Storyline

Unsuccessfully framed for his wife's murder, Dr. David Krane attempts to find the real culprit by utilizing a new drug that allows him to experience the memories of other people first-hand. As he gets closer to the truth, the injections begin to take their toll on his life. Additionally, a history of alcoholism, a career crisis, and the involvement of police officers in the murder all conspire to prevent Dr. Crane from learning what really happened. The challenge, then, is for the doctor to overcome these obstacles before his time runs out. Written by Mike Yaffe <myaffe@harris.com>

Goofs

During the flashback of Gleick's interview of Krane, he says that Krane's blood alcohol level was "2.5". He most likely meant .25, or just over three times the limit deemed legally impaired (in most places). For Krane to have been at 2.5, he would have been five times over what is most likely a fatal amount. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Dr. David Krane: [arriving] Hey.
Curtis Avery: Hey. Look at this, how is it they always get here before we do?
Dr. David Krane: The police band radios.
Curtis Avery: No, that was a rhetorical question, David. That was one to which I didn't really expect an answer.
Dr. David Krane: You know me Curtis, I think most of them will look better in plastic-zipper suits. You got the smoke?
Curtis Avery: No, I think it's something like fingerprints, we can just guess... Yeah, I brought the smoke.

Entertaining sci-fi thriller
3 October 2001 | by See all my reviews

There have been harsh words about this "unforgettable",probably exaggerated.This could be some kind of update of "spellbound"(1945) and it recalls sometimes" D.O.A. "with Dennis Quaid and Meg Ryan (1988) ,and even "Jennifer eight"(1992)with Andy Garcia (the latter for the murderer's identity).Except for Hitchcock's classic,of course , the movies I mention had disastrous reviews.And however,they have much more imaginative scripts than ,say,"die hard" (one,two or three,take your pick,they are interchangeable)

Script for "unforgettable" is more polished than it has been given credit for.It's stunning when,in the end,the two stories come together,this time recalling "dead again" (K.Brannagh ,1991),another movie with an unfairly mediocre reputation;only 2 stars and a half on the Maltin!OK ,the plot for "unforgettable" is far-fetched,but it has an intern logic,and anyway,is it less credible than B.Willis singlehandedly taming a whole bunch of terrorists ?(Die Hard is rated 3 stars!)

Ray Liotta is an actor whose parts are not always worthy of himself.He's convincing here:during the whole movie,his face remains sad,wistful,as if he were waging an almost lost war.He rarely smiles,except when he's with his daughters.Linda Fiorentino,once she's provided Liotta with her drug,is not very important for the action (definitely not Ingrid Bergman in "spellbound").And we will be very thankful to Dahl for sparing us the umpteenth love affair between the patient and his doctor.More,we have here a very original ending,marred by the syrupy eponymous song though.It might be a happy end,after all,and which justifies the title.

All in all,it's an entertaining movie,mixing smartly sci-fi,thriller,and whodunit.It could become a sleeper.
