Alex Forrest: Well, what am I supposed to do? You won’t answer my calls, you change your number. I mean, I’m not gonna be ignored, Dan!
Alex Forrest: You play fair with me, I’ll play fair with you.
Dan Gallagher: You’re so sad. You know that, Alex? Lonely and very sad.

The story, I thought, was terrific! The acting was great! Michael Doulgas gave an unforgettable performance and so did Glenn Close. Dan Gallagher (Douglas) & Alex Forest (Close), although the situation is their fault, make you feel bad for both of them at some point in the movie. You feel bad for Alex when he begins to ignore her after them sleeping together. But then again you feel bad for Dan just as much because of many things. When she gets pregneant and wont get an abortion, that makes you feel so bad for him. Same as when she showed up at his apartment and kidnapped his daughter Ellen from school, which ends up getting his wife Beth(Anne Archer)into a car accident. Even the little girl did a terrific job as Ellen Gallagher
The direction was great! Adrian Lyne did a great job. He seemed to pay attention to every detail in the story line & in the actors physical appearances. Lyne wanted everything to be perfect. And he made a terrific movie.
Overall the movie gets an A+ from me. I thought with the actors, visual and overall story line it just made a terrific movie. Two thumbs way up!
