Movie Review by BillyBob
March 1st, 2014

Yikes! Bunny's Sure In Some Hot Water Now!

My-oh-my, aren't little bunny-rabbits cute? And, is this psycho-stalker movie really supposed to be a stern warning to all married men to not think with their dinks?

And, speaking about psycho-stalkers (Hollywood-style), I'd certainly say that Glenn Close, as Alex Forest (aka. The Madame Butterfly of the wrist-slasher set) made for one of the most irritatingly deranged and unintentionally hilarious loony-tunes to ever appear in a big-budget, Tinseltown production that I've ever seen.

I honestly can't imagine how the hell Close could've ever taken her irksome, frizzy-haired character so dead-serious. And the solemn, straight-faced way she delivered her ludicrous lines was just too funny for words.

And, speaking about slashing one's wrists - I honestly ask you - When it comes to those people who have ever tried this sort of thing and actually succeeded in gashing open, not one, but both their wrists - How many of them do you seriously believe could possibly still remain standing on their own two feet while the blood gushes out of them and (get this!) have the stamina & motivation to go around showing others what they have done? Eh? How many!?.... Like, how about none!

And, when it finally came down to those noteworthy scenes in Fatal Attraction that totally killed me - I rate the final showdown that took place between dearest Dan & loveliest Alex to be pure slapstick comedy at one of its finest moments.

And when darling Dan's battered, bruised & betrayed wife, Beth, got into the act and took perfect aim with the gun and sent that bullet sailing (bull's-eye) dead-center into Alex's heart, well, that was truly a stroke of pure comic genius. Yes. That it was. (Surely there was another bullet in that gun meant for that dick-head, Dan)

All-in-all - I guess I got what I expected from Fatal Attraction. There were no surprises here. From its first 5 minutes I knew exactly where this one's story was going.

And, with that in mind, do you suppose that the Gallaghers really did live happily ever after (?)... End of story?

Well, I, for one, am so very-very thankful that this "you-made-your-bed-now-lie-in-it" movie (from a NYC hell) wasn't followed by a frickin' sequel.

Enough said.
