Michael Douglas was also working on the film Wall Street (1987) at the same time as this film. To avoid a schedule conflict, Douglas would alternate between each film during the week. See more »
The tape recording that Dan listens to in his study is different than the one he listens to in his car. Alex's tone of voice is different, and additional talking is added. Also, it is impossible for Dan to put the tape in the cassette and listening to the same things she says without rewinding the tape first. See more »
For a movie now going on 22 years, Fatal Attraction is a still a worthwhile thriller.
Glenn Close gives a great performance. I felt like I had seen the movie already due to the numerous references to it in pop-culture throughout the years. As such I was probably not as shocked as I otherwise would have been. Nonetheless there are still some genuinely disturbing moments in this. One thing I have always wondered is why Glenn Close is the temptress in this, as good an actress as she is, I can't find her the least bit attractive. Although, in this she is actually done up to look quite pretty and I think another actress could've pulled off the psychopath woman-scorned act quite like she did.
Speaking of which, how many hot sex scenes has Michael Douglas been involved in? Sharon Stone and Demi Moore if you don't mind. Lucky bastard! Anyway, he was good in this too. Overall, not a bad flick.
