Editorial Reviews

A hot chick with an ice pick takes a stab at loveand laughter in this hysterically funny spooffrom the director of The Jerk and Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid. As the all-star cast pokes hilarious fun at such steamy thrillers as Basic Instinct, Fatal Attraction, Sleeping with the Enemy and Cape Fear. Lana. Laura. Lola. They're beautiful, sexy and all after Ned Ravine! One wants to marry him. One wants to kill him. And the other just plain wants him dead or alive!

4.0 out of 5 stars FATALLY FUNNY March 25, 2006
Format:DVD
Carl Reiner's FATAL INSTINCT is a surprisingly funny spoof of movies like FATAL ATTRACTION, BASIC INSTINCT, AND CHINATOWN. It benefits from a lot of AIRPLANE like sight gags and some wonderful one liners tossed off by its unusual cast. Armand Assante, not known for comedic roles, is very funny as the cop/lawyer embroiled in with a beautiful stalker (Sean Young in a sexy performance), and a greedy wife (the usually dramatic Kate Nelligan just perfect in this role) and her dumb lover (Christopher McDonald) who plan to bump him off. Add a vindictive ex-con (James Remar), a devoted secretary (Sherilyn Fenn) and Judge Tony Randall and you have the ingredients for a rather hilarious send up. I laughed a lot and I think you will too!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie. But DVD is lacking. May 1, 2003
By Jon
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I loved this movie. It was hilarious. It is a spoof tha twas a response to the rash of, I don't how else to put it, "troubled marriage" movies that came out around this time. It makes fun of Fatal Attraction as well as Sleeping with the Enemy. Absolutly hilarious. HOWEVER, is only comes in STANDARD. I do not understand why a wide screen version is not available. The direector originally intended the movie to be widescreen. Keep it that way. If you must have one side of the DVD Standard and the other side widescreen. Grrr....

5.0 out of 5 stars Armand Assante is hilarious! March 11, 2006
Format:DVD
This is one hilarious spoof movie, but what really makes it outstanding is Armand Assante. Seeing Assante playing such a role adds immeasurably to the humor of this movie! Anyone familiar with Assante knows he has always played dramatic/heavy roles until this (check out his performance in "Q&A" with Nick Nolte or "I,the Jury" for powerful examples), and that alone carries this film to must-see status! Truly outstanding!

4.0 out of 5 stars Bad Reviews? I Don't Know Why... November 24, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This movie was slammed by critics. The most common review of this said that there was 'just too many jokes' in it. I watched it with a critical eye, and thought it was a really fun movie.
I didn't laugh out loud with tears running down my face, but did spend the entire run time giggling at the antics of all the characters. The cast consists of several Serious Actors (Kate Nelligan, Armand Assante) who play their parts as though they were in a drama. To me, those are excellent comedic acting skills. It's when actors play for laughs that they are not funny.
You might not be tickled by this one if you aren't familiar with the 'film noir' and detective film genre. If you are a fan of those, you will laugh as you recognize all the devices in those films over-used to good effect in this one.
I had a good time watching it...give it a try!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great spoof movie. February 2, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This is a hilarious movie. If you're into spoof movies, this is a pretty decent one. There is a great mix of wit, one-liners, intellectual humor, and some basic fart humor. To me, Armand Assante wouldn't appear to be a likely candidate for the lead role in a spoof comedy like this, but he nailed it and is quite hilarious in doing so. Just watch it. You'll laugh.

3.0 out of 5 stars For the parody it is, funny in parts February 15, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
It's a parody so if you view it with that in mind, you will enjoy it. Don't expect anything more.

3.0 out of 5 stars See the other movies first. February 8, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
You may find this movie funny. It pokes fun at a couple of other films. Such as, "Fatal Attraction.". It really helps to understand the jokes if you know where they are coming from. That being said, this movie wasn't knee slapping funny but it is well acted and full of plot twists. You could do worse.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Movie
Very much like the airplane movies. The actors play all the lines completely straight. I think it pulls more from Body heat than any other movie.
