Product Description

Academy Award(R)-winner Kevin Kline (1988 Best Supporting Actor -- A FISH CALLED WANDA) and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio (A PERFECT STORM) heat up the screen in CONSENTING ADULTS, the spine-tingling sexy thriller that seduced audiences and critics alike. When two couples living next door to each other grow too close, one of the husbands risks everything for a passion he can't resist -- his neighbor's wife. His temptation traps the foursome in a shocking web of betrayal and murder. And now accused of a crime he didn't commit, he must race against time to save his family from a shocking fate. Directed by master of suspense Alan J. Pakula (PRESUMED INNOCENT), this erotic thriller twists and turns as tension builds to a sensational heart-stopping climax.

Format: DVD
Despite its suggestive title, this is actually a mystery/thriller and a very good one. Richard and Priscilla are a happily-married couple who have new neighbors, Eddy and Kay. Eddy is a bit unscrupulous and a little strange, yet he works very hard to establish a tight friendship with Richard. Richard is shocked when Eddy suggests a wife-swap, but later thinks it might be fun.

The first half is a rather typical suburban-marriage story, but before you know it, BAM! It turns into a scary murder story with twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat. Kevin Kline gives a strong performance as mild-mannered Richard who thinks the grass is greener next door, but Kevin Spacey steals the show (as usual). He plays overly-friendly Eddy who gradually turns into the raving psychopath that Spacey plays so well.

There are many plot holes that make the story more than a little far-fetched, but still I enjoyed it and recommend it for those who like thrillers.

Richard and Priscilla Parker's lives take a turn for the better when Eddy and Kay move into the house next door.

Eddy's a risk taker and shows his new neighbours how to enjoy life at the expense of a rule or convention or two.

What Richard doesn't realise is that Eddy's little games are just a prelude to something that's intended to destroy his neighbours' lives...

The film tries really too hard to be a Hitchcockian thriller, and it does really well up until a point, but then like most movies like this released in the early Nineties, it goes all fatal Attraction and has the normal friend go all nuts at the end.

If they had left out the murders, which ruined the film and any plausibility it had, and concentrated more on the fraud part of the film, this could have been an entire different beast.

But no, people in the nineties were really asking for more eroticism out of their thrillers, or so Basic Instinct told us, so it goes for the wife swapping route, which ruins it.

Kline is great as always, and it's always funny to see Spacey in trash like this, before he met Keyser Soze.

So all in all, it had so much potential, but spoils it all by almost going to the audience 'Phwooar' get some of that Mrs...

I first saw this film several years ago. I thought of it when developing a story line.
The principle characters happen to be subjected to a barrage of persuasion to enter an arrangement not of their choice.
The climax is well worth waiting for.
I recommend this DVD.

Just ok. A bit far fetched story but not impossible. I could not understand how eddy's wife could claim ignorance of the whole scheme and how Priscilla could move in with Eddy. Sex scenes not explicit which made for good family watching

Interesting plot. Good twist but as usual the characters always seem to do stupid things to assist the villain leading to the inevitable and predictable 'climax'.

I got this a few years ago for a friend as it was on her wishlist. I got a big thankyou as she had been after this for sometime. A good purchase I think.
