In the strange madness of relationships,we find a thrilling ride ! Close and Douglas take the viewer on a fling of emotions. A married lawyer gets involved with a female attorney and they get \"hot and heavy\" for each other.The tables turn,when the female is obnoxious and won't stop harassment. Sciorra is amazing, as a wife who fights to save her family.Bravo to the cast ,for this love

Fatal Attraction rings the changes on your atavistic emotions. Walking out of the theater, you might have a sudden desire to club a woolly mammoth and hide your family in a dark cave -- away from people like Glenn Close. Full Review

One of the most effective thrillers in years, Attraction did an excellent job of mixing its suspense with trendy issues of sexual paranoia and monogamy. [27 Dec 1987, p.19] Full Review

Washington Post
This is a spectacularly well-made thriller. It is an odd thing, really -- the movie is sexy and at the same time a warning about the costs of sex. Full Review

The New York Times
Mr. Lyne takes a brilliantly manipulative approach to what might have been a humdrum subject and shapes a soap opera of exceptional power. Full Review
