Alex slits her wrists after she gets angry with Dan. Later on, when she goes to meet with Beth about buying the apartment, she has a wristwatch on one arm and a set of bracelets on the other. However, in a shot before Beth gives Alex their phone number, the bracelets fall farther down Alex's arm, and you can see that her wrist is smooth without any scarring. See more »

When preview audiences hated this ending, a new one was shot (where Alex is killed by Dan's wife with a gun). The original ending still appears in the Japanese release and was added to the US video and laser editions. See more »
I'm from China. My English is not very good. So the first time I comment a movie I chose a simple one. I saw "Fatal Attraction" the day before.
I have seen a few of Michael Douglas's movies. And I found he kept taking the same kind script and role for himself. He was a lawyer who had another affair with an attractive woman. By which the relationship brought him a lot of troubles.Even make his life over.
I have to say that Michael had just given his basic performance, nothing special, and nothing would light his career at that moment. Meanwhile, Glen Close did a great job in the movie. We could touch her weird feeling, and her extreme mental troubles. You might even understand what she had done to Michael's family.
This story told that sometimes an unfaithful relationship not only brought one night sexual enjoyment, but also ruined one's life.
