Obsessed

All's fair when love is war.


Obsessed
A milder updated version of Fatal Attraction, for the YouTube/MySpace/FaceBook generation. Beyoncé plays the stay-at-home-wife who suspects her husband of having an affair with the super sexy new temp at work. Well, the temp thinks they have something going on, even when they don't. Since hell has no fury like a woman scorned, the temp goes into stalker mode as she fights for the man. Pretty wife does not take kindly to that and a major catfight is inevitable...

110 minutes.
Mature Accompaniment under 13 (Language, Violence).

Peter Feldman quote iconThere is nothing remotely creatively crazy to be found in Obsessed.

Peter Travers quote iconI'd call this stenchcloud Fatal Attraction meets The Temp, but that would insult those movies.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconEssentially just an updated version of Fatal Attraction without the interesting characters, true suspense and/or interesting subtext (even with the mixed racial element that's present), the film takes forever to play out.

Tomatometer quote iconThe inevitable Fatal Attraction comparisons aside, Obsessed is a generic, toothless thriller both instantly predictable and instantly forgettable.
