I checked out Defamer’s Sharon Stone post today which made me crack a few laughs.Â In honor of Basic Instinct 2 appearing in theatres this weekend, enjoy this little post to get your excitement and anticipation going.
“In honor of Sharon Stone’s courageous contribution to the pantheon of ridiculously bad movies gay men will quote frequently, we offer a round-up of today’s scathing Basic Instinct 2 reviews :
“Â· “It should come as no surprise that “Basic Instinct 2,” the long-gestating follow-up to Paul Verhoeven’s 1992 blip on the zeitgeist screen, is a disaster of the highest or perhaps lowest order. ” [NY Times]
Â· “At this point, there are inflatable toys that are livelier than Stone, but how can you tell the difference? “Basic Instinct 2″ is not an erotic thriller. It’s taxidermy.” [NY Post]
Â· “What we may very well be looking at here is another “Showgirls,” a drag camp-fest for the “Baby Jane” crowd, fabulous fodder for future cabaret acts, and a pleasure probably best enjoyed in a crowd — preferably a vocal one.” [LAT]
Â· “The plot has no credibility. The goings-on are not suspenseful, despite a series of gory slayings.” [USA Today]
Â· “Absurdly overheated and unforgivably dull, “Basic Instinct 2″ is the accidental comedy sensation of the year to date, and while some of the people involved seem to be in on the joke, director Michael Caton-Jones isn’t one of them.” [Boston Globe]
Â· “It doesn’t help that co-star Morrissey — who serves as the audience point of view and has most of the screen time — is a charisma-challenged non-entity. Clearly, the producers could not induce a male star of any stature to take on the thankless role.” [Seattle PI]
Â· “Where is the suspense part? There is no suspense part. Suspense demands clarity of motive and action, and this screenplay never provides it.” [Washington Post]””
Wishing you all good weekends full of fun and lacking stabbing ice picks.Â See you Monday with my own Instinct review & the Sharon Stone is aÂ Sexy OldÂ LadyÂ post.
