May 4, 2009
A silly, contrived film.
May 4, 2009
Elba and Larter are actually pretty good. Beyonce, through, strikes one note throughout.
April 27, 2009
As far as the crazy-stalker-chick genre goes, Obsessed isn't horrible. It's just intensely simple-minded.
April 27, 2009
Spends much time spinning its wheels and making auds practically beg for an explanation to all the madness and obsession.
April 27, 2009
If the producers had done their work properly on Obsessed, I would not now be wishing I could reclaim the two hours I wasted on this tepid, sexless, thrill-free melodrama.

April 27, 2009
Great-looking actors, glossy locations and a knock-down, drag-out girlfight still don't make Obsessed anything more than a predictable and tawdry Fatal Attraction-style guilty pleasure.

April 27, 2009
Obsessed takes far too long to get cooking, and it works so hard at not being exploitation that it loses sight of its reasons for existing in the first place.
April 27, 2009
One doesn't expect a movie of this type to be plausible, but this one stretches the plausibility factor past the snapping point to the unintentional-laughter point.

Obsessed, is short on dimension and subtlety, but it turns into a mess believable enough to keep us invested.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 27, 2009
Until Beyonce and Ali Larter duke it out at the climax, this is one dull film.
April 27, 2009
Obsessed is a safe, dull morality play. The most that can be said on its behalf is that, unlike Fatal Attraction, no bunnies were boiled in the picture.

Obsessed dutifully revises the 'blank from hell' genre which gave the world ridiculous, misogynist thrillers in the mid-1980s and early 1990s.

April 27, 2009
This biracial entry in the psycho-bitch stalker sweepstakes is inept and stupid but not without its base pleasures.
April 27, 2009
Obsessed makes an inadvertent argument for the monastery.

April 27, 2009
I'd call this stenchcloud 'Fatal Attraction meets The Temp,' but that would insult those movies.

April 27, 2009
More like Delayed Frustration than Fatal Attraction.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
April 27, 2009
Obsessed, a clanking, low-rent imitation of Fatal Attraction, lacks both the original film's imagination and moral ambiguity.

Whoever thought remaking Fatal Attraction as a PG-13 thriller was a good idea earns much of the blame for this laughably arch dud.

Shades of gray? Moral ambiguity? Who needs 'em. Obsessed traffics in catharsis--we aren't here to learn about the human condition, we just want to watch Beyonce tromp a tramp.

It's doubtful that Obsessed will stick in the popular imagination for more than two weeks, because the movie is borderline ludicrous, and it jams its characters into rigid slots.
