Something different....sinceBy a customer from SW London , 30 May 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]This movie is in the genre of 'Disclosure' meets 'Fatal Attraction' but with a slight difference. I didn't expect to enjoy the movie as much as I did.While good looking Elba's character eyes out the new office eye candy, temp played by Larter, he soon finds that she intends to take things alot further even though he's sensible enough not to risk his marriage to the stunning wife, played by Beyonce. But loony temp girl constructs a whole relationship in her mind with the gorgeous married man. It's clear that she wants what his wife has a beautiful, home, husband and kid, and she will stop at nothing to get it, not even Elba's constant no's.In the end there is a head on between the two after his wife almost leaves him not believing him when he says he had nothing to do with her. Okay the fight scenes between Larter and Knowles were brilliant. This is a real gutsy film, not the usual drivel from Hollywood, with this one.

Poor and predictableBy sam1990 (3 reviews) , 01 Sep 2011
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideHad to sent this film back after 30 minutes of viewing. Predictable movie. No real story line. Average acting. If you want to rent this out, expect an afternoon movie which is normaly shown on channel 5. Very average, if that!
Who has time for that?By a customer , 01 Sep 2011
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideI don't understand. Why would you get so obsessed with someone? Could you even be bothered?! Who has time for that?
And [spoilers] I KNEW she was going through that coffee table as soon as I saw it.
Pleasantly surprisedBy larterman (10 reviews) , 22 Aug 2011Only rented as Ive been a big Ali Larter fan for many years. To be honest I wasnt expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. Never was going to be a oscar winner but there is enough here to keep you entertained.
Somewhat predictable in places but worth a look if this is your type of film.
i wasnt much obsessed about this film.By Em1981 (133 reviews) from London , 21 Aug 2011People said this film was good, but Beyonce should stick to singing. I found it rather dull and Idris Elba as Derek did a lacklustre performance the actress who played Lisa although her character was clearly psychotic wasnt much better and it was completely hammed up and over the top. I wouldnt bother if you want to see a film in this kind of vein. Single white female i would highly recommend.
Obsessed it's a yesBy 1of6 (120 reviews) from Aberdare , 09 Jul 2011Yes on the whole it was a watchable film. I was surprised at the acting, impressed may be a bit of an overstatement though.
