The date movie of the late 1980s, this had everyone arguing in the aisles. Does Michael Douglas deserve the unwanted attention he and his family are receiving at the hands of loony stalker Glenn Close? After a weekend extramarital affair with colleague Close, he returns home to wife Anne Archer, and Close becomes progressively angrier. You might even say she is boiling bunny mad. Directed by Adrian Lyne, this is not your average thriller, as it garnered six Academy Award nominations. The plot is too obvious, but the dialogue rings true and the intense performances hold the story together. Anne Archer deserves kudos for side-stepping cliché as the strong but frightened wife, and Close is a scream as she chews up the scenery. The film's original ending, which was reshot after poor preview screenings, has been added to the video release. --Rochelle O'Gorman
You're so sad. You know that, Alex? Lonely and very sad.
Don't you ever pity me, you smug bastard.
I'll pity you... I'll pity you. I'll pity you because you're sick.
Why? Because I won't allow you treat me like some slut you can just bang a couple of times and throw in the garbage?
