Storyline

Crime novelist Catherine Tramell is living in London, and becomes the center of police investigation (yet again) when her football player boyfriend drowns in a car accident and it is revealed that he was already dead because of a drug overdose before Tramell drove the car into water. Police psychoanalyst Dr. Michael Glass is called for examining Tramell, and is intrigued by the seductive and manipulative woman. On the other hand , his friend Det. Roy Washburn is sure Tramell is guilty. Tramell asks Glass to treat her for her 'risk addiction' problem, and with each therapy session , Glass gets more and more suspicious about her intentions. As more and more murders are committed, including that of Glass's ex-wife, Glass becomes obsessed with proving Tramell's guilt even though the evidence is contradictory . Written by Soumitra

Trivia

Was greenlit several years before it actually reached production, but was halted because Sharon Stone vetoed several actors who auditioned for the Glass role, including the producer's favorite Benjamin Bratt. See more »

Goofs

Unless Catherine is wearing wigs or hair extensions, the length of her hair is inconsistent. For example, at the party she attends with Gerst, she has a very short fringe just extending beyond her hairline. The following day, at her appointment with Michael (where she asks him how he fantasizes about her), she has eyebrow-length bangs parted in the middle. See more »

This movie was great! Come on people!
4 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have no idea what people are complaining about. I saw this movie yesterday and I really liked it. Stone once again delivered a great character. She was just as good as she was in the first Basic Instinct. She still has those smart but tricky answers. Although Sharon may be 48 years old... she looks amazing! I don't care if she's as fake as a Barbie. She looks good and that's that. Basic Instinct 2 gives you everything you want from the first. Sex, violence, and a great ending that will leave you thinking and talking about it for hours! Half the people commenting on this movie haven't even saw it. So don't listen to them.
