Critic Reviews for Swimfan
Director John Polson mutes the conservative sexual politics of the original film, focusing on the lightweight, efficient suspense story.
It would be so easy for an actress to overplay this role, to morph into high camp, but Christensen stays icy cool.
Only the very easily pleased will be able to see past its limitations.
It's like going to a house party and watching the host defend himself against a frothing ex-girlfriend. You don't want to call the cops. You want to call Domino's.
Not really a thriller so much as a movie for teens to laugh, groan and hiss at.
Audience Reviews for Swimfan
An ok well shot, thriller aimed at the MTV generation. Yes this has been done a few times, Fatal Attraction set the bar, and the twists are quite predictable. However if you like thrillers of any sort you'll probably like to see this once.
Swimfan has gotten a lot of flack due to it's similarities with Fatal Attraction. In fact it's been called a teen version of Fatal Attraction. I haven't seen Fatal Attraction so I couldn't compare, but this an average thriller with decent enough acting. I wouldn't say great, but certainly isn't awful. If you know the story of Fatal Attraction, then Swimfan follows the same path. Nothing original. I can't say that Simfan is a great film, because it isn't. But the film entertained me and it did have something going for it. But this is a pure, mindless thriller that follows the fatal attraction formula. The cast do what they can with a derivative script, and it feels at times lazy, and it shows. Swimfan is a guilty pleasure, and I admit I liked it somewhat cause it was entertaining, but it was fairly borderline average most of the time. Swimfan is the type of film that should be seen when you're bored and you're looking for something mindless, then Swimfan is the film to watch. But be warned, you won't find anything great in this film, maybe it'll entertain you, and and the same time you'll feel that theres something missing. I find the film to be borderline good and I;'d give a 5 out of 10. This may not be the best film, but I've seen my fair share of trash, and this is far from the worst film ever made. Swimfan is what I'd a guilty pleasure film, and it most certainly should be seen that way.
A very underrated edge of your seat thrilling romance of a film. I can't say I love it, but it is very good. Jesse Bradford has not had the chance of being in many good films, and yet, this is one of his best.
