It's hilarious how worked up people got when this movie came out. The PC crowd decried the fact that a lesbian was the killer and, therefore, must have been the villan. The right wing crowd then immediately accused the PC crowd of being too hysterical about the alleged prejudice against homosexuals. Basic Instinct, they contended, was bad because it was a dirty movie. The producers, of course, loved all this publicity because EVERYONE went running to see the move and, in the words of Liberace, cried all the way to the bank. Telling audiences to not see a film because of homosexual activity and graphic sex scenes is like trying to scare ants away from a picnic by pouring sugar on the ground.
First of all, Sharon Stone's Catherine Trammell who is the killer lesbian (actually bisexual) in question, IS THE MOST SYMPATHETIC character in the whole film! EVERYONE is a slimebag! From Michael Douglas' hot tempered, tourist killing, chain smoking, cocaine snorting, oversexed police detective to Jeanne Tripplehorn's neurotic, kinky police psychiastrist who is more messed up than any of her patients to the rest of the morally compromised sleazes who pass for cops who laugh at murder victims and have the compassion and sensitivity of storm troopers, EVERY single character in this movie is a cesspool of a person! The way I see it, Sharon Stone is the most sympathetic person in the entire film -- at least she makes no bones about being sleazy. If you take the position that lesbians should be offended by their negative portrayal in Basic Instinct, then you could say the same for psychiatrists, cops (especially members of the SFPD), mystery writers, drug addicts, San Franciscans, smokers, country/western fans, chilli eaters, Mustang drivers and basically all human beings in general.

1.0 out of 5 stars Basic in-STINK March 30 2004
Format:DVD
Imagine someone telling a dead baby joke as unappealing as the idea is. But also imagine this someone trying to spice up the joke by adding 5 syllable words, Shakespearean quotes, and French expressions like "coup de grace" or "piece de resistance". Now I ask you, is this erudite relating of a dead baby joke still a dead baby joke. Yes, it is. Using this frame of mind, let us apply it to any of those Cinemax Friday After Dark movies. You know, those movies with the low budgets and a whole slew of people with great bodies who can't act their out a wet paper bag. Let us now take one of these FAD films, budget it with tens of millions of dollars, and cast it with the famous Michael Douglas and the up-and-coming Sharon Stone. Did we make a better FAD film? No, but we sure did purdy it up like we did the dead baby joke.
Basic Instinct is a measley effort to make something that has no inherent class classy. It's like that old saying about how you can't polish a ... well you know. Douglas is here playing a "cop on the edge", a role he did way three years earlier in the underrated Black Rain (I love the Ray Charles karaoke scene myself, but back to the point). And you have Sharon Stone as a [appealing] writer whose books mirror the murders that are being committed. As you can already see, it won't be long before these two hook up and make the bedsprings sing in 4/4 time.
So let me ask you one more question, friends. What is Basic Instinct's claim of fame? Is it the Oscar-calibre performances of its stars? Is it the crisp sharp direction that echoes Kurosawa and Fellini? Is it the inventive high concept plot that makes A Clockwork Orange seem like Friday the 13th part 68 - Jason vs. Lumbago? No, incorrect, and el wrongiente.

4.0 out of 5 stars Typical Michael Douglas film
Not a Michael Douglas fan but it was a bit of thriller and had some plot twists to it that were interesting. All in all a good movie.
