Movie Review for 'Obsessed' Rated PG-13

Available now on DVD, 'Obsessed' was written by David Loughery and directed by Steve Shill. The movie stars Idris Elba, Ali Larter, Beyonce Knowles and Jerry O'Connell. The trailer for 'Obsessed' had me fired up and ready to see a fantastic movie, however, the trailer ended up being the best part. I struggled to sit through this flick and was disturbed over the $3.00 I had spent to rent it! We have all seen this movie before. It was called 'Fatal Attraction'. The difference being that there was none of that pesky sex stuff to make us understand how our villainess became so enthralled with our married, male lead!
The acting in 'Obsessed' was much like watching a fourth grade play (No offence forth graders), and very quickly made me come to the conclusion that not all singers can act, regardless of their efforts...sorry Ms. Knowles! Ali Larter, on the other hand, played a fantastic psycho but the movie's dullness and lack of luster threw a dark veil over her performance. If you are looking for a good DVD this weekend, Obsessed IS NOT IT ! Surprisingly, this movie grossed $68 million dollars at the box office. Good thing there is a no-refund policy on box office hits...or in this case, misses!
