Fascination (2005)

TOMATOMETER

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

Movie Info

A pair of stepsiblings are torn between desire and suspicion in this sexy thriller. Scott Doherty (Adam Garcia) is a young man in his early twenties who is still coming to terms with the unexpected death of his father (James Naughton) when he learns that his mother, Maureen (Jacqueline Bisset), is engaged to marry Oliver Vance (Stuart Wilson). Scott doesn't approve of the marriage, and he soon learns Oliver's daughter Kelly (Alice Evans), also in her early twenties, has similar misgivings, primarily because Oliver also just recently lost his spouse. As Scott and Kelly get to know one another, they begin to wonder if the recent deaths that made the marriage of Maureen and Oliver possible were entirely accidental, though their feelings become far more complicated when they enter into a passionate affair.

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

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.

So tedious is Fascination that the plot, the embittered characters and, yes, the sexuality are merely insipid.

Audience Reviews for Fascination

½

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