When a 'Single White Female' places an ad in the press for a similar woman to rent a room (to replace the boyfriend she's just left), all the applicants seem weird. Then along comes a level headed woman who seems to be just right. The new lodger has a secret past which haunts her. Written by
For the scene where Jennifer Jason Leigh seduces Bridget Fonda's boyfriend, without him realizing at first that she isn't who he thinks she is, Leigh was still having her make-up applied so the scene was shot with Bridget Fonda playing her own double. It was only the first part of the scene where the woman gets into bed (shot from the back) which Fonda did, as Leigh's character, as Fonda's character. The rest is done by Leigh. See more »

[Sam talks to Allie while laying in bed]
So how many kids do we want?
I don't know. What's the statistical norm?
Oh... You and your statistics. One point two.
Hm... Okay, then I want two point two. And I want them to look like you.
Oh, those poor kids.

I saw this movie in theater in 1992 and remember it being very entertaining and somewhat racy. Fourteen years later the film holds up well to the test of time. A major difference is in the level of nudity between this film and the thrillers of today. Bridget Fonda and Jennifer Jason Leigh are hot! lets see them naked and often. Barbet schroeder understands this, and we see them both naked from the onset of the film. The story and acting develop well, the dialog is well written and the camera work is adequate.
Jennifer Jason Leigh steals the show in this film, she does a superb job handling the transition in the character of Heddy with her body language and shyness into the transition of a sexually charged woman, who is assertive and obviously losing her grip on reality. She takes more risks and becomes bold and violent. Overall much better and more entertaining than any of the crap you will find being made today in Hollywood. Don't expect Shakespeare and just enjoy the ride.
