Skeletons in the closet . . . and a she-devil on her trail
A TWISTED revenge thriller with echoes of Fatal Attraction, Unforgettable promises more than it eventually delivers, and indeed ends up being the precise opposite of its title. By the time you’ve passed the pick ’n’ mix on your way out of the cinema, you’ll barely remember it.
Rosario Dawson stars as Julia, a woman with a hunky fiancé, David (Geoff Stults), and a chance of a new beginning out west. Her last relationship ended badly, with domestic violence and a restraining order. But David seems a proper catch. She doesn’t tell him about her violent ex.
The only hitch, but what a hitch, is that David comes with a daughter and an uptight ex-wife, Tessa (Katherine Heigl), who finds the skeletons in Julia’s closet and plots her downfall.
Most of this is well acted, much is wellscripted, but film gets overwrought and plain silly. When Cheryl Ladd appeared, I could hardly contain my mirth.
