Summary: "Fatal attraction" has become a household term for love turned to murderous obsession, thanks to the success of Adrian Lyne's 1987 movie. Dan (Michael Douglas) is a family man whose one-night affair with Alex (Glenn Close) turns into a nightmare when she insists on continuing the relationship, claiming to be carrying his baby. Alex systematically terrorizes Dan, even temporarily kidnapping his daughter, in her attempts to win back his affection. Douglas' besieged family man guiltily tries to preserve his marriage and family from the consequences of his own indiscretion. Close's performance as the love-struck psycho-siren remains her signature role: She conveys the buried feminist message of the film in her challenge to Dan to take responsibility for his sexual behavior. Though many critics acknowlegded the film's striking similarities to Clint Eastwood's 1971 film Play Misty for Me, Fatal Attraction spawned numerous other movies about middle-class families besieged by a lone psychotic intent on infiltrating and destroying the fabric of the family unit, including The Stepfather (1987), Pacific Heights (1990), The Hand That Rocks the Cradle (1992), and Fear (1996). ~ Laura Abraham, Rovi

Lucia Bozzola

One of Michael Douglas' first besieged-white-male movies and a zeitgeisty late-'80s blockbuster about the need to preserve the family unit against sexual temptation, Fatal Attraction (1987) is also a slickly engaging thriller that allowed Glenn Close to get in touch with her inner onscreen vixen. Starting off with a smooth hint of realism and excellent acting, Fatal Attraction seems on the verge of raising interesting questions about men who cheat on their wives -- especially since Anne Archer is an appealing mate -- and the impact of changing sex roles. The trashy final act (complete with a shock death scene straight out of slasher movies), however, devolves into a repulsive yet telling portrait of career woman hysteria and Hollywood pandering that almost fatally undermines the rest of the film. Still, Close is a sexy, dangerous villainess (before she collapses into her bunny-boiling psycho mode), Douglas a believably conflicted husband, and Archer a fine, lovely wife. Director Adrian Lyne shows an understanding of how to turn the visual screws. With the ending famously changed after test audiences booed the more downbeat original conclusion, Fatal Attraction became a huge hit and earned six Oscar nominations, including Best Picture. ~ Lucia Bozzola, Rovi
