Storyline

The film begins when Julia Banks is being questioned by a detective in the murder of her psychotic ex-boyfriend, Michael. Julia claims that she has been set up and that she has nothing to do with the murder, despite social media conversations clearly showing Julia lusting after him. The scene then cuts to six months earlier, with Julia getting a send-off from her boss and friend, Ali, from her job as chief online editor for a storytelling website. Julia is now going to work remotely from the mansion she will be sharing with her new loving fiance, David Connover, and her soon-to-be stepdaughter, Lily. Arriving at David's, she is greeted by David's ex-wife, Tessa, who is still not coping with the end of her marriage two years earlier..

Unforgettable is Completely Forgettable
25 July 2017 | by MinistryofDoomSee all my reviews

Spare yourself from wasting an hour and forty minutes on this miserable poorly acted snorefest. This is a story that we've seen many times before. You know the one about the couple in love who are ready to take the next step in their relationship when suddenly the psychotic ex comes to make things troublesome for them? We've been there before. It isn't new ground, nor is it a unique story anymore. This story takes no effort to make it's self unique from those other films that focused on this very same plot. Had it been different than the others in some way, it would have been better. Furthermore, Unforgettable mostly felt like an evening Lifetime movie and most of the scenes were dreadfully boring and uneventful. It doesn't even begin to entertain until the last 20 minutes. The saving grace is that it stars not one but two beautiful leading ladies: Rosario Dawson (Marvel/Netflix's DareDevil and Luke Cage, Sin City), who was actually the reason I decided to watch this film in the first place, and Katherine Heigl (Knocked Up, Life as We Know It). The tension between Dawson and Heigl at times felt forced and awkward but both did a great job overall. Heigl in her role as the psychotic Barbie- type really made us believe that she was truly unhinged. The way she menacingly glares at Dawson in her scenes. The way you could actually see when her blood begins to boil...she played the role well. The problem is that even though Heigl and Dawson led the film, they were bound by the limitations of bad writing, bad directing, and bad production and no amount of talent from either Heigl nor Dawson could save this film from it's own failures.
