Silly parody of both Fatal Attraction & Basic Instinct which throws in a few references to other classic film noir and thriller movies for good measure.
There's maybe one or two funny moments in the whole film, which isn't a particularly good ratio and the performances are nothing better than average.
Personally, I think this should be skipped and the films which are referenced within should be watched instead. It's a much more productive use of time.
4/10
