Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Obsessed is one of those movies best described as “a stylish thriller”: the characters are mostly young and gorgeous, with their white-collar gigs, designer duds, and fancy cars, and if there’s not much of substance to be found beneath those sleek, polished surfaces, well, who says a story must have a message to be entertaining? The comparisons to Fatal Attraction (with its jilted would-be lover going all psycho on the object of her, uh, affections) and Disclosure (with its reverse sexual harassment) are apt enough, but Obsessed is a little different. For starters, unlike the character played by Michael Douglas in Attraction, this film’s Derek Charles (Idris Elba) does little to encourage Lisa Sheridan (Ali Larter), the temp worker at his asset-management firm who gloms onto him like a lamprey sucking on its unwilling host; for another, Derek’s wife, Sharon (Beyonce Knowles), is no wallflower who stands idly and ignorantly by while her life is shredded by her hubby’s evasions and the increasingly crazed tactics of the woman who’s stalking him (it’s to the credit of director Steve Shill and screenwriter David Loughery that nothing whatsoever is made of the fact that Derek is black and Lisa is white). Still, the holes in the plot are big enough to drive several Mercedes sedans through. For one thing, Lisa’s fixation on Derek seems to come out of nowhere (if she has a past, we’re not told about it); what's more, even if Derek has broken his deal with Sharon not to have any female assistants (she was once one herself), it seems mighty extreme for her to kick him out of the house for three months simply for not coming completely clean about his mostly-innocent dealings with Lisa. Still, the film manages to make the viewer feel Derek’s helpless desperation at being targeted by this manipulative nut job, and when Sharon finally confronts her family’s tormentor at the end (“You think you’re crazy? I’ll show you crazy!”), the result is silly but somehow satisfying. --Sam Graham

2.0 out of 5 stars Dreck May 24, 2009
A totally predictable retread of the jilted lover movies that seem to pop up every decade or so. This is a silly, faux thriller that leaves no cliche uncovered. I think the whole script was written for Beyonce to have her "you-go-girl" lines during the absurd girl fight sceen. The screen play is at least under 120 minutes --well just barely. That's the good news. The real problem is the utterly atrotious acting. Terrible doesn't describe Beyonce's acting ability. She may be a great singer, but if she were on an acting version of American Idol she would be one of the first to get rejected, you know, in those first two weeks where we see all the hacks to laugh at. Idris Elba as Derek Charles is OK and only makes a few minor novice errors, but he could have been anyone. I will commit no more words to this horrible flick other then to warn potential victims of move theater prices to save your money. Rent if you must. Two stars only for the baby's fine acting.

1.0 out of 5 stars On no she didn't! August 2, 2009
Format:DVD
Want to see a supremely watered down version of Fatal Attraction? If so, look no further than Obsessed, a potboiler that holds back much more than it succeeds in terms of being a potboiler. The Wire's Idris Elba stars as a successful corporate man who also plays loving family man to his wife (Beyonce Knowles), and soon becomes the target of psychotic young temp (Heroes' Ali Larter). Wholly predictable and cliche, Obsessed is mind numbingly dull from beginning to end, but I guess this is the kind of thing that passes for suspense these days that mainstream audiences seem to eat right up. Elba is disappointing wasted in his role, while Knowles and Larter do their respective parts at looking gorgeous, and doing nothing else as well. All in all, Obsessed is something that you could easily save yourself a few brain cells by not giving the time of day, and spending your viewing time on something more worthwhile.

1.0 out of 5 stars Strictly avoidable February 17, 2010
Format:DVD
A movie that borrows its theme from A hand that rocks the cradle, Disclosure and Fatal Attraction is a movie that stars Idris Elba, Beyonce and Ali Larter. Beyonce and Idris are a young couple who are in love and trouble comes in the form of obsessive Ali Larter as Lisa Sheridan who is a temp in Idris's office. She becomes obsessed with Idris and trouble ensues. It is up to the wife, to take matters in her hands.
I thought the movie was badly directed with no chemistry between Idris and Beyonce. Idris was great in the Wire but is wasted. Beyonce needs some acting lessons because she is extremely wooden and unconvincing as the wife scorned. There are several holes in the story which are unexplained, like Lisa's past. I only watched this movie because it was on Netflix instant play and my next rental had not arrived. I give it one star. 2/17/10

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother! July 24, 2011
By CK Webb
Format:DVD
'Obsessed' was written by David Loughery and directed by Steve Shill. The movie stars Idris Elba, Ali Larter, Beyonce Knowles and Jerry O'Connell. The trailer for 'Obsessed' had me fired up and ready to see a fantastic movie, however, the trailer ended up being the best part. I struggled to sit through this flick and was disturbed over the $3.00 I had spent to rent it! We have all seen this movie before. It was called 'Fatal Attraction'. The difference being that there was none of that pesky sex stuff to make us understand how our villainess became so enthralled with our married, male lead!
The acting in 'Obsessed' was much like watching a fourth grade play (No offence forth graders), and very quickly made me come to the conclusion that not all singers can act, regardless of their efforts...sorry Ms. Knowles! Ali Larter, on the other hand, played a fantastic psycho but the movie's dullness and lack of luster threw a dark veil over her performance. If you are looking for a good DVD this weekend, Obsessed IS NOT IT ! Surprisingly, this movie grossed $68 million dollars at the box office. Good thing there is a no-refund policy on box office hits...or in this case, misses!

1.0 out of 5 stars So Horrible on Every Level - Fails Even as Camp ! August 22, 2010
Format:DVD
This pathetic film is'nt even a watered down version of "Fatal Attraction," but instead a stinking stew pot of "The Hand the Rocks the Cradle," "Disclosure," "Waiting to Exhale," and "Play Misty for Me," all superior films to this tripe. "Obsessed" seems to exist for two simple reasons: to portray a black man as the Victim of a white woman, and to give Beyonce Knowles a chance to "Kick some ass." It fails on both accounts. Idris Elba looks like a younger Magic Johnson (ironically one of the Producers of this mess) but he acts like an Idiot: instead of taking care of the Stalker/Nut Job with a quick visit to Human Resources, he allows Ms. Lauter's Lisa to keep harassing him until it's too late. Ms. Lauter is a completely unconvincing Psycho. She seems more concerned with good camera angles and her skimpy wardrobe. But she looks like Meryl Streep compared to Beyonce Knowles. Ms. Knowles struggles to bring any sympathy to her character and while she looks great and treats us to some new songs (!) , she simply can't act. Period. And when she finally gets to "Kick some Ass," it is so poorly choreographed and ridiculous, it is too little too late. Add in every movie cliche: the Cops finger the wrong person, the Hero looks guilty, blah blah blah. I hope the Actors at least got paid well for this.
