Movie Info

Alec Baldwin stars in this thriller as Dr. Jed Hill, a brilliant young trauma specialist who begins to believe he can do no wrong after he saves the life of a patient given up for dead by another doctor. Jed runs into an old classmate, Andy Safian (Bill Pullman), who is now a college dean. Andy invites Jed to stay with him in the attic bedroom of a house he is renovating with his wife Tracy (Nicole Kidman). Tracy takes a dislike to Jed, whom she thinks is a psychotic egomaniac. In the mean time, Andy has to deal with a serial killer on the loose among the campus dorms. While Andy is helping belligerent law enforcement officials with the murder investigation and Jed is drinking straight shots at the local saloon, Tracy begins to have abdominal pains and is rushed to the emergency room. Jed comes directly from the bar and slices her open, removing more from her body cavity than he should. The allegations fly fast and furious between Tracy, Andy, and Jed.

...a superior thriller that does, more than 20 years later, remain one of the best examples of the genre.

Reel Film Reviews

The fun of Malice comes from Sorkin, Frank, and Harold Becker understanding the been-there/done-that formulas of thrillers past and tinkering with them as much as possible.

As easy to take as a college course in basket-weaving.

Awesome mystery. From one plot to another but it all flows. Great Anne Bancroft cameo!

Effective thriller with good performances, albeit a bit far-fetched.
