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.

Not really a thriller so much as a movie for teens to laugh, groan and hiss at.

The story may not be new, but Australian director John Polson, making his American feature debut, jazzes it up adroitly.
September 11, 2002
Departs from being a psychological thriller and becomes a sort of bloodless slasher film.
September 11, 2002
Proof that a thriller can be sleekly shot, expertly cast, paced with crisp professionalism... and still be a letdown if its twists and turns hold no more surprise than yesterday's weather report.
September 10, 2002
Nothing plot-wise is worth e-mailing home about.
September 9, 2002
A chiller resolutely without chills.
September 9, 2002
There are plot holes big enough for Shamu the killer whale to swim through.

It would be great to see this turd squashed under a truck, preferably a semi.
September 6, 2002
The first Fatal Attraction was vile enough. Do we really need the Tiger Beat version?
September 6, 2002
It's a cheap thriller without the cheap thrills.
September 6, 2002
[Swimfan] falls victim to sloppy plotting, an insultingly unbelievable final act and a villainess who is too crazy to be interesting.
September 5, 2002
Swimfan, like Fatal Attraction, eventually goes overboard with a loony melodramatic denouement in which a high school swimming pool substitutes for a bathtub.
September 5, 2002
The project's filmmakers forgot to include anything even halfway scary as they poorly rejigger Fatal Attraction into a high school setting.
