#97 Fatal Attraction (1987)
This movie was responsible for more men staying faithful to their wives than any other movie, song or sermon ever could have. Oh sure she seems naughty and fun at first but then things get bad very, very fast. Holy crap I forgot how freaky this movie was. Glenn Close had never really been thought of as "sexy" before this role ( or since, really) but no one could have been so convincingly bat shite crazy as she was.
Another thing to watch for here is the performance of Ellen Hamilton Latzen as Michael Douglas's daughter. All she wanted was a bunny to call her own... we all know how that went.
Favorite Quote: I'm not gonna be ignored, Dan.
Favorite Scene: The ending will have you rooting for the cheater.
Trivia: Glenn Close still has the knife she used in the movie hanging in her kitchen. Do not request hasenpfeffer for dinner.
Awards: Nominated for 6 Oscars
Would Jessica Like This Movie? Jessica no likey scary movies. No no no.
Next Movie: Mona Lisa
One Final Thought... Ann Archer was WAY hotter than Glenn Close.
