Trivia

Movie was originally intended to be filmed at Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, MA. But after reviewing the script treatment, the college president at the time declined (at the last minute), due to the "serial rapist" element. The movie was then quickly moved to Smith College in Northampton, MA. Smith only agreed as long as the college name was changed. See more »

Goofs

Jed said Tracey's blood group was AB negative. He would need to get donors in that type. In fact she could have been given any Rh negative blood type. Group O, A or B would be suitable for someone who is group AB (universal recipient). Only the Rh type (positive or negative) is important and then only to woman of child-bearing age. See more »

Jed,Andy,Tracy and the jack of clubs.
26 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

The first thing to bear in mind is that there are (like in Hitchcock's "family plot",there the comparison ends)TWO distinct plots :

-The threesome Baldwin/Pullman/Kidman and the ominous plans of some of them.

-And then a serial killer who hangs about the campus ,in the college where Andy works.

There's a very thin ,very thin connection between the two stories,and it's a question of ...well I will not write a spoiler.

The screenplay is far-fetched,but has enough unexpected twists to sustain the interest till the very end (yes,even the very last sequence contains a "revelation") But the real meat lies in one sequence.A bewildered Andy pays a visit to an old alcoholic shrew ,played by Mrs Bancroft.Had she had a more important part,she 'd have stolen the show hands down.Every minute of this sequence is a lesson young actresses should pay attention to.Dig the way she delivers the line :"welcome to the club".

"Malice" is fun to watch,after a hard day's labor.Not much food for thought,but entertaining throughout
