Good thriller, but unfortunately old-fashioned message against working, single women.

Kind of meh. Surprised it's an Adrian Lyne film.

The most effective "keep it in your pants" film ever.
Squanders its potential and winds up a mere decent thriller.
The moral is: the office'll do crazy things to a lady. Best stay at home and have babies.
Passion can be dangerous, as Close's daunting portrayal amazingly depicts.

Scariest film I've ever seen. Glenn Close deserved an Oscar for that!
Fatal Attraction is a 1987 American thriller blended with horror, directed by Adrian Lyne and stars Michael Douglas, Glenn Close and Anne Archer. The film centers around a married man who has a weekend affair with a woman who refuses to allow it to end, resulting in emotional blackmail, stalking and an ensuing obsession on her part. The film was adapted by James Dearden and Nicholas Meyer from an earlier short film by Dearden for British television, Diversion (1980).
Fatal Attraction was a hit, becoming the second highest grossing film of 1987 in the United States and hugely popular internationally. Critics were enthusiastic about the film, and it received six Academy Award nominations, including that for Best Picture, Best Actress for Close and Best Supporting Actress for Archer.
