Storyline

A woman attempts suicide when she suspects her husband doesn't love her and is having an affair. Now she's wheelchair-bound, and her husband, who indeed doesn't love her and is having an affair, hires a private nurse to look after his wife. The nurse begins to suspect that she was hired because of unproven allegations that she murdered someone's wife in a similar situation, that the husband wants her to murder his wife.

Cheapie Basic Instinct really stinks
20 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen a film with Margaux Hemingway for awhile and now remember that she talks just like Carol Channing in need of a voice coach. Tanya Roberts is not much better. Tanya seems to be saying "tough stuff" in a monotone so often her dialog sounds dubbed from reading off screen. The film seems to aim for violent kills and eroticism every five minutes and can't decide which flavor it wants to dish out more of, each very badly. Some of the lines are so mechanical it makes you laugh at the wrong time. Voice over: "It seems like the two were involved in some type of conspiracy." Well, very unnatural wording indeed. Movies like these make you wish every copy of Basic Instinct was shredded before any human being ever looked at it.
