseful, and then just explodes into utter chaos by the final act. It's not my favorite thriller, but it fulfills its promise.
