Unforgettable Review

Good

With heavy echoes of trashy thrillers like Fatal Attraction, this movie overcomes its painfully simplistic script with plenty of nasty nuttiness. It may be a problem that none of this is intentionally hilarious, but the audience will enjoy giggling along as the only barely defined characters get pushed into increasingly grisly situations that all hinge on corny coincidences and the fact that no one talks to each other. Yes, it's terrible, but also a guilty pleasure.

It's set in suburban Southern California, where Julia (Rosario Dawson) has just moved to live with her hunky fiance David (Geoff Stults), who runs a micro-brewery. He also shares custody of his daughter Lily (Isabella Kai Rice) with his super-sleek ex-wife Tessa (Katherine Heigl), who clearly wants him back. So of course she sets out to make Julia's life miserable, all while smiling not-so-innocently. Her masterstroke is to lure Julia's violent ex (Simon Kassianides) to town once the restraining order against him expires. And of course, Tessa is carefully making it look like Julia's the one who's losing her marbles.

Director-producer Denise Di Novi lays this on thickly, with ominous musical undertones every time Heigl appears on-screen, to remind us that she's up to something nefarious. As if we didn't already know that by her pinched expression, uber-flattened hairstyle and tightly fitted dresses. Heigl generates some sympathy for Tessa as the woman scorned, and the appearance of her even more monstrous mother (Cheryl Ladd) adds the idea that she couldn't help growing up into this manipulative creep. Meanwhile, Dawson does some serious acting as Julia, a woman trying her best in a very difficult situation. On the other hand, it's impossible to understand how her brain works, especially when she continually withholds key information about both her past and her present from David.

Katherine Heigl And Rosario Dawson Enjoyed Their Flawed Unforgettable Characters


Katherine Heigl Rosario Dawson

The new thriller Unforgettable harks back to the heyday of trashy female-led revenge movies like Fatal Attraction, as Katherine Heigl's Tessa makes life a nightmare for her ex-husband's new fiancee Julia, played by Rosario Dawson. The stars say they wanted to do something different with the genre.

"We tried to make them real people in real situations," Dawson says. "The stuff that's happening, while it may be really entertaining on-screen, when that happens in real life, not so much. So it's not just a traditional chick flick where we're only making this for women. I love that it's testing well with men too. We can make a story that everybody can relate to, because we're being honest."

Jenny's Wedding Trailer


To Jenny's family, she's always been somewhat of a loner. Even though she's the oldest sibling, as far as they're aware she still lives a bachelorette lifestyle with her roommate in the city.

When Jenny returns home for the christening of the newest member of their family, it doesn't take her mother and father long to start the usual 'when are you going to find a man and settle down' lecture. Finally caving to their questioning, Jenny lets slip that she is in a relationship and that this partner might just be the one that she's ready to settle down with. What all Jenny's family don't know is that her partner is actually her current roommate Kitty.

After years of living together and being open about their relationship with their city friends, Jenny comes out to her parents and announces her wish to marry the love of her life. Having lived a sheltered existence, this comes as a huge shock to Eddie and Rose and neither know how to take the news - asking Jenny to keep her partner a secret. As time passes and the lie becomes unmanagable, the Farrell family find themselves being pulled apart. To find a way to keep their family together, each must face facts and find a way to adapt to make a future together.

Katherine Heigl Returning To Television, But Why Does She Have One Of Hollywood's Worst Reputations?


Katherine Heigl

Katherine Heigl is returning to the small screen, as NBC has announced it is picking up her new drama, ‘State of Affairs’ for a full season run. Heigl first made her name on the small screen as Izzie Stevens in 'Grey’s Anatomy,' for which she won a Primetime Emmy award. But by the time Heigl ended her Grey’s run in 2010 it seemed like all the drama was happening for the actress off the screen. Since then a slightly sour reputation has followed Heigl around Hollywood. But where exactly does all the Heigl hating come from?
