Trivia

Meg Ryan was the original choice to play Connie, but Alyssa Milano was cast. After she was forced to turn the role down due to her commitment to the TV series Charmed (1998), these actresses were offered the role (and they turned it down too): Portia de Rossi; Jodie Foster (she chose to star in Panic Room (2002)); Kristin Davis (she had a commitment to the TV series Sex and the City (1998)); Portia de Rossi; Kyra Sedgwick; Brooke Shields; Hilary Swank; Kate Winslet Also, Tori Spelling was briefly considered for the role. Even though Josie Davis and Angelina Jolie auditioned for the role, they lost out to Diane Lane.

Quotes

Connie Sumner: Talk to me. Tell me what you did.
Edward Sumner: No, you tell me what you did! How you fucked him over and over and over, you lied to me over and over and over.
Connie Sumner: Edward, please.
Edward Sumner: No, you don't talk to me now. I gave everything... for this family. Everything... and what did you do? You threw it all away like it was nothing. For what? To a fucking kid!

A summer blockbuster for adults
18 May 2002 | by (Woodbridge,VA) – See all my reviews

Adrian Lyne has succuced once again in making a film about the consquences of an affair. While the trailer leads you to belive the film is like Fatal Attraction it's nothing like it. The acting by Richard Gere is some of his best work in a long time, but the tour deforce performance in he movie belongs to Diane Lane. Lane gives an Oscar worthy performace as the wife of Gere. Diane Lane sexuality in the film is so sensual and awe insprining I would cheat with her my damn self. I highly reccomned this film.
