Laughably overheated and featuring loads of cheesy dialogue, Fascination is the virtual definition of so-band-it's-good.

At its delirious worst, it's as pungent a Parisian cheese shop, offering a cornucopia of laughable scenes.

We can't stay interested, much less fascinated.

The only magnetism generated by ersatz black-widow Fascination is that perilous urge to slow down and peek at the roadside wreck.

The presence of Jacqueline Bisset is the only reason the little man hasn't left the chair.

Klaus Menzel's laughable screenplay is not enhanced by direction not much more accomplished than that of a typical Cinemax late-night adult series.

Contrived and pointless.

...Fascination generally vacillates between being utterly ridiculous and flat-out boring.

Fascination would be a good title for a movie that was in any way interesting.

A sweaty bit of smut disguised as high-class suspense.

Lust. Betrayal. Revenge. Greed. Murder. Somehow, all of these things become dull in the preposterous and yet decidedly un-fascinating "Fascination."

Laughably cheap and cheesy...

The most fascinating thing about this movie is why they thought anyone would want to see it.

Here is an erotic thriller that instead of sizzling, fizzles.

It's a film that fully lives up to its title, because you'll leave the theater fascinated that Fascination ever made it to the big screen.

Blood! Hooters! Really improbable, out-of-left-field plot developments! You could do a lot worse.

The balance of the film is so nonsensical that not even sex can sell it.

Audience Reviews for Fascination

This average thriller is cheaper and nastier than the simplest of soap operas.
