Fatal Attraction Reviews

June 12, 2013
Under the direction of Adrian Lyne, most of the picture's situations seem like randomly chosen place holders, flat events that just fill time until the final bizarre confrontation.

[The film brings] horror home to a place where the grownup moviegoer actually lives.

Because the good things in the movie -- including the performances -- are so very good, it's a shame that the film's potential for greatness was so blatantly compromised.
