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.

Ultimately this is a pretty lame movie, without the sardonic wit that parts of the script had seemed initially to promise -- but workmanlike enough.

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.

A decent (if completely forgettable) thriller...

Haven't we all seen this already? Too many times?

I've seen this before, it's called "Fatal Attraction"...

A tapestry of loose ends.

Bradford spends the entire film with an Andrew Shue-ish sullen, slack-jawed expression, but even that's more than what the bland Appleby brings to her doormat role.

A mean-spirited, incompetent disaster.

Was anybody clamoring for yet another teen movie? Or, even worse, a teen version of Fatal Attraction?

Seguindo o tom juvenil (no sentido pejorativo da palavra) do roteiro, podemos descrever este filme com uma regra de trs simples: Fixao est para Atrao Fatal assim como Erika Christensen est para Glenn Close.

One more trailer, plus one more featurette, equals one more DVD to collect dust.

No points for originality, but young audiences will lap up the mix of nubile teens and cheap shocks, while the solid performances provide something for less hormone-ravaged viewers.

With much needless thrashing about, Swimfan drowns in its own foolishness.

...fifty minutes of tedious adolescent melodramatics followed by thirty-five minutes of inflated nonsense.
February 8, 2003
Christensen is clearly the best thing about this movie; her transition from a pretty, personable high school girl to a psychotic killer is subtle and disturbing. But its charms mainly end there.
