A white-knuckled "don't-let-this-happen-to-you" thriller that vividly demonstrates what can happen to a guy when he lets other parts of his anatomy do his thinking for him.
Manhattan lawyer Dan Callagher (Mike Douglas) has it all: successful career, attractive wife, nice dog, an d a loving daughter. So why not have an extramarital fling with a woman he met at a party while the family is out of town? Sure. Just a one-night stand. No harm, no harm done.

But there's something very nasty about Dan's partner in crime, because blonde Alex Forrest (Glenn Close) may have all the right moves in the sack, but she also has an elevator that doesn't go all the way to the top. So when Dan wants to shake hands and part company, Alex will have none of it, and the table is set for a one-way ticket to Looney Land.

Let the stalking. . .the suspense. . .the thrills and chills. . .begin. The bathroom scene, in which Dan's frazzled wife Beth (Anne Archer) wipes the steam off the mirror, is worth the price of purchase of this dvd alone.

Director Englishman Adrian Lyne (9.5 weeks) delivers a gripping story.

This film had me right from the start, it's glitsy eighties look provides an excellent backdrop for a truly terrifying story. Glenn Close can only be described as brilliant, and Michael Douglas plays a perfectly likeable/dislikeable (I'm not sure!) co-star. At points during the film I was practically jumping up and down screaming "Get her!", but at others I was more "Aww, just leave her alone..." Anyway, it is definitley the best thriller I have ever seen, I can strongly recommend it.

Oh the 80's were a fantastic era filled with great music and films but some dodgy hair styles. Anyone who thinks the 80's were terrible need to bloody well think again. Yes things were kind of stuck in the 80's but that's what so great about it all. It had a time and place and still stands out. We had fantastic music, the two best albums ever with Michael Jacksons Thriller and Bad. Just think of all the memorable films like Rambo, Commando, Lethal Weapon, Back To The future, Wall Street, Robocop and Die Hard. Need I go on because I could list endless great films. Not only that we two of the hottest woman evet, Amy from The A Team and Jodie from The Fall Guy. Ill have a good hard think about those two later!

To be honest there is no such thing as a bad era, because all of them have some truly great stuff to offer. The worst I would suggest is the 2000's because that is when CGI went mad and was used instead of good story telling. Look, the best to some up the decades is this. The 70's had great stringy and matted pubic hair. The 80's pube's were neater with the occasional landing strip. The 90's , well towards the end anyway, saw a decline in pubic hair altogether and the 00's was the Hollywood look. But the 80's were my favourite...

That brings me into one of the most ground breaking films ever made which is still relevant today. Perhaps even more so these days because it still shocks and is as effective today as it was in 1987. Fatal Attraction is one hell of a film that has stuck in the minds of the audience ever since it was first released. Every time I watch it I still come away amazed with how effective it remains. Sure it had massive shoulder pads and dodgy permed hair but man what a film to behold.

I first saw this film when it had it`s original premiere on tv,back when we only had 4 channels.I must of been still in my teens & mainly watching for the well publicised sex scenes.It`s nice to get the dvd and watch it as a grown man.The film actually stands up much better than i expected,it`s not so often i give a film 5 stars but i would recommend this film to anyone(except of course young children).The dvd contains some good extras including directors commentary.

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Seemingly happily married man, Dan Gallagher, gives in to the seductive charm of Alex Forrest and partakes in a night of wild sexual passion with her. Trouble is, is that Alex is a tad unhinged and a woman scorned can be the ultimate nightmare.

I have just revisited this monster smash hit from the 80s (highest grossing film of 1987), and it still packs the same punch as it did back in the late 80s when it not only became a big hit, it also became a cultural phenomenon and one of the most talked about films of the decade. I'm saddened by the relatively average rating here because its significance and bravery should always be highlighted instead of pointless allegations about it being only of its time. Just how many imitations did Fatal Attraction spawn I wonder? Fatal Attraction was a monster hit because it gave the audience something different, a monster flip flop of having the man stalked by an uncontrollable female loony. Much credit goes to screenwriter James Dearden for laying it on like a slowly tightening spring waiting to explode, for as the plot unfolds and Alex Forrest's Madame Butterfly fuelled revenge gathers apace, the audience starts to realise it has been doubly conflicted on the emotional character attachment front.

Dan has done the dirty on his beautiful wife and child, the bastard deserves what is coming to him for sure? Alex is right in that he's had his fun and now she can basically go and whistle at the moon, but the cheeky saver here from the makers is that Alex did the chasing knowing that Dan was happily married, she led the way fully armed with the facts. This makes for a wonderfully constructed thriller that ups the suspense quota to positively seal the deal with a heart stopping finale.
