Fatal Attraction (Adrian Lyne, 1987)

08/08/2010

Just a few flaws about plot:  boiling rabbit, abduction of child from school (mind you), you got the attack in Close’s apartment between Douglas and Close.  Where are the police in all this?  They don’t materialize until the end.  Dramatic tension was building but this giant gaffe sinks the story just a little.  Its a barnburner and one I still can’t turn off if its on (probably seen it 20 times, gulp).  Michael Douglas at his high point and adulterous men at their low point.
