Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Fatal Attraction was and still is a corking good thriller: Cleverly written, splendidly acted, and tautly directed, it is guaranteed to raise audience hackles. But following its 1987 release, Adrian Lyne’s suspenseful melodrama became something else: a bona fide cultural phenomenon, one of those rare motion pictures that stimulated debate on important issues such as spousal fidelity and moral relativism. Male viewers tended to sympathize with Michael Douglas’s character, a successful and happily married New York lawyer who succumbed to the seductive blandishments of aggressive career woman Glenn Close while his lovely wife, Anne Archer, was out of town. Female viewers felt sympathy for Close, who became psychotic and vengeful after the guilt-stricken Douglas terminated the brief but tempestuous affair. Lyne Indecent Proposal brilliantly manipulated audiences, but the film’s effectiveness derived from the performances of its three principal players, who made their characters totally believable in every particular. Much imitated in the years subsequent to its theatrical playoff, Fatal Attraction still retains the power to shock, to provoke, and to fascinate. Lyne discusses the movie’s special appeal in his thoughtful commentary for the DVD Collectors Edition, which also includes filmed interviews with Douglas, Close, Archer, producers Stanley Jaffe and Sherry Lansing, and writers Nicolas Meyer and James Dearden. Additionally, the DVD presents a featurette on the film’s cultural impact, a behind-the-scenes look at the production, some never-before-seen rehearsal footage, and the infamous, much-discussed alternate ending.
All Movie Guide - 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.
Washington Post
Fatal Attraction has an inescapable pull to it; it's suffocatingly exciting. Lyne's direction has a seductive sharpness and precision...there are moments -- like the spectacular bathroom sequence at the end of the film -- when Lyne makes your throat tighten the way Hitchcock did. Hal Hinson

    Love That Black Leather Raincoat!!!!!

    Glenn Close earned an Oscar nomination and secured herself a place in screen history with her portrayal of the desperately lonely career woman Alex Forrest in 'Fatal Attraction.' It is interesting that the film in which she looked the best is one where she played a character who is serioiusly disturbed; in a different story her wardrobe and look might have a sparked a fashion trend, much as Diane Keaton did with 'Annie Hall.' Whatever its flaws, and there are many, 'Fatal Attraction' remains an extremely polemic film because there are any number of ways to look at it to provoke discussion among various social groups. Straight men can view it as an indictment against what they consider their entitled right to play around; straight women can see it as a reason not to play around; gay male extremists can use it to justify their heterophobia; feminisits can view it as an attack on being single and careerism. Any way you approach it it works, which is how it is so ingenious. Cinematically it is visually stunning, from the Glenn Close look, to the way scenes are light and angled, so that no matter how you pick it apart, 'Fatal Attraction,' to paraphrase one of its more famous lines, cannot be ignored. I am of the camp that preferred the original ending which can be seen on the DVD, however what has always bothered me about the film is that no matter which version one prefers the whole thing is designed to get Michael Douglas' character off the hook, and by doing disregarding the tragedy of an otherwise interesting and intelligent individual who is seriously mentally ill. Nearly twenty years later this film still resonates because the issues which it aroused are still at large in our society

    A Modern Classic

    Fatal Attraction was not an original concept when it was released in 1987, but it refueled a new genre of movies centering on unstable, psychotic, and unpredictable female characters. Films such as Basic Instinct, The Hand That Rocks the Cradle, and Single, White Female, to name a few, followed suit. The story revolves around a married man (Michael Douglas) who decides to have a one-night stand with a sexy editor (Glenn Close), only to find out she has other intentions about their ''relationship''. What separates this film from its imitators is the stylish directing by Adrian Lynne and the fantastic performances. Glenn Close earned her fourth Oscar nomination for her searing portrayal of a woman bent on madness (she should have won that year but lost out to Cher for Moonstruck). Anne Archer also received a nod for supporting actress. Douglas was not nominated, but won an Oscar the same year for Wall Street ( which explains his non-nomination). The chemistry between all the players is excellent, which is crucial to any movie, and the casting is perfect. So many films today have ''young'' performers which can lessen the quality of the work; Fatal Attraction is a mature movie with mature performances. The film gets better with each viewing, so if it seems a bit slow in parts at first, the next few times it is watched, it will become more engaging. I say this because the middle section of the film can seem to drag a bit, but it actually has its points. Overall, this six-time Academy Award nominated film is a superb, big-budgeted Hollywood production that deserves your attention!

    Suspense at its best!

    Fatal Attraction is about a lawyer (Michael Douglas) with a wife (Anne Archer) and daughter, who sleeps with his client (Glenn Close), who's lust turnes to hate. This movie features great performances by Close, Douglas and Archer. Director Adrian Lyne has surely made his signature movie! Fatal Attraction was nominated for a few Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Actress-Glenn Close, Best Supporting Actress-Anne Archer, and Best Director. IT SHOULD'VE WON THEM ALL!
