Manhattan lawyer Dan Gallagher (Douglas) has it all: successful career, attractive wife, loving daughter. So why not have an extramarital fling with a woman he met at a party while the family is out of town? Sure. Just a one-night stand. No harm, no foul. But there's something very "foul" about Dan's partner in crime, because blonde Alex Forrest (Glenn Close) may have all the right moves in the sack, but she also has an elevator that doesn't go all the way to the top. So when Dan wants to shake hands and part company, Alex will have none of it, and the table is set for a one-way ticket to Looney Land.
Let the stalking. . .the suspense. . .the thrills and chills. . .begin. The bathroom scene, in which Dan's frazzled wife Beth (Anne Archer) wipes the steam off the mirror, is worth the price of purchase of this video alone.
Director Adrian Lyne (as usual) delivers a gripping, antacid-popping story. The only positive in FATAL ATTRACTION was the fact all this bad stuff happened to an attorney. Like, how sad. I'd like to write more, but I hear the wife calling--something about all the hair in the sink. Don't want to get her riled.
Well here you get the whole thing complete with F-words and nipples and no commercials, plus the fabled original ending. This, by the way, is impossibly anticlimactic in comparison with the ending they ended up with, and it's easy to see why test audiences found it unsatisfying in the first place. The "Madame Butterfly" scene with Glenn Close is dramatic and gruesome, but in a sombre, distant, emotionally detached way - and the way that Michael Douglas and family hear about what happened, you feel like you must've dozed off and missed something. (I'm trying to be cryptic so as not to give it away totally.) The ending we all knew and loved is way more Hollywood balls-out teeth-bared eyes-popping insane, so if you were expecting another scenario with that kind of energy, forget it. But Close apparently fought hard for the original ending, probably because it's such an iconographic, immortalizing shot, Whistler-picturesque yet Goya-gory.
So, the film itself. It's funny how movies from 15 or 20 years ago seem sort of transparent and obvious cuz you've seen the same stuff rehashed the same way so many times. We get the set-up of Douglas as an enviable example of "everyman" with his perfect American-dream homelife, his little girl with the haircut like a boy, his perpetually bleary-eyed, stuffy-nosed soccer mom of a wife (Anne Archer in typical form).Read more ›
