Basically Speaking
Angela Henry

Okay. I broke down and did something this weekend I swore I wasn't going to do. I went and saw Basic Instinct 2. Despite the fact that the critics soundly trashed this movie, I couldn't resist finding out what ole murderous, mystery writing Catherine Tramell was up to these days. So, I contributed my $4.75 to the movie's pitiful box office take. I was one of exactly three people in the theatre. And to be honest, I didn't think the movie was that bad. Now, mind you there were some crack up lines that I'm sure weren't supposed to be funny and the leading man, David Morrissey, was more cerebral than sexy. But there was actually a fairly decent plot underneath Stone's vamping for the camera. And her wardrobe was to die for, no pun intended. I think the main problem with the movie was that it should have been made ten years ago. Despite the fact that Sharon Stone looks damned good for her age, people have lost interest in seeing her in this role, and wisely there was no beaver shot this time. Thank God! But fear not. I hear that Basic Instinct 3 already has a partial script.
