Yes, it's that old plotline again, only this time with a little more corporate intrigue but somewhat less conviction. The film is tense and enjoyable if disbelief can be temporarily suspended, though the transparent and predictable conclusion is a bit wearing. Acceptable viewing for a night in but the original is infinitely more enjoyable and better cast, pretty impossible to improve on, and difficult even to match.

I bought this because it had been on TV the previous week, and I missed most of it because of bad reception. I was curious because I'd enjoyed the Fonda/Jason Leigh original as a fair thriller. "SWF 2" falls well below the first cinema version, but not bad as a TV movie. Even now It looks a little dated, with the hair and fashions, and especially so in the obligatory underwear shot at the beginning.

The leads are okay, but Allison Lange doesn't emit the menace that Jennifer Jason Leigh did in the earlier film, she's a bit too likeable, in fact I was rootin for her throughout after the way she'd been treated.

Okay for the odd evenings viewing.

The film opens with fairly transparent plot and draws you mercilessly toward the inevitable conclusions. This film was so predictable from the start that for me it lost the "scary" factor of the original.
The ending is also very weak, seemed like they ran out of time and had to think of something.
This is an OK film if you just want to watch something whilst drinking and chatting with Friends, but very little use if you want to be scared or challenged.

Single White Female (The Original) was one of those classics that keeps you on the edge of your seat. You get involved, liking and disliking the characters as if they're real people. Unfortunately the rights to the sequel must have been lost in a poker game to the Anti-Movie Maker. The acting is generally appalling. The plot sketchy and forced. This has to be one of the worst movies I've ever seen

There seems to be a sub-industry emerging with 'Gossip Girl' type erotic thrillers. This is in the same vein as 'The Roommate' with young professionals replacing undergraduates. The characters look really slick and middle class, but they are not sympathetic. It just looks as though they've added a bit of gore to 'Beverley Hills 90210'. A thriller is not about what the characters do, it's who they are. We don't care about these characters and so what they do doesn't interest us. If you are going to use this 'Gossip Girl' type of casting then you need better scripts. If you're going to stick with these types of scripts then you need better actors for the audience to care about.

What a truly awful film - the first was full of suspense and drama ; yes a little cheesy but had you on the edge of your seat. This film is a total waste of space - BAD acting; BAD plot and i'm sure if anyone paid to see this film they would be demanding their money back.... total waste of life's breath!!!
