movie: Bad Influence
starring: Rob Lowe, James Spader
genre: Thriller, Crime, Drama
format: TV EDIT
plot: a yuppie who seems to have the world at his feet, looses everything when he's set up for murder.
This was a tv edit so I don't know how much of the plot was edited to fit what the station thought was the main theme.
Normally, I love anything with either actor, but this one left me wishing for a fast forward button. The end of the movie dragged for a bit too long then just ended abruptly. Again, I'm not sure how much of that was the original movie and how much was because it was edited for content and time.
It starts off like a fairly decent movie, but becomes a bit of a nightmare. It's almost like Fatal Attraction for best friends, or a male version of Single White Female. It just doesn't hold up after you get about forty-five minutes into it. I'm not sure I even want to track down a proper unedited version to compare.
I'm adding the "vampire" tag because of it's use of manipulation.
what do i think i learned from this film?
Not much to learn from this
