Movie Info

A paranoid housewife finds that her worst fears are merely dwarfed be the terrifying reality of her dangerous obsession in director Ann Turner's psychologically bent study in fear starring Susan Sarandon, Sam Neill, and Emily Blunt. Convinced that her husband's beautiful co-worker Mara (Blunt) is seeking to rob her of her family and steal her identity, Sophie Hartley (Sarandon) finds nothing but incredulous stares when she voices her concern to her disbelieving family and friends. As Sophie struggles to maintain her slipping sanity and the grip of paranoia continues to tighten its constricting grip, her acute obsession finds Sophie becoming her own worst nightmare.

  • Writer-director Ann Turner sets the plotwheels clanking along in traditional manner without a hint of subtlety.

  • The scenes of physical suspense are crudely handled, and the story essentially stalls for 90 minutes in its first act.

  • Pic flirts with Hitchcockian touches, but inappropriate application of techniques fails narrative's specific needs.

  • The problem is the story and direction. Basically, the way the story is told. It plays upon stereotypes and has a twist you can see coming from a mile away. And oh, that ending.

  • The good bits work with such smoothness that each lapse in logic and continuity hits you with a dizzying thud. And there are many.

  • For all intents and purposes, "Irresistible" is a bad film in good film's clothing - looks appealing on the outside but on the inside its as hollow as an Easter egg.

    The cast is reminiscent of an A-list thriller. The actual plot is reminiscent of a Lifetime original movie with a hint of Fatal Attraction.

    Susan Sarandon is an artist and book illustrator married to Craig (Sam Neill), a successful architect, and has two beautiful young daughters. Plagued by artist's block, Sophie is also struggling to cope with the grief and sorrow of losing her mother who recently passed away. Already emotionally unsettled, Sophie notices things going missing and other strange things happening in her home. Eventually, she begins to suspect that Mara (Emily Blunt), the beautiful and seductive new comer at Craig's office, is breaking into her home and playing some sort of sinister game with Sophie's family. Her sanity is quickly being put into question as nobody believes on her and she begins to stalk Mara, in the hopes of proving that she is right. The ending's "big twist" (after a previous twist), was slightly confusing, too brief and un-dramatic, and by then, who in the hell cares anyway?

    Sam Neil, Emily Blunt and Susan Sarandon: A brilliant cast but not such a brilliant movie! i mean yes you were getting twists and surprises right till the end but not great, its a bit dragged out and long winded that it just gets a bit boring, i like the concept of the story its pretty good but not a suspense thrilller that i liked could have been done better! Sam Neil looked Hot!!
