  • The movie that remains is lovely to look at, but spiritless, a listless coquette. But then, 9 1/2 Weeks isn't about talk. It isn't about sadomasochism. It isn't even about sex. It's about looking good. [20 Feb 1986, p.1] show more

  • A project of this sort depends crucially on the chemistry between its actors, and Kim Basinger and Mickey Rourke develop an erotic tension in this movie that is convincing, complicated and sensual. show more

  • This rather simple story, played with stunning conviction by Rourke and Basinger, achieves its apex through director Adrian Lyne's steamy direction. Yet, it's not nasty enough. [14 Mar 1986, p.11] show more

    I found this movie almost scary in it\'s ability to catch you up in the slow build, without giving anything away, from \"normal\" to \"not.\" Really awesome! And really awesome to watch with someone you\'re hot for!! Quite sexy!
