It at once wants to be a feminist tract against the exploitation of women and a vessel that showcases that exploitation.

In the lead roles, both Fawcett and Russo are quite good. However this play got lost in translation to the screen.

I ended up liking this more than I thought I would. It's political views are all over the map, but it ended slightly better than I expected it to. A good performance by Farrah Fawcett.

Great performances from all involved, but there's something missing from this that I can't quite put my finger on. I wouldn't mind seeing a 21st century remake.

I can barely remember this. I can't believe Farrah Fawcett is dead.

Though the dialogue is at times implausible and Diana Scarwid's performance is not all that credible, "Extremities" is an interesting, disturbing portrayal of human violence that poses a question of where justification lies in revenge. The film adaptation, I think, is better than the stage play that inspired it. William Mastrosimone's script is most fitting as a movie, not as a theatrical piece. Where the movie works is in Farrah Fawcett's surprising performance. She is quite good, playing a victim with a quiet fear, and when she fights back and her would-be rapist becomes the victim, she lifts the movie up and adds a great intensity to the character of Marjorie. It is because of her that "Extremities" is better than it should be.

Rape-and-revenge, 80s TV movie style. Worth a watch if you like that sort of thing.

It was alright. Nothing great and surely not one of my favorite Farrah Fawcett movies.

Farrah once again gives a riveting performance.
½ July 9, 2011
I remember that I saw this when it first came out. I re-watched it again and her acting definitely reminds me of the character she played in, "Burning Bed." Her performance was believable.

Because the topic matter sickens me, the ending left me feeling unsatisfied.

Farrah Gets Even in a Big, Over the Top Way.Her acting is so good in this, it's painful to watch.

A brilliantly unique thriller based on the great play, it's very crazy and suspenseful, I loved it and I highly recommend it.

Based on a play, this is a compelling story with two distinct halves to it. The acting is not all that great, although Farrah Fawcett holds her own, but the dialogue is sharp and the story believable. I'd be interested in seeing a stage adaptation of it to see if a change in acting would push this from merely "pretty good" to "very good."

A decent thriller that is ruined by its anticlimactic ending.
