Unforgettable (2017) – Review

29 April 2017 9:13 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

 

Time for another cinematic trek to the land of “second chance” romance, where those wounded lovers get another try at happiness in a picture-perfect little town complete with a cozy home (fireplace included, of course) and an adorable moppet. But this journey to a happy ending can’t be a smooth one. The fly in the ointment (or the more crass “t%#d in the punch bowl) is the more than a little unhinged ex. Then the trip goes from hearts and flowers to demented nannies and boiled bunny rabbits. Perhaps as a way to mark the 30th anniversary of Fatal Attraction, movie-goers are  now treated to a “female-centric” take on torture and turmoil mixed with thwarted desire and homicide in Unforgettable.

 

We first meet a battered and bruised Julia Banks (Rosario Dawson) as she is interrogated by a pair of somber stoic police detectives. Ms B is in big »

Here’s Why ‘Unforgettable’ Director Denise Di Novi Will Be the Woman Who Gets Another Shot

24 April 2017 9:47 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

This weekend, veteran producer Denise Di Novi saw her directorial debut, Warner Bros.’ “Unforgettable,” make an underwhelming box-office debut with an estimated $4.8 million for the weekend. For most women, that would be the kiss of death: Very few women get the chance to direct studio films, and underperformance means there won’t be an encore. That won’t be the case for Di Novi.

Di Novi is like very few women in Hollywood. She’s an unapologetic product of the studios: After 20 years, she still has a rare overall deal at Warner Bros, where she was Tim Burton’s longtime producer (“Edward Scissorhands,” “Ed Wood,” “Nightmare Before Christmas,” his “Batman” films) as well as the shepherd to romantic hits like “Nights of Rodanthe” and Nicholas Sparks’ “A Night to Remember.” And, »

Unforgettable review – Katherine Heigl finally gets her revenge

23 April 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The ultimate uptight blond turns psychotic ex-wife in a silly thriller that tries – and heroically fails – to be the new Fatal Attraction

Poor Katherine Heigl has been typecast as the uptight blond (think the unfortunate trifecta of Knocked Up, 27 Dresses and The Ugly Truth). Here, she at least has fun with that typecasting as tightly wound and sleekly coiffed troublemaker Tessa. A Bay Area psycho Barbie, Tessa is determined to make life difficult for her beer-brewing, rent-a-hunk, ex-husband’s (Geoff Stults) new girlfriend, Julia (a heroic Rosario Dawson, playing it as straight as the hammy script will allow). Enjoyable, too, is the inversion of the black best friend trope, with Julia’s supportive, zany bestie played by Whitney Cummings of 2 Broke Girls.

Movie super-producer Denise Di Novi’s directorial debut casts itself as an erotic thriller in the tradition of Fatal Attraction; to me, it had more in common with »

Unforgettable review – Katherine Heigl goes gaslighting in a glossy erotic noir

21 April 2017 12:30 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Firmly in the mould of 80s thrillers like Basic Instinct or Jagged Edge, this outrageous revenge romp won’t win any awards, but is hugely watchable

Here is the week’s entirely innocent pleasure: a cheerfully outrageous gloss-trash erotic noir in the style that legendary screenwriter Joe Eszterhas used to crank out so lucratively in the 80s and 90s – we are plunged back into the world of Basic Instinct or Jagged Edge or indeed The Hand That Rocks the Cradle (written by Amanda Silver).

Katherine Heigl takes the creepy blondeopath role (which, in an earlier era, would have gone to Rebecca De Mornay) playing Tessa, the once-perfect wife and mother who has now been divorced for infidelity and lives near her ex-husband David (Geoff Stults). He has remarried online publishing editor Julia, played by Rosario Dawson. Tessa is furious that David and Julia get custody of her mini-me daughter two days a week and, »

Unforgettable Review

20 April 2017 2:25 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For how long must misguided romantic thrillers extinguish perverse genre passions? The Boy Next Door set a recent bar for camp-tastic obsessing and killing in the name of love, one that movies like Unforgettable limbo under in the full upright position. Director Denise Di Novi pits ex-wife against bride-to-be, but fumbles tone like a nervous virgin unclasping his or her first bra. Katherine Heigl is less Psycho Stepford Barbie and more Bride Of Frankenstein – in that she emotes the villainy of a dead corpse. When going the route of fake online profiles and orgasm by identity theft, why sell insanity short? At the very least, don’t serve up such easy puns with a title like Unforgettable – which, unsurprisingly, is pretty damn forgettable.

Rosario Dawson stars as Julia Banks, future wife of David Connover (Geoff Stults). Julia uproots her life and moves in with David, beginning their new California adventure together. »

Movie Review: A psycho Katherine Heigl is the only memorable part of Unforgettable

20 April 2017 11:55 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Like last year’s When The Bough Breaks, the new female-focused psycho-stalker thriller Unforgettable seeks to occupy that sweet spot between Fatal Attraction and the Lifetime Movie Network. Unlike that earlier film, though, Unforgettable goes for an R rating, allowing it to fully embrace the “erotic” in erotic thriller. So how did it end up being so, well, forgettable, right up until its howlingly campy climax?

The answer may lie in the film’s awkwardly self-conscious characterization of Julia (Rosario Dawson), an editor for an ill-defined storytelling website called Chapter Pad. It seems to be some sort of crowd-sourced publishing platform, but it’s hard to tell, as Julia never really does any work. She moves from San Francisco to Southern California to be with her stubbly fiancé, David (Geoff Stults), who obviously owns a craft brewery. (Potboiler thrillers rival romantic comedies in the preciousness of their protagonists’ occupations.) Julia »

Unforgettable review: Dir. Denise Di Nova (2017)

20 April 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Unforgettable review: Katherine Heigl returns to the screen for this rather generic psychological thriller where she goes up against Rosario Dawson’s character, a woman who has just moved in with he ex-husband.

Unforgettable review by Paul Heath, April 2017.

Unforgettable review // Warner Bros.

As the title card for Unforgettable was projected onto the screen at the beginning of our preview of the new psychological drama from debut director Denise Di Nova, I could only imagine the thoughts of irony going through my fellow critics’ heads as the film played out before us.

Rosario Dawson and Katherine Heigl lead the cast of Unforgettable, the first directing gig from Denise Di Nova, the super-producer responsible for bringing the likes of Edward Scissorhands, Crazy, Stupid, Love, The Nightmare Before Christmas and Heathers, amongst dozens of others to the screen. With those films, and particularly that last title in mind, there’s absolutely nothing »

‘Unforgettable’ Review: Katherine Heigl and Rosario Dawson Are in Two Very Different Movies, But It Almost Works

20 April 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There are few surprises in “Unforgettable,” the first feature film from longtime producer Denise Di Novi. In hair color, clothing and personality type, the two female leads of this custody-battle-turned-murder-mystery are diametrically opposed at every turn, hurtling toward a final showdown that will probably not end in hugs and an exchange of floral arrangements. But there’s something about the way that Di Novi and writer Christina Hodson never stray from this dynamic that gives the movie a strange heightened, camp-adjacent appeal.

Unforgettable” treats this central struggle over the heart of a family in the same way that a recent Ken Watanabe character does, by surveying the battlefield and coming to a simple, definitive conclusion: “Let them fight.”

The setup for this feud is as simple as its execution. New SoCal transplant Julia Banks (Rosario Dawson) is fresh off a move from a publishing gig in New York to be »

Film Review: ‘Unforgettable’

20 April 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Nat King Cole sang “Unforgettable,” he meant the word as a compliment. Not so the Hollywood movie of the same name, in which two crazy exes refuse to be ignored as they attempt to ruin Rosario Dawson’s wedding — one, played by Katherine Heigl, so icily sociopathic that it’s too bad the borderline-campy movie wasn’t willing to go full tilt into B-movie “psycho-Barbie” territory.

A strange choice of directorial debut for longtime Tim Burton enabler Denise Di Novi (whose credits include producing “Heathers,” “Edward Scissorhands” and “Crazy, Stupid, Love”), “Unforgettable” is anything but what its title suggests, dissipating into vapor as soon as the credits roll. But it’s tawdry “Sleeping With the Enemy”-style fun while it lasts, boasting a better cast and splashier production values than the next closest Lifetime movie, while being so ridiculous at times that audiences can’t help but talk back to the screen. »

'Unforgettable' Review: Vengeful-Female Thriller Is Pure Sexist Exploitation

20 April 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Unforgettable is definitely the wrong title for a movie you want to erase from your memory the second it ends. Times are hard for women filmmakers, so it's troubling news when talented producer Denise Di Novi (Heathers, Edward Scissorhands, Crazy Stupid Love) chooses to make her directing debut with a film that recycles every Psycho Barbie cliché in the Hollywood handbook. On TV's Feud, Ryan Murphy created an FX series to show how male executives manufactured a war between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford to sell tickets to Whatever Happened »

Exclusive: 'Unforgettable' Star Simon Kassianides Talks Working With Rosario Dawson and Katherine Heigl

19 April 2017 3:35 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Simon Kassianides is dishing on his role in the upcoming thriller Unforgettable.

The film, which finds the 37-year-old British actor co-starring alongside Rosario Dawson, Katherine Heigl, Geoff Stults and Isabella Rice, centers around a scorned ex-wife's obsession with ruining her former husband's new relationship.

Heigl plays the ex-wife, Tessa Connover, while Dawson portrays her ex-husband's new love, Julia Banks.

Kassianides, who plays the nefarious Michael Vargas, couldn't help but gush about working on a film with "strong" and "powerful women."

"I think that I've been lucky to have worked with two names up there that, you know, when it's a certain level of professionalism, it always comes down to the work and actually always falls back to that theatrical rehearsal space for me," Kassianides tells Et's Jennifer Peros.

Rosario Dawson, Denise Di Novi Talk Female Empowerment at 'Unforgettable' Premiere

19 April 2017 2:48 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Katherine Heigl, Rosario Dawson, Geoff Stults and Cheryl Ladd came together Tuesday night to celebrate the premiere of the thriller film Unforgettable at the Tcl Chinese Theater in Hollywood.

Known predominantly for her roles in romantic comedies, Heigl changes things up in Unforgettable, playing Tessa, a disgruntled ex-wife who antagonizes and harasses the new woman in her ex’s life.

Although the film on its surface is about Tessa’s jealousy and how she will stop at nothing to ruin Julia (Dawson) and David’s (Stults) new life together, it also explores themes of women empowerment.

Fate Of The Furious Faces A Forgettable Foursome -- The Weekend Warrior

19 April 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out. 

Will This April Dump Weekend See Any New Movie Open Over $10 Million?

After the decent opening of last week’s The Fate of the Furious--though not quite as much as I predicted--it’s going to be hard for any new movie to make a mark against its second weekend even if it drops 55% or more this weekend, which is very likely. 

Probably the best bet to make money this weekend is the thriller Unforgettable (Warner Bros.), which pits Kathryn Heigl against Rosario Dawson and is the directorial debut by producer Denise Di Novi (Crazy, Stupid, Love). It also stars Geoff Stults as the ex-husband of Heigl’s character Tessa, who becomes engaged to Dawson’s Julia, making her the stepmom to the former’s daughter, »

Can Fate of the Furious Continue Its Box Office Winning Streak?

18 April 2017 10:29 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As expected, Universal's The Fate of the Furious debuted in grand fashion last weekend, setting a new box office record for a global opening weekend of $531.9 million, although its $98.7 million domestic debut was far from any sort of record. Over the past few years, the Fast & Furious franchise has established its dominance in the month of April, typically posting huge debuts and repeating atop the box office charts for several weeks in a row, before the summer movie season officially gets under way. The Fate of the Furious is expected to follow that pattern, repeating atop the box office with $49.2 million, easily beating out five new films arriving in nationwide release.

Box Office Mojo reports that, of the five new releases, most will debut in less than half the theaters that Fast & Furious 8 debuted in last weekend (4,310). Warner Bros.' Unforgettable will have the widest release of the bunch with roughly 2,350 theaters, »

Warner Bros. Pictures’ dramatic thriller Unforgettable is the first film in the director’s chair for veteran producer Denise Di Novi (“Crazy, Stupid, Love,” “Focus”).

Katherine Heigl (“27 Dresses,” “Knocked Up”), Rosario Dawson (the “Sin City” films) and Geoff Stults (TV’s “The Odd Couple”), star in the film. “Unforgettable” marks a reunion for Heigl and Di Novi, who previously collaborated on “Life as We Know It.”
