Critics Consensus

Unforgettable's talented cast makes this domestic thriller consistently watchable, even if its failure to fully embrace its premise's campy possibilities prevents it from living up to its title.

Movie Info

Tessa Connover (Katherine Heigl) is barely coping with the end of her marriage when her ex-husband, David (Geoff Stults), becomes happily engaged to Julia Banks (Rosario Dawson)--not only bringing Julia into the home they once shared but also into the life of their daughter, Lilly (Isabella Rice). Trying to settle into her new role as a wife and a stepmother, Julia believes she has finally met the man of her dreams, the man who can help her put her own troubled past behind her. But Tessa's jealousy soon takes a pathological turn until she will stop at nothing to turn Julia's dream into her ultimate nightmare.

  • Among the less-noted cardinal rules of cinema is that any movie that takes the title Unforgettable will prove to be anything but.

  • Unforgettable simply fails to deliver in terms of atmosphere and, moreover, the filmmakers fail to develop any sort of subtext from the material that might give weight to the story.

  • The shame is that Rosario Dawson gives an earnest, sympathetic, even moving performance as the victimized character. In contrast, none of her castmates seem authentic.

  • Heigl works overtime to humanize the resentful mom-her face is like an old-fashioned cash register with the prices popping up-but she's more fun to watch as the story grows ugly and violent, and she unleashes the demon within.

  • If this were a spoof, it would be a work of genius. Sadly, it's played straight, a glossy melodrama-cum-thriller of staggering cheesiness and unintentional hilarity.

  • Slick, glossy and radiating juicy villainy, it knows exactly what kind of movie it is and goes for it with giddy abandon.

    Enjoyable until the very climax, which was dumb.

    Rosario Dawson and Katherine Heigl star in the psychological thriller Unforgettable. When Julie Banks moves in with her fiancé she soon finds herself embattled with his ex-wife, who begins to manipulate and sabotage Julie's relationship with her daughter and ex-husband. Both Dawson and Heigl give strong performances; Heigl makes for a particularly good villain and plays psycho especially well. But the plot's formulaic and predictable, and has been done a hundred times before. Yet despite its lack of originality, Unforgettable is entertaining and delivers some thrills.

    Decent. Yes, straight to dvd and looks it, but the being perfect take was different. Katherine Heigl does a good job. Really wondered what horrors she faced as a child to wind up like that, because mommy dearest was pretty scary too. The ending was spot on.

    If you have ever even so much as heard of Lifetime existing, then you know every single beat of Unforgettable from beginning to end. What it does, it does quite well (and further proves the point I made about Katherine Heigl finding her place in sociopathy when I wrote my Home Sweet Hell review), but it doesn't have a single new thing on offer.
