5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun,
This review is from: Fatal Instinct [DVD] (DVD)How Armand Assante manages to keep a straight face through this I have no idea. This movie parodies a whole range of movies without (mostly) descending to the typical Nation Lampoon's level. We originally recorded this off TV on VHS but the tape wore out after many replayings so when I saw it going cheap in an Amazon sale I just had to get it. A great laugh.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still good,
This review is from: Fatal Instinct [DVD] (DVD)My wife and I viewed this movie shortly after its release and found it hilarious - it not quite as rib-splitting as previously but still extremely amusing. A knowledge of the films parodied add to the enjoyment!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fatal Attraction/Basic Instinct and them some,
This review is from: Fatal Instinct [VHS] (VHS Tape)Finally a movie that has a good plot that follows through to the end. Many films starting with “Airplane” became over the top parodies. Yet most of them were vehicles for one-liners. This Movie actually has a structure and ability for running gags. We learn many legal concepts like triple indemnity, and visuals on how to buff buns. You barley have time to catch your breath. At other moments you know what is has to happen and at the last minute find that you are being set up from the beginning.
All the actors fit the characters they play. I have to say I have always been fascinated by Sean Young so it took a little time to see her as Lola Cain. Her relation ship to the other characters helps you understand motive and her risqué messing around taught me many new terms.
Laura Lincolnberry (Sherilyn Fenn) plays an exaggerated perfect secretary with a past, adding to the layer of complexity and her encounter with Lola Cain has to be seen.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fatal Instinct,
This review is from: Fatal Instinct [DVD] (DVD)Received in excellent order and an excellent film to brighten up the day, so thank you very much for the good service
5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious!!!,
This review is from: Fatal Instinct [DVD] (DVD)If you like spoofs like Airplane and Hotshots, you will love this as it is absolutely hilarious with great lines such as:
I have never seen this woman in my life. I never followed her home. I never had sex with her in her refrigerator. This is a sick fantasy, and I deny everything.
And WHEN will women like YOU learn you CAN'T tear apart a perfectly good marriage with your vicious lies?
You stay away from my wife, my life, my home, and my skunk!
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Parody,
This review is from: Fatal Instinct [DVD] (DVD)I remember the first time I saw this film on video in the mid 90s, I laughed so hard. It's still got a great ability to make you smile and laugh out loud. Should be in any comedy lovers library and Armande Assante should have done more stuff like this. His deadpan playing is what keeps the comedy alive.
4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Film,
This review is from: Fatal Instinct [DVD] (DVD)Chose this as I was directed to it by another purchase. Decided no... then wavered.... then decided, well at the price, what could possibly go wrong. In fact it was a good decision. Great parady on so many levels and the humour just kept coming. Have recommeded it to several friends, not lending it out in case it does not come back.
5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Airplane or Naked Gun, ... true!,
This review is from: Fatal Instinct [DVD] (DVD)One of the many of my most favourite films that I have purchased from Amazon, this time on 18-08-2009, so's a belated review, & my first one re 'the silver screen' (other favourites purchased from Amazon for example, Alien quadrilogy [1979,86,92&97], Angel-A , The Bourne trilogy [2002,04&07], Fried Green Tomatoes , How Green Was My Valley , Out Of Africa , Tea With Mussolini , ... I could go on, ...).
I enjoyed Fatal Instinct  more than the Airplane duo [1980&82] or Naked Gun trilogy [1998,91&94], ... sorry Leslie Nielsen, ... but I'm still a big fan of yours though Leslie ;-) However, this spoof with Armand Assante has spoilt my enjoyment of his other films, i.e., the Odyssey , ... I keep expecting him to break into humour! Oh, & by-the-way, Sean Young is 'drop-dead-gorgeous', ... seeing her having her 'buns' buffed, wow!, ... & Sherilyn Fenn's 'beaver' is awesome ;-)
P.S. What would 'I' have wanted to know before 'I' purchased the product? Well Mr. Amazon, as you asked this on this your Review web page, as with all films I want to know from you, more than anything else, the run time, ... so's I can assess whether or not the film has been cut! A close second, in moi's opinion, is knowing what aspect ratio the film is being presented in, ... so's I know whether or not I will see it as intended by the film makers. And, please note this info is just as important to moi when purchasing box sets, i.e., time & ration of all include films. Hope this helps you Amazon.
